Post Groan Hack 3.3


About this hack:
This hack was requested by users who like my "Post Thank You Hack". Both can run together on the same forum.

This hack adds a "groan" button to all posts. Any user can "groan" at a post. This will reduce the amount of "junk" posts your forum gets.

Features:
  • Uses vBulletin easy Product installer/updater/uninstaller
  • Uses AJAX technology so your users don't have to refresh when they groan at a post.
  • Places an easy to use button next to the edit button
  • Separate looks for postbit and postbit_legacy
  • Places all Groans into one small box
  • Uses only ONE query every time you view a showthread page!
  • Users can't groan twice
  • Guests don't see 'groan' button
  • Counts how many groans a user gives
  • Counts how many groans a post gets
  • Shows how many groans a user gave in every post of his
  • Shows how many groans a user gave in profile
  • Shows how many groans a user got
  • Shows info in profile
  • Search for a users groaned at posts
  • Search for all groaned at posts
  • Administrator can remove all Groans from a single post
  • Users can remove their own Groans (Option to turn it off)
  • Turn on and off hack totally
  • Turn on and off hack for only some forums
  • Option to turn off hack view of date all forums
  • Option to integrate hack with Post Thanks Hack
  • Ban Usergroups
  • Ban Users
  • Uses Phrases

I got this requested on my site only the other day, but they wanted to call it the sucks button lol, so I said no to that idea, however now that you have called it the groan button, and maybe I'll only let certain usergroups use it, I think it is a fantastic idea.

Well done.

I think what he meant was, scrap this thread and the thanks thread, and combine them into one hack.

and as an option in the admincp, you have enable/disable thanks .... enable/disable groan etc. so that way, updating will be a lot easier.

If you would do this, it would be ideal for most people I feel.

It would be a lot of extra plug-in code for users who only want post thanks hack. Post Thanks Hack is a lot more popular and I dont want them to be bothered with a lot more code.

Very nice! Would be even better with an exemption feature so you can add usergroups that can't be groaned at - eg, admins.

Re: [AJAX] Post Groan Hack

I was thinking about this groan hack as a collaborative moderation tool

1. After x-groans post will be hidden (only "show" link will replace the post).
or
2. post will be deleted (pretty hard option)
or
3. user will get PM to auto-censore-delete his post, or he might just check his groaned-posts and do it voluntarily (I do not have big expectations here)

BUT look what a GREAT addition was made to this add-on here:
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showp...6&postcount=14
-----------------------------------

Abe1, any chance to turn this add-on to collaborative-moderation tool?
It will do huge work for any big forum .-)

Hello!

I've been toying with this and your thank you to make it fit my board a bit more. I don't want to get people mad at each other for a groan, however I think it's a nice tool if it could be done without the person knowing who groaned.

Anyway my question. Do you know how I would just put that there are X amount of groans for a post in the postbit instead of Name (date)? I didn't put it in the postbit as of right now so that they can't see who did it. LOL But it'd be nice for those posts you'd like to groan on without really getting involved.

Thanks!

Thanks Abe. I installed it here www.mobmototb.com
The fact that I don't have buttons for my style is disappointing.
Any ideas?
