vB Version: 3.6.x Rating: (3 votes - 4.33 average) Installs: 27
Released: 11 Jun 2008 Last Update: 18 Jun 2008 Downloads: 503
Not Supported Uses Plugins Re-usable Code Translations  

This is a modification originally developed for 3.6.x for websites wishing to use an application, although originally designed for world of warcraft it can be used for any game.

This Mod only officially works with 3.6... but since this is open code. anyone can take the code and make it work for 3.7 and re-publish it... with credits ofcourse.

I have had this modification for a long time and only today decided to release it to the public hoping somebody might want to carry on its developement because i just dont have time, so feel free to modify the code and re-release it under a different name but please give credit.

Install
  • Unzip "product-vgat" from the "OTD Application System" folder.
  • Navigate to "Plugins & Products" in your vbulletin control pannel and then "Manage Plugins"
  • Upload the "product-vgat" plugin

Your product is now installed and ready for configuration.

Main Configuration (refresh website after plugin installation first)
  • from your vbulletin admin panel go into your Vbulletin options and scroll down to "Guild Application Form Options"
  • configure "form url" and "forum location" to your own preference

Field checking has not really been fully tested or developed so you may encounter bugs while using "Non Empty Fields", "Numeric Fields", "Boolean Fields", The rest is fully tested and operational!!!!

How To Configuring Your Application Questions
The thing that makes my application system good is that its VERY easy to add and delete questions by yourself with minimal programming knowlege, mostly just copy and paste and change the question
  • go into "Style & Templates" and then into "Style Manager" and "Edit" the template you will be using.
  • scroll down to "vgat_form" and double click
This is were you add, edit and delete all your questions which will be required when a visitor fills out their application, I will try my best to explain how to add the following questions: Radio Button, CheckBox, Single Line Text Box, Multiline Text Box, Drop-Down Menu

Radio Button Question Example

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Question = "I Am a Human"
Question Name = q_Human You need to write down the "Question Name" for EVERY question you make because you will need it later when we design your output tmplate which gets posted on your forum
Input Type = radio Indicates that this question is a Radio Button

Check-Box Question Example

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

Drop-Down Menu Question Example
"q_ConnectionType" is your name in this instance, which you will need later

Single Line Text Box Question Example

Multi-Line Text Box Question Example

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.


Now i will explain how to configure your output file which will be posted on the forums.
  • Go back in to your "Guild Application Form Options" panel
  • Scroll down to the "Thread Body" panel

Example Code

As you can see the Names of the questions i told you to write down are done like "{{q_CharacterName}}" between {{}}.

You can also have thread titles look like the following:

A quick warning to people that will use this to submit apps to a private forum.

After installing and testing I noticed that the first response to an app was being emailed to the user who submitted as if he was subscribed to the thread. This happened regardless if the user was set to "do not subscribe" in the user CP. This was a problem becuase our members use the apps to discuess good/bad things that we don't want the app seeing.

My solution:

I'm not 100% sure this is a fix but it worked for me.

In the Plugin System (Application Form Handler) I noticed the line:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Which from what I understand will always send the first reply to the users email address. This is really not a good way to code this as there is never an option to turn it off anywhere since it isn't checking anything.

Proper coding that would look at the user CP should look somethin like this:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

What I did to prevent anyone from subscribing at all to these threads created though the app form was use:

Now I am very new to VB so please correct me if anything I stated was wrong. Thanks

I did use these variable names... do I have to enable something to get it to show the value of the variable?

Any resolution to this issue? I am getting the same message.

The form does post in the proper place, but I get this exact same error just as described above.

I have had much of the problems that have been posted in this thread. I got the token error and resolved it with the instructions provided at the top of the post, then got the problem with the submit button doing nothing and followed the $post code replacement suggested by werkkrew.

Now the form does post but this Fatal error occurs now.

Looks to be a great form for our guild to use for applicants, if I could just get these few bugs squashed.

I'm tryin to make a radio button open a text box if clicked and it keeps coming up with a blank screen.
any help on this perchance?
know it's not the javascript that does it and pretty sure the div functions do.
is there anyway to make those functions work within the script?

my template for the form is attached

I got mine working, or I should say one of my Admins got it working, the Thread Body text has to be edited to match your questions or it will return gibberish. Below is what he put in ours, which returns all the fields correctly;

You will have to change the questions to what ever you put in the xml file, which also has to be edited for your needs. Open it with Dreamweaver or some other xml editor and change the questions to fit your needs, then edit the Thread Body to match, it should work.

I've also attached our xml file, you can compare it to the original sent to you by the mod maker, you can simple edit this one to fit your needs, add more questions, ect...

Hope this helps.

I do have one question, I have mine set up to post applications for General, which it does fine. It post them in the Admin section of my forums, which is again what I want.

But.... it sends out an email to the person who submitted the form every time we comment on it with the details of that post, kinda like subscribing to this thread and getting an email every time some one makes a new post. I want my Admins to be able to post their comments without this information being sent back to the applicant.

How do I disable this feature??

I wonder, can you get this to change so that a user can have a application. Say like they register and sign up their guilds information on their guilds group they can have this application forum?

with a little bit of php knowledge it wouldn't be hard to do that. I won't make it a feature though, because it depends entirely on your custom setup for your site.
