Can't find this option in Lite: Require a Button Click: Allows you to hide the content of a post, or hie an attachment, until the person clicks a button on the post.
The Pro version = Advanced Post Thanks / Like (vB5) [Beta] for 84.95$? If yes and it work with 5.4 i will buy it! Great!

Is this lite version complete? By that I mean as a "Lite" modification it can function on it's own entirely without use of the pro mod or files? I'm not sure but something seems amiss here...

The reason I'm asking is, in the readme.txt file it states:
/*======================================================================*\
|| 3. First Time Installation / Upgrade ||
\*======================================================================*/

1. Upload all files from the "upload" folder to your forums directory.

2. CHMOD the following folders to 0777
/core/packages/dbtechthanks/vbactivity_type

3. In AdminCP -> Plugins & Products -> Manage Products -> Add/Import Product
in the "OR import the XML file from your server" put

./packages/dbtechthanks/xml/product_dbtechthanks.xml


4. Configure your Usergroup settings by clicking "Manage Buttons" under
"DBTech - Post Thanks" in your AdminCP navigation menu, then
editing each button and setting your usergroup permissions from there.
However the folder and .xml file are not present in the current .zip file you have uploaded here to vbulletin.org, I see the last time this was updated was on May 7th of this year, I believe someone forgot to include all the required files for the "Lite" version in the new .zip file will you please check this and correct? Thanks

The zip file is correct and all files are present & accounted for.



As you can see, the folder and XML file is indeed present.

Whether the instructions work in the latest version of vB5, I can't say, as whether the "core" part of the folder is needed for the vB5 AdminCP to work as intended seemed to yoyo back and forth between versions the last time I looked at vB5.

Fillip,

It appears my download wasn't complete (rare that happens but it did) after I re-downloaded the .zip file just now the folder is present, I extracted to a different location to compare and low and behold the one from just the other night is missing the folder so perhaps something was amiss on my end at said time of download!

Thanks for confirming .
