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

Arrow Feature Request: provide 2nd set of "Ban Usergroups" & "Ban User" settings

Thanks for this great mod! I have a feature request:
Provide a 2nd set of "Ban Usergroups" & "Ban User" settings in VB Options so that when this mod is enabled for all posts, one set of "Ban Usergroups" & "Ban User" can be applied to first posts only, and another set can be applied to all postings. By having 2 sets of these settings, the admin can allow all users to thank first posts while allowing only admins, moderators, & thread creators to thank all posts. Thanks for considering

Hi Abe,

just a short question:
During the night while the cronjobs are running I am getting an error message in my logfiles which looks like a problem with your addon


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

Do you have an idea?

Hmmm, this one doesn't seem to want to upload for me. I have uploaded the upload folder to my forum root, but when I tried to upload the product, it wouldn't do it. It looked like it was going to, but it never do, so I backed out.

Any reason why that would happen?

Hello !

I am having an issue with vBadvanced portal. When i try to click on "Find all thanked posts" from my homepage (vBadvanced) i get this error:

Not Found
The requested URL /post_thanks.php was not found on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
I've noticed in the link that the /forum/ is missing. I've searched inside the navbar template but couldn't find any thank you line. I also added in vBadvanced navbar replacements the "post_thanks.php" file, but that didn't helped either. If the link is clicked from inside the /forum, it works.

Can somebody tell me how to fix this ?
Thx in advance !

I am having an issue where I can't thank multiple posts in one thread.

If I try to thank a second post in the same thread, I get a message saying "you do not have permission to access this page. "

I am logged in with the super admin account.

I get the following error while doing some housecleaning on my mods today

Warning: in_array() [function.in-array]: Wrong datatype for second argument in [path]/includes/class_postbit.php(303)

The error went away when I reverted my postbit template.

This error was traced to post thanks and I wonder if there is a way to get rid of it.

Just a quick question

Should this run fine w/ VBulletin 3.7.2 pacth level 1? I had Post Thank You Hack v. 7.4 installed & had a problem w/ Thanks adding up. The button was there & seemed to be working but the total number of thanks never went up from 0. I am now installing Post Thank You Hack v. 7.7. I guess I will find out if it was just an error on my part but let me know if you have any feedback please.
