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

Hello folks...

Some users on my forum keep getting this message when browsing..


Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in [path]/includes/functions_post_thanks.php on line 222
Any idea as to what it is? and how to fix it?

Linfield,

I would reinstall it - copy over the files and reinstall the xml with overwrite.

If that does not cure it then it might be conflicting with other hacks/addons you have running so disable one at a time until you work out which is causing the problem!

Is this stable with 3.8.3? I've been reading a lot of problems in here... I may just disable this until it's fixed.

If I uninstall then reinstall, will it delete the existing thanks count for members?

It's working just fine for me with 3.83 (on two separate installations). If it's working for you, I don't see any reason to disable it.

I can't tell you why it's not working for some people, although I suspect some sort of conflict with another add-on and/or a custom style.
