Feature List: Lite

Postbit stats: Shows how many button clicks a person has given, received etc in the postbit. Admins can determine what statistics can show in the postbit to control sizes etc.

Additional permissions: Un-click a button. Control how many stats show on the statistics page, set permissions per subforum.

Buttons in First Post Only: This allows you to only make the first post thankable. If you forum is based around news, releases or anything similar this will allow your users to easily see the quality of the thread in question.

Button Click Anonymity: This feature will be extremely helpful to forums who like the idea of a "dislike" button, but don't like the drama it brings. Now you can set certain buttons to be anonymous - no one will see who clicked.

Missing Feature List: Pro

Auto Collapse Posts: Collapses a post so it doesnt show up by using a formulae for button clicks of your choosing.

Post Colour Thresholds: Ever wanted an easy way for members to tell if a post is helpful or trash?

Members can now see at a glance whether or not a post is helpful, interesting or pointless.

Another thing I just found out is the thanks given do not add to the thanks received of a user all the time. It adds to some user but not to others. Mine is one of the ones where a user has purposely given me a bunch of Thanks but they never accumulated under my profile.

Anyway to make it do it update manually?

Your MySQL server is broken. Please contact your host and tell them you intermittently receive a DB error saying "Error 1213: Deadlock found when trying to get lock; try restarting the transaction".

The error message you're seeing is 100% irrelevant to APTL as it doesn't even mention Thanks at all (in the actual error message, disregarding the stack trace) - it just so happened that the cache was due to be purged when APTL ran

This might be a stupid question, but where are the installation instructions for 5.x? I purchased the pro and there are no instructions in readme or docs. Running 5.05

There's a readme.txt file included in the script, did you try following those instructions?

Here's a recap of the important parts of that file:

I am not seeing the path ./packages/dbtechthanks/xml/product_dbtechthanks.xml

I uploaded all as indicated in step #1
On step 2, I am looking in core/packages
In the XML folder (outside of upload) I see vB3 and vB4 folder. That's it.

I do not see dbtechthanks in packages. Is is possibly I have the wrong version? I downloaded the pro from your website and have v3.17. I can PM you for FTP info if you want.

Hi,

Is it possible to test this? And is it possible to display like in the screenshot for vb4.2 ?
I didn't like how this plugin looks on 4.2. It looks better for vb5...

The version you can download from here is free to test

Porting that look onto vB4 would be a significant undertaking, since the display style I use is provided by vB5 by default for its own "Like" action.
