I can get it to work in the preview page, however when it posts, it puts the answers under the question. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advanced.
Check your Form BBcode

Specifically check Question BBcode: for a \r\n at the end of the line

Also check the Answer BBcode: for bbcode which forces new line eg.[indent]

However, there is something "wrong" when using the vb_editor. The Image button is not shown. And, it's not only on my board, if I look at one of your attachement, this button is not shown too.

Is it possible for you to do something for reinstating it ?

Thanks for your help.

I'll have to look into this

Edit:

vBulletin Options -> BB Code Settings -> Allow [IMG] Code in Non Forum Specific Areas -> Yes

Doe the usergroup need upload access for a specific forum, too? If so, which?

It seems as if the only way the 'Manage Uploads' works from the Form is if the user is a member of either 'Administrators' or 'Super Moderators'.
Check their permissions for the forum where the form is posting.

Wonderful mod, thanks ever so much!

Is it possible to have it PM the member after the form has been submitted? Some of our forms require additional steps, and we know that the applicant won't make note of them from the "thank you" page!

Either way, you made my life soooo much easier! Thank you!

Awesome !

Couple questions can't find the answer to ?

1.) Is it possible to redirect them to the thread that was just created ?

2.) This might be a dumb one but besides the admin panel where there is a link to the form list in the "Usergroups Allowed to View Form Lists" area I can't figure out where the form list or the forms actually exists , what is the link to it ?

3.) I see you accept donations but how do I ? I don't see a PayPal button, forgive my inexperience with this stuff,

Thanks.

Martyh,

Yes, there is a great how-to write-up on the developer's web site, here:
http://www.bananalive.co.cc/showthread.php?t=119

That post explains how to redirect them to the post they made.


To manage your forms, go to your_url_here/misc.php?do=forms
If you gave yourself permissions, you should be able to add, edit, and delete new forms. That is also the link that your users should go to, to see the available forms (if you want to set it up that way). Optionally, you can send them the link to each form individually

To donate, look for the box on the right of the first post (with the mod description). There should be a link there for "Support Developer". Clicking that will take you to a quick form to donate!

Realy Great and Thank you

What shell I say. A very neat and professional work, which will help non-internet-experienced Users to publish structured data with more ease.

Thanks a lot

Hi ,

Can the following happen with what we have so far ?

1.) New user shows up and sees the form but is not able to see the forum by backing up the address. Right now I can't get the two to work together, it seems the view form permission is the same as the view forum permission. I may be wrong and just haven't been able to decipher the settings I'm looking for. Please advise.

2.) Fills out the form or starts to.

3.) Gets prompted to register before they can submit the form which starts a new thread.
( popup register form maybe or a popup link )

4.) Registers and is then returned to the form where they can submit it.

5.) Submits form and is directed to the new thread still not being able to see the rest of the forum.

Basically, I only want new users to be able to post the form to a new thread and then limit their activity on the site to that single thread.

Is any of this possible ?

I got that error also I think it just means that one of the fields doesn't have enough characters in it, I think 10 was the minimum. I'm a novice at this though but give it a try.
