* 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.

No code should need to be changed for any phrase.

To change 'Application Forms' to 'Submit for VOTM', go to ACP->Languages & Phrases->Search in Phrases. Enter advapp_title in search for text. For 'Search in', tick the 'Phrase Variable Name Only' selection and then click 'Find'

All of the other phrases are editable, just use the same search as above. But only put 'advapp' in the 'Search In' box. That will bring up all phrases for the AAF system.

An application form is nothing but a list of questions. So, yes it could be used as a questionaire if you wish to call it that.

Ok. Thanks. I just installed it last night so I haven't had time to really investigate it. I'll look check it out tonight. I was trying to figure out how to get around asking for what position the user is applying for.

All of the phrases are editable. So you can change that phrase to whatever you like.

Hello,
I am using your mod for a while now and I am missing a feature i guess not every person would want,
I tried to do this on my own with no luck:
I want the application to be redirected to a page i created with the CMS
That page is like a "thank you for filling up the information and whats next" information page
Could you assist me with that?

In admin go to Application Forms/Application Positions... click Edit and at the very bottom of the settings you'll see Return Member To select Link Defined Below then enter the link to your page in the Return Link box.

Not at this time.

The only replacement variables for the message subject are:
{1} - Member Name
{2} - First Single Line Text Answer

Something like that would require input on what you wanted to be included. I would have to define that in the code.

And remember, if you include more in the subject you could end up with a huge subject line which wouldn't be good either.

I was able to upload the files & install the xml... Everything works great, except the applications do not show up underneath the "Application Forms" on our website... I included a link to a screenshot.
http://i47.tinypic.com/s1ryc3.png

As you can see, the staff & membership applications that we had set up do NOT show up in the menu under "Application Forms"
And yes, I DID make sure that the option for showing the applications on the NavBar was "Yes".

Help is appreciated
