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.

I upgraded to 4.2.1 yesterday with no issues.

I am not using VB Optimise though which line 199 appears to refer to in your error.

Yeah it appears hat vb optimise interferes with this plugin. I disabled vb optimise and it works fine.

Be sure you're running the latest version of vB Optimise. You can also turn off the integration via the vBulletin Options so you don't have to disable vB Optimise.

How can I stop the links in the tab from opening in a new window? For example this variable dbtech_thanks_x_clicked_y_for_z_post_a contains {3} which is a link to the post the person Liked, and it opens in a new window with target="_blank". The profile links also have target blank and I want to remove them. Thank you for any assistance.

Advanced Post Thanks / Like v3.1.2
Fix: Choosing the new "Compact" display style now properly displays button click count for posts further down the page

Search for target= in /dbtech/thanks/includes/class_core.php

Please note that file edits are not supported and you may be asked to restore the original files if something goes wrong.

Additionally, removing the target="_blank" decreases the user friendliness of the feature as it means people will have to click the Back button and find the post again when they want to go back to the thread - it's not advised to remove this code for this reason.

Have you checked the button permissions in the Manage Buttons interface?

on the profile page the line looks like this:

removing "clear:both;" within dbtech_thanks_compat.css fixed the problem

I removed target="_blank" or changed it to target="_top" but it still behaves the same. I don't know if it because of template caching but I cleared caches. I have the newest paid Pro version if it matters. Sorry, it is easier to post here than on your forum.

Have you thought about updating the mod's description to include the new vbseo likes importing tool? I saw someone asking that question on your site and wondered why until I realized it was absent from your description. Only Abe's Thanks are referenced:

I have 3.0.3 installed and am about to upgrade now.

I have around 500 not found errors in my webmaster tools full of these
vbb/post_thanks.php?do=findthanks&u=3168
from various member profiles. I did previously have Abes post thank you hack installed until I installed yours last year.

Is this fixable? will the upgrade fix it?

Thank you for a great mod, everyone really likes the like button
