DragonByte Technologies are proud to present InfoPanels v2: The most feature-packed Welcome Panel system for vBulletin, and the first Welcome Panel system for vBulletin 5!

Why InfoPanels?

Info Panels is another product from DragonByte Technologies, creators of vBActivity and vBShout. Info Panels allows you to display useful and interesting information in a much more user friendly way, allowing your members to access important areas of the forum, and important information, without having to go through different menu screens.

The Welcome Panel displays all the information your users may want to see instantly when they log on, without having to go searching for it. A handy Module format means you don't have to fiddle with complex code in order to drop it on ANY page, you simply use the Site Manager natively in vBulletin 5!

The Top X Stats portion of the software allows your users to keep track of whats going on in the forum almost in real time - perfect for boards with many forums which are hard to keep track of!

to wait 3 days for a response, knowing that you have been online

1) i pointed out there was still an issue for B3
2) i would of thought you checked the zip file before uploading knowing that the xml wasnt b3
3) i had to look all though the xml product file to notice a difference and that wasnt easy

sorry that i bumped 2 threads but a response to know that you was looking into it would of been better so that i didnt have to wait 3 days

Honestly I wouldn't expect alot of responses or development on a beta version of software that as DBT has said shouldn't even be used on a live site anyways. I am sure that once vB5 goes gold then all the mods will start rolling in and support will get alot more priority. I happen to know the owners of DBT (not personally but through the net) and I know they work hard to create the best mods for vB there is. I'm sure it's hard to keep up with 20+ products on vB3 & vB4 plus now doing a mod for vB5 give the guys some slack. It's not that big of a deal because as stated it's beta and shouldn't be used on a live site. Just be thankful someone has created a few mods for vB5.

Just a quick note on that, there is at least eight people who log in under the screen name DragonByte Tech, so while you may see the name as being online, it may not be the developer of the mod you are asking support in.

It is standard practice at DBTech for each developer to handle their own mods support issues, as developer A may not know how to handle a situation in developers B mod.

I hope that makes sense to you, not trying to be rude or anything just trying to give ya some incite.

isn't that breathing terms and conditions giving out your username to 8 other people
why not give them access, putting each of their email addresses in the members area that way that wouldn't need to happen

This is a company account for the company license with only company employees or subcontractors having access. Everyone who can access the account also has personal licenses on top of that.

Having separate usernames would mean in the event a coder left the company we would not be able to continue to update their mods (since it would be under their username) and various issues like that.

As far as I know it's not an issue, but if one of the vb.org staff told us there was an issue we would of course look into alternatives.

Suggestions :
this is in regards to all products / template edits
( as mentioned you are a company allowing multiple customers access your account and each have their own individual licence )

1) put the Supporters / CoAuthors name for each of the mods products / templates created

as some would be unsure of who the creator of the product is

It is not an issue, nor is it relevant to a modification support thread.

Also, some people really need to learn a bit of patience, three days is nothing when the modification and support are free.

So, lets now get this thread back to support of the mod.

Because of the constant state of flux this mod is in during development, I've re-branded it to Alpha, however I'm keeping the version number, so this version is Alpha 4.

InfoPanels (vB5) v2.0.6 Alpha 4
Fix: URLs would show replacement string text on AJAX refresh
Fix: Newest Replies block would return invalid data if the thread had no replies
Fix: Fixed an issue that could prevent the Top X Stats from loading on certain systems
Change: Compatible with Beta 14 and newer only!
Change: The copyright notice has moved to the new footer_copyright template hook
Change: Changed the way user info is fetched to be compatible with 3rd party addons
Change: Replaced calls to $vbphrase (legacy code) with the new vB_Phrase class

The Branding Free licences that work for vB4.x and lower also works for this version, that's about it until we get our Copyright Management mod ported

Rebuilt Alpha 5 due to multiple issues being discovered with Beta 16.

In the "What's Going On" box at the bottom of the site, the mod is placing avatars next to each user online, and that is too much with 500 people online, so I want to remove that. How do I do it please?

Thanks,


Nelson
