Has this been sorted for VB5 yet? we have it installed by your guys and to be honest we are not using it as it only does what a PAYPAL link button is capable of doing.

I know you busy with the VB4 update but is there a time scale for this to be fixed? or at least a basic working mod so it lists who has donated and shows the donation goal actually showing who has donated and how far we have left to go.

Cheers.

Ps i did try to find somewhere to post on your forums but got real confused as to where what is and where what should be posted

Unfortunately I've not had time to work on the vB5 versions yet, as there's a lot of work involved to fix all the URLs.

Our support forums are here: http://www.dragonbyte-tech.com/f9/
And we have one child forum for each product

Not stable on 5.0.5 - the "Contribute" button returns you to your forum homepage - complete waste of time. AVOID TILL RESOLVED - great potential else.

I rushed to comment on this - I have it working to an extent now... However, When a user pays (I'm on 5.0.5 - there is no trace/audit/sign of this payment on vBDonate, so the bar is STUCK at £0. )

Needs AMENDING QUICKLY!

This modification is flagged as Alpha software. vBulletin 5 differs from vB4 in that they are still making major changes to the software that will affect custom modifications. You should not be upgrading from 5.0.4 (which we tested this mod on) until you're certain all modifications you're using will work.

That being said, we do intend to update these mods, but we're currently very busy with our vB3/vB4 commitments, where the majority of our users are

It never worked perfectly on 5.0.5...

As you can see above, the developer is in no rush to fix the issues either (I made them aware in Jan 2014 that the "Contribution Goal" doesnt work, along with a list of other things.

The ONLY working thing, is the fact you can select a donation amount.

Everything else is broke, I wrote a thread on the developers site - same response as above..

So to save yourself the disappointment - make your own links etc

(I use it on 5.1 - not much works)

One day the developer may surprise us and release a fix.... Don't hold your breath though mate

Thus far I have not been able to get this working in 5.1.1, the contribute button does nothing. I have verified that all files have been uploaded correctly and all fields have been filled out properly.

I get that this is alpha/beta software but if base functionality isn't even in place why release it at all? It's been the better part of a year now... don't you think it's time to put some effort into this project?

I am unable to replicate this issue, and it's been tested in vB 5.1.1 as well as vB 51.2 Alpha 3.

Please try inspecting the page via debug tools (available in Chrome/Opera Next/IE via the F12 button).

The product was released before we realised the complete lack of interest in vB5 modules from our customers, and before we discovered that the rapid improvements made by the vB5 dev team would often be backwards compatible.

DragonByte Tech is a business, and a small business at that. At the time of writing, we have 110 releases. Subtracting the 30 vB3 releases, as the vB3 and vB4 versions are largely identical (ignoring template differences), you're left with 80 unique products. I'm sure I don't need to go into great detail explaining why actively maintaining 80 unique products is completely infeasible for a small business

The reality of the situation is that the vast majority of our Lite users and Pro customers want more vB4 mods, and we still have an active vB3 install base. If the demand for vB5 modifications existed, we would meet it (so long as it didn't heavily infringe on the schedule for vB4 modifications).

Our vB5 modifications will remain in Alpha until such a time as the code base for vB5 has "settled" in a similar way vB4 did (long before 4.2.2 was released) and the demand rises to a point where we can comfortably dedicate the resources needed to properly develop and maintain our vB5 portfolio.

Hopefully that has clarified the situation somewhat for you
