Post Thank You Hack

STAFF EDIT:
Note - The mod author has been unreachable for some time, but the vbulletin.org community has stepped up to provide a number of individual fixes over the years. ForceHSS and Hippy have both combined many of these fixes into product files.

ALL CREDIT STILL GOES TO ABE1 And this is still 'his' mod. Please still mark the mod as installed if you use any version of it.

That said so you don't need to apply a dozen + small fixes yourself you should consider downloading one of the updated packages below:

Hippy has one: in this post.

AND / OR

ForceHSS has one: In this post.


If Abe1 returns he can request these packages be removed.


About this hack:
One of the biggest problems on forums as you may know is 'posts boosting'. There are users who LOVE to say 'thanks' when ever they can. How can it hurt? Their post count goes up, they have nothing to loose.

There are also users who really like to express their thanks to post but don't like posting a post that looks like they're post boosting.

Then comes the moderators who have to delete people's thanks yous so a thread can look readable with out the thanks yous thrown around.

Finally comes the posters of these useful posts. They have no idea how many people really likes their posts if only some people say 'thanks'.

What this hack does is fix ALL these problems - except those users who like post boosting. This places a button called 'thanks.' When a user clicks on it, it places his username in a box right under the post saying that so-and-so says 'thanks' for the post. Every-one who clicks is placed in one box.

By giving your users the extra feature, you forum will look allot nice and organized. It is a guaranteed liking by ALL the members of your forum.


Features:
  • Uses vBulletin easy Product installer/updater/uninstaller
  • Uses AJAX technology so your users don't have to refresh when they thank.

Still no integration of Post Groan Hack. This has been promised since the first 7.x Release.

And of course a Update for Post Groan is missing for 4.0.

Thanks for the update. I did the template edit in the postbit to move it by the edit button however it is still at the default location instead of being by the edit button.

Hello, first thanks for the update.

I have a problem with the post thanks plugin.

I updated it from the last version 3.x and after I enable the plugin the server start with a high load average and forum doesnt load.

I disable all plugins/ blog and /cms and only enable the post thanks, the home page load fine but when I want to see the post there is only a blank page.

How can I check the error, I checked the error.log from the apache but there is nothing.

Thanks.

I installed per directions (like other plugins) and the thank you button doesnt show... I am using default skin so there is no reason why it shouldnt. I see the code in the template but the button doesnt appear.

When I try to uninstall (because my tempate is now messy) I get this

Database error in vBulletin 4.0.0:

Invalid SQL:
ALTER TABLE `vywhbabh_user` DROP `post_thanks_user_amount`;

MySQL Error : Can't DROP 'post_thanks_user_amount'; check that column/key exists
Error Number : 1091

The thanks button or image is in the zipfile under the buttons folders.

Vb4 Doesn't use buttons like they do in 3.8 and predecessors.

It is text with an image next to it. As you hover over the colour will change.

When you click on the THANKS button, the button goes away but the two separators where the button was remain... any way of removing them so it doesnt appear as if a button was supposed to be there?
