Week / Month Topic Nominations

Acknowledgments:
This release would not have been possible without the existence of the former “Topic Nominations” by J98680B2423E (Data) and "Post Thank You" by Abe1, which provided the mod’s core structure. A nice set of button and awards images have also been provided by princeedward. You can view screenshots at the original mod's thread: VB 3.7 Topic Nominations

What is Topic Of The Week/Fortnight/Month?
It adds a "Topic Of The Week/Month" nomination system for your community.
Topic of the Week/Month is a contest that select posts on which your community can nominate as the best and then discuss them during the course of the selected week/fortnight /month. Any listed topic (post, thread) is eligible for the Topic of the Week/Fortnight /Month selection. This mod should also work in VB 3.7.x, but it has only been tested in VB 3.8.

Features of New 2.0 Version:
  • 50+ bugs fixed & 30+ phrases changed for clarification.
  • Fixed ajax functionality for adding & removing nominations.
  • 16 settings to determine which users can nominate and which posts can be nominated.
  • Documented this mod’s limitations & changelog in the 2nd post.
  • Fixed Hall of Fame to to correctly display most awarded members and topic winners from the past 3 contests (3 awards per contest).
  • Added new setting, max # of nominations user can receive, to prevent a poll being dominated by a single user.
  • Added new function to recount # of current nominations received and past awards.
  • Added new function to manually finalize the current contest, close the old poll thread, and create a new poll thread.
  • An option to enable blog nominations is available and should work (coded by Data), but is not supported (I do not have VB Blog).
  • You must have 3 VB default hooks in the postbit template: see troubleshooting below for details. If you ask for help with a problem, you must state in your post if you have reverted ALL nomination templates and read the troubleshooting tips in the 2nd post. If you haven’t, do so otherwise you will be ignored & can debug it yourself.
Installation instructions:
  1. Upload the content of the "upload" folder into your forum root directory
  2. Import the "product_nominate_topic.xml" product via your ACP:
    ACP -> Plugins & Products -> Manage Product -> Add/Import Product (Allow overwrite for updating)
  3. For upgrades only, REVERT ALL nominate_topic templates in ACP -> “Find Updated Templates” or top FYI section of Control Panel. This mod will work only if ALL templates are reverted since major changes were done to them. Reapply custom phrasing to changed phrases as needed.
  4. Adjust & save the mod settings to your preference in ACP -> VB Options. It is strongly recommended that you use the default, preset options.
    Specify the Forum ID that will receive nomination threads and the Forum ID's for which posts can be nominated. Also specify the User ID of the nomination thread owner.
  5. For new installs only, start a new nomination poll at:
    ACP side menu -> Nominate Topic -> Special Actions -> Create New Poll Thread
  6. Read the 2nd post for Troubleshooting Tips & Mod Limitations and the 3rd post for specific features of this mod.
Version History:
2.0.0: Initial Release.
2.0.2: Fixed table column bug.

@AzzidReign:

Actually, you should wait for the updated xml because I think clicking save just saves the install code and does not execute it. I'll publish the new product files in a few minutes.

@psychobike:


Edited: just reinstall the new xml file; DO NOT do any edits to it.

I just updated the product files to fix a bug. Download and reinstall (allow overwrite).

@AzzidReign: please install & test, I'll need to leave soon.

@psychobike: read my previous post regarding the error you got before you update.

Are you just supporting those that installed ? and ignoring those that are asking pre-install questions?

Just checking !

I'm still getting the following page "The Administrator(s) did not defined a receiving forum for hosting poll results of the TOTW/TOTM contest.".

Edit: Everything is working just fine now. Thank you for the support as well as for a nice mod.

UPDATE!
It's working good so far! I'll let you know how everything goes here in a week and a half when the current poll ends and the new one starts! But no more errors thus far!

THANK YOU!

It's good, works on postbit_legacy, but when selecting a nomination forum, it says none has been selected when I nominate a post, also, the maintainence tools redirect to admincp/ when I use a custom admincp dir.

If you have a custom skin, you probably have to go upload the images to that directory.

All images are in the right place.
/vb/images/buttons/nominate
/vb/images/icons/nominate
/vb/images/misc/nominate

It is installed on a fresh installation of vb. I installed vbulletin 3.8.4 and the first thing after that was installing this mod.
