What it is: Advanced Thanks/Like mod is designed to cut down on spam and increase useful content in your forum by using a peer encouragement system - users thank/like each others posts, which can give them access to attachements, post content etc, as well as encourage the thanked person to post more great content.

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.

Sorry, I don't understand what you're asking

Can you re-phrase, please?

Hi DragonByte Tech,

I was wondering if you could tell me how I might be able to trigger the action of the thank you button from another plug-in? In other words I would like to have the thank you get added when a user clicks "yes" using the Helpful Answers plug-in.

The code that that is inside that plug-ins template is:


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



and obviously the DragonByte Thank You code is:


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



~ any help would be appeciated!

You can look at the way the code in the /dbtech/thanks/contenttypes files work - if you call the /dbtech/thanks/contenttypes/post/save.php file manually in the helpfulanswers.php file and set the required $_POST variables you should be able to get it working

Hi Fillip,

Thanks for the quick reply - I actually have no idea how to do that, and was hoping it was not too complicated. I'm not sure what you mean by 'call the /dbtech/thanks/contenttypes/post/save.php' manually and set the required $_POST variables. If there's any code examples that you might know of floating around that might help in this circumstance that would great; I appreciate the tips.

If it would be easier to call the other plug-in from the Thank You plug-in I could do that too, although I imagine it would be the same process more or less to implement?

There's no simple API available for this mod so hands would have to get dirty I'm afraid

I'm having trouble liking posts that were created via RSS import. Is this my mistake or a bug?

We've never tested it with RSS imported posts to be honest. Check the database (the "post" table) to see if there's any difference between a post that was imported and made manually.

Great mod. Is there any way of removing the stat bar in the postbit?
