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

I installed 4.5 and it is working great, thank you.

I voted (Excellent at the top), is this instant voting feature comes with the new vb or is it a hack?

show thanks within post

I wanted to know the modifications needed to show up the thanks within the post itself rather than outside in a box

something like this:



Thanks.

btw, the mod is fantastic.

Thanks for the great mod, however I get the following error when trying to find all the thanks posted by a user:

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

Anyone else get this?

I am using: VB 3.6.8

Hi being fairly new to all of this editing a template scares me

in postbit AND postbit_lagacy:

find:
--------------------------------------------------------------------
$vbphrase[posts]: $post[posts]
--------------------------------------------------------------------

AFTER place this:
emphasis on the "AFTER place this" do i press enter and place it in a new line or do i add it directly after the las character?

any link or reading on editing templates would be much appreciated

It doesn't matter. The system doesn't read the spaces or carriage returns in the code.

This:


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

is the same as this:


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

and this:


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

I usually do 3 carriage returns and enter the code which a open line above and below so the code is easy to spot if I ever need to modify it. Hope that helps.

I'm using VB 4.2 and cannot find any of the lines of code in the template files, such as:


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

Actually, I cannot find any of the codes in the Instructions.txt file. Is this hack not compatible with VB 4.2?
