vB Version: 3.6.4 Rating: (13 votes - 4.77 average) Installs: 259
Released: 15 Nov 2006 Last Update: Never Downloads: 1591
Supported Uses Plugins Template Edits Additional Files Is in Beta Stage  

What this hack does:

This hack will add a full featured survey application system to your forum. You can survey your members opinions on various topics, or allow usergroups to create their own surveys.

Credits: John W. Holmes: Author of UCCASS Survey.
tamarian: Who originally made this a vB hack for vB 3.5

Application Features: See the UCCASS site for full details.

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: (some will be ported back to UCCASS)
Added anonymity option. If a survey is not anonymous, members can see how other members answered.
Added Hide/unhide survey option. This is useful to send surveys to specific users or usergroups.
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:
2 mins, all done via product file.

Installation:

* Unpack the included file
* Copy survey.php to your main forum directory
* Copy the survey directory into your forum directory (cannot change the directory name)
* Install the Product-Survey.xml
* The product file will also install all data for the 2 default surveys to get you started.
* Go to AdminCP => vBulletin Options => Survey System Options - and set the options for access 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

Notes:

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

Please click Install if you have installed this mod.

I personally do not claim credit for this hack, however this is what I have done to port over to 3.6.3 :-

1. All tables, templates, phrases etc are installed via product file.
2. Support for wol has been added.
3. Some bugs fixed with the UCCASS system

This hack is for 3.6.3 not 3.5, the 3.5 version can be seen and downloaded here this will not upgrade the 3.5 version.

I did obtain the permission from tamarian to port this to 3.6.

This is my first big hack here so I would grateful if you did click Install if you use it. Remember you only get notified of updates if you Install

Demo Here :- http://www.internetwatchers.co.uk/forums/survey.php please note the Demo may have restrictions as it is a live board. You may or may not be able to test the survey as a guest, this will not affect your sites as generally why would you want guests taking a survey on your site, you would never get a true survey result, I have only enabled this on my board so as to get the ball rolling and you guys can see it. you should all be able to see results page though.

If you have the older 3.5 Hack installed you MUST uninstall that before installing 3.6.3

It is, but you need to change the template and the survey.php file. I've had this installed on my site since vB3.5 and have managed to keep it going all this time. I could try and port this to vB4 if there is enough demand for it. (And with the owners permission)

Hi Mawby

Could you provide more details on what exactly you changed in "the template and the survey.php file" to make it work with 4.0??

Or if you have it ported to vB4?

Thank you so much in advance!

JC

i was more of referring to the functionality of the modification. Many of the features do not work i.e. results, exporting, etc... not to mention styling issues

Survey Mod Installed, But survey.php shows source code.

Its not often that I have to tweak the board i run, so i'm hardly an expert, so maybe I can get a little help with this Mod.

Problem Statement: When I navigate to Http://URL/forum/survey.php I see the source code of the survey.php, instead of what i would expect (a GUI).

Survey.jpg

I believe i followed the instructions for installation.
Survey.php in the forum root.
Survey folder in the forum root.
Installed the xml file by browsing to it on my computer.

All of this done through FTP.
Any help I can get would be great.
