Post Thank You Hack 4.5




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 granted 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

Version 2.0 GOLD released.

If you are using a 2.0 beta version, just upload the Product XML. You may want to re-do the template edits since they were changed a little.

If you are using 1.10 now, just upgrade your forum normally, and install this hack like it's a FRESH installation. You wont over write all the thanks that are there already.

There were no new features added to this version.

When I try to upload the product xml I get this error. I have it set to yes to overwrite.

Database error in vBulletin 3.5.0:

Invalid SQL:

INSERT INTO setting
(varname, grouptitle, value, defaultvalue, datatype, optioncode, displayorder, advanced, volatile, product)
VALUES
(
'post_thanks_on_off',
'post_thanks',
'1',
'1',
'boolean',

MySQL Error : Duplicate entry 'post_thanks_on_off' for key 1

It was a bit long so I took out the middle part of the error.

Hmmm.... This seems like a vB error. It should check to see if settings are in already. The settings are being added using the xml style. Try to remove the settings from the xml and re-upload.
