FORM TO FORUM/ THREAD/ PM/ EMAIL - Totally CUSTOMIZABLE FORMS
Version 1.3 - Dr. Erwin Loh
-------------------------------------------------------

vB3 version is here:
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=66082


Ever wanted an online form that a user can fill out, which when submitted gets:

1. Posted into a new thread in a forum of your choice
2. Posted as a REPLY to a current thread
3. PMed to you or someone else
4. Emailed to an email address you specify

Or any combination or all of the above?

Well, this is the hack for you!

You can use this for:

1) Moderator Application
2) Quiz Submit Form which gets PMed to a moderator
3) Contact Form that goes to PM, email or thread
4) Guests to apply to be members
5) Report a Moderator form that goes as a PM to you
6) Guests can PM you for whatever reason
7) Order form to buy things
8) Donation form
9) News or Articles submissions that can go straight to a thread


Or anything you like - this hack is totally customizable via the PHP file.

Basically, this hack involves modifying 1 PHP file form1.php (you add questions, options etc. in the PHP file itself), uploading it, and then adding 3 templates.

The beauty of this hack is that once you have added the 3 templates, to make a new form, all you need to do is copy the form1.php and rename it to form2.php, edit the variables in the PHP file, and you have a totally new form!!! You do not need to touch the templates again. However, if you do wish to modify the templates, you can copy and rename the templates. All the names of files and templates can be set in the PHP files.

Format of the form:

1. One main input question
2. 2 Radio buttons Choice questions
3. 3 Normal text input questions
4. 1 Long answer question

This is customizable via the PHP file.


INSTALLATION
------------

Easy - takes a few minutes:

1. Add the 3 templates - they are included as 3 TEXT files - form1.txt, formpost1.txt and formthanks1.txt = just use the names of the TEXT files as the name of the template, and cut and paste the contents.

2. Edit form1.php - the instructions are all inside the PHP file itself, in the top half. Follow the instructions carefully!

3. Upload form1.php

Done!

Just link to form1.php eg. http://www.yourforum.com/forums/form1.php

LAST POST TITLE ON FORUMHOME HACK SUPPORT
-----------------------------------------

If you have the "Last Post Title on Forum Home" hack by PPN, this hack supports it. Just find the line that says:

$lastposttitlehack = "0";

And change it to:

$lastposttitlehack = "1";

Done!


Updates:
------------

Version 1.1 - fixed a username with quotation bug.
Version 1.2 - fixed the email bug - oops... bad spelling...
Version 1.3 - added ability for form to REPLY to a current thread

To upgrade, just download the new form1.php - ensure it says "Version 1.3" at the top.


Enjoy!

Yes. You can edit the variables in the PHP file to allow any usergroup access.

No, no no, the code is already in the hack itself. Don't add more unnecessary code to it!!!

Find this:


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

And modify it as per instructions.

PLEASE READ THE INSTRUCTIONS!
