Post Thank You Hack

STAFF EDIT:
Note - The mod author has been unreachable for some time, but the vbulletin.org community has stepped up to provide a number of individual fixes over the years. ForceHSS, Hippy, and Seven Skins have all combined many of these fixes into product files.

ALL CREDIT STILL GOES TO ABE1 And this is still 'his' mod. Please still mark the mod as installed if you use any version of it.

That said so you don't need to apply a dozen + small fixes yourself you should consider downloading one of the updated packages below:

Hippy has one in this post.

AND / OR

ForceHSS has one in this post.

AND/OR

Seven Skins has one in this post.


- Original File Specs: post_thanks_7_82.zip (26.4 KB, 24844 downloads) - Original file removed, replaced with patched files including search fix (some admins noticed hackers attempting to use outdated code to exploit search in attempt to gain administrator password or similar).
- There are five total patched versions available, some with and without the search fix - I've replaced the main file with the patched versions... please be sure to download and install the correct version, the main mod post contains links to additional information and patched files!
- If Abe1 returns he can request these packages be removed.


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
  • Places all Thanks into one small box

I use version 5.4.20 with vbulletin 4.2.2 I get these errors:

Warning: Illegal string offset 'postid' in ..../includes/functions_post_thanks.php on line 137

Warning: Illegal string offset 'post_thanks_amount' in .../includes/functions_post_thanks.php on line 143

And if I deactivate the product I get this error:

Fatal error: Call to undefined function thanked_already() in /home/XXX/public_html/includes/class_postbit.php(345) : eval()'d code on line 168

I put this ini_set('display_errors', 'Off'); below <?php in the config.php file and the error continues. Please appreciate your help.

You can say that, but when installing on some forums with 4.2.2 but with lower versions of PHP function as normal.

Which ones would you recommend?

I was going to ask if it was possible to have a dislike for this modification but I guess there's no support anymore.

HAs anyone seen this in the ABOUT tab of the user profile?

I've seen this in 3 different users, and some of them have zero liked posts. How did this number get in there?

Also, I googled this number, and it is the number equivalent of the NOBODY user, which gives me pause for concern. User NOBODY is whom my apache installation runs.

Anyone else see this?

Back on page 165 I asked how I can make the thank you block smaller and some one directed me to this thread which worked great: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=194553. Force did some changes on my forum and it reverted back to a huge block under the posts that looks absolutely terrible. I tried to do the same fix but now I get this error:


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

Does anybody know how I can fix this please?

Hi Hippy, thanks for offering to look at it. I just followed this thread's instructions: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=194553 After I added all the code I got the above error.

Never mind I see where the problem is, it says to add the code to the post_thanks_postbit and it should read Replace the code. Working now.

Yes, the thumb is barely visible, very small. I was wondering if anyone has used anything else?

Thanks
