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Original file removed, replaced with patched files including search fix (some admins noticed hackers attempting to use outdated code to exploit search in attempt to gain administrator password or similar).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

blue code to replace with post_thanks_button

so, xml file ..
Does that put the thanks button to the right and leave the blog to the left?

I couldn't get anything to show up with this one until I disabled it. No big deal...I wanted this one more...but thought I'd share if other's were struggling with getting the Post Thanks to work.
How so, both mods work on my site?

Abe1, donated $20 because of the usefulness of this mod in my boards for all this time that I used it. My members like it, I like it and it's very very much more useful than the standard reputation system. cheers, gj and thanks for updating it.

Also displays the same behavior with the information in postbit see attachment thanks1

See attachment, any ideas?
The mod causing the above mentioned duplication problem is this one...

We are also having this problem, as quoted. Every time a user clicks the "Thanks" button the page reloads. I don't think this is intended behaviour - any suggestions on fixing it?

We are using vB4 PL1, default style with some colour modifications.

Thanks!

I've tried to install but came across an issue.. I had this mod back in 3.8.4 and my members love it was being well used.. but had to uninstall all the mods because of an issue upgrading to 4 (I'm aware I might have lost previous thanks count) but now when I install I get an SQL error..

------------------
Database error in vBulletin 4.0.0:

Invalid SQL:
ALTER TABLE `user` ADD `post_thanks_user_amount` INT( 10 ) UNSIGNED DEFAULT '0' NOT NULL;

MySQL Error : Duplicate column name 'post_thanks_user_amount'
Error Number : 1060

Is there any ideas on how to fix this?? Because I really like this thanks..

Any updates on the post groan addition to this?

We use this hack a little differently on our forums. I had converted the phrases to AGREE (for post thanks) and DISAGREE (for post groan).

This allowed other members of the forums to agree or disagree on a topic without actually cluttering the forums with short posts.

Worked very well.

I would install and support this hack, once the other half is available.

Thanks for all your work thus far.
