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.

I posted a message directly below the one with code in it stating that the problem had been fixed. I've also updated the code so yes, everything should work fine now. It wasn't very clear though, sorry.

Well, rayw... I've a slight change to do.
In fact, I have a lot of forums and su-forums. All these may change time to time, so I would need this tweak to be easy to manage.

My idea would be to use the forumjump template to improve that product.

Something like this, where when clicked on, would post the thread in :


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

Would it be possible to have this?

Using the forum jump menu isn't a bad idea. Never thought of that.

I don't see why it wouldn't work and all the code looks ok (but I'm no programmer either - still learning as said above).

All you can do is give it a go and see what happens.

You seem to know more about this stuff then me anyway!

Hey rayw,

I don't think I know more than you: I just copied the forumjump code. But I don't think, this could work as these link are not designed to save posts but just to jump to...

Maybe some coder around here may help us...

Does anyone know how to fix this error. I have tried almost everything... I guess there is something that I have not tried yet.
Double check your form names, that message says something is wrong with your form name or something in your plugin code is not matching forms.

Maybe the link has one letter wrong.

Good Luck

Icemanic its possible that you forgot something in one of your forms or your plugin code isn't matching.

Check form names
Check form answer area
Check main form and verify that its got the correct html that will show all boxes or message areas.

Next check your forms templates 2 verify that all is matching and is placed correctly.

Good Luck!

Error: Invalid Forum specified. My url is correct for sure.

When I install the custom form it takes down the unmodified original form, displaying the same error. The theme was also edited, but since the custom plugin made both forms crash it is the root of the problem, no? I can produce the template code if needed.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, especially after 3 nights of failure.

I added a if statement.
It will either show the bbuser[email] or a text input for them to add a email address.

this works great, shows in the post, and in the PM. Also the email you set in the hook sends like it should.
But I also want to send an email to the user that same form.
Any idea how?
