Post Thank You Hack 7.7


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

I have just starting to use this hack after migrating my forum from 3.8.9 to 5.3.2.

I was previously using Abel's Post Thank You Hack.

Is there any way of importing the existing "thanks" into the new system?
How do I make vBulletin's Like button disappear in 5.3.2?

Curious to know if anybody knows how to change this phrase:
The Following User Says Thank You to (username removed) For This Useful Post:

I've tried searching for this phrase with no luck, but still trying. Thanks.

Ken

Disregard, found the phrases! For my forums preferred "Like" and changed button to match the others.

Anyone know why when I enable this plugin on my vBulletin 3.8.9 - when I try and view or create a thread, I get a http 500 error? Yet when it's disabled, no problems at all? I've been in touch with my host all day and we've tried everything but we're not sure what else it could be?

Database error in vBulletin 3.8.11:

Invalid SQL:
SELECT * FROM post_thanks AS post_thanks INNER JOIN user AS user USING (userid) WHERE post_thanks.postid IN (0Array) ORDER BY post_thanks.username ASC;

MySQL Error : Unknown column '0Array' in 'where clause'

I'm getting this when I install for 3.8.11
