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.

As noted in the script I posted is a version of admincp/productforums.php

You've uploaded the admin script to your forum folder... thus the error.

As noted in the documents, this is not upload and go, you must configure certain options to use all the features of this mod.

Please review the install guide and your product forum settings in your Admin Control Panel -- in this case the new product forum is what's missing but there are likely others you will need to adjust.

p.s. Thank you!

That depends. What's the problem?

From your last post you had uploaded files to the wrong folder and from your previous one it's not clear if you have a setting issue, a software issue or a script issue. You'll need to run the debugger script provided for us to sort that out.

Great... well then let's dig deeper...

That error comes up when Members Can Post Products and New Product Forum ID are not set. What values do you have for each [should be Yes and a Forum ID].

OK I got it. The value for the forum ID was set in the CP, but didn't translate to the backend. Adjusted it manually and it is working.

Great! Anything we should look at in the mod / docs to help with this for others?

Everything else working ok?

Nice find... Looks like we had a double call to the field, one on the wrong table.

This version of /forums/productforums.php fixes it...

You're on top of it!

No more error, just redirects to a new screen and the rating doesn't change. Here is a screenshot
