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.

Go to your ACP and scroll down to Plugins & Products --> Plugin Manager.

Under the Plugin System, look for "Product : Form Hack" and you should see the name of your plugin in the first column (default = Form Hack). Click on the "Edit" option to the right of the plugin and it will bring you to the Edit plugin page. Search for the codes under "Plugin PHP Code" and you should be able to find it

Is there anyway to have certain fields auto filled? I have restricted the application to registered forum users only. I'd like their e-mail, birthday, and xfire info to auto fill before they start. Is this possible?

I've created a forum for just the applications to go after being completed. I want the title of the thread to be their usernames.

Also, how do I get rid of questions and/or change their formats?

For some reason this will not work for GUESTS in 3.7.2 pl1. It submits the form fine, but the thread doesn't appear in the mod section. It works fine for all other members.

Update:
I had to turn off guest image verification in order for this to work for guests...

Unfortunately all of the spam prevention options/plug-ins for this are gone. If you click the links within the first thread that point to the anti-spam plugins, they have been removed/disabled by the author.

So what are people using for spam protection / image verification / etc for this with 3.7?

Yes Stryker412,,,
But it will require pulling info from your forum database...

I only do simple add-ons with this mod,,, ABE1 can help you better...

I been working on some options with this mod that work,,, but Im still not quite there...
This mod has deleted many brain cells and so I break away and come back when replenished...

Working several jobs,,, two wifes {computer and wife} and two kids {dog and kid}
I need a VACATION...

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

vissa,,,
I was working on another image verification,,, but very little support using them so I put it on hold...

I can worry about the auto filling fields later, but what's the best way to delete some of the existing questions?

I have an issue, its probably something stupif, or im probably forgetting something, so i hope you can help, it is a very small problem but if i need to do something more important in the future then it will mess everything up.

I have made a Form for reporting issues with the wesbite, this is what the code says FOR THIS SPACIFIC PART when you click Plugins and Products --> Plugin Manager --> Site Issues Form Hack


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

If you then go to Styles and Templates --> Current Theme --> Edit Template --> SiteForm...
You get this:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Then if you do the same thing but not go to SiteFormAnswers instead of Site Form... You get this:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.


When you go onto the form, it shows up fine and everything works, when it is submited it goes into the correct Forum Area, below is a picture showing the form before being submited:




Below is a picture showing the form after it has been submited:




As you can see there is a problem were it shows the "Importance" which i think i have spelt wrong lol, but as you can see nothing is written next to it, even though i do go into the frop down menu and select an option.

Please be aware that i was not the one that set up the hack or created the forms, i just added the "Importance" drop down menu, but as you can see, my noobness makes me fail.

I think i found everything that would need editing so if someone could please point me in the right direction as to were i am going wrong and how to resolve it, i would be so greatful.

Thanks in advance,

- David

How to cache form template

Big fan of this mod for a while now Abe1, thanks.

One thing I recently noticed however is that the form template isn't cached when viewing newthread.php?do=form. As we all know, this causes an unnecessary query on the server.

This can be fixed by adding the following plugin to the product at hook location: cache_templates
