-------------------
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

I'm having issues when I'm trying to allow users to post applications.

I have it set that all usergroups can make an application, but it continues to say (on a test account and on my own account) that we're not currently accepting applications. All the settings are set to allow applications.

Help please!

Thanks.

PS: Now there are suddenly no application types showing in the list anymore. It's very confusing.

You've probably already done this but anyway....

Double check these settings....

Application Form Settings/Accept Applications - YES
Application Types/Edit/This Application Type is Active - YES
Application Positions/Edit/This Position is Active - YES

Also in these sections...

Application Types/Edit/Allowed Usergroups
Application Positions/Edit/Allowed Usergroups

...make sure you have selected the usergroups to allow.


If it's none of those (and now your app types has vanished) it might be worth trying to re-upload/re-install.

There isn't a dropdown list available at this time.

Your only option for a single selection would be radio buttons (Single Selection).

If the phone # field is used the mod will check to make sure the number is in the correct format, ie. 555-555-5555

Possibly tomorrow, but not today.

There is no detection of what type of information is being requested from a member. So, there is no way to validate a date or phone number response.

Also, I just ran across something similar to what you want for phone numbers in a major paid project. That phone number format you want to use is only valid in some places. The entire world doesn't operate on US phone number formats. (ie: ###-###-########## is a valid format)

As I said, there is no detection of why type of information is being requested from a member.

So if you ask for a phone number and make it a single line text box, there is no way of looking for the hyphen in the response.

I wanted to have a few more things done, but it didn't work out that way.
