Description:
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Trader Ratings has evolved from my vB2 Buy/Sell/Trade User Rating System. This is a rating system for when members buy / sell / trade items from each other (presumably on a FS section of your forum). It is based on the honor system since there is no way to truly tell if they did engage in a transaction. (But I'm working on a way to fix that.) Trader Ratings came about because it was a pain to try and maintain a single thread listing good / bad traders and so far has worked out quite well.

Features:
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
• Rate another member: Positive / Negative / Neutral
• Specify Buyer, Seller, or Trade
• Leave comments about the deal
• Records date when rating created
• Specify a URL to the deal
• Display ratings over time
• Filter based on Buyer/Seller/Trade/or feedback they left for others
• Users can edit/delete ratings left for others (time based limitation)
• Admins & Mods can edit/delete anyone's ratings (just incase)
• Stats page showing best & worst rated members, and recent ratings
• PM notification when a person is rated

Basic Info:
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
I haven't written a FAQ or any real documentation yet, but the way the system works is very simple. The only part that might confuse someone is that the Feedback Score is based only on UNIQUE members. Also, there are simple checks in place to make sure they actually do select proper info and enter a comment. A user is not able to rate themself (obviously). Permissions for viewing / rating are similar to standard forum viewing / posting permissions. Also it checks to make sure users exist and all that good stuff.

Installation Info:
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
This hack is very simply to implement requiring only:
• 1 new file
• 5 new templates / 2-3 template changes (navbar, posbit/postbit_legacy, MEMBERINFO, memberlist_resultsbit)
• 52 new phrases
• 1 new DB table / 1 table DB change & index

An install/upgrade PHP file is included to do all the template/phrase/DB stuff, so basically you run that, upload the file, and edit your postbit template. BAM!

Thanks so much Jason! Installing now.


After Install: I'm having a couple of issues with a blank install on a new board the options for adding a feedback seem a bit off. see www.webmastertrader.com for an example.

You have to rename the upgrade_traderrating_vb2.php to upgrade_traderrating.php (remove the _vb2).

Upgraded!

Works great!

I had it installed on my VB2 and after upgrading to VB3, I kept the DB tables since I was expecting this hack to be ported. Sure enough, the hack is here and the upgrade process went uber good.

Thanks again!

Alex

lifesourcerec & bgray - Check to make sure that it installed the phrases, you can search for "tratings" with the phrase search tool in the admincp.

Also, try commenting out the lines up at the top for:

$phrasegroups = array();

to

//$phrasegroups = array();

I had some trouble getting the phrases to display at first, this is the first time I have really messed with custom ones, but they are displaying on my forum just fine? I'll keep looking into it.

edit - does vb cache phrases? Maybe a cron job needs to run?

I installed on a new clean VB3 and I see no place to leave feedback. Also I see the trader feedback() but thats it.

Ok. Fixed. This is strange. I had to manually find one of the tratings phrase, click edit and then click save (didn't modify it). Now it works. Guess you have to do that to cache it.

Hmm...

I forgot to change the language ID.

How can I change it now?

All the phrases are installed, but are showing the language ID0 and I need it to be 1.
