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.

When I click on the Thanks button, it disappears and returns nothing. Refreshing the page I saw it did nothing.
What's the problem with me?I have 2 sites, one disabled problematic ajax and one enable all, but both of them has this problem.
Thank you in advanced
Hi guys, these just a small problem,

follow these of my step that i just figure out why these happen to alot of forum.

1) if your board is not fresh install vb3.7.2, but up grade from vb3.xx to the lastest version, then this happen, ok now we solve this, looking for skin default from the vB3.7.2 and copy everything in headinclude and replace into headinclude of the current skin that you use, then you be fine,
i belive there not just this problem, alot of more headache ahead...but you guys didn`t find out yet, good luck

Any way to get this to display to the left? Some users are complaining that they are used to the quick reply being there and I see their point.

Anyone who can direct me to the code change would be helping me out a great deal.

Solved, the problem was that by having the same location that vbexperience, this was hidden. Changing the location of vBexperience will solve the problem.

Greetings

Cool

I recently upgraded this hack from 7.4 to 7.7 and we have been experiencing only one problem with it.

is anyone else having this problem....

when the Thanks button is pressed the whole page refreshes and goes to the top of that post. This can be irratating at times when there are long posts and you are still trying to read other posts after that.

It used to stay at the same location on the page and the Thanks would just appear, I am not sure if this was considered a refresh or not, but was more convenient that way.

BTW... this is still a great hack regardless of this minor issue.

thnx,
~thenutthouse

I installed this in my forum. Great hack and our members liked it very much.
I dont see thanks button in the first post of any thread in any forum.

In Post thanks settings, we have
Only First Post = No

Should this be turned YES. Since the setting says "only" first post, I set it off. Because I wanted Thanks button on all posts including first post.

How do I go about setting this up ?

We have hack to display first post in all pages of the same thread. could this be causing a problem ?

thanks in advance for your help..

Installed this... very cool.

My best contributers really liked this mod. The rep system became useless for it's intended purpose(which is ok).

One question, how do I see a list of members ranked by their thankyou count - sort of how you can see the members ranked by posts or rep points in the member listing?

Can Thank You's be listed in the member listing.

(My apologies if this has been answered, I tried to search in this thread but found nothing. If it was covered, a link is all I need.)

Many thanks again!!
