Awesome! I'm going to upload the new version when I get home.
Can I simply upload the php and the two new templates, and everything will work? Also, is there a way that I can plug-in a line into each member's profile or postbit with a direct link to their reviews? In the profile, it could be something like the plug-in for photopost:
"All the products I've reviewed" or "last 5 products reviewed"
[product thumbnail] [product thumbnail] [product thumbnail]
If so, how?

Already is a link on our page here and also on profile

Hmm, that looks good. But I was thinking more of their vbulletin profile, like how the photopost block is operated.
Also, I see a problem with the alphabetic sorting: http://www.reeftalk.com/reviews/showcat.php?sl=a&cat=38&limit=
"Premium Aquatics" is listed before "Aquatic Technology" under A. "Premium Aquatics" shouldn't be listed under A at all, definitely NOT above a product with a title that starts with an A. We have hundreds of books with multi-word titles and this style of sorting will throw a lot of people off.

Given the fact there is a manufacturer and title both are searched and displayed by the yes this can happen.
I use both manufacturer and title on my site alot of people dont use manufacturer
I can add a conditional to make the sort by manufacter number 7 a default if $sl exists
September 29th, 2006, 12:07 PM
We removed manufacturer from our fields, which means it'll only search for the product title, correct? Will it then list the products correctly?
September 29th, 2006, 12:16 PM
If your manufacturer fields are empty in the database yes. I also as I noted added a sort default of 7 if sl is used

Outstanding *pumps fist*
Back to my old question, I've never done a small upgrade before. All I have to do is upload the *new* files and all the changes will take place? I don't want our other templates to be touched, so I'm hesitant to run a full installation...
September 29th, 2006, 12:33 PM
If your upgrading from 3.31 then the changes should be as posted above
September 29th, 2006, 01:00 PM
So I simply upload those *new* files? Hasn't showcat been changed as well, though, since it now has the alphabetical listing?
September 29th, 2006, 01:44 PM
Also, would it be easy to copy the line of code that displays a user's reviews in their reviewpost profile and paste it onto their Vbulletin profile template?
September 29th, 2006, 03:15 PM
You upload the files noted in the announcement not just the two new files
September 29th, 2006, 08:28 PM
Goog god, can you do something else about the alphabetical sorting??! It's practically useless as it is now. When I click on "T," every product that has the word "The" in it, regardless of where the "the" is located on the product title, shows. When I click on "T," I expect only products that begin with the letter "t" to appear, or at least appear first.
September 29th, 2006, 08:34 PM
what do you mean? I guess I would have to see how you have things set. if you have multi-word titles not too much I can do as clicking t is going to return any single word in that field that begins with t

Something severly wrong with the new "reviews" feature. One, I've uploaded all the files and it's still not showing in their reviewpost profiles. Two, I manually entered the url to the revshow page (along with the user id of one of our users) and it displayed the reviews of ALL the members that have contributed. I've sent a PM link with examples (please check the alphabetic listing while you're at it)
September 29th, 2006, 09:05 PM
Please post issues with the new version in a new thread. This is an announcement
First off if you have not uploaded all the required files noted in this post if you do not see links to see all reviews in profile or showmembers pages
Second as posted in my last post if you have a single word that starts with t then it will be returned nothing you can do about that
