Mod Version: 1.0.0, by MaryTheG(r)eek (Member) MaryTheG(r)eek is offline
Developer Last Online: Mar 2012 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

This thread is in the Modification Graveyard.
vB Version: 3.8.2 Rating: (0 vote - 0 average) Installs: 22
Released: 06 May 2009 Last Update: Never Downloads: 85
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Auto-Template Additional Files Translations Is in Beta Stage  

Removed by the Author because:
  • For 7 mods, there are 1905 downloads but only 577 clicked installed.
  • For these 577 installs I got 4 donations for Brand Free. Make a simple search on the net using the product name and you'll find that 50% have illegally removed my copyright.
  • I found 3 vb.org style sites, offering for download my mods but after PAID SUBSCRIPTION, or DONATION
After all, I'll stop be the idiot on this market.

microREQUESTS
ver 1.0.0
by MicroHellas
http://www.microhellas.com

Compatible with versions: 3.6.x - 3.7.x - 3.8.x


1.- Usage

You can use it when you want to get any type of your members' feedback. Suggestions, Requests for new features, Opinions and anything similar. The main advantage is that is not using forum style for endless discussions, but rather it let someone to post eg a suggestion and other members can vote positive or negative to this suggestion. Something like that Amazon.com is using.

2.- Installation


The installation is pretty easy, has been checked many times for installing and uninstalling the product. Just follow these steps below:
  • Download and unzip the file microRequsets.zip
  • Open the folder vbulletin and select all files and subfolders inside it
  • Connect to your website and open the directory where is your vBulletin installation (usally forum, forums, portal etc).
  • Upload the selected files to your site. If you fellow the right way then the file requests.php must be on the same level as the index.php file of vBulletin.
  • Before any new installation is good to backup your database before, even if nobody is doing it (including me). At lease turn your site off
  • Check at your AdminCP->vBulletin Options->Plugin/Hook System that Plugin system is enabled.
  • From your AdminCP->Plugin System->Manage Products choose Add/Import Product and import the product: product-microrequests.xml
3.- Configuration


As every vBulletin product, you need to make some initial configuration before it goes live.
  • MicroREQUESTS Options
  • Setup the categories. Category is for general use, you can use products, services, sections of your site or anything else you prefer.
  • Setup request statuses. Actually this is only for those operating a non-English site, to translate the statuses. Otherwise you can't add/delete statuses.
  • Setup usergroup permissions.
  • There is an option to show a special HTML block on index page and in the main page for each category. To do this, you must prepare a normal HTML or PHP file and upload it at microrequests/introfiles/ . Then you can assign the file to the corresponding category from your admincp. Only for the index page, you need to manually enter the filename (including the extention) from microREQUESTS options.
4.- Template Modification

The module is using it's own templates, so it doesn't needs any template modification except if you want to add a link to the navbar. In this case you need to modify the NavBar template.

Open it and find:

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

Add below:

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



5.- Copyright
  • You can modify the code as you like to meet your special needs
  • You can distribute this module AS IS, but NOT FOR PROFIT
  • My copyright link must remain always visible.
  • Even if there is an option to automatically turn off my copyright link, you can't do that unless you're member of my club.

6.- Others
  • There is no commercial version, but in the upcoming days should be a special version just for my club's members.
  • Support and Upgrades only in my site.
  • Thank you, but I'm not accepting donations.
Hope that you'll like it. I'll be back soon with microSUPPORT a Ticketing and FAQ module.


Till then enjoy your life
Maria

What's the interest rate without testing? It's a bad guy?

Thanks, Maria I will test it

one idea, because you've posted it in the 3.8 area
you could use the templatehooks in navbar, so the users using this wouldn't need to edit the template

and great idea

Is that working on 3.6, 3.7 ?? As I know, no. I'm giving more attention to compatibility with earlier version. And finally I don't think that it's so big work to add it in navbar.

Anyway, thank you for your advice. Really appreciated.

Mary

Have you tested with 3.7.x?... If it works at least with 3.7.x then most probably I'll add it.

Suggestion : include a comments system for each request

It's a good hack

Yes, of course, but no threads are created automatically for a request. And then if a member adds a negative vote (or positive vote), he can't justify its choice directly in the resquests system.

FYI... In Usergroup Permissions area, the first question is..

"Can use vbRequests?"

Two quick comments while I am going through the installation process...

One - I would prefer to see support within this forum (as opposed only on your site as mentioned in the description.)
Two - Would be nice to have installation instructions within the distributed ZIP file as well.

Will come back and Mark as Installed and rate it when I have completed the process.

OK.. one more...

Products should be a required selection when submitting a request.

radmoose,
Support and Upgrades only in my site
does not make sense to write in this topic.

===
I do not want to register at another site, why put a hack here? I do not understand this
