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
  • Places all Thanks into one small box

I want to display the "Thanks"-Button next to the "Reply"-Button in Showthread, anybody know how to do this?

And another Suggestion: Is there a way to sort threads by thanks in Forumdisplay? That would be great!

because I really like this mod.
I noticed this occurred when users where part of 2 Usergroups 1 primary and one secondary. (fortunately i only have 20 users like this)

i went into each of these users and set the SHOW USER GROUP under the main usergroup to default. this solved the issue on my board.

seems to be happening to random users now regardless of Usergroup.

anyone find a solution to the REFRESH problem?

After Years using both (Thanks and Groan) i have now uninstalled both of them.

In fact for me and a lot of other Admins it makes no sence to use the Post Thanks Hack without the Groan Hack and Groan was not updated for a long Time now.

I have send some PMs about this to Abe1 and everytime i get the same Answer that he will updated the Groan Hack soon. But nothing happens .....
