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Original file removed, replaced with patched files including search fix (some admins noticed hackers attempting to use outdated code to exploit search in attempt to gain administrator password or similar).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
  • Uses only ONE query every time you view a showthread page!
  • Users can't thank twice
  • Option to not allow users to thank their own post
  • Guests don't see 'thanks' button
  • Counts how many thanks a user gives
  • Counts how many thanks a post gets
  • Shows how many thanks a user gave in every post of his
  • Shows how many thanks a user gave in profile
  • Shows how many thanks a user got
  • Shows how many posts or a user are thanked
  • Shows info in profile
  • Search for a users thanked posts
  • Search for all thanked posts
  • Administrator can remove all Thanks from a single post
  • Users can remove their own Thanks
  • Turn on and off hack totally

  • Option to turn off hack for all but the first post of a thread
  • Option to turn off hack for all but the first post of a thread in specific forums

I have usergroup promotions scheduled when a user hits 5+ reputation count. I have included a plugin within the 'post_thanks_main_add_thanks_end' hook which i dont think is a problem.

The problem is the scheduled task dosnt seem to be promoting/demoting members which this MOD enabled.

Any ideas why?

Formatting problem in the postbit

Couple of formatting problems I'd appreciate some help with. When the hack is enabled to show in the postbit:

- the "Thanked x times in x posts" box exceeds the width of the postbit. Is there any way to change the format or the phrase? Would also like "Thanked" to be formatted in the same blue colour as in the "Thanks" box above.

- I'm using the Wy Flags add on but would like the Thanks/Thanked boxes to appear above the flags. Had a few tries at editing postbit_legacy without any success

Quick question, I've renamed everything to "Like" rather than thank you or thanks etc.

Tapatalk seems to still be picking up "Thank", is there any way to change this to like?

Thanks

Discovered a bug

Any user that has posted as a guest, or a user that has been removed from the forum and their posts still exist.. there is still an option below their post to Thank them. Obv thanking them results in a PHP error (PHP Warning: array_merge(): Argument #2 is not an array in ..../post_thanks.php on line 63)

Thanks

2 - Redone postbit userinfo layout.
3 - Added "post_thanks_postbit_colors" class so you can make display of thanks in postbit stand out. This class can be edited by editing "post_thanks_javascript" template of every style.
4 - Added collapse and scroll feature to postbit box.
5 - Added hide postbit box from guests.
6 - Hide thank you button from guest posts.

Install instruction are in the install package.
