vbFEngine
The Polymorphic Module
by vBulletin Freelancers

Credit goes to Maria (MicroHellas)
as this module has developed 100% from her.
I just did some corrections according to
vBulletin prototype for security.

1.- What's this?

vbFEngize is a polymorphic module. The package contains the engine which is a set of functions and templates, and thanks to the power of the organized in fieldsets custom fields, you can produce any type of module which is base in database records.

2.- Examples

By setting the correct custom fields, you can produce Module for:
  • Profiles
  • Articles
  • Receipts
  • Photos
  • Videos
  • Catalogs
  • Links
  • Classifieds
  • Profiles
  • Collections
  • and anything else related to database records
3.- Standard Fields
  • Category
  • Userid
  • Title
  • Description (using vbEditor)
  • Main Photo
  • Photo Gallery for each record
4.- Including in Lite version Features (functions)
  • Categories
  • RSS for each category
  • Sponsored Records
  • Premium Records
  • Top Records
  • Editor Choice records
  • Newest Records
  • Popular Records
  • Top Users
  • Search by Category, Username, Keywords
  • Bookmarks
  • vbSeo friendly
  • Ability to setup different template in your module
  • Ability to setup different template per category
(1) Records means: Profiles, Articles, Receipts, Items etc

5.- Extra fields
  • Extra fields are reusable (and here is the real power). Eg if you want to use a field "Age" multiple times in a form, you don't need to create it twice. You create it once and then you can assign it to as many fieldsets you want in the same form.
  • Group fields (or fieldsets). No more ungly listing. You can organize the custom fields in fieldgroups, and then assign each field group in one, multi, or all available categories.
6.- Extra field types
  • Text
  • Radio button
  • Checkboxes
  • Textarea
  • Drop list (single select)
  • Drop list (multiple select)
7.- Installation
  1. Upload all files and directories including at "vbulletin" directory to the directory where vBulletin is installed.
  2. CMOD the following directories to 777
    1. /photos (inside vbfengine directory)
    2. /tmp (inside vbfengine/photos directory)
    3. /thumbs (inside vbfengine/photos directory)
  3. For security reasons backup your database AND turn your board off
  4. Check at your AdminCP->vBulletin Options->Plugin/Hook System that Plugin system is enabled.
  5. From your AdminCP->Plugin System->Manage Products choose Add/Import Product and import the product: product_vbfengine.xml
  6. If you want to add a link to your nav bar then you must edit the NAVBAR template:
    1. Search For:
      Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
      Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

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

    3. ....or use any other word you want
  7. By default none usergroup has permissions to use vbfengine, so you need to give permissions to any group. Goto AdminCP->Usergroups->Usergroup Manager and edit any usergroup you like to give permissions.
  8. *** IMPORTANT *** If you don't give to Guest at least "can use" permissions, then they must NOT be able to see the links (Tell a Friend function).
  9. If you've installed vbSEO, Login into vbSEO Control Panel, click "Custom Rewrite Rules", insert rewrite rules (attached in vbseo-rules.txt to not lose formatting) and save settings.
8.- First steps in use
  1. Set the various options at vbFEngine->Options
  2. Setup the categories
  3. Setup (if you need them) Custom fields. Please note that fields are reusable, so in case that for example you want to use twice the field "Age" you don't need to create it 2 times. One is enought.
  4. Setup Custom fields groups. You can add as many fields as you want to a group, and then to assign this group to one or more, or all categories. Please pay attention for unique display order of the groups.
9.- Authorization for reuse and redistribute (but please read carefully!!)
  • For Personal use: You can modify the code as you want by adding or removing features and/or templates, but in this case you can't share these modifications with other usres/members
  • For Coders:
    • You've the permission to:
      • Rename the files (so you can produce different modules).
      • You can setup the extra fields as you want and then to modify the file: products-vbfengine.xml to auto insert the field's values in database.
      • You can post the final product (including my files) for FREE only and only in vBulletin.org. Nowhere else, except if it's a vBulletin community operating by you.
    • You don't have permission to:
      • Modify the code
      • To add more functions (features)
      • To add more extra field types
      • To remove my copyright. But you can add yours, one line over mine.
      • And for sure you don't have permission to sell the module.

Really unlimited. See the screenshoots. By adding some extra fields related to job seeking I did a module for job seeking. In the other screenshoot, by adding some fields (questions) about dating I did a dating module. This way, you can easily create a module for Business directory, for Receipts, for Articles etc etc.

Let's say that you did a module for Receipts. The included standard functions, can show:
  • Top Receipts
  • Popular receipts (according to views)
  • Editor choice receipts
  • Sponsored receipts
  • Premium receipts
  • Newest receipts

Is this compatible with 3.6.2 (I haven't been able to upgrade yet) - I am getting database errors for accessing the main page and when trying to add New Extra Fields Group. (Exact database error can be found here - http://www.steadiforum.com/vbfengine.php)

Is this able to pull existing data from the tables, ie - username, date of birth etc ... ?

This is exactly what I have been looking for for a number of years, I hope this works!!

TIA

Jason

Hello Jason,

Please give permissions to Guest, at least "Can use" to be able to enter. What I can imagine for database errors is that you haven't setup categories yet.

My apologies I totally forgot about that - it's done, you should be able to access it now.

I have set one category up - and one extra field - so there is something populated in those tables.

Thanks for your help,

Jason

Sorry to reply to myself - it would appear the table vbfengine_subcategories is missing from the database, I've just checked and it hasn't been set up by the install.

I found the problem, but don't know if I can resolve it right now as I'm connect from my appartment. Olympic removed the subcategories table from the product-vbengine.xml file. This causes the database error
I'll try to see if I've in my laptop any FTP client to connect to the server, to get the code. Otherwise tomorrow morning. I apologize for troubles.

No problems, glad it's something minor, I really want to be able to add this to my community and feel relieved that it's not just a backwards compatible issue!

Will keep an eye on the thread over the next 24 hours, thanks once again for your help.

Jason

For those who have installed vbFEngine till this post, please uninstall it and import the attached xml file, as the zip file contains xml file with missing some tables.

This looks pretty interesting, but still I'm wondering is this to be used with VBClassifieds or VBadvanced, or ++++++++++ products??
