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
  • Places all Thanks into one small box

Any idea what is causing this? Any fix?
Thanks
No clue. I would have to know how to duplicate it.

But it still miss 3 stuffs very useful (and well , necessary for my use)

1) That the "thanks" button doesn't appears on the messages of the author of the thread (inside the thread)

2) We should have the possibility to set that Only the creator of the thread should be able to give a thanks via the button.

3) We should be able to restrict to "thanks" just one person in a specific thread and just one time. Once the author has given a "thanks" to one person on his thread, all the thanks buttons disapear of every posts of the threads, like it does when you give a thanks to a post...except that the "thanks" button disappears only on the thanked post

Do you think those functions could be integrated soon?

Thanks

3)
Number 1 is done already. Check the ACP options. I dont think I will do 2 or 3.

Something weird going on on my board.

I've been using this mod for quite some time now, and I've never seen this before. A couple of times, someone has thanked another member and this appears:

The Following 4,294,967,295 Users Say Thank You to (user's name) For This Useful Post

(I've replaced the "user's name" here.)

Now I don't have +4 billion users, and after removing the user's thanks - the statement remains under the "thanked" post.

I can't seem to replicate this anywhere. It's only happened a couple of times.

I'm using Thanks 7.6 on vBull 3.71 PL2

Please help. Thanks!

Odd, installed this and it seems to be showing up everywhere except for the button to actually do the thanks. We upgraded today to the new version (of Vbulletin) and still no button. I tried both sets of instructions when the simple import failed. Any ideas why the button to thanks wont show up?

Check that you have this mod declared only once.

ACP -> Plugins & Products -> Manage Products

Ensure that the "Post Thank You Hack" is listed only once (and not twice as per version) !

Hope this help
