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, Hippy, and Seven Skins have all 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.

AND/OR

Seven Skins has one in this post.


- Original File Specs: post_thanks_7_82.zip (26.4 KB, 24844 downloads) - Original file removed, replaced with patched files including search fix (some admins noticed hackers attempting to use outdated code to exploit search in attempt to gain administrator password or similar).
- There are five total patched versions available, some with and without the search fix - I've replaced the main file with the patched versions... please be sure to download and install the correct version, the main mod post contains links to additional information and patched files!
- 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

Thx for this mod.

You should separate these two phrases: 'Thanks' and 'Thanks'; the first means "Thank you" and the second one means "Number of Thanks". But you use "Thanks" as button title and also as number of thanks which used in postbit information. These two phrase should be translated to two separate phrase in other languages.

This is a great hack. Thanks very much.

But the Thank You button (the hand icon) has suddenly disappeared on all posts. For posts already thanked the Thanks are still visible i.e. "The following users say....". The "Thanked x times in x Posts" is also still there. But the button is gone so nobody can thank anyone any more.

vB 4.0.7 and I have no other plugins. I've made no recent changes via the adminCP. The button was there yesterday and gone today.

Any suggestions for where I could start looking for the problem? Thanks in advance.

I am using version 4.06
I get this warning in my admincp

Warning: Unknown: Unable to allocate memory for pool. in Unknown on line 0

Warning: require_once() [function.require-once]: Unable to allocate memory for pool. in [path]/admincp/options.php on line 36

Warning: require_once() [function.require-once]: Unable to allocate memory for pool. in [path]/admincp/options.php on line 63

Warning: require_once() [function.require-once]: Unable to allocate memory for pool. in [path]/admincp/options.php on line 1071

Anybody had this error as well ?

Guess a false alarm , after a refresh it is gone

This is one of the best mods of all times but still lacks of 1 major feature :
Just like facebook it could have a notification system which notifies a user when he's thanked , and when visited that nitofication it dont show up any more

I have one user who keeps on thanking people by accident...anyone else had this? She insists she didn't click and now she's thanking people she didn't want to.

Hi Guys,

I know this project has been pretty much abandoned by the author but I'm hoping someone will be able to help.

I've been checking through my error_log for something completely different and noticed that 90% of the log is to do with a file missing from this addon!

The filename is : /clientscript/post_thanks2.js

It does not exist in this product as I've checked, is there anyway of stopping this addon from trying to call/load it?!

Thanks

If you FTP in and check your error_logs file then it should be there.

Something like this:

[Tue Aug 10 06:33:58 2010] [error] [client 78.105.xx.xxx] File does not exist: /web/guide/public_html/forum/clientscript/post_thanks2.js, referer: http://www.mysite.com/forum/general/36732-test-url.html
