Version 1.4.0 has been released to remove the giftery / list it integration of the addon now that service has been discontinued. No upgrade is needed though there have been a few other bug changes since 1.3.5.

Finding Feedback Can be Like a Needle in a Haystack


The more your forum grows, the more of a challenge it becomes to sort through the history and get the full story.


Product Review Forums Brings Structure to the Chaos


As a full-featured product management addon, PRF sits on top of your forum allowing you to create defined products which, unlike individual posts, stay relevant over time. Each comment, review and even product updates filter back into this one spot allowing for a quick and comprehensive overview while the individual discussions rage on as always.


Here's just a few of the many features you'll find in PRF:
  • Bring structure to products with established pages & reviews
  • Reduce the number of repetitive posts from members looking up the same info
  • Increase your traffic with content-rich, seo friendly, product listings
  • Drive revenue by adding your own affiliate links to product listings
  • Increase the activity stream's value with review integration
  • Engage visitors with integrated wishlists from Giftery.me
===========================

Installation is not upload & go... individualized settings are required. Read the install file.


===========================
QUICK TIPS:
===========================

Enabling Product Forums: To show product details and ratings, each product-forum must be enabled in the forum manager.

Adding Products: You may upload products one at a time through the admin [includes an image uploader using GD] or you can bulk import through XML. You can also enable users to add moderated products through a global and usergroup option.

Product Review Index: To access your forum's product overview go to www.yoursite.com/productforums.php - You may want to add a link to this to your navbar or as a tab.

Customization: This addon is made to be customized. To change the color schema see clientscript/vbulletin_css or dive right on in to the templates and phrases.

Powered by Giftery.me: This mod is maintained includes two integrations you should know about. Both can be controlled through the mod options.

I have buttons around the place saying "Review this!". I would like them not to appear if the user has already reviewed it.

Example:

http://www.enworld.org/forum/productforums.php

As you can see every item has a button at present.

I had to learn how to register variables for use with templates. But before that, I had to work out where the code was, and it took me a couple of days to work out it was in a plugin, and what a plugin was.

Still, I got there eventually. Took a while!
What ones did you add in (so I can be sure to port it to the next update)?

Gotcha.

You could use that query though it will add more load as it's coming up on every view to those pages.

To minimize, run it on logged in users only (simple check that there is a userid set). Then use $history with your templates to decide if the button shows or not. I can help if you get stuck in any of that.

I wouldn't worry. My version of the product is so different to yours now that I'm never going to be able to use any updated versions!

My current bugbear is showing product info (rating, number of reviews, etc.) in the umatches_bit template. The PHP code in that area of productforums.php is too complex for me to play with, with all its arrays and loops and stuff.

There's nothing that it shows in forumhome other than forums.

Hello,

I've made a new tab for the product reviews and would like to know if it's possible to keep the "Reviews" tab selected when viewing the product thread. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If I wanted to change the name from Products to something else, for the name of the file as well as everywhere in the pages, say I want to change it to book or books.

So for example productforums.php just becomes books.php
On that page where it says Products and Reviews, it becomes books and reviews. ETC
What would be the easiest way to do that?

Thanks in advance for any help

Rename the file.

Search template manager and phrase manager for all current names and do the same in actual script just in case!

Delete all the files you uploaded including those in the includes/ folder.

Hi, i've moved our forum to a different domain and the images for all the products have been lost. Can anyone tell me where i can change the domain name for the plugin to direct back all the images.

Thanks

The addon uses relative paths and assumes everything is hosted on the same domain as most forums are. You'll need to resync images / update the databsse if you moved the structure around.

I'm curious, in the 3rd pic on the OP. The list of products?

How easy would it be to modify this.

I'd like to see
my books image
the name
the rating
the price,
and a link to the description page
but in 3 or 4 columns across

I think it would take up less space and make room for more products on a page.
