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.
  • 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

  • Search for all thanked posts
  • Administrator can remove all Thanks from a single post
  • Users can remove their own Thanks
  • Turn on and off hack totally

  • Option to turn off hack for all but the first post of a thread
  • Option to turn off hack for all but the first post of a thread in specific forums

I believe the issue is because you have customized templates and the mod was not able to rewrite them. I had the same issue with my username request mod. But after reverting those customized templates and reinstalling the mod, it worked just fine.

Just one question, prolly a very stupid one, but i am stuck at the installation..
2) Import product-post_thanks.xml into PRODUCTS. Allow Overwrite "YES" (admincp -> Plugin System -> Manage Products -> [Add/Import Product])
this product-post_thanks.xml file, I don't seem to have this file included in the download.. did i miss it somewhere? i am on vB 3.6.4..

Unfortunately after upgrading this from 6.3 to 7.4, my members received thanks number stopped increasing when they are thanked, and my admincp section still looked the same without any new functions. Perhaps there was a change in table? Anyways, I had to revert it back to 6.3 to keep it running. I would choose to not uninstall and install again because that removes all my member's thanks and I'm sure they'd be really mad if I did that.

I sure did. That's why I wasn't able to figure out what the issue was with it. I do however have a suspicion that there's a duplicate table or entry for thanks received on my forum. Otherwise, it wouldn't have not increases when someone gives thanks. I'll have to compares the tables sometime when I have the time. But even so, it shouldn't have not update the admincp functions, and that's what really puzzles me. Thanks for your attention.
