Hello Fillip,

A couple of things. Throughout the line of dragonbyte's products, when cache template as files is enabled, multiple errors display.

Secondly, with this specific mod that I just tried to install, the post bit is too large to fit in its area. Is there a way to turn off the additional post bit information? I take it this is only a pro option?

You can edit each button and turn off the Given and Received stats in postbit - once that has been done for every button, the menu should disappear.

I installed but disabled it for now. Running vb 5.2.1 None of the buttons work, although they do appear, and this is I assume because no buttons are enabled in the "DBTech - Post Thanks" control panel. When I go in to edit to make the buttons work for selected (or any, or all) user groups, when I go to save the settings, after a while I just get the Invalid Page URL error and nothing is saved, so the mod doesn't work at all for me.

Same deal with your other mod vbshout - unable to edit any control panel settings, and when try to save, get the invalid page URL error.

Same here mdawg,

I disabled it, as many errors were showing up. Some of the errors resulted from having enabled cache in styles, when cached as files, multiple errors displayed on the webpage. In the Admincp, multiple errors too, like being redirected to the main home page when clicking an admincp option.

shimei - thanks. But you were able to get this Post Thanks to work at all? because on my 5.2.1 forum I could never even save any settings to activate the buttons in the first place.

I didn't even bother to test it. There were too many errors displaying on my front home page, and in the back admincp to even bother.

I know these issues can be frustrating, but please bear in mind that this is an extensive product and it will take some time (even for the professionals at DBTech) to iron out the issues related to the latest versions of vB.

From what I have seen, they have always provided top-notch support for their products, and I am certain they are working to resolve any issues reported here.

Thanks for the kind works Mark, appreciated

The difficulty in this case lies in the fact that I can't even replicate any of the issues reported, which makes it a wee bit more challenging to resolve.

Hey guys, Just upgraded our forum to this latest vb5 (o dear) and needed a thanks/like product. This seems perfect and the install goes smoothly, but when I go to edit a button and try and make it "active" I click save, and it just directs off to a page cannot be found page....

So this is from within vb admin, I click edit on "thanks" and click to make it active, click save, and have a page cannot be found page.

Version 5.2.1 - any ideas?

As you can see above, it's an issue others have experienced that I cannot replicate. I'm working on it, though

Yes it works now! Thanks.

1) Question, the PM that I received when someone clicked Thanks / Like for one of my posts was:

"Dear , I clicked Thanks for your thread: ___________________. The discussion is located at:_______"

Why does it send the message to , and not have my username there? Is there a setting for this?


2) Also, after installing your mod, I started getting these database errors, repeatedly:

Database error in vBulletin 5.2.1:

Invalid SQL:
SELECT * FROM template
WHERE `templateid` IN (12731);

MySQL Error : MySQL server has gone away
Error Number : 2006
Request Date : Thursday, May 12th 2016 @ 04:10:13 AM
Error Date : Thursday, May 12th 2016 @ 04:12:07 AM

and on each error the Script refers back to the specific thread where I was thanked/liked for a post - the only post in the entire forum so far that has this thank/like action on it.
