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.

I looked for this but couldn't find any clear instructions on how to do it so thought I would post it once I figured it out. Hope you don't mind.

To move thank button to the left of the edit button:

in postbit_legacy find $template_hook[postbit_controls]

move it from current position to above <if condition="$post['editlink']"> .

Should look like below when moved:
<!-- controls -->
$template_hook[postbit_controls]
<if condition="$post['editlink']">

**If mod is updated, I think it would be nice to add the option of placement of thank button if possible.

I've installed but nothing is showing on the forum, no buttons are showing or anything in the postbit
In the admincp all the controls are there, I can't figure out how to get it to show in the forums though, please help.

This sorted my problem, the postbit_legacy did not have $template_hook[postbit_controls]

Ta.

This is not working at all for me. Using 3.7.3, there is no buttons in posts, no search for thanked posts, nothing in postbits or profiles. I followed instructions exactly and made sure settings were correct in admincp. I've reinstalled twice, still I see nothing.

It is for this site.

Great to see how this product has evolved and is nicely integrated and all that, pretty ajax to make it user friendly on the interface, good options.

I've installed it for a customer on : http://www.yorkiekingdom.net/
