What it is: Advanced Thanks/Like mod is designed to cut down on spam and increase useful content in your forum by using a peer encouragement system - users thank/like each others posts, which can give them access to attachements, post content etc, as well as encourage the thanked person to post more great content.

Importer from Abe's Thanks mod (vB3 / vB4) and vBSEO "Likes" now available in Lite version!



Major Features: Lite

Require a Button Click: Allows you to hide the content of a post, or hie an attachment, until the person clicks a button on the post.

Statistics: Shows the top 5 people for; Giving / Receiving button clicks.

Collapsable postbit stats: Shows how many button clicks a person has given, received etc in the postbit. Admins can determine what statistics can show in the postbit to control sizes etc. The postbit is also collapsable.

Admin Permissions: Control things such as who can click buttons, require button clicks, what shows in postbit, what options can run concurrently, per forum permisions etc.

Reputation: Add / Remove Reputation for each of your button clicks.

Notifications: Receive alerts when a member clicked on one of the buttons for one of your posts.

Import Thanks: Import script to import "thanks" from Abe's [AJAX] Post Thank You Hack on vBulletin.org. It will work with both vB3 and vB4 versions of this mod.

Import Likes: Import script to import "likes" from vBSEO.


Major Features: Pro

Infinite Buttons: Ability to create new buttons to press! No longer do you need to be limited by Thanks / Like / Dislike.

Auto Collapse Posts: Collapses a post so it doesnt show up by using a formulae for button clicks of your choosing.

User Postbit Config: Lets users decide what postbit stats they want to see.

Additional permissions: Un-click a button. Control how many stats show on the statistics page, set permissions per subforum.

Integrated Controls: You can now integrate the button clicking controls into the post footer, like many of you requested.

Buttons in First Post Only: This allows you to only make the first post thankable. If you forum is based around news, releases or anything similar this will allow your users to easily see the quality of the thread in question.

Button Click Anonymity: This feature will be extremely helpful to forums who like the idea of a "dislike" button, but don't like the drama it brings. Now you can set certain buttons to be anonymous - no one will see who clicked.

Post Colour Thresholds: Ever wanted an easy way for members to tell if a post is helpful or trash? Colour thresholds let you change the colour of posts depending on how many clicks of a button they receive. Members can now see at a glance whether or not a post is helpful, interesting or pointless.

I suspect that this has likely come up before but I wasn't able to find any similar reports in earlier posts.

Here's the issue that I'm encountering (vB 4.2.3, mod v3.5.0):

When the "Thank for this post" link is clicked, the corresponding user title changes to "Guest", the Avatar is replaced with the default image and the thanks total and list is not refreshed. Once the page is reloaded everything appears as expected.

Any ideas?

Hi there,

No-one has reported a similar issue in the past, leading me to believe this is a mod conflict. Could you please try disabling all other modifications leaving only this mod enabled?

It appears that the primary conflict is with:

More Share Options: The Next Generation - By BOP5

http://www.qapla.com/mods/showthread...-By-BOP5/page4

Once this mod is disabled the postbit remains intact and the name of the user that contributed the thank appears as expected.

Any chance that there is a known workaround?

This is unrelated but something else I wanted to ask about:

While testing, I inadvertently thanked a message using an admin account. I now notice that it is possible to prevent this from happening.

Is there any way to remove or hide the admin thank?

Can you try turning off Post Refresh in the vBulletin Options for APTL?

I believe deleting entries via the ACP is a Pro-only feature, are you able to search for entries in the Lite version?

Sorry but with 75+ products it's hard for me to keep the Lite/Pro split in my head for all of them

I'll have to do some additional testing, but in FF that appears to resolve the issue. The profile name appears in the Post Thanks list, however the "Thanks" count isn't incremented. I'll give Chrome and IE a try as well.

In the lite version you can search for entries but the delete feature isn't supported.

And no problem... I really appreciate your willingness to help. If we can get those going I'm sure we'll jump to the pro version.

No changes to the way reputation works in this mod have been implemented at this time, sorry

If you have previously downloaded our mods from our site, then you do not need this update as it is the same files.

Turn on the "Disable "Given" Stat In Postbit" and "Disable "Received" Stat In Postbit" settings in the button manager for each button
