Alternatives to vBux/vPlaza

What alternatives are there to vbux/vplaza? Im asking in the light of the fact that no one has access to the mod now due to the exploitation that has been revealed. Its really important that i get my donations system up and running and i cant wait for the mod author to release a fix. What alternatives are there? Im sure other people want to know as well.

Just dont allow any vbplaza items to send a PM to users. Like on the manage item page itself. Then you should be ok. Just manage the donate function. If you have gifts enabled etc, youll need to turn the PM part off for it.

Is that where the vulnerability is? I can do that easily, but I haven't seen a post about what exactly is wrong.

thats because if it got out on a hacking site for example, all vbulletins with it installed are at risk of being hacked

What is it about vbplaza that is forcing you to use it to receive donations?

Paypal offers all sorts of precoded snippets to just add to your site.

You can also use the SUBSCRIPTION process that's built into vb by default. It offers several internet based means of receiving money. People would be subscribing to whatever you want them to and you call it DONATIONS.

For example you could have them SUBSCRIBE to the Donator's Club or some corny yet catchy term that also makes the people that donated feel better about their donation.

Re-read my post above yours.

I was responding to the part where cheekymonk3y was saying they had to have vbPlaza to receive DONATIONS.

That's all I was responding too. If all he needed was a way to collect $$$ there was no need to wait for vbPlaza for the time being.

oh, i was under the impression that in order to get a donations system going, i would need vbux, and the points and stuff was extra features, guess i was wrong. thx for that, anyway, i tried ushop on localhost and it refused to install....so the only new thing that vbux & ushop bring to the table is points?
