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.

Hrm, if you look in the table pf_product (via phpmyadmin, mysql or just through your vbulletin query manager), do you see any value on that thread id?

SELECT * FROM pf_product WHERE threadid = X;

(add prefixes before pf_product if used).

This is not going to be fun as I can't replicate so I apologize but I'm going to have to try making changes and have you try them out. Try this version of the addon to start.

REPLACE IT WITH THE CURRENT ACTIVE VERSION AFTER YOU HAVE TESTED, IT WILL SHOW DEBUG CONTENT.

Strange, it is giving error 1146
Table does not exist.

That new productforums.php just gives me a blank white screen when I try to go to it.

Don't apologize, I realize this addon was made quite a while ago and for a different version of vBulletin.

I truly appreciate all the help.

Do you use table prefixes? if so, you need to include them into the query.

I went into repair optimize tables as I did not think he used a prefix but I found

vb422pf_product

so ran the query again

SELECT * FROM vb422pf_product WHERE threadid = X
this time I get

An error occurred while attempting to execute your query. The following information was returned.
error number: 1054
error desc: Unknown column 'X' in 'where clause'

Then just for giggles I ran this thinking there needed to be a . between the prefix and the table name

SELECT * FROM vb422.pf_product WHERE threadid = X;

and got this error

An error occurred while attempting to execute your query. The following information was returned.
error number: 1142
error desc: SELECT command denied to user 'tomwayne_vb422'@'localhost' for table 'pf_product'

X is the id of the thread you're looking at reviews for (shown in the url). You could also use productid to figure it out that way.

Whichever you go with, you have to change it to an actual value

I would like to keep asc order instead of desc, the latter is being forced every time I search for something on the product listing page. Anyone has a tip for me? It's only like this since the update. Before that, they were sorted by date (which would be great for the front page).

Ted S, I wonder if you can help with something?

I'm still using this (fairly heavily modded) and it works great. However, there is a "workflow" issue I run into -- people add a new product, I get round to noticing that it has been added, I clean up the entry, approve it... and by then the original person has forgotten they ever added it.

I'd love to streamline this somehow. Basically, I'd like people to be able to add a product and it go live immediately so that the user is immediately prompted to add his/her review. I can always clean up the product entries later.

Is there an easy way to do this? Basically, I guess, it's a permissions thing - just setting a new item to "approved" immediately.

Greetings! I am using version 1.2.3
Is upgrading as simple as over-writing existing files with the new files?
Thank you.
