vbFEngine
The Polymorphic Module
by vBulletin Freelancers

Credit goes to Maria (MicroHellas)
as this module has developed 100% from her.
I just did some corrections according to
vBulletin prototype for security.

1.- What's this?

vbFEngize is a polymorphic module. The package contains the engine which is a set of functions and templates, and thanks to the power of the organized in fieldsets custom fields, you can produce any type of module which is base in database records.

2.- Examples

By setting the correct custom fields, you can produce Module for:
  • Profiles
  • Articles
  • Receipts
  • Photos
  • Videos
  • Catalogs
  • Links
  • Classifieds
  • Profiles
  • Collections
  • and anything else related to database records
3.- Standard Fields
  • Category
  • Userid
  • Title
  • Description (using vbEditor)
  • Main Photo
  • Photo Gallery for each record
4.- Including in Lite version Features (functions)
  • Categories
  • RSS for each category
  • Sponsored Records
  • Premium Records
  • Top Records
  • Editor Choice records
  • Newest Records
  • Popular Records
  • Top Users
  • Search by Category, Username, Keywords
  • Bookmarks
  • vbSeo friendly
  • Ability to setup different template in your module
  • Ability to setup different template per category
(1) Records means: Profiles, Articles, Receipts, Items etc

5.- Extra fields
  • Extra fields are reusable (and here is the real power). Eg if you want to use a field "Age" multiple times in a form, you don't need to create it twice. You create it once and then you can assign it to as many fieldsets you want in the same form.
  • Group fields (or fieldsets). No more ungly listing. You can organize the custom fields in fieldgroups, and then assign each field group in one, multi, or all available categories.
6.- Extra field types
  • Text
  • Radio button
  • Checkboxes
  • Textarea
  • Drop list (single select)
  • Drop list (multiple select)
7.- Installation
  1. Upload all files and directories including at "vbulletin" directory to the directory where vBulletin is installed.
  2. CMOD the following directories to 777
    1. /photos (inside vbfengine directory)
    2. /tmp (inside vbfengine/photos directory)
    3. /thumbs (inside vbfengine/photos directory)
  3. For security reasons backup your database AND turn your board off
  4. Check at your AdminCP->vBulletin Options->Plugin/Hook System that Plugin system is enabled.
  5. From your AdminCP->Plugin System->Manage Products choose Add/Import Product and import the product: product_vbfengine.xml
  6. If you want to add a link to your nav bar then you must edit the NAVBAR template:
    1. Search For:
      Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
      Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

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

    3. ....or use any other word you want
  7. By default none usergroup has permissions to use vbfengine, so you need to give permissions to any group. Goto AdminCP->Usergroups->Usergroup Manager and edit any usergroup you like to give permissions.
  8. *** IMPORTANT *** If you don't give to Guest at least "can use" permissions, then they must NOT be able to see the links (Tell a Friend function).
  9. If you've installed vbSEO, Login into vbSEO Control Panel, click "Custom Rewrite Rules", insert rewrite rules (attached in vbseo-rules.txt to not lose formatting) and save settings.
8.- First steps in use
  1. Set the various options at vbFEngine->Options
  2. Setup the categories
  3. Setup (if you need them) Custom fields. Please note that fields are reusable, so in case that for example you want to use twice the field "Age" you don't need to create it 2 times. One is enought.
  4. Setup Custom fields groups. You can add as many fields as you want to a group, and then to assign this group to one or more, or all categories. Please pay attention for unique display order of the groups.
9.- Authorization for reuse and redistribution (but please read carefully!!)
  • For Personal use: You can modify the code as you want by adding or removing features and/or templates, but in this case you can't share these modifications with other usres/members
  • For Coders:
    • You've the permission to:
      • Rename the files (so you can produce different modules).
      • You can setup the extra fields as you want and then to modify the file: products-vbfengine.xml to auto insert the field's values in database.
      • You can post the final product (including my files) for FREE only and only in vBulletin.org. Nowhere else, except if it's a vBulletin community operating by you.
    • You don't have permission to:
      • Modify the code
      • To add more functions (features)
      • To add more extra field types
      • To remove my copyright. But you can add yours, one line over mine.
      • And for sure you don't have permission to sell the module.

Installed on 3.7 beta 3 and works fine so far. IŽll report, if any issues occure...

You may have a look on drupals cck (Content Contribution Kit) which implements controls in content items etc. perhaps youŽll find some interesting features/ideas for this project...
This could be used in marys vbArticles/vbJournal....

I'll check it, but you also need to check this:
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showp...5&postcount=18
for features that already exist in the commercial version (is in Beta testing)

This has potential .... it is a bit like GARS with one exception (which I do like) is that GARS implements this functionality directly to the forums vice being independent of the forums. If this functionality is implemented I'll DEFINITELY make this part of my forum. Keep up the good work!!

We're keeping forums away for one important reason: Version compatibility. Try to install the same mod in ver 3.5.x, 3.6.x, 3.7.x You'll see that it works perfect.
But of course we use the forums. eg in the commercial version, admin can setup every post on xxx category or subcategory, to has it's own forum for discussion.

This is a bit unfair don't you think?

Unfair? I don't think so, except if you misunderstood it. As I know 99% of the mods here don't gives you permission to modify anything and then to post it like to be your job, while I'm doing it but of course with restrictions. Because if for example, you'll add more custom field type and then post it, you're becoming competitor of my commercial version.

But you can modify it as you like, just for your own use. If you want to share it, you can build a special version (eg for recipes), you can add your name in the copyright and then to post it here.

So, what's unfair??

Sorry, I must have misinterpreted you. The way you worded it made it sound like you weren't allowed to customise it at all. What you've said is very fair, my apologies.
