Post Thank You Hack 7.7


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!

Looked in template postbit and didn't see how to do this, so I appreciate the help...

How can I move the Thanks button to the left of all of the other buttons rather than the right side? Thanks

We're using this mod, and I quite like it. I have a question, though. In every forum I've seen that had a thanks mod, hitting thanks bumped the thread. I don't see an option for that. How easy would that be to add in as an option?

If anyone's curious, I figured this out myself using the Bump Threads mod. It's very simply to make hitting thanks bump the thread.

First, open post_thanks.php. Find this line:


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

Inside that if block, find this line:


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

Right above that line, add this small chunk of code:


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

The thread will now be bumped to the top upon hitting thanks.

A note to the mod writer: this is a handy feature, and it'd be trivial to add an option in the admin panel to enable/disable the bumping of threads upon hitting thanks. Love the plugin.

[edit]
By the way, I'm on a 3.7.3 PL1 install for what it's worth.

Quick question: How do I search for "most thanked user" for a certain period of time? Let's say - most thanked member of October etc.

And "Most Thanked Post" - that would be great.

Trying to figure this out but can't do it.

Please advise - thanks!
