Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Template Edits Auto-Template Additional Files Translations  

Another mod brought to you by,



First off this mod, [Chris] Reviews, has been taken over by me. It did belong to Christos Teriakis. He has since given me full rights to the mod, so I am releasing it here. Only thing I have changed as of yet is the title, so it is basically the same mod.To upgrade from that mod is the same as any other time, unzip the files, load them to your server, overwriting the old files, then import the new xml. Please remember, this mod is as new to me as anyone installing it, so we are both on a learning curve.


1.- What's this mod?


It's better to say what it is NOT . It is a Reviews system for those admins who want to review one type of items (eg Games, Books, Autos etc) and only one group of rating questions is acceptable for them. With the help of extra fields and a bit works from your side to configure it, you can have a very good reviews section in your site.
  • Supports unlimited categories.
  • You can set the word that will be use in the pages to identify the type of your reviews (eg Game - Games, Book - Books etc).
  • Supports Extra fields (but not searchable).
  • Supports one group of rating questions (but unlimited questions).
  • Supports users' reviews and overall rating.
  • Supports Headline, review text, positive points, negative points.
  • Supports Product photos or YouTube video if exists.
  • Has PM templates for:
    • PM user when admin approves his Review.
    • PM user when admin rejects Review.
  • Reviewer can temporary hide the review and a later time he can activate it again.
  • There are listings for:
    • Category Reviews.
    • Time-frame (What's New) Reviews.
    • User Reviews.
    • Search Results.
  • In view Review page the visitor can also see:
    • Editor Rating.
    • Community Rating.
    • Lowest Rating.
    • Highest Rating.
    • Editor other reviews on sidebar.
  • In all pages there are available the follow blocks having the appearance of widgets:
    • Category Menu.
    • Search Form.
    • Statistics.
    • Top Editor Products (Games, Books, etc).
    • Top Community Products.
    • New Reviews.
    • New Community Ratings.
  • RSS Feeds for latest 10 reviews.
  • Facebook Like Advanced (Shows users who liked a review).
  • ver.1.1.0 Added a setting to allow or not Audio files (in case that you want to review music). Default is OFF. If you turn on then the users can hear the audio file with the included (simple) audio player.
2.- Installation
  1. Download and unzip the files.
  2. Upload the content of upload folder to the directory where your vB installation is. To be sure: reviews.php must be on the same directory as global.php, forum.php etc.
  3. CMOD 777 the directories:
    1. christeris/reviews/photos
    2. christeris/reviews/photos/thumbs
    3. christeris/reviews/photos/tmp
  4. Go to ACP --> Plugins & Products --> Manage Products, and import product-reviews.xml.
  5. Set the various settings in Reviews --> General Options.
  6. Set usergroup permissions.
  7. Check and modify Pm templates, Reviews --> PM Templates.
  8. Set Categories, Reviews --> Reviews Categories.
  9. Set Extra Fields, Reviews --> Review Extra Fields (in case that you want them).
  10. Set Rating Questions, Reviews --> Rating Questions.
  11. *** ATTENTION *** Double check that rating questins are ok before starting adding reviews. After the first review you CAN'T Add/Edit/Delete questions.

3.- SEO URLs
  • If you're using vbSeo open the file Reviews_vBSEO_Custom_Rewrite_Rules.txt and add them to your vbSeo installation.
  • If you're using .htaccasse file copy the contents of htaccess.txt and add it to your current .htaccess files. If you don't have such file and your server is compatible with such files, upload htaccess.txt to your vB directory and rename it to: .htaccess.
4.- CMS Widget / Forum Sidebar block for Latest Reviews

What does 'Marking As Installed' do ?

* It helps you to stay on top of updates - members who have installed modifications will be notified 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 me know how many people are using my work, giving me extra incentive to provide more features and new modifications.

I appreciate the support!

Anyone know why the post new review button won't show up for me? I've already chmodded the folders, made the categories / rating questions, set user group permission + set category permission. But it still won't show up any idea why?

There is no post new review button on the review page you must go to your settings page to add a review maybe when updated it could be added.

P.S forgot to mention links are under review tab also.

I love this Mod, I finally worked out how to get it fully functional for the Community Reviews.

One wish is that the CMS widget could draw a preview of the Content out as well as the thumbnail. I use this on my Home CMS page as a secondary New Content window as New Reviews, but I can't get my contributors to use it much as they like to see the preview text on the Home page mate.

Hey Chris,

We have been trying to get our vb mobile app to go through and gets rejected due to error on our side, which they had let us know on a support ticket, giving us this as the error. And the blame is put on third party mods. Don't want to disable this hack as really brings importance to our site

Error :

<style>
.minigraph {
float:{vb:stylevar left};
background-color:#cecece;
border: 1px solid #003366;
position:relative;
width:70px;
padding:0
}
.minigraph .minibar {
display:block;
position:relative;
background-image:url(christeris/reviews/images/bargraph.gif);
background-position:{vb:stylevar left} center;
background-repeat:repeat-x;
border-{vb:stylevar right}:1px solid #003366;
text-align:center;
color:#fff;
height:14px;
font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
font-size:8pt;
line-height:1.4em
}
.minigraph .minibar span {
position:absolute;
{vb:stylevar left}:1em
}
</style>


Any ideas much appreciated

PHP Version issue

Hi Ozzy,

I have been told that have an issue with my version of php 5.4.32

[[email protected] ~]# php -v
PHP 5.4.32 (cli) (built: Sep 9 2014 21:49:19)
Copyright (c) 1997-2014 The PHP Group
Zend Engine v2.4.0, Copyright (c) 1998-2014 Zend Technologies

Ltd., and
with Zend Guard Loader v3.3, Copyright (c) 1998-2013, by Zend Technologies

When I go to add a review I get broken pages.

Is there any way of fixing this?

First off, I can't see the errors in that screenshot, it's to small.

Open your includes/config.php file and below <?php add the following.


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

So it looks like this:

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

Use a editor like notepad++ to edit any files, don't use Notepad or Wordpad.

Does that fix it?

Hi Ozzy,

I put that in the file as suggested and no, it didn't work. I am using 4.2.3 beta 3

My developer says it is an incompatibility issue with php
