DragonByte Reviews is an advanced review system that allows you to get your users interacting with your forums on a new level

Uses

With a wide range of permissions, you can allow your users to create/rate reviews, and customize it to your liking. You can also setup separate instances of the review system with different rating questions, custom fields and a review front page look.

You can even tie the review system into any product system with a little custom work.

Translations available @ our forum
Support for translations handled by the translator in its respective threads only.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Major Features

Multiple Instances: You can run an unlimited number instances of the review system on the same forum with same set of files! Each instance can have a different look and feel to it with the help of the customizable display blocks, custom fields and custom rating questions.

AJAX integration: We used AJAX wherever we could to help reduce the page reloads, including adding/viewing comments and rating reviews

Images in WYSIWYG editor: We added the vB WYSIWYG editor with the ability to add inline images into the review text so that you can create reviews that pop.

Front End and ACP Approval: Review approval and editing can be done quickly through either the front end by moderators or in the ACP by adminstrators.

I think that an update to this mod after 1.0.2 added the ability to import an existing forum, but I can't find a definite answer to that. Has anyone done this? I've installed the newest update but I don't want to try this yet until someone tells me for sure that it does work.

I do believe that is the case, yes. I'm not sure if it's Pro-only, but it's likely.

I'll enquire with Dylan as soon as I can

I've been trying to reach you through your own forum. Do you check here og there?


Is there anyone else who had problems with the attachment system? I should really know two things. the first is how to to remove the big "test review" picture when its not ment to be a picture there

Nr two is when I try to add pictures, it sends me to a blank page (does not when its not included pictures in the review) The review is posted, but I have to change the url to get out of the blank page.

I'm just asking her, in case some have the solution

Sorry, the developer of the modification is currently unavailable, so I'm helping out with support duties. I already have 30+ products to support, in addition to my regular duties, so my ability to check up on this mod is somewhat limited.

I will get to your support query @ our site as soon as possible.

I apologise for the delay

Ok..
I haven't the free version, I paid for the pro. But I understand you have trouble with time


Maybe some others have had the same issue, and can help? (I have read the thread )

I have installed this on my test site and think it is great! Before adding it to my live site, I was wondering if I could do the following:

Remove or disable where you add primary images
Remove or disable where you add images and Youtube links
Remove or disable "Pro List" and "con List"
Remove or disable "Review Summary"
Change "Title" to "Restaurant Name"
Add more than one "select field" custom field

I have many review categories, one custom field is lets say "odometer reading" fieldid: 3 but I have a category called "DVD players"

Obviously I do not want the custom field "odometer" to show up in "DVD player" categoryid: 5 but want it to only show up in "automobiles" categoryid: 7

nevermind figured it out
