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Original file removed, replaced with patched files including search fix (some admins noticed hackers attempting to use outdated code to exploit search in attempt to gain administrator password or similar).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

But of course it should look like this:

I know or at least I guess this can be fixed in the post_thanks_postbit.

But I dont know what exactly to change there as I am not a coder or something.


Any help would be nice

Thanks

I apologize if this was already asked but could not find answer in a search

Where do you enable the "My Thumb Center" so that you can see it all the time? I only see it when I first get a notification.

Is this possible with VB Cloud? Would it work being placed in CSS? We used to have this hack but it is gone now with a couple of our others after switching to Cloud. Trying to bring back what I can. Thanks.

Not sure if anyone can help. I tried searching for answers in this thread but it's an awfully large thread!!

I've been using this hack for a long time now, a few years at last. Starting about a month ago, it's taking an awfully long time to load the notifications. Giving someone a thanks takes one second of course.

But if I login, and it tells me I have 3 new thanks, and I click on that, it may take 30-60 seconds to load in order to show me who thanked my posts.

I tried repairing and optimizing tables, and it made no difference. I also overwrote the files, reinstall, no luck.

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks much!!

-Jim
