Hey guys 'n girls,
I am looking for a mod to manage applications to a guild, via PHPBB however I would suspect that this would have many uses! After a lot of searching I can see some abandonded mods, and some discussions around development, but I have failed to find an available mod that I can implement (and I am no programmer
Here is (ideally) what I would like to do:
Have an application form, on a page reached via a link visable only to people who are registered, but not part of a member group (or selected groups). For this form and page to follow the in use phpbb style (and future template changes).
To be able to set up all of the fields on my form from within a control panel, to make some fields manditory, and to perform some validation on fields.
To put a captcha verification check on submission of the form.
For the completed form to be output (with formatting) to a given forum, to which other members can commit on, but the original poster has no access to.
For the topic of the post to be derived from the form and its contents (ie. Application from Name
, a Level X
For an email to be sent to the user confirming that we have recieved thier application, for an email to be sent to a given forum group urging them to look at the application.
7) (nice to have)
The ability to use the control panel, or an admin option, to resolve the application - i.e. I could approve or decline an applicant, and for them to recieve an automatic responce. Ideally containing a reason that I might enter into a form when approving or declining.
8) (nice to have)
The ability to see if the user has previously applied, (i.e. user X has applied 3 times before), along with copies of previous applications, outcomes, and comments.
The abilty to ban users\IP's from submitting the form in the first place (or for the 79th time).
Not essential for my purposes - but if multiple forms could be managed on differing pages this would extend dramatically the potential userbase and the applications for such a mod.
11) (Nice to have)
Routed or Dynamic forms - in my case someone selects a certain 'class', and they then have to answer some class specific questions.
12) (Nice to have)
A mechanic that allows an admin user to deliberately ask a return question to the original applicant, and have thier responce made available, linked to the original application. (This would have to happen in such a fashion that they would not see comments made to thier application by others).
Now I am sure that there is no such thing out there as we speak, certainly with regards to the 'nice to have' features, however I am hopefull that some of the basics here are available in a mod that I have missed! So if anyone has any ideas please let me know, I am being pushed to get recruitment opened up (as well as a 100 other tasks) on this new site!
For reference I am currently running 2.0.22, SubBlack, Attach Mod and Custom Profile Fields. Many thanks to anyone who can point me in the correct direction!!!
