What it is: Advanced Thanks/Like mod is designed to cut down on spam and increase useful content in your forum by using a peer encouragement system - users thank/like each others posts, which can give them access to attachements, post content etc, as well as encourage the thanked person to post more great content.

Importer from Abe's Thanks mod (vB3 / vB4) and vBSEO "Likes" now available in Lite version!



Major Features: Lite

Require a Button Click: Allows you to hide the content of a post, or hie an attachment, until the person clicks a button on the post.

Statistics: Shows the top 5 people for; Giving / Receiving button clicks.

Collapsable postbit stats: Shows how many button clicks a person has given, received etc in the postbit. Admins can determine what statistics can show in the postbit to control sizes etc. The postbit is also collapsable.

Admin Permissions: Control things such as who can click buttons, require button clicks, what shows in postbit, what options can run concurrently, per forum permisions etc.

Reputation: Add / Remove Reputation for each of your button clicks.

Notifications: Receive alerts when a member clicked on one of the buttons for one of your posts.

Import Thanks: Import script to import "thanks" from Abe's [AJAX] Post Thank You Hack on vBulletin.org. It will work with both vB3 and vB4 versions of this mod.

Import Likes: Import script to import "likes" from vBSEO.


Major Features: Pro

Infinite Buttons: Ability to create new buttons to press! No longer do you need to be limited by Thanks / Like / Dislike.

Auto Collapse Posts: Collapses a post so it doesnt show up by using a formulae for button clicks of your choosing.

User Postbit Config: Lets users decide what postbit stats they want to see.

Additional permissions: Un-click a button. Control how many stats show on the statistics page, set permissions per subforum.

Integrated Controls: You can now integrate the button clicking controls into the post footer, like many of you requested.

Buttons in First Post Only: This allows you to only make the first post thankable. If you forum is based around news, releases or anything similar this will allow your users to easily see the quality of the thread in question.

Button Click Anonymity: This feature will be extremely helpful to forums who like the idea of a "dislike" button, but don't like the drama it brings. Now you can set certain buttons to be anonymous - no one will see who clicked.

Post Colour Thresholds: Ever wanted an easy way for members to tell if a post is helpful or trash? Colour thresholds let you change the colour of posts depending on how many clicks of a button they receive. Members can now see at a glance whether or not a post is helpful, interesting or pointless.

Be that as it may, do you think that's a valid excuse to be as rude as you were in this post? If you are having a bad day, I sympathise with you, but I don't think you should take it out on others.

In either case, I've downloaded the latest zip file from this thread, from the vB3 thread here: https://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=243511 and from our site here: https://www.dragonbyte-tech.com/stor...t-thanks-like/

There is absolutely no reference to the text "blog_list_entries_complete" in any of these files.

As you can see from this thread & the vB3 thread linked above, the last time this product was updated was April 2017.

I am seriously going to tell you that maybe the issue was hotfixed* between the first day v3.6.3 was released (13th February 2017, according to this page: https://www.dragonbyte-tech.com/stor...t-thanks-like/ ) and 20th April 2017.

I am also seriously going to tell you that maybe you downloaded v3.6.3 somewhere in that 2 month period (or however long it was in between noticing the issue and fixing it).

Lastly, I am going to seriously tell you that since this thread, the vB3 thread and our site is not flooded with people experiencing the same issue (in spite hundreds of downloads), chances are the latest version of the files do not contain this issue.


* by "hotfix", I mean fixing the issue without releasing a new version. Files may be patched @ DBTech without the release date or version number changing, and new .zip files may be generated and uploaded here @ vBulletin.org without releasing a new version.

I am pretty certain I downloaded 3.6.3 just a few days ago but I will give you the benefit of the doubt and download it again now and see if the issue recurs.

I am back to offer you a sincere apology and to eat a sizeable portion of humble pie.

I could have sworn I downloaded the latest version from here just a few days before upgrading, on December 28, 2017, to be specific.

On double-checking, the version of the ZIP file on my hard drive was dated April 11, 2017, obviously before you last updated it.

I re-upgraded to version 3.6.3 using the updated archive and the previous error with the blog no longer exists.

Again, I sincerely apologize. Thank you for your patience with my frustration and outburst.

(I have deleted my two previous posts.)

Is this mod compatible with 4.2.5 and PHP 7.1.13? Ive been using Abe's Post Thanks but it's showing errors now.

I have tried to use this mod a while back and it failed to hide content within [*hide*] tags after i disabled 'Hide Hack Resurrection'.

Yes, it is. Compatibility with HIDE tags from 3rd party products cannot be guaranteed, however.

Like I said, HIDE tags generated by other mods may not be compatible. That means they may have added attributes or other functionality to their BBCode that means this mod cannot read it.

But yes, if it's just a plain [HIDE] tag with nothing else, then in theory it should work. That is not a guarantee.

Run the "Repair Cache" function, then you should be ready to begin setting up your buttons.

In the product's General Options, look at the bottom two settings:
  • Display Button Click Count - Threads
  • Display Button Click Count - Forums
Set those to "No" to disable them.
