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Original file removed, replaced with patched files including search fix (some admins noticed hackers attempting to use outdated code to exploit search in attempt to gain administrator password or similar).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.

  • 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

Ok fixed the problem as said in another topic for line 10

Next problem: 1) upload the 'upload via ftp' folder

I uploaded the whole folder as said in install doc but now I get "you need to upload files to your server. The whole folder is uploaded!

Are you sure you put in the the right location?

Did you copy the main file into the root and the others into the folders?

If your sure you got that right, then I am not sure what is wrong.

New to this stuff. The install doc just said to upload the folder. Did not say to upload each file into each folder. I hope I done this right as I open each folder from the upload FTP folder then uploaded the files from the upload folder to each folder in my forum. Anyway it said it installed now.

Question Fresh Install

Just installed this on 4.1.2
Working good.

Suggestions:
I think the installation files in post #1 of this thread should be modified... perform the .xml modification in line 10
Reasons: Easier for the downloaders, and more importantly, the "Last Updated:" date on this modification will get changed from early 2010, to 2011.
People tend to use the modifications more if the last update is more recent, IMO.

====
A quick question:
Posts made by the Registered Users group are acting strange.
They get a scroll bar for the post.
A scroll bar that just scrolls a couple of pixels.
In other words, the entire post is visible... yet there's a scroll bar that you can "scroll down" just a couple of pixels.
Oddly enough, it doesn't appear on posts made by Administrators.

On our forums, we have installed the latest vBSEO (v3.6.0 RC2).
It has a "Like" link for posts.
Maybe there's the conflict?

What could I check? Verify? Modify?

Here is a screen shot showing the scroll bar:

Thank you!!

Found a bug!!

I have this enabled on 4.1.2

The issue is, with the plugin enabled, it messes up the Blog Entries: part.
The number of blog entries appears at the end of the Thanked 0 Times in 0 Posts bit then it says Blog Entries: under it.

Obviousally it should say Blog Entries: 1

See screenshot.

Doing this has solved my issue.. Sort of.
There is a big gap between Blog Entries: and the number of blogs.

How can I get this to align properly?

This has already been asked, but what is causing the thank button to be displayed in the wrong locations...screenshot attached.

By the way, this is installed on 4.1.2 after a dependency edit
