Version 1.4.0 has been released to remove the giftery / list it integration of the addon now that service has been discontinued. No upgrade is needed though there have been a few other bug changes since 1.3.5.

Finding Feedback Can be Like a Needle in a Haystack


The more your forum grows, the more of a challenge it becomes to sort through the history and get the full story.


Product Review Forums Brings Structure to the Chaos


As a full-featured product management addon, PRF sits on top of your forum allowing you to create defined products which, unlike individual posts, stay relevant over time. Each comment, review and even product updates filter back into this one spot allowing for a quick and comprehensive overview while the individual discussions rage on as always.


Here's just a few of the many features you'll find in PRF:
  • Bring structure to products with established pages & reviews
  • Reduce the number of repetitive posts from members looking up the same info
  • Increase your traffic with content-rich, seo friendly, product listings
  • Drive revenue by adding your own affiliate links to product listings
  • Increase the activity stream's value with review integration
  • Engage visitors with integrated wishlists from Giftery.me
===========================

Installation is not upload & go... individualized settings are required. Read the install file.


===========================
QUICK TIPS:
===========================

Enabling Product Forums: To show product details and ratings, each product-forum must be enabled in the forum manager.

Adding Products: You may upload products one at a time through the admin [includes an image uploader using GD] or you can bulk import through XML. You can also enable users to add moderated products through a global and usergroup option.

Product Review Index: To access your forum's product overview go to www.yoursite.com/productforums.php - You may want to add a link to this to your navbar or as a tab.

Customization: This addon is made to be customized. To change the color schema see clientscript/vbulletin_css or dive right on in to the templates and phrases.

Powered by Giftery.me: This mod is maintained includes two integrations you should know about. Both can be controlled through the mod options.

The mod posts reviews to the review forum already. I'll take another look when we test the updates but right now you seem to be the only one experiencing this.

Well since I said it's coming in the next version of the mod I'd suspect not.

The link is on the Review Overview / Search Page. You can add it elsewhere as you see fit.

Furthermore if the image filesize is huge, say a 5000x5000 graphic, the entire thing is still downloaded each time causing your page load to drag.

It's not a terrible solution if your images are already all fairly small and similar sizes but becomes a problem when they're raw which is why the mod doesn't use it. Down the road we'll build a full uploader but as resizing is a quick process, the focus is on new features.

Alright Product Review Forum Users...

Here's the beta [looks like it all works but a little more testing to go] of 1.2.0 for those who want to get moving

- Adds the WYSIWYG editor for writing reviews [awesome]
- Adds search by Manufacturer option
- Adds post bit stat & link to a user's reviews
- Separates options into core / style for future expansion
- Switches sharing to AddThis for increased usage

Lots of small changes too as listed in the change log.

Update the XML, .php files, heck... upload it all again.

Yes, but the problem is happening only in the threads created in the product review forums

The Beta version seems to be working well, and my feature request (Sort by MFG) seems flawless... so I'm happy

I'm wondering where I would go to change the color of the search box from the standard Vbulletin blue?


Thanks



on edit: I think I found a slight bug. The MFG search defaults to the first entry. It should default to "blank" otherwise it affects the other fields.
