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Original file removed, replaced with patched files including search fix (some admins noticed hackers attempting to use outdated code to exploit search in attempt to gain administrator password or similar).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

Any coders know what needs to be changed to make this work with PHP 7? I'm getting this error:

Line 182:

Checking my error log shows this also:

operator not supported for strings on line 182 in /home/flipflop/public_html/includes/functions_post_thanks.php
in /home/flipflop/public_html/vb/vb.php on line 286

Normally, I refrain from promoting a competing product in a product's support thread, but this product was released 9 years ago, and the developer hasn't been online for almost 7 years.

I highly recommend using DBTech's thanks product instead...this product is simply not written for vB 4.2.x, much less for PHP 7.x. DBTech's product is currently actively supported, particularly for the latest version of vB 4.2.x and PHP.

Appreciate the heads up, Mark, just not a fan of that product unfortunately. I'll keep scratching round trying to see if I can solve it with some good old fashioned investigating.

Doesn't work, seems to break the threads and can't open a thread.

I have no idea what I did different but I was having another attempt at this and that code worked and now I'm running PHP 7.1.

Many thanks.


I have attached the functions_post_thanks for anyone who may need it to get this mod working with 4.2.5 and PHP 7.

Sorry, I must admit that I did not test it. I just had a look at the code and thought it should work.

Hi,

We have just updated our forum finally to version 4! However my colleague who actually created the forum and sorted out the plugins and add ons etc is no longer here. I understand and know all the basics and can usually read instructions but I am having a bit of trouble trying to get this add on back I was wondering if you guys would be able to help me?

I downloaded the post_thanks_ version_7.84+with_and-without-integrated_postbit_box_collapse.zip moved it over to the server it needs to be on and from what I took from the instructions I then just needed to add this as a plugin on vbulletin but I wasn't exactly sure how to upload the XML file as that wasn't in the folder that I was told to download.

This may seem so easy to you guys but any help will be very much appreciated.

Thanks!
