The exploit of this mod in question was fixed in version 4.0.4. If you get base64 results it isn't in the default installation, which you could have easily checked by downloading a fresh copy of the mod searching the file contents for base64. Since it has been added to the plugins for this mod you can safely assume that whoever hacked your site added it there.
of course i have been deleted all install folder and secure many stuff in vb. still not sure how they did. we are looking.

So in this case , i had using the v3 of this mod. after upgraded to vb v4 i have updated this mod too but of course upgraded , not a fresh install as i dont want to lose the saved awards and ... . what is ur suggestion in this case to get rid of those mysql query results ?

Thanks in advance

Reinstall the xml file for the mod with allow overwrite checked, that should overwrite the bad code. If it doesn't delete the plugins in question and then reinstall the xml, which should install the default version of the removed plugins. Absolute worst case is export the contents of the awards tables, uninstall the mod, reinstall the mod then re-import the table data.

Also, how hard would it be to make a points leaders stats block for this mod?

Thanks in advance my Man! have a good day !
Adding the logging was fairly simple; however, the entire update is significantly larger, at least partially because of some code re-organization I'm doing, among other improvements.

There are a few outstanding bugs from the 4.0.X series, so I'm thinking about releasing one last small bug fix patch for that one, and I may be able to toss the logging into it. I'm not entirely sure yet about that.

Thanks for this mod. I'm hoping I can get it to work! I am a relative newbie with a forum of 2200 members.

I installed the mod (vb version 4.2.2) and I can see that it is installed, but I can't see it on the forum anywhere or any way to access it. I read most of the posts here and found out that I need to create a tab using navigation manager for the awards, which I did, and I pointed it toward the award.php file location. But when I click on the tab, I get a screen asking me for my vbulletin license number?

Is there a way I can access this program without creating an awards tab? What am I doing wrong? I am at a loss. Thanks for any help.

You have some other issue going on if clicking on awards.php is asking for your vbulletin license number. As far as I'm aware the only location in vbulletin where that number is requested is in the install folder, which you should have been required to delete if you'd properly upgraded your forum to vb4.2.2. You can easily check that nowhere in this mod is that number being requested.

Hello, I have tried everything. I can not get the product to create a new thread. I have full administrator rights, and have tried putting it in different thread id's some with higher permissions, and some that are open to every registered user.

ID's I have tried are
23
23-News-and-Announcements

Nothing works, I don't have any additional anti spam installed. Help?

Are you trying to have it post when you issue the award or when someone requests/recommends it?

This mod only creates a thread/post when an award is requested, not when you give one out to someone.

I would have loved it if it would create a new thread in the forum of my choice when I have someone an award... an announcement to the community that the user received the award.

Dangit, yes that is what it was....hmm its a nice feature, but it was not what i was hoping it would be.

Thanks for solving this mystery for me.

The awards version check in the left menu was fixed. The version check in the products page is still pooched.

It should simply require the number itself not the full url or snippet as you posted so yes just "23" should work.
  • If your having the requests or recommendations posted as a New Thread OR New Post within a existing thread please ensure that the members usergroup has permission to do so, in other words they can't post a new rank request into a private admin-only forum or a new post in a admin only thread correct? Therefor you create a new forum and only allow viewing to normal members without any posting rights etc.
  • If your having users requesting ranks every min or two, adjust your minimum time between posts to be one minute otherwise if you have a minimum time between post set you may run into issues.
