[DBTech] DragonByte Credits

[DBTech] DragonByte Credits 5.8.4

No permission to buy ($27.50)
Update highlights


Now that we have that out of the way, we're happy to bring you the first Beta version of our first major rewritten XenForo 2 only mod: DragonByte Credits! 🎉

This version has been completely rewritten from the ground up to be a completely native XenForo 2 modification, so this version will not run on XenForo 1. As a result, the UI in the AdminCP has received a major facelift, and now looks & feels as you would expect when running a XF2 mod.

Before we delve into the changes:
  • This is a Beta version, with sweeping database changes. Do not install this on a production forum without a backup that you can revert to in case something goes wrong. But please help us test it!
  • This version will not run on XenForo 1. Going forward, the focus of development will be on the XF2 version.
  • This version is not compatible with DragonByte Shop v6.0.x, the integration will fail and your site will most likely crash.
Without further ado, onto the changes!

Based on feedback, we've removed the "Manage Event Triggers" page in the AdminCP and moved its settings into the standard XenForo Options interface.
The old event triggers page was not very user friendly, with a bunch of elements you couldn't interact with and no indication of which ones you had to click in order to access important settings.

The Events page in the AdminCP has been cleaned up, the old tabs gone in favour of a more standard UI using collapse elements. A lot of descriptions have been updated to either clarify the meaning or be easier to read (especially true for the "if charging / if not charging" phrases).

Front-end wise, most of the changes are in the code, with one exception: invalid redemption codes will no longer say "Redemption successful" but with no credits applied. The user will instead be told that no valid redemptions exist for that specific code.

Once more, with feeling:

What is happening?
On the 11th of July 2018, XenForo published their Resource Guidelines aimed at ensuring performance & stability of XenForo modifications. At the moment, this product does not meet these standards, due to the fact that this product has been engineered to allow the core code to run on both XenForo 1 and XenForo 2.

As a result, I am beginning work on re-engineering this product to become a "native" XenForo 2 modification. At this point in time, there are no plans to re-engineer the XenForo 1 version, as the guidelines appear to target XF2 specifically.

What does this mean for the XF1 version?

Given that I will no longer be able to produce new features for XF1 and XF2 simultaneously without also doubling the work, the version numbers for the XF1 and XF2 versions may diverge going forward. The primary focus of development will be the XenForo 2 version of this product. Support for the XF1 version is NOT ending, and you will continue to be able to download the XF1 version alongside the XF2 version free of charge. Whether I will bump the XF1 version's version number to be in line with XF2 is undecided at this time.

What does this mean for the XF2 version?

First of all, I want to be clear that you will NOT have to uninstall the existing XF2 version in order to continue using this product going forward. I will be releasing beta versions of the re-engineered XF2 version as I finish working on them. I will need your help testing the various features and combinations of features in order to ensure the Gold version is as stable as possible.

When will this update be released?

Unfortunately it is not possible for me to give an ETA on when these updates will be completed, as it depends on the complexity of each individual modification.

Will this be a paid upgrade?

If you have an active license at the time of release, you will be able to download the new version free of charge.

I would also like to ask for your patience while I work on this update. My ability to fix bugs in the existing released version may be diminished, depending on the complexity of the issue.
