vB Version: 3.8.x Rating: (8 votes - 4.50 average) Installs: 118
Released: 26 Apr 2009 Last Update: 27 Apr 2009 Downloads: 967
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Template Edits Additional Files Translations  

What this hack does:

This hack will add a full featured survey application system to your forum. You can survey your members opinions on various topics, or allow usergroups to create their own surveys.

Credits: John W. Holmes: Author of UCCASS Survey.
tamarian who initially released this hack for vB3.0 - 3.5 before I ported it to 3.6 - 3.8 outstanding work by him.

Application Features: See the UCCASS site for full details.

http://www.bigredspark.com/survey.html

The UCCASS offers some advanced features such as branching conditionals (allows hiding/displaying questions based on specific answers), result filtrations and much more.

Integration features:
Replaced authentication with VB's user database
Set permissions per usergroup, for admin/edit/create/take and view results priviliges.
Replaced config files with vB admin settings
Applied vB style to the UCCASS templates (it uses Smarty)

vB Survey added features: (some will be ported back to UCCASS)
Added anonymity option. If a survey is not anonymous, members can see how other members answered.
Added Hide/unhide survey option. This is useful to send surveys to specific users or usergroups.
Added Date answer types (D), with dropdown lists for day, month, year to ensure correct date entry.
Added REGEX control for new answer types, to control the answer format.
Added size control for single like text answers and REGEX answers.

Liscense: The original UCCASS Survey application is released under a modified GPL Liscense (Aferro GPL) : http://www.bigredspark.com/survey/license.txt (or look under the /docs directory in the zip file)

Installation difficulty:
2 mins, all done via product file.

Installation:

* Unpack the included file
* Copy survey.php to your main forum directory
* Copy the survey directory into your forum directory (cannot change the directory name)
* Install the Product-Survey.xml
* The product file will also install all data for the 2 default surveys to get you started.
* Go to AdminCP => vBulletin Options => Survey System Options - and set the options for access and other settings
* If you get permission errors, change file permissions for the survey directory and its contents to 744, and the owner/group to apache:apache (or, some servers are setup to nobody:nobody):

cd /path/to/main/forum

chown -R apache:apache survey

chmod -R 744 survey

Notes:

1. The "do not remove" comment on the copyright link in the footer is from the original UCCASS footer template. You may contact the original author, John W. Holmes, for permission to remove the copyright notice, he's willing to talk according to their support forum.
2. If you use FTP to upload the survey directory, you might have problems with subdirectories under /survey/smarty/template_c due to the directory names with % signs. In this case, you can delete all the directories under template_c (but not the template_c directory itself). Those subdirectories will be recreated automatically when the templates are read.


Please click Install if you have installed this mod.


1. All tables, templates, phrases etc are installed via product file.
2. Support for wol has been added.
3. Some bugs fixed with the UCCASS system

I would grateful if you did click Install if you use it. Remember you only get notified of updates if you Install

Demo Here :- http://www.beta-tester.co.uk/iphone/survey.php please note the Demo may have restrictions as it is a live board. You may or may not be able to test the survey as a guest, this will not affect your sites as generally why would you want guests taking a survey on your site, you would never get a true survey result, I have only enabled this on my board so as to get the ball rolling and you guys can see it. you should all be able to see results page though.

If you have the older 3.5 Hack installed you MUST uninstall that before installing 3.8

There is no vbsurvey_install.php in the admincp folder. In the readme included, it does not mention this file, but the readme contained in an html document within the uploads says there should be a vbsurvey_install.php file. This file is non-existent. I tried to install it thinking this file was no longer needed, but it doesn't work, so I assume that file is, in fact, needed. My VB Options window does have all the options, and I am able to configure the options, but then what? There's nothing else in admincp, and there is nothing on the forum pages, either. I'm guessing the .zip file is missing something...

For those who search for french default.
If you want to activate the Hidden survey feature, just leave a note.
Try at your own risk, its going well for vb 3.8.3

Installed and working! Only thing is that usergroup settings only work on primary and not secondary usergroups which give some problems where I want user to be able to answer for one usergroup and someone has this usergroup as secondary ...

Survey working fine. Though when I try exporting the result in table or csv, the column headers do get exported but without the values.

Can you tell me why this would happen?

Replace GREATEST with COALESCE in classes/special_results.class (6 replaces)

And it solved the problem.

I managed to create a survey just fine and had people take it. I came back this morning and the entire page is white. Last night the survey was also saying requested questions weren't answered on pages I had already successfully completed (sending me back to those pages from a later page).
similar problem, installed the system but when i go to survey.php i get a white blank screen, did you manage to get yours fixed?

Works perfectly.

Only flaw Ive found is a little problem with the layout in the results page but since for my site only Admins see it then its really no big deal.

Thanks for this great site tool.

Nominated...

Edit. Layout issue is in FF only IE and Google chrome look fine to me.

I am currently translating the tool into german, and I am pretty far.

However something came up: Whatever you do, of you insert an "Umlaut" i.e. the title won't be saved. That is a bug, which needs immediate attention, or else the translation I am doing is senseless.

I installed and have this problem...

1. In case I let survey on CHMOD on 755 I get this:

WARNING: Compiled template directory is not writable (./survey/smarty/templates_c). Please refer to the installation document for instructions.

2. In case I change to CHMOD 744, I get this:

Warning: require(survey/classes/main.class.php) [function.require]: failed to open stream: Permission denied in [path]/survey.php on line 8

Warning: require(survey/classes/main.class.php) [function.require]: failed to open stream: Permission denied in [path]/survey.php on line 8

Fatal error: require() [function.require]: Failed opening required 'survey/classes/main.class.php' (include_path='.:/usr/share/php5:/usr/share/php') in /var/www/www.forum.com/htdocs/forum/survey.php on line 8


3. I must add that I cannot change the name of the user or of the group - I have no idea why, but I don't have access.


Thanks!

Please, can someone help me with this.

Also, there is no .php file in the admin cp directory from the zip and have no idea how to set a new survey.

I find this mod very nice and helpful, it would be sad to have no chance to use it.

Thanks!

Why not set it to 777? I know it leaves it open but shouldn't that clear up this problem.

As for no .php file in the admincp. I had the same thing and installed it anyway. Works perfectly. I think that may be a left over folder from an earlier version.
