DragonByte Technologies are proud to present InfoPanels v2: The most feature-packed Welcome Panel system for vBulletin, and the first Welcome Panel system for vBulletin 5!

Why InfoPanels?

Info Panels is another product from DragonByte Technologies, creators of vBActivity and vBShout. Info Panels allows you to display useful and interesting information in a much more user friendly way, allowing your members to access important areas of the forum, and important information, without having to go through different menu screens.

The Welcome Panel displays all the information your users may want to see instantly when they log on, without having to go searching for it. A handy Module format means you don't have to fiddle with complex code in order to drop it on ANY page, you simply use the Site Manager natively in vBulletin 5!

The Top X Stats portion of the software allows your users to keep track of whats going on in the forum almost in real time - perfect for boards with many forums which are hard to keep track of!

This happens on every version upgrade, it's a bug in vB's upgrade process that I seem to have forgotten to report in Jira. I'll create a ticket just now

Beta 3
Fix: Phrase issue with Last Visit
Change: Streamlined some code for various blocks, reduced unneeded function calls when only user ID is needed for that block.

i have noticed this for both online and offline users


for offline users
1) time always says 23:00 for offline users
2) "last visit at 1 minute ago 23:00:00"



for online users ( first visit ) - same user
1) "last visit at 1 minute ago 23:00:00"


for online users ( 2nd visit ) - same user
1) "last visit at 1 minute ago 23:00:00"

i am still awaiting for your support, as you said vb5 connect beta 11 fixed a bug that stopped that error

proof of beta 11 install




product


also why does it say (PRO) when it should be a beta lite product

v2.0.6b2 xml product screenshot


v2.0.6b3 xml product screenshot


have you actually made a mistake and provided us with a pro version or just provided us with the wrong xml product which may be causing the issue

Part 2

the product.xml file you provided in this download for b3 is wrong is pro for some reason and found that

2.0.6B2

Line 420 {vb:date {vb:raw user['lastvisit']}},
Line 421 {vb:time {vb:raw user['lastvisit']}}

is the correct raw
2.0.6B3 Pro - provided in this post for download ( confused )

Line 420 {vb:date user.lastvisit},
Line 421 {vb:time user.lastvisit}




2.0.6B2
line 1147 <settinggroup name="dbtech_infopanels_welcomepanel" displayorder="749">
line 1148 <setting varname="dbtech_infopanels_latestnews" displayorder="30">

2.0.6B3 pro
line 1147 <settinggroup name="dbtech_infopanels_welcomepanel" displayorder="749">
line 1148 <setting varname="dbtech_infopanels_disabledstats" displayorder="20">
line 1149 <datatype>bitfield</datatype>
line 1150 <optioncode>bitfield:nocache|dbtech_infopanels_welcomepanel_content</optioncode>
</setting>
line 1151 <setting varname="dbtech_infopanels_latestnews" displayorder="30">

Okay there's no way I'm reading through quadruple post >.<


Look, I can't help with B11 issues. I'm developing on B13 and it works fine for me. I'm waiting for anyone else to confirm that they have issues with it too.

Furthermore, it's considered by mod authors to be extremely rude to send PMs asking them to read a post in one of their mod threads
To a lesser degree it's also considered rude to bump a thread going "can I have some support".

Whenever I receive an email about a reply to one of my vb.org threads, I'll look at the post in the preview before deciding to reply straight away or not.

If it's someone saying their site broke, then yeah I'll drop everything in my hands to reply to it ASAP.

If it's someone reporting a visual issue in a beta mod for a beta version of vBulletin that nobody is running on a live site, thus affecting exactly nobody, then I won't take a break from coding (I'm very much in a "zone" when I'm coding and distractions make it hard to resume).

If it's someone reporting an issue that I've addressed in the post above theirs, that's answered in the feature list, that's bumping the thread for support, etc...
Those kind of posts make my blood boil, and so I deliberately choose to avoid responding to them right away because I know I would be unable to maintain a professional attitude when responding. That's very much a character flaw in me, and the way I deal with it for the moment is to just take a step back and put it off until the next day or whenever, then come back to it with a fresh mind.

As a result, I tend to answer most of my vBulletin.org support threads in batches.


In short: Please do not bump threads for support, especially please do not PM us to bump threads for support, and please be patient

Thank you for your understanding


Fillip
