* INSTALLATION *
-------------------
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/)

2) Depending on your server configuration, you will need to change the permissions of the advappfiles folder to either 775 or 777

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

4) Take some time to set the options, application types and application postions in the new Application Forms area of AdminCP.
(It's really not that hard!)

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

* 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/)

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

3) vB 4.2.x ONLY - Go to ACP->Settings->Options->Application Form Settings and set 'vB 4.2 Community Menu Update' to 'Yes'.

UPGRADING TO VERSION 1.3.8 or HiGHER
Depending on your server configuration, you will need to change the permissions of the advappfiles folder to either 775 or 777

If you have edited the advapp_application template, you need to revert the template before upgrading to 1.3.8 or higher.
Once the upgrade is complete, you can re-apply your changes to that template.

so {1}'s application for {q_3}
The quick fix for this is to change the question you want to be part of the subject to be the first question asked.

Edit the application postition.

This is from the Position Edit screen...

Poster ID
Enter the user ID for the member that will be used to post the application reports.

NOTE: If set to zero, the applicant user id will be used. And if the forum to post in is a private forum, the posts will be moderated when this is set to zero.
You can let the system use the user name of the person filling out the application. Or, create a new user (such as 'Application System') and use that userid.

1) In ACP->Settings->Options->Application Form Settings be sure you have at least one usergoup forbidden from using the system. This is usually the banned usergroup.

2) In ACP->Application Forms->Application Types make sure your usergroup is allowed to view the application type.

3) In ACP->Application Forms->Application Types make sure YOU have enough posts to view the application type.

4) In ACP->Application Forms->Application Positions make sure your usergroup is allowed to view the position.

Hey nhawk.

I installed your mod. I am capable of editing the ACP --> Settings --> Options --> Application Form Settings. But I can't find it anywhere on the site or ACP to add / edit the applications.

Any Idea where to find it?

Hello, I installed it on 4.2.0 P1 - working like sharm. Thanks.
Question: For example one of my users - filled in application.
If its not sent to email, is it saved somewhere in system, where can I retrieve it?

For example, if within one day - 10 users apply to one application form.
How can I found out - where is their applications, and how can I see this application records.

Thanks.

Applications can be posted, and/or sent via PM and/or sent via Email. They aren't stored anywhere.

In the Application Postition settings....

If you want applications to go into a forum, be sure to set 'Report in New Thread' to 'Yes' and select the forum to create the thread in. Also, be sure to set the poster ID.

If you want applications to be sent via PM, be sure to set 'Report By Private Message' to 'Yes' and set the sender ID for the PM and who should receive the PM.

If you want applications to be sent by Email, be sure to set the email addresses of those that should receive the email.
