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Original file removed, replaced with patched files including search fix (some admins noticed hackers attempting to use outdated code to exploit search in attempt to gain administrator password or similar).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
  • Guests don't see 'thanks' button
  • Counts how many thanks a user gives
  • 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
  • Turn on and off hack for only some forums
  • 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
  • Option to turn off hack view of date for specific or all forums

nope, I had this mod before and Staff had an option to delete thanks on the postbit but not anymore. There is an option from the admincp but that will delete all thanks or by user.

I thought this will have an option on the postbit that allow me to delete the thanks I dont want

Since Abe hasn't been online for over a year, I vote that this mod should become "public domain" and be supported by whoever is willing to do so on a non-commercial (free) basis. Abe's name and generous community "Thank-Yous" should be retained.

I'd like to see it be re-released with an up to date version (with all fixes and ported to 4.1.5).

Would the VB.org moderators care to comment on this proposal?

And what should really happen is that a similar functionality should be built into VB!

They won't ever do the "public domain" thing. It requires the author's consent, end of story.

There is no way no how that a mod here ever becomes "public domain" without the author's consent, it's simply not legal- a mod author retains rights to their mods.

You could attempt to contact the mod author and ask he give permission or mark his mod "Re-usable code." I have managed to track down a handful of coders over the years who were happy to give permission to let their old mods live on.

Can anyone here get ahold of the developer and get him to either provide a confirmed stable update or at least allow this addon to be re-usable code?

This is such an incredible, popular and useful addon I'm disappointed to see it abandoned.

Pleaseeee?!

Will my existing thanked posts and everything else that's involved with the first post/thanks hack be lost if I upload the new version? How do I ensure I don't lose any existing thanks data when I upload the new version?
