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

See the image below...it's the small green square that become 4 or 5 green squares when you attain more thanks.
just change the gif to whatever you want

you will find it in

images/reputation/reputation_green.gif

change the colour using photoshop or similar then save it with the same name in the same folder.

This is what I am hoping for as well; as I don't think the older version of the groan will work =/

apparently it won't work, just by reading the number of people who have asked for it and tried it...

On another note, does anyone know how to change the order of the search for "Fina all thanked posts" in the search drop down?

I'm not real sure how to move it. Right now it's below my google search box, which is a very odd place for it. It's not actually in the navbar template as it appears to use the hook that's there. So how can I order it?

Upgraded to the latest vB and removed the old 6.4 Thank You hack thinking it would preserve all the data for when I installed this new version and it did not. Spend the last 5 hours putting the data back into the post_thanks table by hand, all 65,000+ entries through mysqladmin.

Now how do I reconnect this data with the users and with the posts so it shows up in the forums?

There has to be a couple of sql commands that will do this, but my brain is dead. Please help!

Does anyone know where I would change the execution order of this plug-in?

Basically, the search link shows up after my google search box, I'd like it to show before that box. Since this uses a hook it's not as straightforward as just editing the navbar template.
