Seba's Advanced Post Rating (SAPR) system with ajax- beta 2.

What is it?
In short: this is the wet dream of every vb board owner

In big: This is much more!
This adds a thumbs up/down post rating system: youtube style.

But wait there's more!
It not only adds a post rating system that works with and without ajax, but it also adds options to filter posts (on-the-flow with javascript) based on that rating.

That way your users will be able to browse easier trough threads by setting a filter, which collapses posts under a certain rating.
It also will prevent users of flooding you're site with 3 word posts.

AND THERE'S STILL MORE! It also adds a system of 'good posts', you can set a value of what is considered as a good post, and if a post reaches this value, the author gets +1 on his good post score.
So you get to see: this user has 500 posts and 150 good posts.

AND IF THAT ISN'T ENOUGH: it's also completely configurable through the admincp.

And if you download it now you also get a very nice installation guide!!

Reminder / read this
This product is still in beta stage and it can contain bugs, backup every thing you change.

Currently the rating only works with vb 3.7, in the future 3.5 and 3.6 will also be supported, but they will not have ajax rating.

This mod works best if you use the postbit template, for postbit_legacy the filtering has few effect as collapsing still leaves a lot of the post

The good posts system still needs further development, which will be done after this beta testing

This is not a supported product, I'll fix the bugs and continue to work on it, but I'll don't answer questions, never.

Edit: One question, why on the ACP does it say "Ja" or "Nee" for options?

Thanks,
the 'ja' / 'nee' is because i'm dutch and I have the dutch language pack installed, but with you it should show as 'yes' / 'no'

Hi,

thank you very much for this nice hack. :)

The bypass checks are not working for me. My registered user has the option 'bypass checks' off and they can rating multiple times.

The option 'Posts with a rating below this will be collapsed by default' is set to -3:
If i rate a post negative (-1), the post will be collapsed. And also a value higher as -1, for example 0, 1, or 2 etc., has no effect. :(

The phrase for negative and positive needs to be exchanged. ;)
For example:
thumb_down -> Geef positieve rating should be Geef negatieve rating
thumb_up -> Geef negatieve rating should be Geef positieve rating

Collapse/Expand is only possible if this option enabeld for a group:
Can filter posts in a thread

If i rate my own post more then 8 times, the good post counter for my post increases to 1. If i rate other people posts more then 8 times, the good posts counter displays 0. Is this a correct behaviour?

Hi,

thank you very much for this nice hack. :)

The bypass checks are not working for me. My registered user has the option 'bypass checks' off and they can rating multiple times.


I really can't reproduce this.
Try it for yourself: set the bypass check permission off and see if you can vote twice on the same post.


The option 'Posts with a rating below this will be collapsed by default' is set to -3:
If i rate a post negative (-1), the post will be collapsed. And also a value higher as -1, for example 0, 1, or 2 etc., has no effect. :(

what is the value in the filter dropdown menu (in the showthread)?
The system uses that value, normally it is the option, but if your usergroup can set a default value, it is the value you've set in your usercp (by default: 0, however in the next update, i'll change this to be the value of the option).

The phrase for negative and positive needs to be exchanged. ;)
For example:
thumb_down -> Geef positieve rating should be Geef negatieve rating
thumb_up -> Geef negatieve rating should be Geef positieve rating

thanks, something i forgot


Collapse/Expand is only possible if this option enabeld for a group:
Can filter posts in a thread

that's normal behaviour, filtering posts is collapsing or expanding posts.


If i rate my own post more then 8 times, the good post counter for my post increases to 1. If i rate other people posts more then 8 times, the good posts counter displays 0. Is this a correct behaviour?

no it isn't, but the good post system is made up very quickly, and needs more work (also for the next beta which will be soon)

Hm, it works sometimes, but not continuously. If it works, then only for the first post in the thread.

Perhaps this is due to this error during load/refresh the site:
75985 75986




what is the value in the filter dropdown menu (in the showthread)?

0. Perhaps a value higher as -1 (0, 1 etc.) should not be allowed.


that's normal behaviour, filtering posts is collapsing or expanding posts.
Thank you :)

Okay, thank you very much for your answer(s). :)

Great Hack !!!!

Can you integrate it with post thank you hack?

Each thumbs up will trigger "thank you"???


And mayb integrate with reputation system?
3+ thumbs up will add reputation? (or whatever setting will be),

Thank you for good job!

waza
14 Feb 2008, 12:23
@kafi: thanks. I won't integrate it with other hacks, but as I've made it with the use of datamanagers, it can be easily done something like:

if($vbulletin->options['postrate_active']){
$postman =& datamanager_init('Post', $this->registry, ERRTYPE_SILENT, 'threadpost');
$postman->set_existing($postinfo);
$postman->set('postrating',"postrating + 1",false);
$postman->save();


btw, beta 2 is coming tomorrow

This has huge potential, but it isn't there yet.

For example, I can vote multiple times even though I shouldn't be permitted.

@Nikke:
Beta 2 is here, this has some bug fixes and some nice new features

I can't increase to +2 and decrease to +1. With IE7 i get a JavaScript error. See attachment, please.


Good Posts feature problem I have. The 'Good posts system active?' is active and the value for this system is set to 2.
The user Webmaster and the user Tester rated my post, but the Good Posts counter is not increased.

Would be extremely nice if you create like a "portal page" with the top threads from different forums... similar to digg.com or keegy.com

This could work updated every XX hours (admin defines) and could be used like for a "magazine"

option 1: different blocks to grab from different forums
option 2: frequency
option 3: grab rating from: all, last month, last week, last day

ETC

This is a good system but I think it's not placed in the right area in postbit.

To have a better effect it should be placed either last in the list of post info on the right or on the right side of the post title.

If this were aligned-right to the post title, within the message, it would stand out more and make it easier to use I think.

You can see what I am talking about in the following link where the mod is not listed last on the right hand side....

the div at $template_hook[postbit_controls] is pushing all other hacks using that location at botton. I tried changing the execution order with no luck. How can I fix that please?

Lionel
04 Mar 2008, 18:04
I solved my problem by splitting the plugin in 2 and by putting the $template_hook[postbit_controls] at postbit_displaycomplete. There you can control the execution order. When you put it at start, it will disrupt all other hacks using that plugin

06 Mar 2008, 18:50
Installed. The idea is awesome, I even suggested it in vb.com's forums.

Seems to be working pretty well, good job. The only thing (of course there's always a thing) is when using postbit_legacy, hiding only the text but not collapsing the post area is strange, but I see in the instructions I can change that. So good work.

Oh postbit_legacy is supported now from the start, right? You said on the instructions I had to change something for it to work but I didn't do anything and it's showing correctly there.

neverstop
07 Mar 2008, 18:37
Regarding collapsing, is there an admin cp option or a way it can be used where the first post in a thread cannot be hidden/collapsed? Edit: While still enabling the rating of the first post.

waza
08 Mar 2008, 00:52
@dream: yeah, it's kind a strange of hiding the text, and not the info. But i don't find a good alternative, as you still need to be able to rate, and the rating is in the info on the left.

@neverstop: The option for the first post is there, but then the rating is also disabled. Maybe i'll add this option later, but I first want to get the current bugs out before adding new features.

Dream
08 Mar 2008, 04:06
Maybe the rating for postbit_legacy could go in the blue bar where the post number is. I can only think of that.

08 Mar 2008, 18:52

It also needs better integration with legacy profile. As many forums use that instead of the VB default. why couldn't this be made an almost full plug-in with maybe a template edit and image uploading?!

Read the modification details before you comment. It states that it's not supported.

IMO opinion unsupported hacks should not be posted. Seriously. What's the point? I know I and most people do not have the time to surf through (in many cases) tons and tons of threads for possible fixes to problems. Most of the time unsupported mods just clutter up the mod area because people are constantly trying to bump a dead mod looking for help.

VB.org should seperate supported and non-supported mods. I'm aware it's unsupported, but if it's unsupported, and like in this case is obviously broken....it should be moved. Or archived.

I doubt it will be released on other forum numbers. This one is unsupported. It happens a lot. Someone makes a hack that rocks on their forum..drop it on vb.org and elsewhere as unsupported....then leave. Doesnt always happen. But happen more time than not. Unless someone else picks this up or the oriinal coder fixes the issues, it's a dead stick.

02 May 2008, 08:05
Vb.org should have some "chip in" for each hack, which will be rewarding and also motivating to build and maintain add-ons.

So if any coder wants to continue this, feel free to do so.


The problem with releasing mods here is that it works for your forum/server configuration, but then the problems begin with people for who it doesn't work. This debugging takes a lot more time than just making the mod.

And the icons to vote negative and positive is on the same template hook as thank you mods by abe. Appreciate if you can seperate it. And possible assign those icons to a more fitting position

I think it would make more sense if the thumbsup/down icons were in the post's titlebar (where the reputation scales/post #/report post icons are) AND when the post is collapsed, only show the title bar, instead of showing the postbit user info too. The only change I would do is add the username to the title bar as well.

I am using it. Problem is guests can vote even with no permissions and you can vote multiple times and a user can vote his own rating, even with ACP config and Permission Config..

Nice mod.

My wet dream tho would be to do this for whole threads, and be able to sort thu threads, complete with badges a la Digg.

You are pretty close, but if you did that, I'd imagine it would be one of the most installed hacks here. I know it's been requested almost a million times.

Anyone have the edits done in TMS??

Ok, nevermind about the TMS edits. I'll post mine later but mine might be different since I have a custom skin.

But does anyone know the query line to run if I wanted to change everyone's options so that it's set to -5 to hide the post? Everyone's is set at 0 right now and it's annoying to have to tell everyone to set their's up to -5 since not everyone looks at announcements anyways.

Secondly, I noticed that when the post is collapsed...the area just goes blank. Has anyone edited the code so that it will minimize the post like it does on Digg? That would be absolutely ideal b/c my users are freaking out b/c they don't know why their posts are "blank". If they see it collapsed they would get the idea more so...

thanks paul for taking over, if u release a stable version i will make sure to donate :)
Yeah, I'll support that too! ;)

But it will be cool to repair all the bugs and integrate it with reputation system, then it will be MOTM 100%!

And any chances to run that mod on 3.6.11 or I can upgrade to 3.7.x already? :D

P.S. - what's the news of this mod? Paul, talk to us :) :D

UPDATE `FORUMDBNAME`.`user` SET `default_filter` = '-2' WHERE `user`.`userid` > 0

worked for me

This hack has GREAT potential! See here (http://digg.com/microsoft/Dell_Intel_give_users_what_they_want_to_turn_Windows_off) for an example of how it should work. After someone posts on the forum the reader can 'Rate' his post. They should only be able to vote ONE time. Currently this hack has a big bug in that area :( If enough people give a post a negative rating (pre-set only by the admin) then that post is grayed out and collapsed with the message "This post does not meet board requirements" or a similar message. However, once a post has met the Admins pre-set settings for collapsing, readers can still read the post if they wish by clicking on a link to open it and read it.

Even though this hack has some major bugs we've still nominated it for MOTM because it is a very important hack, and has a lot of potential. :up:

Long time waiting for such great mod! i was developing myself but not done yet!

appreciated a lot, nice mod specially for major forums like me with 4k posts daily which staffs cant review all of threads/posts, in this case members can help us to avoid bad posts/spammers/bla bla bla either reporting them

i would suggest some features:

1. Filter feature is good, but it would be better to have an option to delete posts softly for specified negative rating,
In this case such ugly posts will be deletedet without any moderation action, and it can send PM notice to original poster whom posts deleted
We can have both options together

2. Option to set specified usergroups to have more rating power, for example x3 for admins, 2x for smods, and x1 for regular registered members

3. Somewhere to track/search/log rating actions by userid/thread/post in admincp

and so many more idea which i've

I can handle some of this features as CoAuthor if you interest

Thats your idea! It seems a feature to me, not a BUG
im totally agree with author to take some action for specified negative rate
you can set default filter value to some high negative

BTW i think an option to enable/disable filter globaly would be nice either

Excellent mod, but i make something false. i have installed the plugin and edit the templates correctly, but the rating system doesn't show on my site. Have someone a idea what the failure ist?

Same here. It's a pity about the lack of improvment for this addon. Great idea but the realization is all but good.

If I could make a suggestion... Would it be difficult to make negatively rated posts fade more and more with an opacity change as an option over collapsing? I've been looking for a mod like this. An example would be engadget.com comments (posted screenshots here to see what I mean http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=199522)

...make negatively rated posts fade more and more with an opacity ...

I've created a similar mod and I did try the opacity idea but decided not to use it as it made the thread less readable.

Hi all,

I have just installed vbulletin and this is the first plugin/product that I have tried to install. It game me a bunch of options that I was not expecting and that I haven't seen in any literature anywhere. It asked me for product ID etc, but I couldn't find any refenence to a product ID or even having to have one, when I check out the Vbulletin install manual.

Anyway, it seemed to install but it isn't in my "options" panel, or a least I can't find it. I think maybe the product ID needs to be acurate. Can someone explain to me what the product ID is or give me any other clues as to why it doesn't seem to be working?

Is there some general mistakes that people tend to make, that I might have done.

nice mod, but I use OLD postbit showup and wish to do 2 things:

1. move icons next to post title
2. hide (collapse) post completly with user avatar, quote and other buttons...

does anyone made it?
