Discuss!!
A Yahoo Answers Clone


Compatible with 4.2.0
but you must download the file Disucss_1_4_0.zip


1. Why we need a discussion mod

Maybe sounds crazy to have a powerfull forum and to install this AddOn. But this is not true. I do agree that vB has tons of features for any type of discussions. But from the other point Yahoo Answers (and dozens of similars sites) became famous, because they offer a simple way to users to get replies. Short questions, with a couple of replies. Why to go in a complicated system for this? And why to add dozens of extra categories, subcategories etc etc, just for this? This is the reason that you need it.

2.- How it works?

Very simple, so easy to use by novice users too. A member is posting a question in any of your categories (unlimited level are supporting) and then is waiting other members to post a reply. Reads the replies, chooses the best and that's all. There is no need for discussion here.





3.- Installation
  1. Download, unzip and upload all files from the "upload" folder where your vb installation is (you can't install in different directory).
  2. Goto you admincp and import the product-discuss.xml
  3. That's all
4.- Configuration





Configuration is very easy and is like all other addons here. You need to follow the steps below, and soon you'll be ready:
  1. First of all goto Usergroup permissions and set what each usergroup can do or not do.
  2. Goto Discuss General setting, check the default values and change them if you want
  3. PM Templates. I believe that the predefinied text is ok for most of you. But if you want you can change them. Please don't touce the variables (anything inside {}). The available variables are:
    1. {questiontitle} : Title with link
    2. {questiontitle_nolink} : As above but without link
    3. {category} : Category name with link
    4. {category_nolink} : Category without link
    5. {questionowner} : The author's username with link
    6. {questionowner_nolink} : As above, no link
    7. {description} : 200 chars from the question body
    8. {username} : This is the "To:" value. eg Dear {username},
    9. {postdate_short} : Post date in format that you've set as long dates
    10. {postdate_long} : Same as above in long date format
    11. {signature} : Anything that you've set in your settings
  4. Last step is to set your categories.
5.- Copyright

In the footer of each page there is a link back to my site vBulletON.com. Even if it easy to remove it, please avoid doing it. Respect if you want to be respected. That's the only that I can say.

6.- PRO version

Currently there is no one. I don't use to build an addon, and then remove 90% of its features to make a free version. No. This is all that I've done. Sure there are dozens of more features that I can add. If I see that this mod becomes popular then I'll add them but as commercial version.

7.- Live Demo

Ok, and resolved tab
I seen your question, I forgot to use "implode", but let it better for tomorrow morning to give you the full example. Today was not my lucky day, so is better to go to sleep. Maybe in my dreams I'll see a world full of love, respection among people, and of course without wars and financial crisis.

It was developed in 4.1.12 so works fine with this version. If you click on the demo link you'll see that my site is running 4.1.12 and the mod works.

testing this Chris... looking pretty good, In order of priority.. some issues

1. The ability to edit/delete answers - by the person answering and also mod/admin
2. You can enter no text into the editor and submit it and it will reply
3. On the view question page, editor functions such as smilies, insert link, insert image dont work
4. A 'resolved' tab on the main page to show latest resolved questions would be good.
5. A recipient user for the auto pm's as members will no doubt try and reply to the auto pm's

I'll check the bug reports (I've already fixed one with wrong link in subcategories) and I'll release an update later today. As for the suggestions, please notice what I've wrote in my main post (PRO version): "...then I'll add them but as commercial version.". Actually I've already added some more features eg the tab that you're talking about, a seperate tab in user profile, and details in postbit template. But this version will not release here.

Hello Saudi Arabia For one year I was next to you at Kuwait.
As for your issue now. As I seen it's a broken link. Are you sure that the avatar.png exists in the folder discuss/images/ ??

Can you please be kind and let this thread alone? As I said you don't have my permission to use any of my mods (not only this) in Indiagarage.com. So, there is no reason to post anything.

Thank you for your understanding
Chris

Chris,

As you told me to remove your mods, I have did that, so there was no need for you to abuse anyone of this site. I am not interested in using your modification on my site. If you think are good a developer so its good for you. Even I said I am ready to pay for your modification if there is any pro version available for the same. But you just know to abuse members on this forums, for copyright voilation.

Regards
