Dragonbyte Forms is a mod that forces users to fill out a form before posting threads in select forums.

Uses
For instance, you can use it to create a "support ticket" system like the one we have on DragonByte-Tech.com, or simply gather common information.

A powerful alert system lets you receive emails for each new form filled out, and usergroup permissions control who can manage the forms in the threads themselves.

What does 'Marking As Installed' do ?

* It helps you to stay on top of updates - members who have installed modifications will be notified by us whenever new updates are available.

*
For security issues - vbulletin.org will contact all members who have installed a modification whenever a security issue is brought to their attention.

* Marking a modification as installed also helps us know how many people are using our work, giving us extra incentive to provide more features and new modifications.

We appreciate the support!

Major Features
Multiple Form Options You can create an unlimited amount of form categories that allows you to ask any number of different questions on a per-category basis. You can also create separate statuses for forms, which lets you mark forms as "handled".

AJAX integration We used AJAX wherever we could to help reduce the page reloads

When I use this mod and click on create new thread, I get a blank screen.

The URL the blank page shows on is:

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

I use vBSeo. Not sure if this mod is compatible with it.

Can you please try adding
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

directly beneath <?php in your config.php file, then try again?

I get this error when using drop-down menus:

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

But I may not be entering the correct format of question. How exactly do I enter a drop down menu question? The text on the left of the question manager is a bit vague.

This is how I have it at the moment:


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

Is this correct?

It may be that I am filling in the options wrong. Or was the code in my last post right for making a drop-down menu?

Line 4443:

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

The previous and after line:

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

This was done using notepad. I do not know if commented out lines mess up the line numbers.

Hmm, what version of vBulletin are you running? I think I know why, but it shouldn't happen - it doesn't on 4.1.12 and newer.

I've made some code and template changes to attempt to fix this in the next version.

I'd recommend upgrading to the latest version of the branch you're on (so for you, 4.1.12) if you can't make the switch to 4.2 anyway, old versions sometimes have these quirks and it can be difficult for us to support legacy versions
