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.
  • Places an easy to use button next to the edit button
  • Separate looks for postbit and postbit_legacy
  • Places all Thanks into one small box

  • Search for all thanked posts
  • Administrator can remove all Thanks from a single post
  • Users can remove their own Thanks
  • Turn on and off hack totally
  • Turn on and off hack for only some forums
  • Option to turn off hack for all but the first post of a thread
  • Option to turn off hack for all but the first post of a thread in specific forums

A few things to note:

1) If you did not upgrade to 4.0 and want to save your thanx when upgrading; disable, but NOT uninstall the post thanx before upgrading to 4.0. Once you upgrade to 4.0 upgrade post thanx hack how you would normally upgrade a hack. It should automatically re-enable post thanx hack.

2) No searching feature yet

3) No legacy version of the box with thanx. If you have legacy enabled on your site, you will get the same box as non-legacy users.

4) If you want to move the Thanx button to near the edit post button,
open template postbit
find

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

and move it under

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

5) thanx to I.am and RobbieZ for help with the pictures

6) and a big thanx to the few of you who have donated in the past few days and will do in the coming days.

Excellent!

Just a quick question since I haven't downloaded it as I need the legacy to work, but if we still have the old hack and upgrade, will all the thanks carry over?

Damnz... first Jelle releases the DownloadsII mod and now you with the Thank You mod. The two most used features on my forum!

Fantastic job Abe, really appreciate your hard work and for converting the mod to vB4 in such a short period of time. I will upgrade this mod when I get home, hopefully everything will go fine.

One question though; You say there isn't a legacy version. With this you mean the postbit_legacy template? If so, will there be in the near future? Or is there perhaps a manual workaround?

Again, thank you so much for your hard work! Rated 5 stars and nominated it so that it can compete with the DownloadsII mod! :-D
