microBUSINESS
ver 1.1.0 (Released 16 Oct 2009)

This is the Full Commercial Version
You must *** UNINSTALL *** any other version before



User: demouser
Pass: demopass

Compatible with versions 3.6.x, 3.7.x, 3.8.x


Version 1.0.1 fixes the missing procedures: deleteprofile and deleteitem

To upgrade just upload business.php and re-import product-microbusiness.xml (check overwrite).


This is the Full Commercial Version (1.1.0)
You must *** UNINSTALL *** any other version before


1.- Usage

  • Business directory, Links directory and much more.
  • Each user can has unlimited companies
  • Each company can has unlimited items (shops, links etc)
  • Google Maps
  • Rating and Reviews
2.- Installation










The installation is pretty easy, has been checked many times for installing and uninstalling the product. Just follow these steps below:
  • Download and unzip the file microBUSINESS.zip
  • Open the folder vbulletin and select all files and subfolders inside it
  • Connect to your website and open the directory where is your vBulletin installation (usally forum, forums, portal etc).
  • Upload the selected files to your site. If you fellow the right way then the file business.php must be on the same level as the index.php file of vBulletin.
  • CMOD 777 folders:
    • microbusiness/files/
    • microbusiness/photos/
    • microbusiness/photos/thumbs/
    • microbusiness/photos/tmp
  • Before any new installation is good to backup your database before, even if nobody is doing it (including me). At lease turn your site off
  • Check at your AdminCP->vBulletin Options->Plugin/Hook System that Plugin system is enabled.
  • From your AdminCP->Plugin System->Manage Products choose Add/Import Product and import the product: product-microbusiness.xml
3.- Configuration










As every vBulletin product, you need to make some initial configurations before it goes live.
  • MicroSUPPORT Options
  • Google Map API key. If you plan to use Google maps you must obtain a free api key.
  • Setup categories and feature list (if you plan to use it).
  • Setup usergroup permissions.
4.- Template Modification


The module is using it's own templates, so it doesn't needs any template modification except if you want to add a link to the navbar. In this case you need to modify the NavBar template.


Open it and find:

Don't need to use it, but like it :)

Invalid SQL:
SELECT * FROM microbusiness_features WHERE id= LIMIT 1; error

If no items a blank page is received

Shouldn't items automatically go into the company?

jgommel 08 Jul 2009 05:01

Okay, I want to like this mod, but there are way too many issues in this initial release. For starters, it's not Firefox 3.5 (Mac) friendly at all. The Home/Directory/Companies/User CP tabs do not format correctly in Firefox. When viewing a company, the Overview/Map/Photos/Items links are smashed together.

- I've tried multiple times to upload valid photos with a company, but the photos are never applied.

- There's no option to choose a category when you add a new company. I've added two categories from the AdminCP, but there's no place to choose the category when adding a new company.

- Unable to rate a company.

- This image nophoto.gif is missing from the /microbusiness/images/ folder. I checked my download and verified it's not there. Consequently, all image links are broken.

- If you add a website to a new company, then try to click the Website link on Company Overview it's prefixing like this: http://www.clevelandpaintball.com/fo...tpaintball.com

- While on the Home tab, if a user clicks on Premium Items/Top Rated Items/Popular Items/New Items their taken to a blank white screen.

I've tried this mod on both Safari 4.0.1 and Firefox 3.5 (Mac)

Never thought that FF should not output correctly standard HTML formatting (width=xx)

You can't assign categories to companies. Just to items. The logic is simple. If a company has items (items is not equivalent to product, but to shops etc) in different categories, what category can be used for company??? That's why, when you select "Companies" in search form at the top, the category list becomes inactive.

You can't rate a company. Company's overall rating is auto calculating from ratings of it's items. I think that this is the right approach to rating.

Can't duplicate this bug. For me works fine.

I forgot to remove the links. I did it for left column which is on all pages, and I forgot the central blocks on the index page.

But in general, I don't believe that some incompatibilities with FF, or a missing file, are droping it's value to rate it as "Terrible":D

Yes, each item must be assign to a company. As for the error, please setup Features or deactivate them from microBUSINESS Options.
