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.

Yes, you need to extract the folder locally, then use an FTP program (FileZilla is a free one) to connect to your site's FTP (use ftp.yoursite.com as the host, and the same credentials you use to connect to cPanel) and upload the contents of the upload folder to your site

When you say upload them to my site, do I open the upload directory and move the files and directories to the public_html on my server? Is it that simple or is there more involved?
Again, I am some what of a novice. I have installed other mods to my site and they were rather easy by comparison.
Thanks.

Some questions:

Does this work with no problems on vbulletin 4.2.1?

Does this mod slow down a site? I read with alarm from an earlier poster who said it did, and I didn't see a response from the developer.

Can this thing block duplicate clicks by ip address? We have a need to count thanks on threads for a prize, and people are cheating by signing up additional accounts on the same ip. Need something to stop that from happening.

There's a hack that prevents multiple accounts that works pretty good.

I'm just writing so say "thanks for all the fish!" (I have the Pro version). I'm leaving, with my large Forum, for XenForo.

Question

Where do we find the drop down menu in post bit? We need to put the numbers to the side of the words instead of underneath them (see screenshot)

Also, where do we find the buttons for thanks, likes, and dislikes? We'd like to center that whole section. (see screenshot)

So what's the difference between thanks and like. Why would you use one but not the other? Seems to have both available would be a bit confusing.

Thanks is more aggressive than likes.

If you thank/like a post, the postbit dropdown doesn't work anymore. Looks like there is some javascript missing or something went wrong during the AJAX request. After refreshing the page it works again.

Looks like a nice mod! I have a wee issue though. I'm trying this on a test site at present, but I can not get the like, thanks or dislike buttons to display to give a user a thanks or a like. I've tried Button Management, but it's still not displaying?

So you have set up permissions for your usergroups in Button Management? Maybe try editing each button and saving and see.
