Forms Hack 3.5


Features:

Ever wanted an online form that a user can fill out, which when submitted gets:
  • Posted into a new thread in a forum of your choice
  • Create a new poll in the new thread with options of your choice
  • Posted as a reply in an existing thread of your choice
  • PMed to you or someone else
  • Emailed to an email address you specify
  • Choose to redirect to the post, thread or forum, or a custom thank you message
  • Choose to redirect to edit post to upload attachments
  • See a preview before they submit

Or any combination or all of the above?

Well, this is the hack for you!

You can use this for:
  • Moderator Applications
  • Quiz Submit Form which gets PMed to a moderator
  • Contact Form that goes to PM, email or thread
  • Guests to apply to be members
  • Report a Moderator form that goes as a PM to you
  • Guests can PM you for whatever reason
  • Order form to buy things
  • Donation form
  • News or Articles submissions that can go straight to a thread

Or anything you like - this hack is totally customizable via the AdminCP.

The beauty of this hack is that once you install this hack, to make a new form all you need to do is copy the main hook, rename it to whatever you want, edit the variables in the hook, and you have a totally new form!!! You do not need to touch the templates again, but can always create new ones and use different templates for different forms.

Format of the form:
  • One main input question
  • 3 Radio buttons Choice questions
  • 3 Normal text input questions
  • 1 Drop down menu
  • 3 Check boxes
  • 1 Long answer question
  • 1 VB message editor text box question

This is customizable via the hook.

Also:
  • You can set the usergroups you want access to this form.
  • Depending on your forum permissions, if the new thread is in a public forum, members can reply to it. This hack allows a form to submit the new thread or post wherever you want it to go.
  • Force the user to answer all questions.

INSTALLATION
Easy - takes only a few minutes:
  • Import the XML into products. (admin cp -> Plug-in System -> Manage Products -> Add/Import Product)
  • Edit the main plug-in - the instructions are all inside the hook itself, in the top half. Follow the instructions carefully!
  • To get to the form, go to: /newthread.php?do=form (change "form" to the name of your form if you have few)

Done!

Use this hack to make as many forms as you like!

Enjoy!

Hmmm testing this, even the generic unaltered form.

Answers are not posting to the forum. The template posts comes up right, and the questions do.. but the answers are blank.

One more bug fix for ya bud.

If you use a tableprefix and use this thread to post a reply, you'll get an error, missed 2 table prefixs.

Change this in the plugin

I decided to acually work on this hack. I made new thread, new poll, new post, and new PM all use VB's functions instead of the form runing the queries. This alows everything to be done correctly. Words beng added to search, subsciptions being emailed, and so on.

Here is the offical list of this major update:

Version 2.5 - Major update:
- Templates have a few lines changed here and there.
- You can now have more then 2 poll options very eazaly
- Polls can'tbe created if your not creating a new thread
- New Thread now uses VB function to add the thread
- New Poll now uses VB function to add the poll
- New Reply now uses VB function to add the reply
- PM now uses VB function to send the PM

Installed and works but it doesn't look like vB code will work in the answers template. Any way to get that to work so that I can bold the questions when the results are spit out?

You can use HTML for that

I have a question - I have mine posting to a new thread. One problem is when the thread gets posted it goes into the moderation queue - any idea how to stop taht? It does not appear to be the forum perms causing it.
