What is vBAnswers?
vBAnswers is a mod that's especially helpful if you run a tech support forum, or any other forum where your users pose questions to other members for them to answer.

It lets them quickly identify which posts have been marked as the solution to the issue, and also rewards users who post helpful posts via points, as well as trophies displayed next to their usernames.

For security issues - vbulletin.org will contact all members who have installed a modification whenever a security issue is brought to their attention.

* Marking a modification as installed also helps us know how many people are using our work, giving us extra incentive to provide more features and new modifications.

Since you've only downloaded v1.0.2, how can you know that v2 causes problems? We've had no reports of conflict with Tapatalk or FR in the latest version.

I added all 3 blocks as sidebar widgets, yet none show up. What can I do to figure out what's wrong?

Only thing I have is the tab at the top for vbAnswers.

I only have the visible activity and recent posts blocks on forum home. When entering a section, no blocks are visible on the side.

I also activated the mod on a bunch of the forum sections, ones I made a couple of text question categories on.

I'm on vb 4.22

Changed Features:
  • A fresh copy of the jQuery library is now only downloaded if one has not been downloaded previously. Requires updating of all other affected DBTech mods to take full effect.

I'm not sure if the developer still gets on, but is there any way to make this work with normal threads created in the section the sidebar is designated for?
For example, if someone wanted to post a thread in the help section using the post editor for more advanced control options instead of using the sidebar and then having to edit their post after, the thread doesn't contain the functionality of this mod.

Unfortunately that's not possible, sorry
