As announced last month, here we are today with the launch of the next generation of iTrader, version 2.5.0.
The tradition continue, we’re proud to announce that vbEnhancer is now the official host of iTrader, with a new structure, more addons and a cleaner code for the future versions.
This is just an update, because for 2.5.0 we were focussing in centralizing all the existing addons for the old 2.1 version, and we made it clear that it would be easier with a smooth update for the existing clients and an easy spleen for the new players.
So, what do we get in the box?
All the files are now cleaned and easier to debug, here is the setting page in the vBulletin Options:
- Gio~logist’s Main Page is now integrated fully
- A new Profile Tab
- Completely and only compatible with vBulletin 3.8 generation
- Refurbished templates, with new icons for ranking (positive, negative, neutral)
- Option in your Profile Settings so you can show that you are selling/buying something
- Force display of iTrader infos in specific forums
- Display of iTrader Feedback Score in postbit
The thumbnail attached shows the extensive list of settings you can manage thru the regular path. as you can see, some new features have settings in the bottom of that page, they are good to look at.
And here is the form you see when you submit a new feedback regarding one of the transaction you’ve been involved in.
all without any template or file edit…
You want to upgrade, or install as new?
Easy, if you have not used any of the addons released on vBulletin.org, you simply have to upload all the new files, overwriting the old ones, and uploadthe product file, allow overwriting the product, so it upgrade to the latest.
If you have used any addon that required template edits, like the old version of Giologist Profile block or his Main Page, or if you used MagnetiCat’s Profile Tab, you will need to uninstall these first, and hopefully, we provide all these versions in the Jason’s iTrader Archive forum on top of this… (just follow the opposite of the instructions!)
So, that’s it… there is not much new instructions, as now the entire engine is self documented… you can always post a question in this forum, so you are answered as soon as needed… but also, what’s fun, is that we ask for your requests, suggestions, needs; because we want to make the engine even better for the next version, which will jump to number 3.0 …
