Do you have any links to live forums using this mod, please?

Or, is anyone else using it and willing to share a link?

I've been using another review mod for a year now on a test forum. It looks OK, but not as slick as other platforms I've seen that aren't based on vBulletin. Plus, I've had enough issues that I am not willing to risk putting it on my main forum. As it is, I am afraid to update anything on the test forum, for fear of breaking part of the plugin setup and having to spend hours searching for fixes because even the server experts at my hosting provider can't figure it out. Then dreading each contact with their support, who seems to always assume that I am an expert coder and server admin. I realize a review system is a bit more complex than a typical mod or plugin, but I'm hoping to find something more robust, with easier installation/updates and a much better moderator experience in terms of editors, layouts and approvals. Good tech support would be a big bonus, too.

So, any personal experiences with the Dragonbyte-Tech plugin or others would be great!

Obviously, but I am more interested in third parties who have used it so I can get some independent opinions on experience with it. I tried reviewpost based on the developer's website and product information. It didn't quite live up to my expectations for a paid mod, so I'm hoping to find more feedback from more users this time.

Too bad that this project never manifested as intended. Though several admins crowdfunded a reviews solution which was based upon the same requirements. So in a way this project did manifest. Just not for vbulletin. Unfortunately.

I built my review/product directory based on VB4. Combined with the support tools behind the database I am well over 1,000 dev hours into this. The work is not hard, but the project is very large.

My next work item is to remove VB completely, and run my own forum implementation (because the site does not really need a forum).

That certainly looks nice, but how does that help all the members in this thread that are looking for the mod?

Nice to see that they are still able to use GARS.

Nice, but the main problem is the functionality of the rating system and custom fields that prevents most of us to switch to vB4.
