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Original file removed, replaced with patched files including search fix (some admins noticed hackers attempting to use outdated code to exploit search in attempt to gain administrator password or similar).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

  • 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

Issues

I've just noticed a problem on my side. When I click thanks on a user it shows up as thanks: 1 for everyone.. then when I go into a thread that has a few people the thanks below the image doubles for every user..

So If i was 1: there would be one thanks, 2: post thee would be two thanks, 3: post there would be 3 thanks.. if it's not clear I'll attach a photo.

Thanks for your help!

However, I need to make it clear by steps:

1. uninstall the current product.
2. modify the script as your post.
3. install again.

Right?

I don't know how to "check if all the alterations made by the script are in you db. If not, you need to change the install accordingly.". Please show me the best way to do. Sorry becuase my bad English!

Many thanks and Happy New Year!

Images don't display

It seems that vB now uses postbit_legacy by default, but this mod is coded for the postbit format.

You can either switch to postbit, or follow this terrific post by rbu.
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showp...6&postcount=70

I'll repost what they said:

If you are using Legacy...

Have you uninstalled the old version? If you have, then you should be able to install as per normal but you won't have your old thanks

If you haven't then its steps 2 & 3 above

BACKUP your database before doing any changes.

Same Problem as others here. Interestingly enough this product was abandoned as supported the minute it was released. Because all bugs are user created, and have nothing to do with the product itself. Although im not sure how i could have created this bug since all i did was install the product as instructed. (shrug) Still one of my favorite hacks to bad it doesnt work all that great in 4.0
