Post Thank You Hack 7.4


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.

I am sorry if this has already been asked. Is it possibe to completely disable this for guests so they won't even see the members who have thanked.

I am just thinking from an SEO point of view this would be a beneficial feature.

I think a simple conditional on post_thanks_postbit_info template at the very begining stating
<if condition="$bbuserinfo[usergroupid] != 1"> and </if> at the very end should do the trick. basically it means if the usergrouipd is NOT 1 (unregistered not logged in) show the content of the template else don't show anything ^^ (ps tested and fixed works to me unresgistered/not logged in people can't see it)

No offence, I think it would be a nice option, but not essential. You see In a medium/large forum where even if a restricted number of people are eligible to used the feature many people (in my forums) got well over 200 thanks in less than a month, imagine the amount of PMs that would involve.
Maybe a feature that alerts you next to the PM number the amount of thanks obtained since last connected but receiving an actual PM I think would be a bit problematic in some cases [I have considered a disable button but then...]

I'm going to assume so far you made the post thank you hack work...
I haven't used or tested hide hack, but I've noticed it hasn't been updated since December, while this hack has suffered important changes in the latest updates so the problem might be with the version incompatibility since maybe now post thank you hack does things differently than what hide hack was originally designed to use.
I know this is probably useless mumble jumble, so let's wait till someone who know these two systems better clarifies the issue. Just in advance I would suggest you to indicate with more detail how they are not working with each other as it would help the expert(s).

below add:
$template_hook[postbit_end]

below that add:
$template_hook[postbit_user_popup]

I'm not sure if all three hooks are necessary, but it's working, the thanks button is on the left side, not right as in normal posts, maybe you can try around a bit to fit your needs.
For the comments I use the vb default postbit_legacy but it should be possible to get this done also in the gars comment template same way as described above.
Only one thing, sometimes there's an error: Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /includes/functions_post_thanks.php on line 183 and the thanks are not shown below the posts, seems to be only occur if a thread has more pages.

I'm running 3.6.7 PL1. I installed the mod and it seems to work fine on my default template, but nothing shows up in the posts on my custom template. The only out of date custom templates found are with my PDA skin. I also installed the additional hook update. Any ideas on how to fix this?

Edit: Tried adding the hooks to my custom template manually. Got the info to display under the rep and got the thanks button to show up. However, if you click the thanks button, it disappears.
