This is a great way to monetize your site. Members can pay to become Spotlighted and they will be prominently displayed in Spotlight blocks placed strategically throughout the site. This mod makes a perfect companion to our Premium Featured Members mod.
This functionality is integrated with Persons and Organizations. This can be enabled/disabled in the settings. There are separate page blocks for Persons and Organizations.
