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Original file removed, replaced with patched files including search fix (some admins noticed hackers attempting to use outdated code to exploit search in attempt to gain administrator password or similar).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

  • Uses vBulletin easy Product installer/updater/uninstaller

Got a problem. I have checked "Show Stats in Profile" but it doesn't show links to search all posts that user gave thanks to and all posts of his/hers that got thanked by someone else. It showes only number of thanks.

Yes but you'd have to go through each file and change all of the references from thanks to hugs before installing.
A mate of mine edited an earlier version of Post_Thanks to give us a Post_Lol hack on vB 3.6. I've tried to do the same with this current version of Post_Thanks but viewers were unable to view the username of those who had Lol'd their posts for some reason. Apart from that everything else worked as it should. I'm still trying to work it out for myself .

I know, but I run a board for moms and we like to hug a lot. LOL

I tried it but it just changed all thanks to hugs, not installing it twice, just over writing it. Not a big deal. I tried installing the other thanks/like hack but it annihilated my admincp. Just got that back working and leaving it with this hack once for now.

Thanks!

Would I be able to put the "thanks" on the right side of the posts, so it is more visible?

It works fine on 4.0.5 for me. Can anyone else confirm that it actually breaks with 4.0.6...?
