Hmm, that is interesting mdawg thx for the heads up there ... I'll have to monitor my board to see if I get the same problem there as you since you and I are pretty much seeing the same things as far as this mod is concerned ... however I have not personally gotten that particular database error yet though ... not before nor after I applied this most recent mod update ... also I can't say i'm seeing any particular slow down on accessing the threads ... but then again my board is not highly active.

I'll let you know if I encounter similar issues, but all looks to be running fine on my end for now ... fingers crossed as I really dig this mod and would hate to have to disable for any reason.

The cause for MySQL has gone away errors is that your server is not configured correctly, or not powerful enough, to handle your current traffic.

This manual entry will tell you more information about the error: http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.7/en/gone-away.html

Most commonly it's the timeout settings referred to on that page that's the cause, so if this is an ongoing problem I would recommend looking into those first and foremost.

At my forum the thank you count has reverted to 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 for everything, on some threads, and shows as 2 / 12 / 1 / 12 / 0 / 0 on another thread, for the same user.

It seems that on old threads the count is correct; on new threads remains at 0.

I sent you a PM now on this too. Thanks.

I can't replicate this issue @ your site, the user in your PM has the same count on both posts.

As I PM'ed you the issue continues and is quite odd. I sent you the screen shots. Within for example a given PM thread or post thread the first PM/post might show 0 0 0 0 0 0 for a user, and then subsequent threads / posts will show the correct count, of say, 2 12 1 12 0 0 for that exact same user. In other words, different counts are displayed for the same user within the same thread.

It seems like the FIRST post of a PM thread definitely shows nothing but 0 0 0 0 0 0 for the user, in other words, the first post on a PM thread shows incorrect values.

Has anyone else experienced this? Check closely please.

I have the same problem. And, in the profile options when a thank is received it sometimes does not list the actual thread, but says so and so has "liked" your post on this "node". That and the constant emails if notifications only is checked made me disable this product, the pro version I purchased.

Fillip, I must regrettably say that I have lost confidence in Dragonbyte products and support in resolving issues and creating a bug free product for Vb 5.

"Node" is the vB5 term for a forum.

It was explained why the email notifications act the way they do in your thread over @ our forums.

Filip, when someone receives a thanks should it appear in the notification like hitting the stock vbulletin like button?

As far as the other issue, what had appeared after someone thanked was a count of zero zero zero across the board. If I am not wrong this was the issue being reported by another?

I regret having posted this issue in this board. Thank you for taking a look at the issues that I was having and resolving them today.

Not at this time, no.

I have tried to replicate this issue @ your site using the same testing methodology reported by the other user. I tried posting a new thread, and I tried replying to a thread. Both actions presented the correct thanks/like count in the postbit (after re-enabling the display for one of your buttons).

I forgot to mention in my previous posts; I saw the issue about the blank forum topics, my guess is that it's to do with deleted content. I updated the SQL query for fetching new entries accordingly.

Hello Fillip,

I am having another issue that I just noticed. When I take my forum offline I get a soft error, a white page that says software error when any dragonbyte product is enabled. If I disable both the info panels and thanks product the board goes offline without error displaying the board is offline.

Could you please elaborate? What do you mean, "software error"?

Unfortunately it doesn't appear to be currently possible for our products to function while the site is offline, sorry

I don't know why vBulletin 5 decided to make every single API call from templates fail with that error but I have found no way around it.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help
