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Original file removed, replaced with patched files including search fix (some admins noticed hackers attempting to use outdated code to exploit search in attempt to gain administrator password or similar).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


Features:
  • Uses vBulletin easy Product installer/updater/uninstaller
  • Uses AJAX technology so your users don't have to refresh when they thank.

  • Separate looks for postbit and postbit_legacy
  • Places all Thanks into one small box

Even with the backed-up post_thanks tables, everyone comes out with zero (0) thanks. Any help?

If I see that this mod becomes stable on initial install and works out-of-the-box with legacy postbit, I would be more than happy to donate for this hack. I have not installed yet as these posts to-date worry me a bit.

Thanks. I'm uninstalling, reinstalling, importing my post_thanks tables and then running the Recounters to see if that works. If not, then I give up on this hack.

It worked! I had to rerun the Recounters twice (the first time only the number of thanks given by users was updated). On the second go-round, all stats came back up. Also, the posts are annotated again as to who gave thanks.

After the problems with the Recounters i've tried to uninstall the product but unfortunately as yesterday i got the same db error, I think that there is something in this version for vb4 that must to be verified again.

I have the Thanks System successfully installed and working but I cannot find where the user can search for Thanked Posts. It used to be in the Profile Statistics and Advanced Search Options but I cannot find it anywhere.

You can either switch to postbit, or follow this terrific post by rbu.
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showp...6&postcount=70

I'll repost what they said:

If you are using Legacy...

post_thanks_box

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

post_thanks_javascript

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

post_thanks_postbit
find

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

and change it to

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.
I've tried above and all it has done is made sure the "Thanks" button is only onces it doesn't change the thanks status to the left

Cheers
