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

Great mod - and I've been using this for a long time.

Question - is there a way to "weigh" the rep points given for a "thanks" in particular forums? For instance, on my message board, a "thanks" is worth 5 rep points given. But there are some forums that are off topic (like a "jokes" forum, etc.) I have some members that have a huge amount of rep points, but they post mainly in off topic areas. I know that one can shut off the "thanks" in selected forums, but I'd still like the "thanks" to be available there. For instance thanks in the "jokes" section are worth 1 rep point, "thanks" in the on-topic areas are worth 5.

Make sense?

Is this possible?

It doesn't work. The forum doesn't load.

I can access forums but as soon as I click on a thread I've got this message displayed:



This is the error:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

Fresh install of this hack (never before used) on a vb 3.6.10-->3.7.0 board

Another note. During both installat/uninstall of the hack the page keeps loading without 'product uninstalled' message displayed.
Any help, please?

@Abe1
Is it possible to add a "Hide Post Thanks Given" option for certain usergroups (guests for example) in a future update?

I've just realised while editing templates for another mod that I should've been editing the postbit_legacy template. Thanks anyway Zagis.

Abe, in post_thanks_postbit_legacy template, could you please replace
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

near the start with
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

to be compliant with the rest of the templates? If I don't use the
cellspacing="$stylevar[cellspacing]"
I don't get a nice border round the thanks box like I do with the rest of the posts.
And I'm bored with editing it every time.
Thanks .
