Post Colour Thresholds: Ever wanted an easy way for members to tell if a post is helpful or trash?

I'll look into that for a bugfix update, thanks

I'll be going through our vB5 versions to ensure compatibility with the Gold version over the course of the upcoming week

In your Readme file you have:

3. In AdminCP -> Plugins & Products -> Manage Products -> Add/Import Product
in the "OR import the XML file from your server" put

./core/packages/dbtechthanks/xml/product_dbtechthanks.xml
You need to remove the /core, that line should read:

./packages/dbtechthanks/xml/product_dbtechthanks.xml

If you are running PHP 5.3.9 or higher you may want to try setting max_input_vars to 10000 or higher.

Happening to me too. I tried a work around, go into phpmyadmin and manually change in the database from 0 to 1 to enable and it still resets itself.

Gonna uninstall until it works again.

Dbtech's are good at updating so just hang in there.

In that case I'll need an FTP and AdminCP account in order to diagnose it further.

There's been a update in vB 5.0.1 that renders part of the database design defunct, I will fix it in a future version

You need to set your button permissions in the Button Management screen in the AdminCP
