Form Hack 4.1


Features:

Ever wanted an online form that a user can fill out, which when submitted gets:
  • Posted into a new thread in a forum of your choice
  • Create a new poll in the new thread with options of your choice
  • Posted as a reply in an existing thread of your choice
  • PMed to you or someone else
  • Emailed to an email address you specify
  • Choose to redirect to the post, thread or forum, or a custom thank you message
  • Choose to redirect to edit post
  • See a preview before they submit

Or any combination or all of the above?

Well, this is the hack for you!

You can use this for:
  • Moderator Applications
  • Quiz Submit Form which gets PMed to a moderator
  • Contact Form that goes to PM, email or thread
  • Guests to apply to be members
  • Report a Moderator form that goes as a PM to you
  • Guests can PM you for whatever reason
  • Order form to buy things
  • Donation form
  • News or Articles submissions that can go straight to a thread

Or anything you like - this hack is totally customizable via the AdminCP.

The beauty of this hack is that once you install this hack, to make a new form all you need to do is copy the main hook, rename it to whatever you want, edit the variables in the hook, and you have a totally new form!!! You do not need to touch the templates again, but can always create new ones and use different templates for different forms.

Format of the form:
  • One main input question
  • 3 Radio buttons Choice questions
  • 3 Normal text input questions
  • 1 Drop down menu
  • 3 Check boxes
  • 1 Long answer question
  • 1 VB message editor text box question
  • Upload attachments

This is customizable via the hook.

Also:
  • You can set the usergroups you want access to this form.
  • Depending on your forum permissions, if the new thread is in a public forum, members can reply to it. This hack allows a form to submit the new thread or post wherever you want it to go.
  • Force the user to answer all questions.

INSTALLATION
Easy - takes only a few minutes:
  • Import the XML into products. (admin cp -> Plug-in System -> Manage Products -> Add/Import Product)
  • Edit the main plug-in - the instructions are all inside the hook itself, in the top half. Follow the instructions carefully!
  • To get to the form, go to: /newthread.php?do=form (change "form" to the name of your form if you have few)

Done!

Use this hack to make as many forms as you like!

Enjoy!

Updates:

Version 4.0: (09/15/2006)
  • Ported over for vb3.6
  • Send to multiple emails.
  • Send multiple PMs.
  • Parse emails for BBCode
  • And finally, ATTACHMENTS!

Version 4.1: (04/24/2008)
  • Fixed for vb 3.6.10
  • Small bug fixed.
  • List of the 2 quick edits are in the zip file so you don't have to start making a form from scratch.

MAKE SURE YOU CLICK INSTALL!
You will get an email when a new version is released.

Basically, I have the user group set-up as such:

Primary User Group: Active Users
Secondary User Group: Private Testers

I have set this specific form to be accessable by Admins, Staff members, and Private Testers.

private testers are the only ones of those 3 groups to access the form as a secondary user group...

I hope what i typed just made sense.

Does this make sense to anyone as being the issue?

I did test this with a test account by changing the user group that I'm trying to test to be primary instead of secondary so I'm able to confirm that this is the issue (bug?)
RedGTiVR6 Im not sure if this Mod is causing yo issue or if its a vBull issue concerning the usergroup mgr...

Double check yo usergroup ids and verify in forms that everything is matching up, otherwise setup a TEST BOARD and try it over there and C what's up...

Without files to use in testing, I cant really tell U, what it B or where B yo issue...


Good Luck

I've double checked the user groups....heck, I've sextuple checked them...lol

I'll see about setting up a dummy board. It's something that needs to be done anyways. Unfortunately I don't have control over it, I just handle the admin side of the forum...

Its probably something that you missed in plugin code...
I've attached the two templates (questions and answers) and the plug-in code.

The user group that needs to be able to access the form is group #29.

For many of them I've set them as having Group #29 as a primary user group for now to be able to access the form.

This is causing a problem for a user that's also a moderator. They either cannot see the form to fill it out or they can see it and they cannot see the moderation pannel.

Let me know if I'm missing something that you might need to help trouble shoot.

Thanks for the help!

Ok RedGTiVR6, I've been busy and forgot about coming back...

O-Taa I will check yo files and hopefully find the issue...

*************************************************

RedGTiVR6 I checked all files and everything seems OK...

****************************************************
Yes your right, its not working 4 the other usergroup...

you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:

Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.


****************************************************

I believe U will possibly require a code change 2 correct your issue...

Final conclusion is that U will need 2 ask the Author of this hack 4 help on this one...

I hope U get it resolved

I attached the version that I have. The instructions should be in there.

Deepdog009 - thanks for looking at the files. I've got a work around and I've reported it as a bug to the vBulletin team...which I think it is.

The reason I say that:

if I put a user as a super mod as a secondary user group, they do not have moderator privelages.

so this isn't just an issue with this mod, it's a vbulletin issue.
