Post Thank You Hack 7.7


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

This worked for me.
The only issue I have is the "Show all thanked threads" doesn't work. It never loads. I have 40 thousand total threads. Would that make a difference?

Thanks, this works great for me. Had to edit it a bit to suit my needs but the idea was good.

One feature that it could use that would really make it great is to detect if a user posts "thnx" "thx" "thanks" "thank you" etc. and automatically convert that into a thank you instead of allowing the post!
I might create that myself if it doesn't already exist.

For people wanting to change the phrases:

Goto the Phrase Manager -> Search Phrases -> "thanked"
post_thanks_times_posts

The standard phrase is: Thanked {1} Times in {2} Posts

If you want to remove the Thanked: X in X posts... replace the phrase with: Thank: {1}

What this will do is display

Thanks: X

Looks much better in my opinion.

Now to post JUST the Thanks part in the post bit and none of the other garbage here is the code below.


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

I attached a screen shot. The thanks are labeled "treats" on my forum.
Sorry this is such an old post...but where do I add this code? I want it to look like that, next to the posts. I changed the phrase and it still shows everything and I have no idea how to just show the 'thanks' and then move it up near the posts...any help would be great

Thanks

I had this, and put a workaround in it.

in

/forums/includes/xml/cpnav_post_thanks.xml

find :

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

replace with :


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

its all working for me now
