Great is the art of beginning, but greater is the art of ending
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I announce that I cease all development and activity in the programming universe indefinitely. My career has reached the turning point I was not expecting for at least another year, leaving me highly off guard and without laid-out plans for this hobby's continuity. I have begun a 5-year residency program in Neurosurgery which is clearly not compatible, time-wise, with programming.

I gave in all my passion for developing, and you gave me back your loyalty and trust, even when I did not deserve that much. Now it is the time for payback. I release all my present and past work as Open Source software, in the hope some talented developer will continue maintaining and expanding my vision of a modern, sleek forum software. The intrinsic flexibility of MyBB is the true hidden gem of an otherwise outdated codebase; I do hope the project can continue and be updated complying to the latest coding standards.

I hereby thank Euan, kawaii, andrewjs18, Ben, Matt, Omar G., effone, Eric J., Devilshakerz, Wildcard, JordanMussi and all the other team members I have had the opportunity to work with when I was a MyBB team member. I thank Tomm M, my mentor, who inspired me to pick up coding with his piece-of-art plugins. And finally, I thank all of you MyBBoost subscribers who have helped me getting through my toughest university years economically.

Yours sincerely, Filippo

Error in profile when upgrading

This issue is marked as solved

I added a new theme recently to my forum and when a user purchases an upgrade, they get a profile error and are not automatically upgraded.


Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Using $this when not in object context in /mybb/inc/plugins/bankpipe.php(1313) : eval()'d code:4 Stack trace: /mybb/inc/plugins/bankpipe.php(1313): eval() #1 /mybb/inc/class_plugins.php(142): bankpipe_profile('') #2 /mybb/member.php(2949): pluginSystem->run_hooks(Array) #3 {main} thrown in /mybb/inc/plugins/bankpipe.php(1313) : eval()'d code on line 4

In bankpipe settings for this user, it says:
This purchase is currently pending approval by the gateway. Ensure you can accept this payment within your gateway's settings.

However, I have received the payment in Coinbase

What should I do from here?

Edit: I was able to get the error removed by removing $this-> to $lang in bankpipe_purchase_purchases*, however, automatic upgrades are not working

Is there any error in error.log? Another user lamented pending payments which are handled by webhooks. It’s rather difficult to debug these as they are notifications issued by Coinbase shortly after blockchain verifications. If you have a page hit log it would also help.
