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Original file removed, replaced with patched files including search fix (some admins noticed hackers attempting to use outdated code to exploit search in attempt to gain administrator password or similar).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

I only have the thanks text and no thumbs image. What's the problem?

It's a clean install on default skin.

Great Mod!!
I have just a small issue, i use my forum with a style i downloaded from the Styles section here and in the postbit legacy the number of thanks is not aligned with the word "Thanks".
With the default style there is no problem.
see attachments.

Version 5.3 uses exactly the same database tables. To fix the error change to the following in products-post_thanks.xml

This is the original error:

OK, I have a custom skin and the thumbs image doesn't appear, only the text. I've made the suggested template modifications but it doesn't work.

Any idea?

Unfortunately, I also love Mosh's Panic Hack which works GREAT except that it wipes out VB's "Blog This Post" and also your "Post Thank You" hack. Both at the same time.

I'm not a programmer but my logic tells me you probably programmed your hack in such a way that it eases in next to something instead of totally taking a space.

Can you help me in any way with this unfortunate conflict because I need both your hacks for my users.

This is the conflict I'm getting

Here's with Panic Off



And now with Panic On




I'm using VB4 Suite with the blogs turned on. Thanks
I'm having the same issue... I would also like to know how to fix this. I like both hacks and want to use them, for now I'm having to choose between the two.

Great hack Abe1, I've been waiting for this to be updated. Thank you!

Can you look at the postbit template and tell me where the original hook is and the original phrase?

I know this requires some sort of copying and pasting of the tables from my backup (I restored it to a new db) then adding them to the current db. I just don't know how this is done and I don't know which tables are needed.

Thanks.
Perhaps you could try creating a new database table, import your old 3.x.x backup, then download/backup the individual "thank you" tables, then import them into the vb 4.x database. This is how I would try doing it but I have not done this before but it is the only solution that I can think of if you don't want to lose your weeks worth of posts.
