DragonByte Reviews is an advanced review system that allows you to get your users interacting with your forums on a new level

Uses

With a wide range of permissions, you can allow your users to create/rate reviews, and customize it to your liking. You can also setup separate instances of the review system with different rating questions, custom fields and a review front page look.

You can even tie the review system into any product system with a little custom work.

Translations available @ our forum
Support for translations handled by the translator in its respective threads only.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Major Features

Multiple Instances: You can run an unlimited number instances of the review system on the same forum with same set of files! Each instance can have a different look and feel to it with the help of the customizable display blocks, custom fields and custom rating questions.

AJAX integration: We used AJAX wherever we could to help reduce the page reloads, including adding/viewing comments and rating reviews

Images in WYSIWYG editor: We added the vB WYSIWYG editor with the ability to add inline images into the review text so that you can create reviews that pop.

Front End and ACP Approval: Review approval and editing can be done quickly through either the front end by moderators or in the ACP by adminstrators.

Is it possible to integrate the Review System into the vBulletin Activity Stream - or alternatively into DBTech Live Stream?

Thanks
Werner

There is an optional integration script for our LiveWall modification in the "do not upload" folder, though I'm not entirely sure if that's Pro-only or not as I was not the original developer.

Fantastic Mod' I have it running on localhost where I am testing the functionality before installing on my forum, some thing I was wondering,

Is there a way to have a filter results letter list for easier searching of Reviews, like the letters (# through to Z) bar seen in the Memberlist here: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/memberlist.php

Nominated for MOTM.


*edit*

Sorry to be a nuisance chap, I have noticed whilst testing this out on local host that comments on reviews are being ordered oddly, the newest comment is listed first, is there a way of changing this so the newest comment is last, many thanks for this excellent Mod' and your much appreciated support.

Hi, i have some questions:

1. I noticed, that the ratingpoints of the original creator are lost, when someone different edits the review.

2. Is it possible to enable the upload from computer option in the comment-editor. So far only upload from URL are available.

3. Are there any options to enable editing of comments? At the moment my users have to delete their posts and recreate it, but that leads to multiple notfications in the shoutbox.

4. Would it be possible to remove the review image button from the comments editor. i don't see any use in it.

Thanks for any hints and help.

That would be really helpful if the ability to edit comments was added.

Maybe I'm an idiot but where do I set the permissions to allow user to make reviews? In usergroup permissions for example all it asks: is Admin?. Below is a screen shot from my Registered Member Group.

Follow this navigation path:

AdminCP
- DBTech - Review
- - Instance Management
- - - Edit

You set permissions there, hope this helps.

Questions:
1. I have CHRIS reviews with some translations... what do I lost if I change?
2. CHRIS system has one big problem: an admin can't edit other reviews (sometimes, they need videos or images, for example)... does this mod allow it?
3. What's the difference between CHRIS mod and your LITE mod? And what about the PRO version?
4. Can I change or add "rating questions" if I change to your mod?

Thanks

I don't believe this mod has an importer from that mod, but as I'm not the original developer I could be wrong.

Yeah

I'm not familiar with the Chris mod so it's hard for me to answer that question, you can compare the feature lists and I'm sure you'll find our mod has the superior feature set

I just wanted to run a test on this since it has all the permissions that Chris version lacks.

After I did an import I found that none of the extra fields had a box to enter text, only the labels are visible. Also I cannot find anyway to actually rate a product, all the stars are greyed out!
Is there any documentation on making a new review, I don't see an option to do that.

I also have some questions about the product.

1) Can you do multiple ratings on the product with labels for each?

example
Construction Quality: XXX
Fun to Operate: XXXXX
Value For Money: XX

2) Can it do more than 5 stars, like 10 stars or Bars

3) Can the Parent item for review be listed down the left side like Chris version and then when you click on the parent it opens up child items? Or is it limited to a drop down box only?


Thanks
Rob

If someone has set this mod up but now wants to remove it is it possible to export those reviews to forums?

I know this seems unlikely but I have a client who wants to do this and I am not familiar enough with the mod to give a definitive answer without asking.
