View Full Version : New Posting Features - [DBTech] Advanced Post Thanks / Like v3 (vB5) [AJAX]


DragonByte Tech
22 Oct 2012, 00:01
What it is: Advanced Thanks/Like mod is designed to cut down on spam and increase useful content in your forum by using a peer encouragement system - users thank/like each others posts, which can encourage the thanked person to post more great content.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Translations available @ our forum (http://www.dragonbyte-tech.com/f91/).

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Priority support & Product Demos available at: http://www.dragonbyte-tech.com/forum.php

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

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.

Admin Permissions: Control things such as who can click buttons, require button clicks, what shows in postbit, what options can run concurrently, per forum permisions etc.

Notifications: Receive alerts when a member clicked on one of the buttons for one of your posts.


Feature List: Pro

Infinite Buttons: Ability to create new buttons to press! No longer do you need to be limited by Thanks / Like / Dislike.

User Postbit Config: Lets users decide what postbit stats they want to see.

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: Lite

Require a Button Click: Allows you to hide the content of a post, or hie an attachment, until the person clicks a button on the post.

Statistics: Shows the top 5 people for; Giving / Receiving button clicks.

Import Thanks: Import script to import "thanks" from Abe's [AJAX] Post Thank You Hack on vBulletin.org. It will work with both vB3 (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=165673) and vB4 (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=231666) versions of this mod.


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? Colour thresholds let you change the colour of posts depending on how many clicks of a button they receive. Members can now see at a glance whether or not a post is helpful, interesting or pointless.

This looks tons better than the vb3/4 version. Hope the look can be back ported :)

DragonByte Tech
22 Oct 2012, 14:36
We currently have no plans to backport the looks due to the fact that the Thanks Bar is deeply integrated into the functionality of the old version, but that's not to say plans won't change :)

Much nicer then an easy to abuse reputation system.

But, I notice that regardless of what buttons are active, all the stats are still shown under the usernames in posts.
I only want to use the Like button on my forum so disabled the Dislike and Thanks buttons, but it still shows their stats.

DragonByte Tech
08 Mar 2013, 14:03
I'll look into that for a bugfix update, thanks :)

I'll be going through our vB5 versions to ensure compatibility with the Gold version over the course of the upcoming week :)

In your Readme file you have:

3. In AdminCP -> Plugins & Products -> Manage Products -> Add/Import Product
in the "OR import the XML file from your server" put

./core/packages/dbtechthanks/xml/product_dbtechthanks.xml

You need to remove the /core, that line should read:

./packages/dbtechthanks/xml/product_dbtechthanks.xml

Happening to me too. I tried a work around, go into phpmyadmin and manually change in the database from 0 to 1 to enable and it still resets itself.

Gonna uninstall until it works again.

Dbtech's are good at updating so just hang in there.

If you re-download the mod from our site and re-install it (uninstall then re-install) it should work as intended :)

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

DragonByte Tech
01 Oct 2013, 17:09
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:
/*======================================================================*\
|| 3. First Time Installation / Upgrade ||
\*======================================================================*/

1. Upload all files from the "upload" folder to your forums directory.

2. CHMOD the following folders to 0777
/core/packages/dbtechthanks/vbactivity_type

3. In AdminCP -> Plugins & Products -> Manage Products -> Add/Import Product
in the "OR import the XML file from your server" put

./packages/dbtechthanks/xml/product_dbtechthanks.xml

4. Configure your Usergroup settings by clicking "Manage Buttons" under
"DBTech - Post Thanks" in your AdminCP navigation menu, then
editing each button and setting your usergroup permissions from there.

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.

DragonByte Tech

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.

How can I do a clean uninstall of this? The install of the Lite version hung and is causing "There is a serious error and the page cannot be rendered" error with the site. I disabled hooks and loaded admin console to uninstall the mod and that hung as well but removed traces if it from the admin console. Site is still reporting error, is there a SQL query that would remove it cleanly from the database?

No Problem Fillip.
It's not a huge issue.

I did notice another user had the same issue last not, but when I went back later it all appeared OK.

Hey Fillip, I know it's obvious that vB5 isn't a priority for you, but many of us really like your stuff and would love to use it. I'd happily pay full price for many of your mods if they actually worked properly with vB5.

Any plans to spend any time on the vB5 stuff? I think there may be more money in it for you than you think.

Hello Dragonbyte,

Hoping you will pull through with a 5.1.4 release.

I do not plan on upgrading after this one but I must say that this last release is the one many are switching to because of the 3 column layout and would be worth your time.

Brad Padgett
29 Nov 2014, 14:44
Hey Dragonbyte again,

I just wanted to say great job. I installed it without any issue and everything is working perfect on Vbulletin 5.1.4

It's successful even with a version this high. Your expert coding will pay off.

Keep it up and let me know if you plan on making a higher release for safe measure.

Thanks.

I posted on their main forum they said it doesn't work with 5.1.7 and there not looking at it.This is not true. We will absolutely be looking at updating this modification to work with vB 5.1.7.

That being said, unfortunately vB5 version updates sometimes take a lot of time, and the percentage of our customers running vB5 is very small, in comparison to vB4 or even vB3. This means that it's harder for us to allocate resources to provide an update for our vB5 mods as opposed to developing new features for the vB3/vB4 versions or indeed other projects.

For this reason, until vB5 is stable enough that these breaking changes do not frequently happen, all our vB5 mods will remain in Alpha status.

Under no circumstances does this mean we are abandoning vB5 or that we do not intend to support newer vB5 versions, it just means that you cannot upgrade vB5 and expect all modifications to work out of the box.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Haiiii..

I wanna ask about Thanks - Feed. I bought the pro version.
I supposed to use it as Top Like report for some contest.
The contest was input in comment post.
If like button clicked in comment post it will appear as 'No Title'. We don't know whats clicked but just know who click the like button.

We need to know what was clicked, such as the title of the post/ comment or the username.

One thing that made me curious is one of our user's seems have title and appear in Thanks-Feed. I try how it can be happen but I'm not found it.

Can you help me explain how to make the title in comment that would appear in Thanks Feed?

I wait for your feedback soon. Thanks before.

So... Does this not work with 5.1.7? I tried installing it and got an error partially through the installation.

It says

"That action could not be completed. Please try again, and if this occurs again please contact the system administrator and tell them how you got this message."

Right after this part.

Is this still being supported? Any chance you'll take suggestions on improvements to the system that can be ported to all the versions for VB3, 4, and 5?

If so...

1. There should be an option to allow the user to type a comment for a like or a dislike. Maybe it can appear on their profile page like a visitor message? Or maybe when you hover over the like or dislike number on the post it can display the names of those who liked/disliked it and hovering over the name can display their comment.

2. An option to limit the amount or likes/dislikes that be given per day. I just managed to get this implemented on VB 5.1.9 and within an hour somebody had went around and gave over 150 dislikes... A lot to the same users. It kind of ruins the value of the system when there's no option for limiting it.

3. Allow the options "given/recieved" to be view able on the profile under their information.(location and such) This would allow for the posbit to be uncluttered some and still allow members to view the information.

4. I don't know if "notifications" exist in VB3 and VB4 like they do in VB5. But in VB5, it's a bit annoying that the "notification" for likes/dislikes is done through a personal message (that you can't customize?) instead of an actual notification that you can dismiss easily. And the option to allow members to disables these notifications altogether would definitely be nice.

This looks like a pretty nifty little mod and a missing feature in vB5 ... I just took the chance and installed this on 5.2.1 and lo and behold it seems to be working, no errors or nothing ... But as someone mentioned 2 posts up, the buttons are not showing up in the post view. However we can see everything from "Thanks, Likes, Dislikes Received, etc..." But I suppose what good is that if no one can see the actual like, dislike buttons.

And also as with all of your other mods @DragonByte Tech the admincp settings are out of whack and do not save ... we keep getting hit with a message that goes something like this -> "Invalid Page URL. If this is an error and the page should exist, please contact the system administrator and tell them how you got this message."

Anyway, I realize you are busy B with other projects, and this is the least of your concern or priority. But, a very nice mod idea nonetheless.

Hello Fillip,

A couple of things. Throughout the line of dragonbyte's products, when cache template as files is enabled, multiple errors display.

Secondly, with this specific mod that I just tried to install, the post bit is too large to fit in its area. Is there a way to turn off the additional post bit information? I take it this is only a pro option?

You can edit each button and turn off the Given and Received stats in postbit - once that has been done for every button, the menu should disappear.

I installed but disabled it for now. Running vb 5.2.1 None of the buttons work, although they do appear, and this is I assume because no buttons are enabled in the "DBTech - Post Thanks" control panel. When I go in to edit to make the buttons work for selected (or any, or all) user groups, when I go to save the settings, after a while I just get the Invalid Page URL error and nothing is saved, so the mod doesn't work at all for me.

Same deal with your other mod vbshout - unable to edit any control panel settings, and when try to save, get the invalid page URL error.

Same here mdawg,

I disabled it, as many errors were showing up. Some of the errors resulted from having enabled cache in styles, when cached as files, multiple errors displayed on the webpage. In the Admincp, multiple errors too, like being redirected to the main home page when clicking an admincp option.

Hey guys, Just upgraded our forum to this latest vb5 (o dear) and needed a thanks/like product. This seems perfect and the install goes smoothly, but when I go to edit a button and try and make it "active" I click save, and it just directs off to a page cannot be found page....

So this is from within vb admin, I click edit on "thanks" and click to make it active, click save, and have a page cannot be found page.

Version 5.2.1 - any ideas?

Yo mdawg, nice to see you got this working man ;)

Hey I just got a quick question for you and for anyone else who has installed this update working on 5.2.1 -- so is it just me or do the Likes (Received) not go up incrementally after each like has been given?

I've found myself having to go into the admin settings of this mod and constantly update the stats as that seems to bring the total # of "likes" back to where they should be ... but then again once someone has hit the "like" button the # gets reset right back to 1 likes received and it just stays there ... what gives? Any ideas? Kind of a pain having to constantly go into the admin settings and manually update everything over and over again.

Not entirely sure what the deal is there, but just wondering if anyone else is experiencing this issue or if it is just me?

Interestingly enough the Likes (Given) stat does not have this problem at all and increases on each click and does not reset back to 1 ... only Likes (Received)? Anyone else experiencing this issue?

Big Bear - yes, I have this exact same issue. I received a bunch of thanks / likes today (18 PMs in my inbox to confirm) and my count remained at 1 thank / 1 like.

I went into DB Tech - Post Thanks / Maintenance / Recalculate
and clicked it - and ended up on an INVALID URL
and then when I checked back at the forum, my Thanks received and likes received still stuck at 1.

Then I went back and tried to first click CLEAN UP, which did not end up on an invalid url so I suppose it did something. Then I repeated the RECALCULATE process, still ended up on an invalid URL, but this time yes! the count of thanks / likes was updated to 10.

Then a little later someone else clicked and gave me another thanks + like. I got the two PMs. Again my count was stuck at 10. This time just clicking the RECALCULATE alone did the job (got me to 11) - but still ended up on an invalid URL.

So yes, this mod still does not work.

bigbear Dragon will advise us. How about this issue? bigbear are you experiencing this issue too:

When I look at statistics of my username (which I am usergroup admin) next to a post, it shows the 11 thanks received 11 likes received,

but when I look at my statistics within a PM just received today, I see 0 0 0 0 for everything.

In other words the mod is showing different statistics for a user depending on whether you are viewing the stats within a thread at the forum, or within a PM thread. At least this is the way it is happening at this moment for me.

A hotfix for the issue of clicking buttons corrupting the statistics have been added to the download here: http://www.dragonbyte-tech.com/store/product/210-advanced-post-thanks-like-vb5-beta/

You will need to run the maintenance action to re-count the clicks before it'll be fully working.

Yes this fix does address those issues.

I still have an uneasy feeling that this mod somehow slows down the database such that it takes a long time to access threads because of it, and also leads to "MySQL server has gone away" errors.

MySQL Error : MySQL server has gone away

I will leave the mod running for now, but this is just the impression I get. Maybe I am wrong.

Hmm, that is interesting mdawg thx for the heads up there ... I'll have to monitor my board to see if I get the same problem there as you since you and I are pretty much seeing the same things as far as this mod is concerned ... however I have not personally gotten that particular database error yet though ... not before nor after I applied this most recent mod update ... also I can't say i'm seeing any particular slow down on accessing the threads ... but then again my board is not highly active.

I'll let you know if I encounter similar issues, but all looks to be running fine on my end for now ... fingers crossed as I really dig this mod and would hate to have to disable for any reason.

I still have an uneasy feeling that this mod somehow slows down the database such that it takes a long time to access threads because of it, and also leads to "MySQL server has gone away" errors.The cause for MySQL has gone away errors is that your server is not configured correctly, or not powerful enough, to handle your current traffic.

This manual entry will tell you more information about the error: http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.7/en/gone-away.html

Most commonly it's the timeout settings referred to on that page that's the cause, so if this is an ongoing problem I would recommend looking into those first and foremost.

At my forum the thank you count has reverted to 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 for everything, on some threads, and shows as 2 / 12 / 1 / 12 / 0 / 0 on another thread, for the same user.

It seems that on old threads the count is correct; on new threads remains at 0.

I sent you a PM now on this too. Thanks.

As I PM'ed you the issue continues and is quite odd. I sent you the screen shots. Within for example a given PM thread or post thread the first PM/post might show 0 0 0 0 0 0 for a user, and then subsequent threads / posts will show the correct count, of say, 2 12 1 12 0 0 for that exact same user. In other words, different counts are displayed for the same user within the same thread.

It seems like the FIRST post of a PM thread definitely shows nothing but 0 0 0 0 0 0 for the user, in other words, the first post on a PM thread shows incorrect values.

Has anyone else experienced this? Check closely please.

I have the same problem. And, in the profile options when a thank is received it sometimes does not list the actual thread, but says so and so has "liked" your post on this "node". That and the constant emails if notifications only is checked made me disable this product, the pro version I purchased.

Fillip, I must regrettably say that I have lost confidence in Dragonbyte products and support in resolving issues and creating a bug free product for Vb 5.

Filip, when someone receives a thanks should it appear in the notification like hitting the stock vbulletin like button?

As far as the other issue, what had appeared after someone thanked was a count of zero zero zero across the board. If I am not wrong this was the issue being reported by another?

I regret having posted this issue in this board. Thank you for taking a look at the issues that I was having and resolving them today.

I have tried to replicate this issue @ your site using the same testing methodology reported by the other user. I tried posting a new thread, and I tried replying to a thread. Both actions presented the correct thanks/like count in the postbit (after re-enabling the display for one of your buttons).

I forgot to mention in my previous posts; I saw the issue about the blank forum topics, my guess is that it's to do with deleted content. I updated the SQL query for fetching new entries accordingly.

Hello Fillip,

I am having another issue that I just noticed. When I take my forum offline I get a soft error, a white page that says software error when any dragonbyte product is enabled. If I disable both the info panels and thanks product the board goes offline without error displaying the board is offline.

When I turn my forum off anyone (not logged in) coming to the forum gets this error:


A System Error has occured.

The software is experiencing a systems error.

You should attempt to repeat your last action. If this error occurs again, please contact the site administrator.


Which I assume is related to this Dragonbytes software.

Well the issue isn't so much for the mods to run, but that that weird error shows instead of simply "Forums Closed for Maintenance" / "Forums Offline" etc. The weird error shows because of your mods.

---

I am trying to track down database errors (My SQL Server has gone away)...Do your mods, the ones I have on my vb5 forum - do they use GET requests for API calls ?

Those would be the vBShout v6 (vB5) [AJAX] and the Advanced Post Thanks / Like v3 (vB5) [AJAX] mods.

Do they use GET requests?

Enable debug mode (http://vbmods.rocks/blogs/vbulletin-5-tips-and-tricks/532-how-to-enable-debug-mode-in-vbulletin-5-for-selected-ip-addresses-only) to see the detailed PHP error. From there you would know what the issue is and possibly what is causing the error.

We've tried everything to track down the cause.

As part of this debugging process, I just need to know if these two apps use GET requests for API calls?

You could inspect in the browser dev tools (F12) Network tab and observe the dbtech ajax calls. I don't know the AJAX URLs are for the calls but I guess it will be obvious and you could easily identify it.

DragonByte Tech
30 Sep 2016, 22:36
API calls are not performed using AJAX, they are performed using the {vb:data} template tag which is then resolved into a PHP function call during run-time.

Just installed on 5.2.4 and it was a clean install.

Tested each button and they record and display in the postbit as described.

The 5.2.4 instance was a clean install not an upgraded board database.

Can't find this option in Lite: Require a Button Click: Allows you to hide the content of a post, or hie an attachment, until the person clicks a button on the post.
The Pro version = Advanced Post Thanks / Like (vB5) [Beta] for 84.95$? If yes and it work with 5.4 i will buy it! Great!

Is this lite version complete? By that I mean as a "Lite" modification it can function on it's own entirely without use of the pro mod or files? I'm not sure but something seems amiss here...

The reason I'm asking is, in the readme.txt file it states:

/*======================================================================*\
|| 3. First Time Installation / Upgrade ||
\*======================================================================*/

1. Upload all files from the "upload" folder to your forums directory.

2. CHMOD the following folders to 0777
/core/packages/dbtechthanks/vbactivity_type

3. In AdminCP -> Plugins & Products -> Manage Products -> Add/Import Product
in the "OR import the XML file from your server" put

./packages/dbtechthanks/xml/product_dbtechthanks.xml

4. Configure your Usergroup settings by clicking "Manage Buttons" under
"DBTech - Post Thanks" in your AdminCP navigation menu, then
editing each button and setting your usergroup permissions from there.

However the folder and .xml file are not present in the current .zip file you have uploaded here to vbulletin.org, I see the last time this was updated was on May 7th of this year, I believe someone forgot to include all the required files for the "Lite" version in the new .zip file will you please check this and correct? Thanks :D

The zip file is correct and all files are present & accounted for.

https://www.vbulletin.org/forum/external/2018/05/4.png

As you can see, the folder and XML file is indeed present.

Whether the instructions work in the latest version of vB5, I can't say, as whether the "core" part of the folder is needed for the vB5 AdminCP to work as intended seemed to yoyo back and forth between versions the last time I looked at vB5.

Fillip,

It appears my download wasn't complete (rare that happens but it did) after I re-downloaded the .zip file just now the folder is present, I extracted to a different location to compare and low and behold the one from just the other night is missing the folder so perhaps something was amiss on my end at said time of download!

Thanks for confirming :D.
