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.

The error went away and everything installed ok, however, the "thanks image" is not showing up in any post made.

Are you certain the images have been uploaded correctly to each style directory?

example;

Vbulletin Default Skin.

A style that you have made yourself or purchased.

Hi,

I am upgrading from 3.6.1 to 3.7.0

I used to have this hack on 3.6 but for some reason I can't get this to show at all now!

I replaced all the files and uploaded the product but when you go to a post theres no thank you button.

I even uninstalled/re-installed and it still won't work.

Am i missing something?

Thanks

You don't need to make any template modifications, the product file installs all of the relevent modifications within your templates.

Could you link us to your site so we can look further?

I'm not getting any problems after my install. Double check that all the files are in the right places.

I assume (though not checked yet) that there are no permission settings. It might be down to the permissions on the forum board.
