What it is: Advanced Thanks/Like mod is designed to cut down on spam and increase useful content in your forum by using a peer encouragement system - users thank/like each others posts, which can give them access to attachements, post content etc, as well as encourage the thanked person to post more great content.

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.

I have personally installed this product on several sites, and never had any issues like that...but then none of those sites had previously run any other post thanks products either.

Did you actually uninstall the other mod, or did you simply disable it via the product's settings?

Thank you for the mod.

I got some questions.

First one is if is it possible to get rid of brackets where it says RECEIVED and GIVEN because I am using stats for received ones only so it doesn't make any sense.

Second, any chance to increase number of users with the highest "likes" from TOP 5 to TOP 10?

Thanks for your help.

I tried again to upgrade to v3.6.3 of this add-on.

At first, everything seemed fine with that latest hotfix.

However, users could not access the vBulletin blogs.

This is the error:


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

I reverted to my previous version, 3.5.1, and now everything works again.

Can you please clarify what you mean when you say users cannot access the blogs?

I believe this has already been hotfixed @ our site. Can you please try downloading the latest version from our site instead of here @ vb.org and let me know if that works?

I'll try to do that when I get a chance and report back. I don't have time to do that just now.

Thanks.

The vBSEO Likes importer has received multiple updates since 2015, any old issues are no longer valid.

If you are having problems with the importer, please try clicking Repair Cache under DBTech - Thanks before trying the import.
