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Original file removed, replaced with patched files including search fix (some admins noticed hackers attempting to use outdated code to exploit search in attempt to gain administrator password or similar).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

  • 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

I don't understand why 7.83 can't have a download link in the main description?

And how can I get links to thanked posts to show up in profiles?

I can confirm that ForceHSS's search version works properly with 4.1.10. However, in the version in his link the entire search function is commented out, which I suspect is why others have reported that it doesn't work. Just remove the commenting from post_thanks_memberinfo_block and it shows up perfectly fine.

That   is the space between the name and the date, which is not what you want. The code as written has no space after the comma. You have to add it in manually at the very end of the line. This is what the full code should look like to display the space after the comma:

that makes a large space ..
I don't have this issue with spacing
in my sig is all the fixes for this mod and it works perfect as it should spacing and all
if the spacing is still off it's a template issue or a custom style conflicting

All I can say is that with your code I had no spaces after the commas, it was just NAME,NAME. While I have many heavily customized styles, it was also that way on vB default, which I have not customized. Adding in the second   fixed the problem for me on all styles and only added in a normal sized space. It now looks entirely proper on my site. If your code as written gives good spacing for others, then it's obviously best not to add in an additional space. However, your code didn't add the space for me, and it seems clear it didn't add it for haidm either. Perhaps we're both running some other module that is causing this difference in appearance.

yeah running into additional.css you may run into this issue ..
not a problem but 99% don't need it but when it was nentioned I tested it is all..
I am glad you got it looking go in your site ..
but as vb goes on things change so the mods that use this comma need to be updated .. check out some of Paul M's mods..
youll see the comments there ...anyway what counts is that it works and there are no errors ..
sometime mods need small tweaks

enjoy
