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
  • Uses only ONE query every time you view a showthread page!

After some mutual thanks boosting, we made some changes to which forums are allowed thanks.

I have switched off a specific forum, but would like to delete all thanks received in posts in that forum (because the thanks still count in the totals). Do you know of a query I could run to do this for a single forum #?

I've uploaded this mod, and am getting these error messages

No such file or directory in [path]/includes/class_postbit.php(265) : eval()'d code on line 1

&

....includes/class_postbit.php(265) : eval()'d code on line 1


I've made sure the directory paths are correct....

Any ideas anyone?

I was hoping with the upgrade my problem would go away. However, the information:

Total Thanks
Total Thanks: 349
Thanked 573 Times in 267 Posts
Find all thanked posts by Becky
Find all posts thanked by Becky


Is still showing twice in the member info. It's at the very top, and again between the user notes and general information.

This should be re-labled to something like...

Find all posts thanking Becky
or
Find all posts that thanked Becky

I do not believe this is a duplicate link, but the verbage used is confusing.

can someone help? in some forums it's working and in other not, we are using 3.7.2 pl 1 and vbseo, the version before this one worked perfect
I am having the same problem on my forums. I can't figure it out. Anyone have any ideas what is causing this problem?
