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Original file removed, replaced with patched files including search fix (some admins noticed hackers attempting to use outdated code to exploit search in attempt to gain administrator password or similar).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

  • 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

I know a lot less than I know about this stuff. However, what I suggested should work for you. Switch to the style, then look at the source code and see where it thinks that image is. Then either edit the path in the style to the correct location or just copy the image to that spot.

No promises but I think that will work.

Hello and thank you for your work Abe1. I am also facing the non-existing "search" table as well. It looks like post_thanks.php is calling that table "search" that in version 4.0.2 does not exist anymore. If post_thanks.php is calling the DB, that table should be installed with the *.xml product. Not to mention that all files are in the right place uploaded. Somewhere in the *.php file still exists that DB query for a non-existing table.
Any help will be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
Cheers.

Just don't use select/deselect all until vBulletin fixes things. It is a minor annoynace but it's not all that frequently that you need to use select all.

Has anybody found the way to change the 'The Following User Says Thank You to xxx For This Useful Post: ' section to be reversed, like it is in Vbulletin 308? I think it looks much better that way..

Find and edit the following two phrases:
  • post_thanks_user_says (The Following User Says Thank You to {1} For This Useful Post
  • post_thanks_users_say (The Following {1} Users Say Thank You to {2} For This Useful Post

Thanks, it's not the phrase as such (ie, not the wording), but the format of the wording.

in vbulletin 3, the top line is in reverse, so it's separates the thread a bit better...

I think I should be editing the style, but any help appreciated :-)

I think you're interested in changing the font size/style of the line? If so, you might want to try my solution. (Just be sure to heed my cautions about it )

I have this mod installed on 4.0.2 PL3 and it's working perfectly. Haven't seen a single error. Also worked like a charm on PL1 and PL2 if that matters.

Good choice, seeing you can't get it to work.

Same here. I don't think I've ever had any huge problem with this mod.

It does work well, except for the fact that the search features aren't implemented but the add-on contains the old search code and somehow some members andf spiders are finding a way to trigger a search - this is what generates the error messages. Doesn't affect functionality of the add-on at all, though.
