Automatic Products Update Check

If you installed this mod, please "Mark as Installed".

Every forum owner installs quite many mods to improve the system and add necessary functions. What's important is to keep your mods updated to avoid issues and security bugs.
When time pass, you forget to check your mods. Sometimes it just too much effort to check each mod manually.

What's the solution?
An automatic process that will do that for you and inform you when you're running an old version.

Compatibility:
vBulleting 3: 3.6.0 and newer.
vBulleting 4: 4.0.0 and newer.

Installations:
You don't have to change anything in the templates/files, just upload the plugin and that's all.
AdminCP > Plugins & Products > Manage Products > [Add/Import Product]

History:
  • [04-02-12] v1.0:
    - First Release
  • [17-05-12] v1.5:
    - Added cache
    - New Settings: Enable/Disable, Cache time
    - Fixed the delay to load the admincp (checking for updates is now running in the background)
  • [01-11-14] v2.0:
    - Code optimization, get results from vb.org faster
    - No longer checking updates for disabled products

I didn't know about this mod. I built the mod for myself and decided to share.
As I can see, the differences are:
- hurik's required upload files - my mod not
- hurik's contain db changes - my mod not
- hurik's mod update the list once a day - my mod update the list on each load (maybe I'll change that to per hour update to make the page load faster)
- It should add a list to admincp home? I tried install this one to check and I didn't see any block.. using 4.1.10

Anyway, there are many duplicates mods in vb.org, but each one built diffrently and contain other advantages.
Mine mod advantages over hurik's mod is that my mod doesn't require upload files and my mod doesn't make db changes.
hurik's mod have also advantages over mine mod, with his mod you can get email update.

His mod also sends an email for the updated mods.

Nothing will show in the admin cp unless there are updates with his mod. No need to have a box or anything show if there are no updates.

I'll stick with his as it only runs via cron once a day which is more than enough. Checking on every page load will slow things down way too much especially if there are a lot of products.

Good work on yours, though, as I'm sure there are those that will use it.

Is there a way to change this to maybe once a day instead of every load?

This mod doesn't show anything if there are no updates either, right? Because I don't see anything.

And yeah, limiting it to once a day would be nice.
