Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Auto-Template Additional Files  

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.

Installed - looks promising but I'm wondering how I could adapt this for restaurant reviews?
I'm also get a code error when posting a review but failed to capture an image in time. I'll post it soon if I can grab it quickly enough.

At our forum we have many vendors selling multiple products. Each vendor has it's own subforum. Does this mean I can have this mod implemented in each of their subforums?
Yes!

If you elect to have reviews create new threads they will all be placed in one forum but you can have as many product forums [with reviews showing up as post replies to each product] as you like.

Via your Admin Control Panel. Once installed you will see an area "Product Review Forums" with a manager and add product feature.

No problem.

Are you using a feed for your affiliates? Perhaps we can build a bulk importer in

The code is from this mod but the comments are not. Do you have something installed that comments each mod's code?

Error codes there generally mean a fault with the new thread so please let me know.

And yes, you can use this for any type of review... there's really no limit. We'll be changing the price field to a string so you can simply put in a price range of $, $$, $$$ type indicators on cost.

Anyway we can change the list price from $ to the £ sign?
Sure.

The $ sign is managed by a phrase... prodforums_priced

You can edit it in your phrase manager.

All of your errors are related to table prefixes... A pesky but sometimes necessary option.
