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.

No that does not work.

I just want the "The Following Users..." text to be smaller.

I am having an odd problem.

I have php being dumped before the header this happens when looking at a thread or with Recounters or Special Actions in admincp. The same thing happens with your groan hack.

Attached is a SS.

This is on 3.7.4PL1

I fixed this issue it looked like an upgrade problem. I started over with the test board and uninstalled the old mod before installing. Of course after removing the DB uninstall code so I wouldn't lose my previous thanks.

I notice by your VB version you are running 3.6.5. This is the 3.7.x & 3.8 version.

Uninstall and use this version here.

Hi,

How can I reduce the size of the text in post_thanks_box_bit ?

This is the code:

Produces this effect, text is smaller (good) but it is broken up into separate lines:

I don't see the button, I see only the "Thanks" letter alone. Where can I edit or what should I edit?

I presume you are referring to my profile. I was in a major car accident and laid up for almost a year and haven't updated in a long time, either way my problem is on my 3.7.4PL1 test board.

I don't know if anyone else noticed this and I just did not see the post in this thread because I sure as hell aint reading 89 pages worth of posts, but since I installed this hack backing up SQL has failed which I hadn't even known until I tried to do it the other night as one of the other site admins was supposed to be doing it weekly and the server owner asked me about it.

I did not take the time to look at the code, but I'm pretty sure based on the SQL fail email that this is your problem, just did not look to see where it's located.


Invalid SQL:
SHOW CREATE TABLE post_thanks;


-If I am the first person to notice this shame on you people for not backing up your sites.-

Well ok I searched the thread and someone else has already asked this question in July, but I didnt see an answer... ?

I back up my database every early morning. I think I have enough thanks issued that if it were a problem it may have come up (3.7M+) What method are you using to back up?
