vbBux / vbPlaza v1.5.8 by CMX (http://www.cmgsccc.com)
Official Homepage - http://www.vbplaza.com

v1.5.7 AND HIGHER are now compatible with vBulletin v3.5.x and v3.6.x

Welcome to the largest points/store system for vBulletin! READ THE ENTIRE POST AGAIN AS THERE HAVE BEEN CHANGES SINCE THE CONVERSION TO vbBux / vbPlaza!!

Credits: MrZeropage for ibProArcade Support, John for v3 Arcade Support, Caimakale for various additions including ribbons and his other addons for vbPlaza, defi for the addon for Paypal Subscriptions.

New Premium Modification Forum: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=171
If you post a new thread in there, it will be easier to track the answer to your thread folks!

Now with 135 Options for purchasing at your forums and this is still rising folks!

NOTE: As of this version, there is a Template Patcher helper inside the Admin CP. Admin CP -> vbPlaza Maintenance -> Auto Patch Templates, when you run this the first time, it will just list the changes that it has found/not found. If you press Attempt Auto Patches, it will modify the template changes it has found only. It will also modify all styles for your forums. I have tested this on all 3 of my licensed vBulletin production websites and the patches all worked great.

UPDATED MUST READ NOTES:
1) RE-READ THE UPGRADING OR NEW INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS AS THEY HAVE CHANGED FROM THE PREVIOUS VERSIONS!!
2) IF UPGRADING FROM A PREVIOUS VERSION OF eBux / eStore. YOU MUST INSTALL THIS ONE FIRST TO SAVE YOUR SETTINGS. (BUT YOU WOULD KNOW THIS IF YOU READ THE UPGRADING INSTRUCTIONS!! DONT SAY I DIDNT WARN YOU!!)

Branding Free Option
If you have donated in the past, you can get the Branding Free Option for Free by sending CMX a PM on the http://www.vbplaza.com/forums Message Board.
Otherwise, you will need to purchase it by signing up for an account at http://www.vbplaza.com/forums/register.php and then going to http://www.vbplaza.com/forums/payments.php

Features List:
This section has been moved due to its length. Look in the file included insize the zip named features.txt.

Release Notes:
This section will only show the most recent changes. For the rest of the changes, look in the file included inside the zip named changes.txt.

NOTE: If you want ibProArcade, v3 Arcade or vBookie integration now, you'll have to install the appropriate Addon included in the download. The reason for these parts being packaged as Addons, is to make the install a little smaller for users who do not have an Arcade, and because both Arcades cant be installed simultaneously as well. So it saves space only installing the one that you currently have.

v1.5.8 Updates:
1) Bugfix: Quick editing a post with BB Codes, modified the post directly instead of modifying a copy.
2) Bugfix: Some phrases fixed.
3) Bugfix: TABLEPREFIX bug has been fixed.
4) Bugfix: Addon Product XML sheets do not have executionorder in them anymore for vB 3.5 compatibility.

Database Backups Recommended!
Although I have upgraded 3 forums with this script already, it IS recommended that you backup your database before installing this product!!

Upgrading Instructions:
NOTE: THESE INSTRUCTIONS ARE FOR UPGRADING IF YOU HAD A PREVIOUS VERSION OF eBux / eStore INSTALLED!!
1) DO NOT UNINSTALL eBux / eStore (UNLESS YOU WANT TO LOSE ANY AND ALL SETTINGS.)
2) Reupload all of the files in the upload folder to your forum's root folder. Make sure that all files are being overwritten. Do not move on to the next step until all files are transferred successfully!
NOTE: It could take a long time to install if you have a lot of registered users, be PATIENT! It should display the messages as it goes along to let you know that it IS working.
3) After finished with step 2!! Reimport the product-vbbuxplaza.xml file via Admin CP -> Plugin System -> Manage Products -> Add/Import Product. Make sure that Allow Overwrite is set to YES.
4) Refresh the Admin CP and you will see all of the vbBux / vbPlaza Admin CP features at the top.
5) UNINSTALL THE OLD eBux / eStore NOW!! Go to Admin CP -> Plugin System -> Manage Products -> eBux / eStore -> Uninstall.
6) You can delete all files/folders that have the word estore or elottery in them from the FTP as well.
7) You will need to redo the template edits listed below as almost all of them have changed since the previous eBux / eStore.

If upgrading from a previous version of vbBux / vbPlaza follow these instructions:
1) Reupload all of the files in the upload folder to your forum's root folder. Make sure that all files are being overwritten. Do not move on to the next step until all files are transferred successfully!
2) After finished with step 2!! Reimport the product-vbbuxplaza.xml file via Admin CP -> Manage Products -> Add/Import Product. Make sure that Allow Overwrite is set to YES.
3) Refresh the Admin CP and get to checking your settings!
NOTE: You will be happy know that NO templates have been updated from v1.5.0 to v1.5.2!

New Installation Instructions:
1) Upload all of the files/folders in the UPLOAD folder to your forum's root folder.
2) Import the product-vbbuxplaza.xml via Admin CP -> Manage Products -> Add/Import Product.
NOTE: It could take a long time to install if you have a lot of registered users, be PATIENT! It should display the messages as it goes along to let you know that it IS working.
3) Refresh the Admin CP and start setting up your settings!
4) You will need to do all of the template edits listed below as well.

ok question. When I installed this hack it messed up my boards.

I uploaded all the files into the proper directorys. I installed it using the admin panel. I did the templete updates. I could change all the settings in the admin panel and everything.

What is messed up was members. No logging in, no registering, member profiles didn't exist period.

Does anyone know what I did wrong? It seems to work fine for the rest of you.

Another idea. Members can by a 'robe the bank' option. When they've buyed this they arrive on a page with a 10 digit code protected vault. They have to enter a combination of numbers to obtain access and it's obvious that this must be a tight set security. But...it triggers people to try and spend their points. If it failes -> Jail!

Thanks for your hard work on this project. My members love it!

Possibly by adding another hook where it builds the who's online list.

I'd have to do more research to know for sure.

the refund feature should be implemented exactly the way creedmaniac just explained it to be
Damn it, that will be hard to do, to do a percentage of when it was installed, especially if the user deleted it from their history as there would be no record on the time it was installed.

I could definitely add a setting so there could be a percentage based refund so it could only refund 50%, and I'll add that before 1.1.0 releases tonite.

Thanks!
I will have a custom avatar where you can upload a file too, but not sure if that will make it into this version v1.1.0 or if it will have to wait for v1.1.1

Quite possibly the estore.php could FORCE the $style variable to a specified ID, needs some more researching though.

please see what you can do about those
There will be more forum settings for the thread features soon, like close, open, sticky, unsticky, bump, debump thread in v1.1.0 when it releases.

There are banned words in the usertitle list so they cant choose Administrator if you have that word in the banned words list for user title, but to add a color restriction would be difficult because sure, you could block red, black, colors like that, but what if your Admin title is "#FF0000"... Someone could use "#FF0001" or #FF0100" or "#FF0101"...etc.. It would look so close anyways it wouldnt matter to the user if it wasnt 'exact' anyways. So I think that this feature alone is not really a useful one.

CMX, your persistence, dedication and abilities here are truly laudable. Another impressive piece of work, can't wait to install it.

I've been reading every post, but, I still have one very ignorant question, and I just wanted to make sure before I jumped into this:

I have the lastest uCash installed, upgraded from previous 3.0x version. (I did not install latest uStore). I know that ebux will "read" the uCash points. But, to make this work properly, will I have to eventualy uninstall the uCash program and data tables for uCash/uStore? Will ebux override it and ignore it? Will there be conflicts?

Basically, what do previous successful users of uStore/uCash, from long ago, do, to move over to ebux??

Thanks! Greatly appreciate the time and effort you've put into this for the community here.
