Importer from Abe's Thanks mod (vB3 / vB4) and vBSEO "Likes" now available in Lite version!



Major Features: 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.

Collapsable 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. The postbit is also collapsable.

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.

Reputation: Add / Remove Reputation for each of your button clicks.

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

Import Thanks: Import script to import "thanks" from Abe's [AJAX] Post Thank You Hack on vBulletin.org. It will work with both vB3 and vB4 versions of this mod.

Import Likes: Import script to import "likes" from vBSEO.


Major Features: Pro

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

Auto Collapse Posts: Collapses a post so it doesnt show up by using a formulae for button clicks of your choosing.

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.

Integrated Controls: You can now integrate the button clicking controls into the post footer, like many of you requested.

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.

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.

Hello.
Yes, this night I go to view this servers logs, I need to filter because in the last days I have migrated from the server and I had to make adjustments in the new one (I assume I will have errors that have nothing to do with it).
Filter and post results.

Hi,
First of all, thank you for this mod, it's a great one and just what I looked for!

While testing things in my site I've faced some very wired issue, when opening the dropdown (clicking on username) in the usernote.php page, all the ids in the links are of the user that those notes are of him, so all the actions are applying to him and not to the note's writer.

After some searches and digging I found that the problem is in the "/dbtech/thanks/hooks/statistics.php" file.
The solution is very simple and you can find it in the attached file, all it does is to get the `posterid` column instead of the `userid` column when the script is in notes.php.

Hope it will help you to improve this mod even more,
Eran.

I found it in the file named proxy_access_ssl_log in the logs folder. Maybe your server has different configuration.

The thank and approve dbtech_thanks buttons have stopped working after upgrading the http forum to https.

I also updated the vb4.2.3 forum to vb4.2.5 and I don't know if that could also be the cause.
Can someone give me a hand?

Your best bet is to contact DBTECH directly.

However, changing to https or upgrading should not be an issue to prevent them working.

Try one of these sites to check what isn't converting to SSL:

Yes. I'm using the Lite version on a 4.2.5 forum with SSL without issues.

That will highlight problem links and scripts which are hardcoded http://

The fix isn't usually difficult: even some included core vBulletin scripts may need to be changed but it's just a matter of switching, for example, from http://example.com to //example.com

Also, I can't remember but there may be fixes for vB 4.2.5 listed somewhere in this very long thread that might make a difference.

Fillip
I have a question regarding this [hide] for example, I enabled this and created a thread in my forum with a lot of information and hide some of the information between the [hide] and [/ hide] tag, the problem is that it is hiding even the information outside this tag and I wanted it to hide only what's inside the tag and only show up after the member thanks or approves the topic.
