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.

Any ideas?
Turn off template comments [general options and explained more by more in the install file].

This will not update any review retroactively

I don't have an ETA on the next update at this point. We're hoping for more interest in the mod to warrant a large update soon but if not we'll continue to make small updates to support those who are using it.

This is a bug which will be addressed in the next release.

Thanks Ted.

On another note, have you noticed any issues when mass importing? I'm trying to import around 800 products and it kept hanging after just 2 - so I split the file in to 2 and now the first file hangs on the first product, and the second gets to about 80 and also hangs.

Thanks,

Thanks,
Our test file had about 5 products which isn't 800 but it's more than 1

Any errors? Does the first file get imported?

Already made the fix, just has to get tested.

To be clear, the editor would be on the product creation page only.... reviews show up as threads following the formatting rules of your site.

Or am I forgetting the idea?

It loads past the import page, to the page where each product is shown and imported, and then hangs there.

Normally I would split them up further, but I would rather resolve this issue - since I have another file with over 8,000 products ready to go

Would you like test files?

Fine by me! Just need the editor to make adding content easier than it is right now. Please add this, I can't hardly wait to start using this!

Hi Ted - I really think you should take a look at my issue. I think there is a bug - I have been trying to problem solve, and found that changing the forum ID changes which product hangs. I can't really debug anymore than this.

Your help would be much appreciated.
