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Original file removed, replaced with patched files including search fix (some admins noticed hackers attempting to use outdated code to exploit search in attempt to gain administrator password or similar).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.

  • 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

Thank you for this hack.

Is it possible to add a enable/disable-function for the users who don't want to see the "thank-you"postbit ("The Following User Says Thank You to...")?

You should read through the thread to see exactly what the differences are between those 3 versions, and pick the one you feel best suits your needs. Keep in mind you will get limited support whichever version you choose, for reasons given in the product description post.

On a side note: I've noticed your posts here of late, and the difficulties you have been citing...please allow me to recommend you upgrade to vB 4.2.3...you will find most products published in the last several years are geared towards 4.2.x and you *should* find your going will be easier if you upgrade.

Hello all,

I have a question

We have this mod running great on a 3.9.8 forum (atm) and here is what I'd like to do.
I have an off topic category on our forum that I've disabled the Thanks Mod up until now and it's doing exactly what it should.

Okay now I want to enable the Thanks Button but I don't want the thanks to count towards anything. I would just like it to show up in the postbit for the user who posted his/her funny post/thread and received 20 thanks in the.

I don't want it to show anywhere else.
Is this possible, hopefully easy?

Thanks

For some reason, when any user clicks the "Thanks" button to give thanks, they're being redirected to a "You do not have permission to access this page" message (like when trying to view a private forum).

Even though you get redirected to the error page, the thanks does still added to the thanked post.

I can "Remove your thanks" without seeing the error message, however the page does refresh when you click it which I think is strange.

Is there a fix for this, or does anyone have any idea what could be causing it?


edit - I'm using vb 4.2.12 and the most recent version of this hack.
