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 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.

For some odd reason this plug in has made it to where the profiles don't appear at all on the mobile theme. The theme has never been tweaked so not sure why this would happen.

Hello! First of all, thanks for the great plugin. I'm using the latest (Lite) version currently.
Everything is working as intended. (I believe)

However, I was unaware I was using the (Pro) version before. I have made a couple new themes, and re-uploaded the plugin to fix some issues I was having. Which have been fixed, but were obviously reverted to (Lite) as I used this post's xml.

Is there any way I can check the status of the Pro version I have had? It would have been a couple years ago that I bought it.. D:

As I would like to move where the Like button shows up, as well as the ability to remove a like that you have given.

Thanks in advance for any help.
