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Original file removed, replaced with patched files including search fix (some admins noticed hackers attempting to use outdated code to exploit search in attempt to gain administrator password or similar).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

1) open template postbit
find
HTML Code:

{vb:raw template_hook.postbit_controls}

and move it under

<span class="postcontrols">

2) Do the same for postbit_legacy

A big thanks to Alexander from www.webandart.gr !

This was a nice modification, but I have learned that it did slow down my community a little.

For me it worked flawlessly though in 4.1.2

But vBSEO does have their own "Likes" option.

Un-installed.

Solution for "Could not find phrase 'post_thanks'."

Over the past years, many people have reported a problem when using this mod - after clicking Thanks the following error appears :

Could not find phrase 'post_thanks'.
It's been reported since 2006 (see here) and apparently still hasn't been fixed. Some people have even stopped using the mod due to this error, even though the error is only a message and doesn't affect functionality of the mod.

I think the main reason it hasn't been fixed is because the error is rarely seen - that's because the 'Redirecting' page is not seen by most people due to the use of AJAX. However, while testing this mod with various browsers and various settings, I have seen this error a few times. One way to see the error is to right-click the Thanks button and open it in a new tab, then it doesn't use AJAX so the error will appear temporarily before the page is reloaded. But I've also seen the error in other (rare) situations.

I couldn't find any solutions online so I tried to find a solution myself. First I tried to manually create the missing phrase, but I couldn't get it to work. Then I searched the post_thanks templates to manually fix it, but I couldn't find anywhere to fix it there, so then I searched the actual files included in the zip but I'm not an expert coder so I still couldn't figure out how to fix it.

Fortunately I then came up with a quick-fix solution and figured I should post it here in case anyone else wants to use it. It's very simple - you just use the Replacement Variable Manager to get rid of the message! So in your admin control panel just go to the Replacement Variable Manager, click 'Add New Replacement Variable' then in the top box enter the following :

could not find phrase 'post_thanks'.
And just leave the bottom box blank, then Save. No more error message

Hope this helps someone!
