Version 1.4.0 has been released to remove the giftery / list it integration of the addon now that service has been discontinued. No upgrade is needed though there have been a few other bug changes since 1.3.5.

Finding Feedback Can be Like a Needle in a Haystack


The more your forum grows, the more of a challenge it becomes to sort through the history and get the full story.


Product Review Forums Brings Structure to the Chaos


As a full-featured product management addon, PRF sits on top of your forum allowing you to create defined products which, unlike individual posts, stay relevant over time. Each comment, review and even product updates filter back into this one spot allowing for a quick and comprehensive overview while the individual discussions rage on as always.


Here's just a few of the many features you'll find in PRF:
  • Bring structure to products with established pages & reviews
  • Reduce the number of repetitive posts from members looking up the same info
  • Increase your traffic with content-rich, seo friendly, product listings
  • Drive revenue by adding your own affiliate links to product listings
  • Increase the activity stream's value with review integration
  • Engage visitors with integrated wishlists from Giftery.me
===========================

Installation is not upload & go... individualized settings are required. Read the install file.


===========================
QUICK TIPS:
===========================

Enabling Product Forums: To show product details and ratings, each product-forum must be enabled in the forum manager.

Adding Products: You may upload products one at a time through the admin [includes an image uploader using GD] or you can bulk import through XML. You can also enable users to add moderated products through a global and usergroup option.

Product Review Index: To access your forum's product overview go to www.yoursite.com/productforums.php - You may want to add a link to this to your navbar or as a tab.

Customization: This addon is made to be customized. To change the color schema see clientscript/vbulletin_css or dive right on in to the templates and phrases.

Powered by Giftery.me: This mod is maintained includes two integrations you should know about. Both can be controlled through the mod options.

You can increase the length in the database however you will run into issues with the title tag limits on threads which are not unique to this mod and how the pages render.

Ted, if you recall my need to have the full editor in the CP? Could I realistically use the vb4 editor to add all my content, then use your import XML to import all my new content into your Product Reviews?
In others words. Set up a forum that has all my reviews, which I added using vb4 editor, then create an XML of that forum content, then import that into the Product Reviews?

Make sense?

Who are you???

That seems like a rather insane way of doing things to be honest... there's no export function so you'd be copy & pasting, saving, viewing, copying again, saving that and importing it. Let's stop that...

You're going to use XML. Awesome. What you need is the content... Right?

Pop open excel, make a new file with the fields our mod uses, then copy the existing descriptions into any editor -- dreamweaver, something simple & free, whatever and format away. Copy that into excel. Import. Done.

If you don't need to reimport then you just copy it from the current site right into excel or the online editor if you like, HTML is accepted just fine.

Could you PLEASE insert the old BB-Code editor in the next release (selectable in options instead of WYSIWYG)?

If there's enough demand for it we'll certainly address it.

It would just be perfect for my forum.

Is it possible to change meta description of productforums.php? Is it possible to delete the "-" from the <title> in <head>?

Should be possible to sort the products by title and reviews.

It's the product forums template which you can edit as you like.

This is a product info and review mod. What the affiliation of the item is has no barring on the system... if you have a link you want to include in the description, include it.

That will take image uploading which is planned for the future.

For the CMS...I'm running a music website. I want the image and the title to show. Like the latest review. Maybe this isn't for me.

I'm not sure how you jump from that question to the conclusion but best of luck with your site

There are some bugs.. If I delete a post from someone, his review is displayed at productforums.php?do=matches&productid=42 anyway. Also the review stars doesnt disappear.
