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.

1) Points per Character - I'm sure this has already been brought up, but if you give points per character in a post, users can just post a large amount of characters (copy and paste), post, and then edit it out before anyone sees.
i think this should be taken out. if you give even 1 point per character you will have literally hundreds of thousands of points for loyal members or staff.

by post is great if you do it by character that is just to much in my opinion but hey some people want to do it that way.

2) Points per Thread View - Some users of my forum (not even a day after I put up the eStore), have created scripts to simply view a thread repeatedly, thus not only increasing their points rapidly, but also creating a DDoS attack to the server (since they also shared the script with their friends)
this should be corrected imediatelty and those members should be IP banned.


3) untested.. Points for Birthday - I have yet to test this, but if you set your birthday to the *next* day, and then when that day comes, you change the birthday again to the *next* day, so free points everyday
im going to test this as well.

4) Points for Registration/Referral - of course if somebody is so inclined they could create a lot of accounts using a person as the referrer and mass up points this way.
Ban these members. the AE detector will help. i have caugth several members doing this and rules on my forum are no 2 usernames.

Currently I have disabled all the points except for from posts since that is the easiest/only way to see how people are getting their points (except from stealing).

And what's the AE detector? O_o

Edit: n/m found it -> http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showt...ht=AE+detector

I upgraded to v1.1.9 in hopes of fixing the lottery issues I was having. The upgrade went fine and everything appeared normal. However, users cannot open and view a threads. Neither can the administrator account.

The index and home pages appear normal but when clicking on a thread a new page opens, but it is completely blank. Its as if permissions to view a post have been affected. I've checked all forum and usergroup permissions and everything appears normal.

I could not find a setting in the estore options that probibited viewing a post but it appears one is somewhere. Please help. :ermm:

Thanks for posting Rickie3, I thought I was losing my mind!

I found an entry called showthread_start in the Plugin Manager. But I can't tell if there are any problems with it. I guess we will have to wait til CMX sees our post.

It's inside of the user table, use PhpMyAdmin to get the exact value for the user id that is causing the issue.

Just put something in the templates like $foruminfo[ebux_perthread], etc..

Great work on the script thus far, but these are just some ways that it can be "exploited."
1) Then disable the Points Per Character by putting a 0 for this setting.

2) Same principle, for the Multiplier for Thread View, put a 0 there and there will be no points awarded for thread views.

3) This is not an issue, it saves an extra field in the user table saying when they last received a birthday present and if it hasnt been at least 364 days, it will not give them the points.

4) Sure, but its up to u to check for accounts using the same IP and ban them You could always enter a 0 for this setting too

There will be confirm on the lottery and category delete options in the future, but rebuild datastore does not need a confirm as it should always be useful no matter what and build the proper data.

I cant replicate this problem at http://www.ps2hits.com/forums/

CMX, my forums are unusable right now, not posts can be viewed and I don't know what to do to fix the problem. I have even disabled eBux in the Plugin Manager to see if that would allow a post to be read. I'll send you a PM and see how we need to proceed.

ok, two of my users are suddening getting this:

The eStore option you are trying to purchase has an invalid Set Value

for every page of the forums. I -think- it has to do with purchasing the custom title (because that was the one option they both did). And it didn't happen right away. I think it happened seven days after, because that's when the usertitle was set to expire.

Do you know what's going on?

======

edit: ok, it definately has to do with the expired custom title. THe page they get for every page on the forums is:

http://silverforums.net/forums/estor...=expireoptions

It seems that no matter what you click, that same page always loads.

Rickie - did you have a expiration set on the color option? That's the only thing I can think of. The timing of them being locked out seems to fit with the expiration time that was on there as well (I'm guessing. No way to know for sure).
