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

A couple of things I'd love to know how to do, if anyone can help me:

1) Is there a way to change anywhere it says "Thanks" to "Like" by modifying either some of the code within the AdminCP or modifying a certain file (if so, where should I be going to do that, exactly)?

2) How can I turn off the statistics that are kept for each user? I don't really want to display how many times each user has thanked or has been thanked.

... Thanks!

Do a search in phrases for Thanks and change them to Like

Set "Show Stats in Postbit" and "Show Stats in Profile" to no in "Post Thank you hack" settings.

Whoops! Didn't realize I didn't have the latest version (7.4 didn't have the option to turn those stats off); thanks!

As for the first part, pardon my ignorance, but I'm not entirely sure what you mean. I understand the concept of finding one word and replacing it with another automatically, but I'm not sure where specifically I'm supposed to go to do that in this instance? A file that came with the mod? Somewhere in the templates? Somewhere in the mod within the adminCP?

You can upgrade to 3.8.7 without a problem. Don't Uninstall the mod. You can disable it if you want before/while upgrading.

By default the Thanks button is added at the end of the postbit buttons list. What if I wanted to place that before the "Reply", "Quick Reply", and "Edit" buttons in postbit? How do I manually set the placement of the thanks button?

I am having trouble getting this hack to work on my site (www.bonsainut.com).

I am running vB version 3.8.4 v 2
I downloaded Post Thanks Hack 7.7

I installed the Mod:
I uploaded the files via FTP
I installed it via the Product Manager in my control panel
I hit "install" in this thread

It shows up in my vB Options Menu
I checked the options and make sure everything is turned "on"
But I don't see any "thanks" button on the posts

Interestingly, if I check my User CP, and my user Statistics, the Posts Thanked list shows up in my statistics (current count zero). But otherwise I cannot detect Post Thank You functionality anywhere on my site.

I assume there is a conflict with another Mod, or some customization code (?) but for the life of me I can't figure it out. I am not receiving any error codes...

I think you'll find that you just have the path to the images wrong

Ok let me rephrase what I said I know I have a custom folder for images (buttons). I have installed the post thank you files in BOTH FOLDERS - the default AS WELL AS my custom folder. The mod does not work.

Do I have to modify the Post Thank You code in order to point it to a different folder? Or do I need to return my vBulletin install to default folders in order to get the Mod to work?

The image will look like this
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Just to prove whether it's that change it for the full url so
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

And see if that makes a difference
