Dragonbyte Forms is a mod that forces users to fill out a form before posting threads in select forums.

Uses
For instance, you can use it to create a "support ticket" system like the one we have on DragonByte-Tech.com, or simply gather common information.

A powerful alert system lets you receive emails for each new form filled out, and usergroup permissions control who can manage the forms in the threads themselves.

What does 'Marking As Installed' do ?

* It helps you to stay on top of updates - members who have installed modifications will be notified by us whenever new updates are available.

*
For security issues - vbulletin.org will contact all members who have installed a modification whenever a security issue is brought to their attention.

* Marking a modification as installed also helps us know how many people are using our work, giving us extra incentive to provide more features and new modifications.

We appreciate the support!

Major Features
Multiple Form Options You can create an unlimited amount of form categories that allows you to ask any number of different questions on a per-category basis. You can also create separate statuses for forms, which lets you mark forms as "handled".

AJAX integration We used AJAX wherever we could to help reduce the page reloads

I'd recommend upgrading to the latest version of the branch you're on (so for you, 4.1.12) if you can't make the switch to 4.2 anyway, old versions sometimes have these quirks and it can be difficult for us to support legacy versions

When will the newt update be released so I can try and start using the select boxes?

Also, am I filling out the forum properly? I have attached a screenshot to show you how I am inputting it.

Ah man, I was supposed to put out a hotfix for your issue Friday but it slipped my mind, sorry
Thanks for the reminder

If you re-download, re-upload and re-import, it should work for you now

As for the not an object, that I don't think I can fix, if it can't be reliably reproduced D:

That's not the same issue then as it's not dying with a fatal error

Can you try it on a default skin? If it works there, then you need to edit the dbtech_dbforms_newthread2 template to follow your skin's non-standard way of displaying content.

Did you upload all the files and re-import the XML, and revert all customised vBForms templates? There's simply no way that can still be happening unless one of those things have not been done =/

vBForms v1.1.0

Priorities
  • Form categories can have Priorities attached to them
  • Lets you determine when a form should be updated to a Closed status

General / Other
  • The "Show Thread" form now applies 50% opacity while AJAX changing of form category / status / priority

DragonByte vBForms v1.1.1
Feature: Improved logging details for Control Panel actions
Fix: It was possible for a rogue ":" to be displayed in threadbit in certain scenarios
Fix: If a question had a data validation type other than "Free" and was not required, it would still produce an error message if no data was entered
Change: Changed the Branding display method to inject itself into the copyright footer (underneath vBulletin copyright) instead of the page footer.
Change: Changed the Branding Free Key to a more secure key.

You need to upload the contents of the upload folder to your public_html folder
