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Original file removed, replaced with patched files including search fix (some admins noticed hackers attempting to use outdated code to exploit search in attempt to gain administrator password or similar).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
  • Guests don't see 'thanks' button
  • Counts how many thanks a user gives
  • Counts how many thanks a post gets
  • 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
  • Shows info in profile
  • Search for a users thanked posts
  • Search for all thanked posts
  • Administrator can remove all Thanks from a single post
  • Users can remove their own Thanks
  • Turn on and off hack totally
  • Turn on and off hack for only some forums
  • Option to turn off hack for all but the first post of a thread
  • Option to turn off hack for all but the first post of a thread in specific forums
  • Option to turn off hack view of date for specific or all forums

Along with a load of other similar errors for do=findthanks

The "search" table doesn't exist in stock vB4.
Yep, I can confirm this issue. I actually came to this thread to report it, but I'd figure I'd support the existing report instead.

Hold on is there a way of getting the old count back in anyway??

I've found another sql with the old count how do i just import that ?? Cheers
[EDIT] I added them in manually... not the same but at least the counts there.. I didn't do it for everyone only the main people...
You could create a new database, back up your old back up. Then using something like phpmyadmin download the individual thank you tables. Then import the thank you tables into your current database for your active forum. That would probably work. You would still need to run an upgrade of the latest version of this addon though I would imagine after doing so. I can't guarantee that this will work but it is worth a try.

1 - there is no thanks button coming
2 - the first post showing Thanked 0 Times in 0 Posts one time
in second post its showing Thanked 0 Times in 0 Posts two times
and so on
3 - i dont have any BBR - Useful Links on Member Action Dropdown
4 - i am having Add Ignore User To Postbit Dropdown plugin so when i disabled it its working fine but still i cant see thanks button
Did you uninstall the previous version? If you did you will lose your thank you score. What version of vbulletin are you using? This thank you version is for vbulletin version 4.

What I did to resolve this was to comment out these lines in post_thanks.php...

I found this query on lines 278 - 285, 413 - 420, and 527 - 534. I commented out all of them 3 days ago and haven't received this error and also haven't seen any adverse effects.

Hope this helps!

The notification of posted thanks isn't working on my end but the over hack is. Is there a way to fix this? Using 4.0.1.

Mine doesn't show like that but it shows how it should. I am using postbit style though if that helps.

Smaller footprint

Do you think that perhaps the "Following Users Say..." takes up too much screen real estate? It seems to me that smaller fonts and keeping the usernames on the same line and less white space below the names would be less disruptive to the "flow" of the forums. I know I can hack it, but every upgrade will likely break my hack of the hack. Any thoughts?

And, yes, I've hacked a "laughing" version of the "Thanks" hack for our forums.

Severe errors

I updated to 4.0.1 and updated Post Thanks to this version. With Post Thanks TURNED OFF!!! I am having numerous issues. The only way to stop all this was to add define("DISABLE_HOOKS", 1); to config.php.

Errors:

1) - I am unable to view a thread. I get the following errors and the page does not display:

"Warning: fetch_template() calls should be replaced by the vB_Template class. Template name: post_thanks_navbar_search in [path]/includes/functions.php on line 3893"

"Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at [path]/includes/class_core.php:4501) in [path]/includes/functions.php on line 3742"

2) - I am unable to login the adminCP. I get the following errors:

"Warning: fetch_template() calls should be replaced by the vB_Template class. Template name: post_thanks_navbar_search in [path]/includes/functions.php on line 3893"

"Unable to add cookies, header already sent.
