Post Thank You Hack

STAFF EDIT:
Note - The mod author has been unreachable for some time, but the vbulletin.org community has stepped up to provide a number of individual fixes over the years. ForceHSS, Hippy, and Seven Skins have all combined many of these fixes into product files.

ALL CREDIT STILL GOES TO ABE1 And this is still 'his' mod. Please still mark the mod as installed if you use any version of it.

That said so you don't need to apply a dozen + small fixes yourself you should consider downloading one of the updated packages below:

Hippy has one in this post.

AND / OR

ForceHSS has one in this post.

AND/OR

Seven Skins has one in this post.


- Original File Specs: post_thanks_7_82.zip (26.4 KB, 24844 downloads) - Original file removed, replaced with patched files including search fix (some admins noticed hackers attempting to use outdated code to exploit search in attempt to gain administrator password or similar).
- There are five total patched versions available, some with and without the search fix - I've replaced the main file with the patched versions... please be sure to download and install the correct version, the main mod post contains links to additional information and patched files!
- If Abe1 returns he can request these packages be removed.


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!
  • Users can't thank twice
  • Option to not allow users to thank their own post

  • Counts how many thanks a user gives
  • Counts how many thanks a post gets
  • Shows how many thanks a user gave in every post of his
  • Shows how many thanks a user gave in profile
  • Shows how many thanks a user got
  • Shows how many posts or a user are thanked
  • Shows info in profile
  • Search for a users thanked posts
  • Search for all thanked posts
  • Administrator can remove all Thanks from a single post
  • Users can remove their own Thanks
  • Turn on and off hack totally
  • Turn on and off hack for only some forums
  • Option to turn off hack for all but the first post of a thread
  • Option to turn off hack for all but the first post of a thread in specific forums

I noticed the other day that when someone with a space in their username likes a post, this happens: http://i.imgur.com/9JAsNaF.png

Any tips that might help me resolve this issue? It's not deal-breaking, but its a bit of an annoyance.

but this will hide all the members who gave thanks if they are 5 or more.. What I want is the 5 members will still be shown. Some thing like

member1, member2, member3, member4, member5 and 10 others
then the 10 others is collapsable..

I have a question.

How do I get the Thank stats in the box like my other stats? My stats are in a white box, but the Thanks stats are not.

Thanks

Same here. Any thoughts on why spaces break the list?

Thanks!

Fixed (for anyone else curious) -

Open up functions_post_thanks.php

Find

And add a space to both of the first two instances. Should end up looking like this:

You may need to remove extra   if you originally added spaces via the post_thanks_box_bit template (like I did). This was hacky, and much better to do through the functions file. Usernames will break as expected now.

If you don't mine I will use your post and add it to the fix post and update the archive I have there ..
thanks for posting the find / fix and the help to keep this mod alive..
It is very much appreciated
( I think I can safely speak for everyone that still uses this great mod)

Hi,

works very well on vB 4.2.0 PL3.
But two little questions:

1. How can I move the Thx Button? It should be in the middle.
2. Is there a chance to see how many THX a post has get in the FORUMDISPLAY? Perhaps after the Threadtitle?

Thx for help

DaPike
