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

post_thanks.xml

I'm attempting to add this mod, however, it's asking me to import product post_thanks.xml into products and I don't see this file?

Please advise - thanks much in advance.

version 7.7


Nevermind I see the file and mod works great (so far) thanks!

Search in templates for:

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

You will find it in two templates:
  • postbit
  • postbit_legacy

Will look like:

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

Now you have to move:

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

some about ~20 lines up.

And put it right after:

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


So it will look like:

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

P.S. Note that

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

and

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

are different lines.

Also!

All other products' buttons which also use this hook will move left.

I was able to fix the depreciated errors, open "post_thanks.php",
replace


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

with


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

doesn't really replace or fix the depreciated code, but, at least it works.

How can I add the "Thanks" feature manually to a custom style?

I have a style that is very limited in functionality, reply and quote only. I would like to add the thanks link but I dont know what code I should add or where I should add it.

i.e. [code(s) to be called here] Thanks [/code to be called here]

thanks
