This is a comprehensive review system for ip.board 3.2! If you wish to use it for 3.1, download an older version. This is only guaranteed with the MySql engine and not in strict mode. It may work mostly well in other confiugurations, but has not been tested much in those.
NOTE: Most people rating this modification poorly have not used it at all as you can see by number of ratings compared with purchases.
A basic version of this was made for me as a custom project several years ago. Since then I drastically changed the system. Since it was mainly for myself please go to the site listed as a demo and make sure the features are in line with what you want from this type of system.
Also feel free to post in the topic on this site to suggest any changes in features or to let me know if you're interested in purchasing a much cheaper, basic version if I were to release one.
This system has many features. I will try to go through most of them and add ones I forget at a later date. The system is heavily based on stats, sorting, and can be used with a points system.
- You set up categories and members in permitted groups can add reviews of products which belong in the category. You can also add products in the ACP as well as allow specified groups to enter a new product name when reviewing.
- There is an internal point system where members are rewarded with points for many actions. You may also integrate it with an ip.board point system as long as its point field is in the members table.
- Rate aspects of the product. then products may later be sorted by ratings of those aspects. This can also be done with "category ratings" where the member basically rates how well a product fits into certain categories. For those who don't need this feature a future version will hide this feature.
- A BBCode in the editor only in the review section which allows you to break reviews up into pages. You do not highlight any text, but rather simply click the button as a marker to make it known you wish to switch to a new page.
- There are many stats. Each product shows your own score, the average score from site members, and an "official score" which is a review by a member whose id is entered in the ACP as the official reviewer. In the future this feature may be tinkered with for those who do not want an official reviewer for their site.
- Pages which show the top products, latest reviews, and a page for easy access to your forum friends' review system content,.
- For each product members can submit links to sites which have the products currently on sale.
- A request system where a member with permission can request that someone submit a review for a product they wish to see a review of. They can give some limits on who is allowed to fulfil the request and even pay them points to do so.
- There is a section which allows members to submit questions about products which others can then answer.
- Reviewers can be reviewed. Thus there will be a way of knowing which reviewers are most trusted. There is also a "bias score". The average score that reviewer has given products. This way you have an idea as to whether the reviewer normally rates high or low. Then if the current review is drastically different you will know it must be a special situation.
- You can place an announcement at the top of the review system pages, only viewable by groups you wish to show it to.
- Add products to a favorites list, owned list, or wish list. Each product then links to lists where you can see everyone who ahs that product on one of those lists.
- There is a punishment system where you can deduct points from members or you can even ban them from specific parts of the system.
- Tags. Use tags to let people easily find related products.
- Comment ona product or a review. Just a basic system, not yet integrated with the normal ip.board commenting system.
- A search system which will search products and even tags and categories. Not yet integrated with the ip.board search structure, however.
- A LOT of sorting options where you can sort products by various aspects or compare them.
- A view counter. Similar to the ip.board view counter you can have it update immediately or every x amount of time. there is one view counter for products and a different one for reviews themselves.
- There is a PM system, but it has not been updated to the 3.X notification setup. it will be in the future.
- In the future FURLS will be set up.
As I stated earlier, please feel free to let me know if you would like a cheaper version which is more basic. I thought a lot when pricing this and for many reasons I ended up on this price. Also note there is no renewal cost. The cost of this app may change over time in either direction depending on various factors.
The persmissions are set in the system settigns area of the ACP rather than the global permissions setup. This is an old app and I didn't want to yet change that setup and risk bugs.
Also please be aware that although you can give a link to a product photo and use in this system, you assume all responsibility in understanding the law on the matter. I believe in most cases you could only show photos if you took the photos yourself, but that is up to you to know that you are not violating any laws, copyrights, trademarks, etc... throughout use of this system.
