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

Installed... Redid phrases and image into a "Likes" system instead. So far working well.

I strongly suggest those with bigger boards shut off their forums before installing.

So we had this and the groan hack, and I had to upgrade to the new one and Vbulletin.

The Post Thanks used to appear on top of the Post groan under a post, but since the update it's the other way around and people are whining/confused by it.

anybody know where I would go to switch that?

Maybe go to AdminCp>Plugins & Products>Plugin Manager>Post Thankyou Hack, chose the one called postbit_display_start and change the execution order from 5 to 1 and then click save and see if that makes a difference, maybe do the same with postbit_display_complete

Thanks for your reply. The execution numbers weren't 5 though sadly, and there is no postbit_display_start for thank you, just the groans one ..I tried editing them but that made the display of who groan what disappear.

(Note they are not in the same order though.)

There should be 12 plugins for each mod, I suggest you double check. If you are missing any, re-install the latest version of the thank you hack.

Also I have confirmed changing the execution order of the postbit_display_start plugin does indeed change the order in which is displayed. The one with the lower number will execute first and therefore be on top.

This is strange, I've installed this mod on several sites and never had a problem. Today, I installed it on USHistoryForums.com and I can't get the button to show. I know that the button is located in the right folder with my style and yet it won't show.

It won't even show on my default skin which is very strange. Is this not compatible with 3.8.7? This is the first time I've installed it on that and it's the only thing that I can point to as a possible issue. Thoughts?

I've got it running on 3.8.7.

Search your postbit template, make sure you have the appropriate template hook.

Yup, I've got it in there but it won't display for some reason.

Can you give it a quick glance and see if I have something coded incorrectly?

I pasted your entire posbit_legacy into a test style on my forum and the like button shows up as expected. Must be some other issue.

I wold go to the postbit_display_complete plugin for this product and try changing the execution order. It is set to 5 usually to start. Try it at 3 or 7 and see if either gets it working.

So strange. Changed it to 3 and nothing and then changed it to 7 and nothing again.

Any other suggestions?

Wait, shows up for me when I logged into another browser. May be a cache thing (even though I cleared and refreshed several times)

LOL....I should be smacked around! Since I am doing most of the posting on the site as I'm developing it, I was actually viewing one of my own posts! LOL...you can't "thank" (or "like" as I'm customizing it) your own post!

Sorry to waste your time Joe and Simon, but thanks for pitching in and trying to help!
