Nice hack but many Products appear as unsupported. How can this be fixed?

hi jluerken,

i see you are from germany. you can find a german version here: http://www.vbhacks-germany.org/showthread.php?t=6608

that many hacks are not support is because many hacks don't use the 'version checking'. so the hack authors have to include that feature in their hacks.

"Not supportet" should be "Not Supported".

It might be a better idea if you only show the hacks that actually need updating on the page, rather than displaying all of them.

i think its better when it show all hacks. you have a better overview of your hacks and you can see for with hacks you have to search for updates your on.

i hope you understand what i mean. sorry for my english ...

thanks atakan koc.

but by the way: your Separate Sticky and Normal Threads hack has a wrong version check url:
<versioncheckurl>http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?threadid=117944</versioncheckurl>
it should be:
<versioncheckurl>http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/misc.php?do=checkversion&t=117944</versioncheckurl>


i have uploaded version 1.1.1:
i have added an cronjob witch informs you about updates or your hacks and some other little improvements.

Modifications should use the product id based url check as a preference, rather than the older thread id based url.

You might want to check your own urls as well since version check does not work for this modification (you appear to have the urls the wrong way around).

That's because the author of those hacks has not added a version check url into their product.
