* INSTALLATION *
-------------------
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.
Once the upgrade is complete, you can re-apply your changes to that template.

The best thing would be, when the applicant gets a customizable notification via PM, when someone answers his thread.

I would pay a few bucks for this work, if you don't want to do it for free
Unfortunately that would require almost an entire new add-on that would interface to the AAF system to send PMs when a post is made in a thread. And I'm not inclined to do another add-on for vB at this time.

Spotted a bug, not sure if you are aware of this, or if this plugin is still in maintained but when ever you go to application-forms.php?do=start without submitting what position your applying for, the page just loops over and over.

I can write in PHP, so I am guessing it's a pretty simple solution to the fix.

Not a bug.

There should never be an instance when that link is provided directly without being on the list of application forms where an error is thrown if an application isn't selected.

If you're providing a direct link, then the bug is in your link, not in the AAF system.

Master nhawk is right, it works with 4.2.2 PL1.
The only "change" you maybe need is to translate in your language, if dont want in english.

Make sure you're uploading the CONTENTS of the upload folder, not the upload folder itself. And that you've uploaded them to the same folder that vB is in.

You can't put it in the middle, you have a choice between navtab_start and navtab_end.

Edit the 'Advanced Application Form', 'parse_templates' plugin and change $template_hook['navtab_end'] to $template_hook['navtab_start']

There is no hook in the vBulletin navtabs to place it in the middle.

The application system isn't meant to be held in a forum. I'm surprised it works at all for you.

But, what you're asking about has nothing to do with this add-on.

If you've added a link to the application forms, then the forum_link icon is missing from your style.
