vB Survey: Add a full-featured survey tool to your forum
Mod Version: 1.9a, by Spikeman (Member) Spikeman is offline
Developer Last Online: Apr 2014 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

This modification is in the archives.
vB Version: 3.6.4 Rating: (13 votes - 4.77 average) Installs: 259
Released: 15 Nov 2006 Last Update: Never Downloads: 1596
Not Supported Uses Plugins Template Edits Additional Files Is in Beta Stage  

What this hack does:

This hack will add a full featured survey application system to your forum. You can survey your members opinions on various topics, or allow usergroups to create their own surveys.

Credits: John W. Holmes: Author of UCCASS Survey.
tamarian: Who originally made this a vB hack for vB 3.5

Application Features: See the UCCASS site for full details.

http://www.bigredspark.com/survey.html

The UCCASS offers some advanced features such as branching conditionals (allows hiding/displaying questions based on specific answers), result filtrations and much more.

Integration features:
Replaced authentication with VB's user database
Set permissions per usergroup, for admin/edit/create/take and view results priviliges.
Replaced config files with vB admin settings
Applied vB style to the UCCASS templates (it uses Smarty)

vB Survey added features: (some will be ported back to UCCASS)
Added anonymity option. If a survey is not anonymous, members can see how other members answered.
Added Hide/unhide survey option. This is useful to send surveys to specific users or usergroups.
Added Date answer types (D), with dropdown lists for day, month, year to ensure correct date entry.
Added REGEX control for new answer types, to control the answer format.
Added size control for single like text answers and REGEX answers.

Liscense: The original UCCASS Survey application is released under a modified GPL Liscense (Aferro GPL) : http://www.bigredspark.com/survey/license.txt (or look under the /docs directory in the zip file)

Installation difficulty:
2 mins, all done via product file.

Installation:

* Unpack the included file
* Copy survey.php to your main forum directory
* Copy the survey directory into your forum directory (cannot change the directory name)
* Install the Product-Survey.xml
* The product file will also install all data for the 2 default surveys to get you started.
* Go to AdminCP => vBulletin Options => Survey System Options - and set the options for access and other settings
* If you get permission errors, change file permissions for the survey directory and its contents to 744, and the owner/group to apache:apache (or, some servers are setup to nobody:nobody):

cd /path/to/main/forum

chown -R apache:apache survey

chmod -R 744 survey

Notes:

The "do not remove" comment on the copyright link in the footer is from the original UCCASS footer template. You may contact the original author, John W. Holmes, for permission to remove the copyright notice, he's willing to talk according to their support forum.

Please click Install if you have installed this mod.

I personally do not claim credit for this hack, however this is what I have done to port over to 3.6.3 :-

1. All tables, templates, phrases etc are installed via product file.
2. Support for wol has been added.
3. Some bugs fixed with the UCCASS system

This hack is for 3.6.3 not 3.5, the 3.5 version can be seen and downloaded here this will not upgrade the 3.5 version.

I did obtain the permission from tamarian to port this to 3.6.

This is my first big hack here so I would grateful if you did click Install if you use it. Remember you only get notified of updates if you Install

Demo Here :- http://www.internetwatchers.co.uk/forums/survey.php please note the Demo may have restrictions as it is a live board. You may or may not be able to test the survey as a guest, this will not affect your sites as generally why would you want guests taking a survey on your site, you would never get a true survey result, I have only enabled this on my board so as to get the ball rolling and you guys can see it. you should all be able to see results page though.

If you have the older 3.5 Hack installed you MUST uninstall that before installing 3.6.3

Reserved for Additional Content

Changes to be completed:
1. Integrated FAQ's
2. Full vBsurvey Documentation
3. Updated UCCASS Documentation

Possible addons I am considering:
1. Ability to post final survey results directly to forum thread
2. Make some ready made surveys that you can import straight in and use

Why is this in beta? I believe that everything should be ok with vBsurvey, I have tested it extensivly on my own site and test site without error, I am just airing on the side of caution. Lets see what the comments bring

I would agree with you, that is why I just had to get it ported. Do not forget to click install

Is it working for 3.6.0 ? Or do I have to upgrade forum to latest version?

I get this error when importing the product

Script and referer domain edited out for security reasons.

This mod seems awesome, and would love to implement it

Thanks

It should work although, i could not test as I only have 3.6.3 goto into your database and drop all tables vbsurvey_ and try the install again ( it looks from your IP listed in the error that you are on a localhost so I am presuming that you can do that easy enough did you have the older 3.5 version installed previous to this?

Thanks for fast response

I did have tables called survey_ and vbsurvey_ already in the database from
old addons. I probably tried the 3.5 version earlier.

Those tables are deleted now, but it still gives me the exact same error

Ok the easiest way to do this is to load the old script and uninstall it, otherwise you will need to go into other vb tables and I do not think you want to do that at this stage. If the uninstall does fail try to install the older version and then uninstall again. Then install vB3.6.3 version. Hope that makes sense.

I ran the vbsurvey_install.php script from 3.5 version, uninstalled it.
That worked, now 3.6 version is installed.

Thanks a lot
