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

I've tried Command Line, PHP, and direct to server and I always get the same error, it always occurs when the database gets to the post_thanks table.

Check your AdminCp.

This option is already available.

Allow User to thank them self?
Enabling this to 'yes' will allow your users to thank their own posts.

Has anybody encountered this problem:

One of my members pointed out today that a post is showing one member name that has thanked it, but in the title of the thanks box it says that it has been thanked twice.

Just incase I have run the recounters and this hasn't made any difference.

Hey when I click on Post Thanks Settings,
it takes me to /options.php?do=optionsdogroup=post_thanks which is basicly blank.

Isn't it supposed to take me to /options.php?do=options&dogroup=post_thanks instead of /options.php?do=optionsdogroup=post_thanks?

The "Thanked X times in X posts" isnt showing up on my postbit_legacy, probably due to custom themes. Is there something i can add manually to have it show?

I also have quite a big problem...

Although the hack has been working fine until now, we had a few users join who were giving each other a large amount of thanks to bump their numbers up (I now have imited max thanks per day..)

But I reset the 'thanks given' by one of the users, and then reset all of the counters

but the thanks number of 201 still remains for this user and the one user he had been thanking??

has anyone else had this>?

Running 3.7.3 patch level 1

How can I fix it asap please?

thanks

ok

Well I had to go to the post_thanks database table and also the user one

and manually delete the thanks.

It does not work from the admin panel on the version stated above

Well hopefully someone can find a fix for this, as I have re ran all the counters, and this user still has his thanks count messed up http://www.gamerzneeds.net/forums/members/_master_.html I even re ran them all again, but it still didnt fix it.

Any possibility to recount reputation after I enable post_thanks_reputation? We got Post Thank You running since years and had tons of postings...

I did not find any option in maintenance/recount.

I get this msg :

, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:

Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.

and this is how url look like:

http://www.domain.com/forums/post_th...417ddfa9197fb4

i not part of a ban group or a second group .

can this be update to allow by usergroup to correct this problem?

how i can fix this?

thanks
