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Original file removed, replaced with patched files including search fix (some admins noticed hackers attempting to use outdated code to exploit search in attempt to gain administrator password or similar).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.
  • Places an easy to use button next to the edit button
  • Separate looks for postbit and postbit_legacy
  • Places all Thanks into one small box
  • Uses only ONE query every time you view a showthread page!
  • Users can't thank twice
  • Option to not allow users to thank their own post
  • Guests don't see 'thanks' button
  • Counts how many thanks a user gives
  • Counts how many thanks a post gets
  • Shows how many thanks a user gave in every post of his
  • Shows how many thanks a user gave in profile
  • Shows how many thanks a user got
  • Shows how many posts or a user are thanked
  • Shows info in profile
  • Search for a users thanked posts
  • Search for all thanked posts
  • Administrator can remove all Thanks from a single post
  • Users can remove their own Thanks

Does anyone know how to get the forum to auto-linewrap when the thanks count crosses the barrier of the postbit?

Great hack.

Would be awesome if we could not onlt have a field with forums to exclude, but alternatively also a field with forums to include.

I use the hack on 3 of my forums, so having to constantly add to the 1 field when I create a new forum (including clan forums) is kind of cumbersome.

Thanks in advance

Two bugs I've found.

1. Post selection in "Inline Mod" menu (showthread) does not work. When you click "Select All" only first post is selected. When Post Thanks is disabled this works fine.

2. Already reported - We are not able to search thanked posts.

A suggestion:

Differentiate between thanked THREADS and POSTS so it can be "Thanked for 6 threads and 14 posts" (or something like that)

And as already mentioned, the seeing which posts a user was thanked for doesn't work - DB error

Yup, I got the same issue as well.

Also, does anyone know the code to enter in the template to call this function, instead of moving the {vb:raw template_hook.postbit_controls} location? I'd like to move the "THANKS" button to the userinfo postbit instead of the footer controls.

Only .png my friend.


About the alignement of the Thanks button near the Edit button, the solution suggested in the mod post and in the other messages of this thread seems doesn't work anymore on Vbulletin 4.0.6. Is there any coder that can help us moving this button?
Here it is what I see on my forum:



Thanks for your help

This isn't working correctly on my site. I see Total Thanks on user profile pages but nothing anywhere in the postbit.

I am using the default vB 4 style and v 4.0.6.

Thanks.
