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Original file removed, replaced with patched files including search fix (some admins noticed hackers attempting to use outdated code to exploit search in attempt to gain administrator password or similar).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!

  • 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 all thanked posts
  • Administrator can remove all Thanks from a single post

Thanks, yeah I did all that already. I just wanted to see what everyone else was using and how it looks, etc. I haven't found anything that fits decent and looks ok.

I made it work only by editing the version lines in the xml file.
I used it back in vb 3.8 and had a lot of thanks given among users already so changing to a new hack meant losing all that data.

Perhaps this has been asked a lot of times but I could not find any solution for it.

I have upgraded my board from 3.8.4 (www.forum.com) to 4.2.2 (www.forum.com/vb4) --> (Vb 5 does not support this hack)
It's a clean install and new database. Using impex I have transferred all of my threads, posts etc. Impex is not solid, so with less effort I managed to set everything straight, except for the amount of thanks per user.

I looked at the table where thank you(s) were stored and I found that reputation has a lot of comments so I exported it and imported it again to the new database. But without any luck sadly.

How can I make a good back-up of my MySQL database so that when I import the amount of thanks are whole again per user. Perhaps there is a different method. Thanks in advance

This hack has Always been a godlike addon to vBulletin.

Ok, n00b question but I installed Advanced Post Thanks / Like v3.1.7 (Lite) and imported it into the AdminCP.

Don't see the Like/Thanks buttons but do see the stats for those.
Am I not seeing b/c I haven't gotten a license?

I'm new to mods so please excuse my ignorance on the matter.

Greg

Quick question to whoever that can answer. One of the members in my forum wishes to delete all of the thanks that he received. I am able to delete thanks posted by a user, but how do I delete "thanked" for a user?

(Pro) Cloud Display Style
Choose the display style for the button clicks block in the postbit.

Full: Displays header, who clicked buttons and the action button rows.
No Header: Displays who clicked buttons and the action button rows.
Compact: Displays the action buttons and how many people clicked each button (no user names).

This does not work for 4.2.? I tried it, installed perfectly into the host files, but then uploaded the XML and it says it is not compatible.
