Week / Month Topic Nominations

Acknowledgments:
This release would not have been possible without the existence of the former “Topic Nominations” by J98680B2423E (Data) and "Post Thank You" by Abe1, which provided the mod’s core structure. A nice set of button and awards images have also been provided by princeedward. You can view screenshots at the original mod's thread: VB 3.7 Topic Nominations

What is Topic Of The Week/Fortnight/Month?
It adds a "Topic Of The Week/Month" nomination system for your community.
Topic of the Week/Month is a contest that select posts on which your community can nominate as the best and then discuss them during the course of the selected week/fortnight /month. Any listed topic (post, thread) is eligible for the Topic of the Week/Fortnight /Month selection. This mod should also work in VB 3.7.x, but it has only been tested in VB 3.8.

Features of New 2.0 Version:
  • 50+ bugs fixed & 30+ phrases changed for clarification.
  • Fixed ajax functionality for adding & removing nominations.
  • 16 settings to determine which users can nominate and which posts can be nominated.
  • Documented this mod’s limitations & changelog in the 2nd post.
  • Fixed Hall of Fame to to correctly display most awarded members and topic winners from the past 3 contests (3 awards per contest).
  • Added new setting, max # of nominations user can receive, to prevent a poll being dominated by a single user.
  • Added new function to recount # of current nominations received and past awards.
  • Added new function to manually finalize the current contest, close the old poll thread, and create a new poll thread.
  • An option to enable blog nominations is available and should work (coded by Data), but is not supported (I do not have VB Blog).
  • You must have 3 VB default hooks in the postbit template: see troubleshooting below for details. If you ask for help with a problem, you must state in your post if you have reverted ALL nomination templates and read the troubleshooting tips in the 2nd post. If you haven’t, do so otherwise you will be ignored & can debug it yourself.
Installation instructions:
  1. Upload the content of the "upload" folder into your forum root directory
  2. Import the "product_nominate_topic.xml" product via your ACP:
    ACP -> Plugins & Products -> Manage Product -> Add/Import Product (Allow overwrite for updating)
  3. For upgrades only, REVERT ALL nominate_topic templates in ACP -> “Find Updated Templates” or top FYI section of Control Panel. This mod will work only if ALL templates are reverted since major changes were done to them. Reapply custom phrasing to changed phrases as needed.
  4. Adjust & save the mod settings to your preference in ACP -> VB Options. It is strongly recommended that you use the default, preset options.
    Specify the Forum ID that will receive nomination threads and the Forum ID's for which posts can be nominated. Also specify the User ID of the nomination thread owner.
  5. For new installs only, start a new nomination poll at:
    ACP side menu -> Nominate Topic -> Special Actions -> Create New Poll Thread
  6. Read the 2nd post for Troubleshooting Tips & Mod Limitations and the 3rd post for specific features of this mod.
Version History:
2.0.0: Initial Release.
2.0.2: Fixed table column bug.

Just checking !

Users who marked "installed" have priority in getting the questions/ problems answered. I'll answer other questions as time permits.

If you're wondering about postbit_legacy support, read this post.. It has already been confirmed to work with postbit_legacy by several users.

As before, please upload image to VB.org; I don't like visiting unknown sites on my development computer.

No, you probably should remove the image because I think VB moderators don't like big images dominating the thread. You need to CLICK ON "Go Advanced" button and then "Manage Attachments".

To answer you Q, you can either test out another $template_hook or move the postbit_userinfo_right hook to where you want. Look at the postbit template (or postbit_legacy) for possible hooks (ACP -> Style Manager -> Edit Templates).

Just wondering, if you have joint nominations, do both nominations recieve the award, Also when someone nominates a thread should the poll be open for everyone to vote in, or are they supposed to nominate the thread also?

If you're talking about nominations ties, this mod accounts for that up to 3 winners. If you want to limit users/ usergroups able to receive nominations and users/ usergroups able to give nominations, there are settings for that in VB Options > Topic Nominations.
