vBNominate is an advanced nomination system. Several different types of nominations are available and it is fully automated to keep your users engaged and interested in your communities activity while keeping maintenance down.

Uses
As admin you will be able to create several different types of nominations. The nominations can either end with the top nominated items winning or a separate poll will automatically be created with the top items.

Once the poll is completed the nomination is updated automatically with the results. No manual intervention is needed on your part! You can specify the type of nomination to be run or you can let it run on several different types of items like threads, polls, blogs, etc.

The nominations system will make it easy for users to have competitions for the best post, thread and more while browsing the forum. No need to go to a special page to vote, all voting can be done for any post from any thread via AJAX.

Instructions
Here are some basics on how to get the nominations started.
1) Make sure you modify the usergroups that will be allowed to nominate.
ACP->Usergroups->UserGroup Manager
2) Create a rotating nomination
ACP->DBTech - vBNominate-> Create Rotating
An example, if you want a weekly Thread nomination, set Type to Thread, Cycle to Weekly, End Date way far in the future, like Dec 31 2058. After you submit new Nomination go to step 3.
3) Edit new Inactive Nomination
ACP->DBTech - vBNominate-> Current Nominations
You should now have an inactive nomination. Edit it if you need to make any changes then set it to active.

You should now have a Nomination link in your postbit. At the end of the week it will automatically end and start a new one on the day you specified.

You can also view the live forum here

Will each of these Vendors have the "nominate" text on the thread your looking at?
Also, does this Mod have the ability to let a user from a specific IP vote only once on a specific thread?...for example, the same user can't vote on the same thread multiple times...

Thanks

Do the vendors have user accounts? If they do and are tied to a specific vendor type usergroup, you could make a user nomination with only that usergroup and any post they make will have the option to nominate them.

You can make it so each user can only nominate once per nomination. It doesn't have the ability to restrict to the IP.

Do you have a nomination that's current and active? If you want you can pm me a link and a temp admin account, I'll take a look.

I tried this mod out. It seems decent, but there are a few things that I couldn't get to work or find, and the mod seems to be lacking some features.

1. In the AdminCP there is a welcome message that "displays on the vbnominate front page" Where is this front page? Earlier in this thread you said there is no "front end" at the moment. Does that mean this AdminCP settings does nothing currently?

2. On vb 4.2.0 PL3 the polls do not seem to work. I can get the nominations to work, and I can choose between Auto Score or Polls. When selecting polls, no poll is created after making a nomination. I have selected a forum with which to make the poll in the AdminCP options.

3. Can we move the forumhome block to its own dedicated page? I saw where you explained how to put it below the forums, instead of under the navbar, but it's own dedicated page would be MUCH better.

4. If the forumhome block is turned off, where do users see nominations?

What would be the conditional to add, so that a user could not nominate their own entry.
Possibly not show the image on a users own post.
EDIT:
I have sorted it now.
If anyone is interested in the code, here is what i did, so users cannot vote for their own posts.
I opted to not automatically insert code in the options/settings.
Then in my postbit_Legacy template, i added the following code where i wanted the nominate button to show

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

Hopefully this is of some use to someone, and maybe be implemented in the next release.

I am having issues trying to get this to display. I had this installed before and it worked fine, but I had to roll back my board a few days ago to before I installed this.

I've tried placing it manually and it won't display anywhere. Anyone have ideas?

Just download it again, overwrite all the files, and re install the xml file?

Nope did not help. I did a clean install after I did my backup thinking that something could have errored in the first place.

The mod is working cause we were able to generate a poll post but nothing was in it because no one has been able to nominate.

Is this hack hard to get it to do "Yearly" vice monthly?

I'm ready to buy if it's a simple change.

Never mind about the yearly post above. I didn't realize how it worked and see that would be really tough.

I do have one issue though. I created a nomination. I can see it being an Admin, but no one else can see it.

I checked the permissions on the current nominate, and the rotation areas, and they are set accordingly. I've selected just one usergroup, all of them etc..

I can't get the regular members to see the Vote button..

Is there something else I'm missing?

I was doing so well until I went to install the XML file and I get the error code: /home/theflir1/public_html/dbtech/vbnominate/includes/class_install.php appears to be missing!

Ive checked and double checked and the file is in there.
