This product essentially causes a $post['rsum'] value to be defined in the postbit and postbit_legacy templates.
This value contains the total reputation that the post has got (all scores are added together).

Using template edits and conditionals based on that value, you can display the result in any way you want.
It is a very flexible system.
By default, it uses a simple green/red number and icon as can be seen in the template edit above.

So, screenshots wouldn't really represent it well, because the way it is displayed is up to the board owner who installs it. They can use the variable supplied for any purpose, or even build other hacks based on it.

By default, posts with positive rep have something like this added to the right of their icon :
+2

Posts with negative overall reputation, of, say, 4, have this added to their title :
-4

Again though, how it displays is entirely down to you.
You can display it very differently by just using a slightly different template edit.

I like this, but one thing people should be aware of is that if you have a large board the install will likely time out, potentially causing issues, because it's altering the POST table, which in my case is massive.

If you have a large board you may be better off running those queries manually using shell access and editing them out of the install XML file.

Correct.
I foresaw this issue, but have been spending the hour or so since I posted this mod on other things, and have not yet got around to adding this info to the mod description.
Thank you for reminding me - I will do that now.

Update : this info has been added to the mod description.

This sounds just like what I need for my forum. Could a screenshot be provided so I can see what it looks like on an actual post before installing? Would it work something along the lines of WoWhead: http://www.wowhead.com/?quest=7631#comments:id=23407

With the +30 rating, +8 Rating etc?

re: screenshots :

Positive rep displays like this :
"+30 "
or this :
"+8 "

Negative rep displays like this :
"-2"
or this :
"-14"

These little display indicators appear next to the post title icon by default in postbit_legacy. However... you can simply do a different template edit to make them appear in a different place, or in a different format. As stated in the mod, what this mod really does is provide $post[rsum] the vartiable in postbit and postbit_legacy. By using template conditionals with this variable, you can create pretty much any effect you want. That's why I don't include screenshots... how this mod looks on your forum is entirely up to you.

re: WoWhead: WoWhead appears to be using a very simplified version of the rep system where you just have "+" and "-" buttons. My mod uses the full reputation system as a backend. But, like WoWhead, it displays the cumulative score each post has got on the post. By using a template edit (involving using a custom rsum conditional to add a font color tag before the post pagetext) you could quite easily make posts with high reputation appear in green, just like posts with high points/karma on WoWhead appear in green. By default, though, that isn't how it works. By default my mod's template edit just adds a small indicator at the top of posts. However, you can quite easily use the supplied variable to do other graphical effects if you wish, including the effect WoWhead uses. You just have to be willing to learn how to use simple template conditionals if you want custom effects.

To further address this issue, I have changed the product file so that the initial queries it does on install are much smaller. This should enable it to install more quickly on big boards.
If big board owners want to enable the features provided by this mod for all their historical posts, clear instructions have been placed in step two of the install process which enable them to do this. This should make the install process safer for big board owners, and clearer for everyone, without making it any longer.

Complete installation step two, above.

That was part of the design - I've never seen a post get that much reputation before!
However, I will adapt the mod to address your issue.

I've released version 4b, which ups the maximum tally for each post to 32,767.
To upgrade:
* uninstall the existing product
* import the new attached product
* perform step two of the installation

This will re-generate all your post reputation scores, changing all the ones currently set to 127 to whatever the correct value is.

Only people who have posts on their forum with >127 or <-127 rep are advised to do this particular upgrade.

Thankyou for the reply. I realise that all forums can look different, I guess I just thought of looking at a screenshot how you have it set up - ie how it's set up as a default.

Also perhaps showing how exactly the post reputation is given - ie with the [+/-] on the actual post like on Wowhead, or if it's a drop down menu thing etc.

Just to help me get a better understanding of how it all looks before I go attempting to play with it.

This mod adds the +X or -X indicators as shown above. It does not add "+" and "-" buttons like on WoWhead. My mod uses the existing reputation system as the basis for its point scores on posts. WoWhead uses something else.

If you want a quick demo of how my mod looks on your forum, just perform install steps one and three. This will show you how it looks, and only take about 2 minutes of install time. Just revert/uninstall the mod if you don't like it. If you like the concept but don't like how it looks, then learn to edit templates, and use a different template edit. Once you have sorted out a different template edit, just post it here and I'll link to it. It would be fairly trivial to add in an if conditional that turned post text green on posts with positive rep or positive rep above a certain threshold.

Your database prefix. The one you defined when you installed vBulletin.
