With this hack you can easily check all installed products for updates, it show it directly in the product manager and with one click it checks all hacks for updates.
The information is updated every night per cron job and when you want it can inform you with an admin message or an email, you can also de/activate the notification for each hack individually.

This version should work with vBulletin:
3.8.X approved
4.X.X approved

Thanks go to Andreas for his improvements and ideas.

The screenshots are from a german vbulletin.

German Version:

Arabic: Attachment 124725

Why it doesn't check the newest version on each load?
Because it would take to long until the page would load. And I'm to lazy to make an async check (Too much to change ...).

It shows an error with the hack X. Can you correct this?
No, that is a fault of the hack author. He/She made an error in the version check url. My hacl has only an error if the build in version check show something different then mine (that in the drop down box ...).

* Note * For those of you who get an error on some of the mods.... This is because this modification checks the back links to that modification (normally here). IF any of the following is true, you will get an error
  • The developer's site is offline
  • The link is incorrect either because the thread was moved or renamed
  • The developer had a typing error in adding the back link

These errors can be safely ignored... You'll just have to manual check as you did before you installed this modification. But I would still call this useful as it does seem to check most of the modifications I have without issue.

installed this on 4.1.10,
works and i find it extremely helpful

this should be part of vBulletin 4.1.12 by default !

+ little suggestions:
1. can be the "Error" shown in different color or/and e.g. using Italic ?
2. support multiple emails

- some issue, when the main page notification message should appear?
i can't get it to show even while there are detected new builds of installed modifications

Q: can it differ between enabled and disabled modification
(aka set automatically notification to off when it's disabled and to on when enabled)

Has anyone noticed that this no longer shows in the Advanced Product management mod since 4.1.12? Or am I the only one experiencing that?

Don't waste your time, it hasn't been working since you started using cloudflare. Just like with login problem.
Cloudflare interferes with the CURL fuction feature.
