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
  • Separate looks for postbit and postbit_legacy

I am running a new board v. 3.6.8. The button isn't showing on either postbits. I did confirm that the templates had the correct code via the instructions.

Any idea on what I did wrong?
Thanks in advance.

I don't know ....

I just checked in AdminCP and at the top is says:

You are currently running vBulletin version 3.6.7 PL1.
If there's anything (a test PHP script etc) that you'd like me to run and give you results on, I'd be happy to do so.

Should I run any (or all) of those counter reset routines in the AdminCp for your mod, after I altered that plug-in?

Thanks for your help...

Regards,
Badger

Bitfield Collision: credits_cantearn = prefixrequired

Is it because I am using VB Credits?

Hello,

I would like to suggest to add disable/enable "Find All Thanked Posts"/"Find All Posts Thanked" functions in "Post Thanks Settings"
This "Find Thanks Posts" search function in User Profiles slows down my forums.
Well, I can edit two "post thanks memberinfo" templates but disable function in "Post Thanks Settings" would be more comfortable.

Thank you

I want to know that.

Is it possible to edit the post bit myself rather than automatic edit?

I only want to know as How many times user has been thanked in post bit rather this and also the one "How many he thanked in how many posts"

Plus it shows up under the Mood feature. I want to show where I want to. I could not any way to turn off the automatic editing of postbit template. Any help please.

Hi,

Just upgraded it from 5.3 to 7.2, Suddenly the thanks option is not appearing on some of the threads anymore. Everthing looks just fine with correct thanked and thanks info. but its not showing the thanks button/option anymore.

ALSO everything is showing double like:

Posts: 155
Thanks: 21
Thanked 15 Times in 10 Posts
Thanks: 21
Thanked 15 Times in 10 Posts

what have i done wrong?

i am running 3.6.8 patch level 2

thanks for the advice in advance

one of my mods found that if they copy the thanks link for a given post and put it in an image tag in the thread, then anyone who views the thread will automatically thank that post.

as a bypass for now I have just added post_thanks.php as a censored word so it gets blocked from posts.
