Summary


UBB.threads Reviews produces a Review Directory within your UBB.threads forum install. You can manage your reviews and their categories from the UBB.threads Control Panel (modification of files required for embedding links to UBB.threads Reviews), and users can submit reviews to your defined categories (user submissions are checked against Stop Forum Spam, and must be approved manually from the UBB.threads Reviews Control Panel pages). Outgoing links are tracked and the system has logic to detect unique clicks only.

You can manage all of your review data, and allow your moderators (with user edit access to the Control Panel) to edit your UBB.threads Reviews data, via the Control Panel by installing the UBB.threads Admin Modification Menu and populating the links for the admin_adminmenu.tmpl admin_modmenu.tmpl files.

There are several script configuration options that affect behavior, such as displaying outgoing hits, change the main page listing (top outgoing hits, items with no category set, latest reviews, and categories only), set a max-height for images, and allow/disable user submissions.

Development by James Corthell (Gizmo/Gremelin) of VNC Web Services.
