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

If you have edited the advapp_application template, you need to revert the template before upgrading to 1.3.8 or higher.

I also found few bugs.

1) When I get a report by email the first question is moved to the right
Yes, this is a bug. I'll do an update soon.

Not a bug, you can only have one file upload per form.

Also not a bug, you can't upload duplicate file names. This prevents one person from overwriting another person's file.

I realize number 3) is not a bug. I wanted to use the mod as a general form, not for applications only. Basically, members submit certain reports (screenshots) twice a week and they usually name them same way.

Of course, overwriting is not an option, usually renaming the uploaded file to something random is a way to go.

And I assume its not possible to directly link to the application?

Anyway, thanks a lot for an amazing mod.

Sorry I missed that part.

You can not link directly to a form. You need to pass through the security of the application type first.

The color for the answes can be set in ACP->Application Forms->Application Form Settings.

The answers are posted in the default font size for posts in your forum. In order to change the font size, you would need to edit application-forms.php starting around line 601 and inserting BBCode for the font size.

NOTE: I do not support editing the code. If you do so, you do so without help and at your own risk.

NOTE: You are also now 10 versions behind. The current version is 1.4.3, I do not support version 1.3.3 any more. And the line number I stated above will most likely be incorrect.

Anyone that downloaded version 1.4.3, please download again. And upload the new files to your server. There was a typo in one of the files.

This only seems to happen on certain systems. Usually Nginx systems.

This should be fixed in today's release.

This one tells me that you didn't have any questions defined for the application form. Go to ACP->Application Forms->Application Postions and click on 'Questions' for the application form that is giving this error.

Sorry, that won't happen. There are too many differences in that version to do that.

Create an Application Type and give the usergroups permission to view it.

Create an Application Position, assign it to the Application Type and give the usergroups permission to view the Position.
