THIS ADD-ON IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE AND IS NOT SUPPORTED

NOTE: This add-on is designed for use with vBulletin 3.8.6 or higher. It may not work with earlier versions of vBulletin.

Raffles, giveaways, and contests, whatever you wish to call them, are a great way to increase traffic on any forum.

This is a port of my Raffle add-on for vBulletin 4.1.x to vBulletin 3.8.x. For the 4.1.x version see this thread.. http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=262901

Features:
  • Define a different prize image for each raffle.
  • Set raffle rules on a per raffle basis.
  • Set raffles to start in the future or on the day you create the raffle.
  • Allow One or more entries per user.
  • Allow multiple entries at one time if desired.
  • Admin settable time delay between user entries.
  • One or more prizes per raffle.
  • One or more winners per raffle (multiple winners require multiple prizes).
  • Allow members to win multiple times in one raffle if desired.
  • Display winning 'ticket' numbers if desired.
  • Selectable usergroups
  • Post count limit if desired.
  • Require Human Verification if desired.
  • Will show in Community Menu if desired.
  • Show active raffles what's going on.
  • Automatic raffle draw via vBulletin scheduled tasks.
  • Manual raffle draw to override end date and/or scheduled draws.
  • Turn raffles on or off via admincp. (Only raffle admins can view raffles when they are turned off)
  • Support for just about any credit system such as vBCredits II, ICash, kBank and vbBux.
  • Support for AW Coding's Credit Purchase System so member can purchase "raffle tickets".
  • XHTML 1.0 Transitional validated (provided your current template passes the tests)

NOTE: Except for bug fixes, this mod is no longer being updated. I strongly suggest upgrading to vB 4.

* DISCLAIMER *
----------------
Laws about how raffles should be handled vary from location to location. Be sure to check with local authorities and to comply with any laws that may apply to you. The author of this add-on can not be held responsible if the use of this add-on results in any violation of local laws.
By downloading this add-on, you agree to abide by local laws and to hold the author of this add-on harmless for any damages that may occurr from the use of this add-on.

* INSTALLATION *
------------------
1) If you intend to use AW Coding's Credit Purchase System with the Raffle System, install the Credit Purchase System FIRST.

2) Upload the contents of the 'upload' folder to your forum's root.
(If your forum's location is http://www.example.com/forums/, the root is /forums/)
(If your forum's admincp is named something other than admincp, upload raffleadmin.php to your renamed admincp folder.)

3) Import the product XML file (product-raffles.xml) into the Product Manager in AdminCP.

4) If you want to view raffles on your site while the raffle system is turned off, go to AdminCP -> Usergroups -> Administrator Permissions select yourself and set "Can Admin Raffles" to 'Yes'.

5) Anyone you want to be able to administer raffles on your site must also have Administrator Permissions and have "Can Admin Raffles" set to 'Yes' or they will not be able to administer raffles.

6) Take some time to set the options in Raffle Settings.

7) Set up a raffle.

8) Make sure this add-on is marked as 'Installed' on vBulletin.org!
(If you want to get notices from me about updates for this add-on.)

* UPGRADE INSTRUCTIONS *
-----------------------------
1) Upload the contents of the 'upload' folder to your forum's root.
(If your forum's location is http://www.example.com/forums/, the root is /forums/)
(If your forum's admincp is named something other than admincp, upload raffleadmin.php to your renamed admincp folder.)

2) Import the product XML file (product-raffles.xml) into the Product Manager in AdminCP and be sure 'Allow Overwrite' is set to 'Yes'.

* USING RAFFLES *
-------------------
The whole system is pretty self explanatory, but there are a few things to keep in mind...

1) A default raffle image is supplied with the add-on. You must always supply an image for your raffles. You may change the default image if you like.

2) The entry period for raffles always end at 12:00am (midnight) on the day the raffle is to be drawn. (ie: Draw date is set 12/21/2011.. members can enter through 12/20/2011, the moment the date changes to 12/21/2011 no more entries are possible)

3) The scheduled task to draw the raffles is set to take place at 10:00am the day the raffle is to be drawn. You may change this by going to AdminCP->Scheduled Tasks->Scheduled Task Manager, find "Draw raffles", click on Edit and change the time of the draw to what you want it to be.

4) There are replacement variables used in several phrases. These are what the variables are:

raffle_agree: {1} = Forum name
raffle_eligible: {1} = Forum name {2} = Raffle name
raffle_message_body: {1} = Raffle name {2} = Draw date
raffle_message_close: {1} = Raffle admin name {2} = Phrase (raffle_admin_title)
raffle_message_salute: {1} = Winner name
raffle_recent: {1} = Time remaining before a user can enter again
raffle_winner_multi: {1} = Winner names for multiple raffle winners {2} = Raffle name
raffle_winner_one: {1} = Winner name for single raffle winner {2} = Raffle name'

More replacement variables are in the read.me included with this add-on.

5) When adding a custom user profile field for this add-on, be sure to 'Private Field' is set to 'Yes' and 'Field Searchable on Member List' is set to 'No'.

6) If you don't want to have Raffles in the community menu, you can use a forum link to raffles.php.

You need to upload the 'CONTENTS' of the upload folder to your server. Not the actual upload folder.

Then try installing.

Then one or more of the files is not where it belongs.

Did you rename your admincp folder to something other than admincp? If so, the contents of the admincp folder for raffles need to go into the renamed admincp.

That is where all of the files should be.

But when you get the error you're receiving, that means one or more files are not where they belong.

There's nothing more to it. I wish I could help, but to my knowledge that error is not something that has gone wrong.. ever.

You're getting the database error because the install stops when it doesn't find all of the files and the database doesn't get created/updated.

Most likely, one or more of the other files (not raffles.php) isn't in the location it belongs in.

I don't do Facebook.

Send me a PM with your FTP info and a temporary admin username and password to your site. Make sure the temporary admin has the permissions to install add-ons.

The color of the page is tied directly to the style you're using for your site.

To change anything you would need to edit the raffle templates in vBulletin.

It's illegal. We scraped the mod.
