Not Supported Template Edits Additional Files  

What this hack does:

This hack will add a full featured survey application system to your forum.

Credits:
John W. Holmes: Author of UCCASS Survey.

Application Features: See the UCCASS site for full details. After testing several survey apps, this one is the best:

http://www.bigredspark.com/survey.html

The UCCASS offers some advanced features such as branching conditionals (allows hiding/displaying questions based on specific answers), result filtrations and much more.

Integration features:
Replaced authentication with VB's user database
Set permissions per usergroup, for admin/edit/create/take and view results priviliges.
Replaced config files with vB admin settings
Applied vB style to the UCCASS templates (it uses Smarty)

vB Survey added features:
Added anonymity option. If a survey is not anonymous, members can see how other members answered.
Added Hide/unhide survey option
Added Date answer types (D), with dropdown lists for day, month, year to ensure correct date entry.
Added REGEX control for new answer types, to control the answer format.
Added size control for single like text answers and REGEX answers.

Liscense: The original UCCASS Survey application is released under a modified GPL Liscense (Aferro GPL) : http://www.bigredspark.com/survey/license.txt (or look under the /docs directory in the zip file)

Installation difficulty:
o File changes: None
o DB changes: No changes, 19 new tables

Installation:
  • Unpack the included file
  • Copy vbsurvey_install.php to your admincp directory
  • Copy survey.php to your main forum directory
  • Copy the survey directory below your forum directory (cannot change the directory name)
  • run the vbsurvey_install.php script in the admincp directory
  • Go to AdminCP => vBulletin Options => vB Survey (UCCASS) and set the toptions for acess and other settings
  • If you get permission errors, change file permissions for the survey directory and its contents to 744, and the owner/group to apache:apache (or, some servers are setup to nobody:nobody):
cd /path/to/main/forum
chown -R apache:apache survey
chmod -R 744 survey
Added in v1.5.4 (October, 17, 2005
Now checks primary and secondary permisisons.

Added in v1.5.3 (August 26, 2005
Don't show edit box unless user has permission.

Added in v1.5 (June 7th, 2005
  • Added a new answer type R, for Regular Expressions (REGEX). This will allow new types to be defined for answers, with controlled format. If the question is required, users will receive an error messages, until they enter the proper format. If the question is optional, the users will only get an error if they try to answer the question, but with the wrong format.
    Note: You can disable REGEX type questions by editing the templates.
  • The Size of type 'S' (Sentence) can now be changed, and no longer hardcoded as 50 characters.
  • To upgrade, you will need to run the upgrade option in the installation script and re-upload all the files.

Added in v1.3 (June 5th, 2005
  • Added a new answer type D, for Dates. This will show 3 dropdown lists for day, month, year, to ensure a uniform formate for dates entered by the user, instead of a text box.
  • Fixed a bug in the anonymous message display. It would state survey is not anonymous, when it actually is.
  • To upgrade, just re-upload the files (classes and templates directories)


Added in v1.2 (June 4th, 2005)
  • Removed the "Previous page" button, if the page is the first page of a survey.
  • Answers in the new/edit answer page are sorted by the numeric value. This allows you to add a later value, but set the order higher, without re-editing the whole list to arrange it.
  • Fixed a bug in quotes and escapes in the answer types edit.
  • Upgrade instructions: Just re-upload the classes directory.

Added in v1.1 (June 4th, 2005)
  • Added anonymity option. This is decided when creating the survey. Once set, it cannot be changed. If the survey is not anonymous, users will see on the survey intro a message that they survey is not anonymous, and that their usernames will show in the results table. The results table will show the usernames and a link to their profile.
  • Added Hidden option: By default, all active surveys show up on the main page as available surveys. If you set the survey propert to hidden, the survey can still be active, but not show up for members. This can be useful if you want to email the link to a selected user group. Admins and the survey author will still be able to see hidden surveys.
  • Navbar update to list the various locations in the survey pages.
  • The previous version showed the "no permission" to guests. Now you can allow guests to view the surveys and results by putting usergoup 0 in the admin panel in usergroups who may see the results. But other priviliges will be ignored.
  • A couple of bug fixes
  • Upgrade instructions: Just re-upload all the files, including survey.php

Notes:
1. If you use FTP to upload the survey directory, you might have problems with subdirectories under /survey/smarty/template_c due to the directory names with % signs. In this case, you can delete all the directories under template_c (but not the template_c directory itself). Those subdirectories will be recreated automatically when the templates are read.

2. The "do not remove" comment on the copyright link in the footer is from the original UCCASS footer template. You may contac the original author, John W. Holmes, for permission to remove the copyright notice, he's willing to talk according to their support forum.

Maybe I'm doing something wrong or I'm just stupid but are the folders supposed to look like this? If so I'm unable to upload them to my survery because of that. :ermm:

If you can't upload the zip file and uncompres it on the server, here's what you can do: Delete all those directories under template_c, but keep the template_c directory itself. Those directories will then by created by smarty when those templates are accessed the first time.

I did the 744 thing, but I keep getting permission errors.

EDIT: Am I supposed to manually chmod every directory under /survey 744? There are a lot of sub folders and files underneath there...

Yes, the whole thing. You can type this command from your forum main directory:

chmod -R 744 survey

You need to do this command while in your forum's main directory, where the survey directory is just below it.

Type pwd to find where you are in the directory structure

I'v re-uploaded the zip file with some minor changes. No need to upgrade. If you already installed it, just make this edit in this file:

./survey/templates/Default/results_table.tpl

Find this:

<tr class="alt1"<td>
Replace with this:
<tr class="alt1"><td>
Also made template_c empty, to help those FTP'in. The content will be auto generated when the templates are first accessed.
