After being away from coding for IPB for over than 14 months, I’ve decided to write a new application. I’ve always been an big applications guy, like my Marketplace, Classifieds and Advertising system not a big fan of small mods/hooks although, I have made more than 50+ mods/hooks to most versions of IPB.
The reason behind this introduction is this is my personal website and was never used in the IPB scene, so for those who didn’t know my web development background should now be able to have a hint about it.
Right, lets get back to the subject.
This application basically is a review system on submitted products of available companies in certain categories! not making any sense right? I know…
Okay let’s say Apple (company) -> released a new Mobile (category) -> That mobile is called iPhone (product) -> and you like that product so you decided to review it (review) .. thats as simple as I can explain!
Reviews System in general is build to generate more “user generated content” which is why I built it with all possible permissions to let your registered users create everything (companies -> products -> reviews ) but not categories as this should be left to the site administrator do decide. The admins also gets to either enable auto approval of the submitted items or hold it as pending so they can review it before making it public.
I’ve also build the system to be able to carry a whole website on its own, with all the features included to it you can actually depend on the system to be the main focus of your website. features like Latest activities, statuses updates, share links, url shorting, complete fURLs also lets not forget that the system it self is based on interaction and egagement between the company / product creator and the reviewers.
I will post the complete features list later on when the system is done. But for now I will leave you with some screenshots.
- Implement IPB’s reportPlugin
- Custom fields per product/review where users can add them directly
- “Display” List of categories on Landing Page (only display them the core coding is already done).
