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Original file removed, replaced with patched files including search fix (some admins noticed hackers attempting to use outdated code to exploit search in attempt to gain administrator password or similar).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
  • Places all Thanks into one small box
  • Uses only ONE query every time you view a showthread page!
  • Users can't thank twice
  • Option to not allow users to thank their own post

  • Counts how many thanks a post gets
  • Shows how many thanks a user gave in every post of his
  • Shows how many thanks a user gave in profile
  • Shows how many thanks a user got
  • Shows how many posts or a user are thanked
  • Shows info in profile
  • Search for a users thanked posts
  • 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

  • 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

Possible / easy to do? Or is there another hack that would be better suited?
That would be the Groan hack but it hasn't been updated to 4.x.

I see in the description that it says you can search for a users' thanked posts - how do you do that?

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 have a problem similar to this, using 4.0.8; there Thank button is nowhere to be found. Have already tried reinstalling and enabling the product several times; nothing is showing up, not even the PostBit information

Anybody able to show me the actual code for this hack and the templates that they should be used in, so I can manually input it?

This has happened to me as well, the thanks button has gone. Looked all over for it and can't see the problem.

Strange... It's not working for me in 4.1 PL2.

I recently upgraded the forum from 3.8.6 to 4.1.0 PL2. While attempting a fresh install of iTrader I get the folllowing error:

The following dependencies were not met:

1. This product is not compatible with version 4.1.0 of vBulletin. (Compatible starting with 4.0.0 beta 4 / Incompatible with 4.1.0 alpha 1 and greater)

Has anyone else attempted to install after you upgraded the forum to 4.1.x?



EDIT:

It installed properly after editing the 10th line in product-post_thanks.xml as follows:

Find this code:

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


Replace with this:

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

Abe does mention in his initial post 'vB Version: 4.0.x' but you can bypass this by editing the xml at the beginning there will be a version number, just change it.
