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Original file removed, replaced with patched files including search fix (some admins noticed hackers attempting to use outdated code to exploit search in attempt to gain administrator password or similar).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 believe you mean "in the second post", i.e., post #2 at http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showp...92&postcount=2

That's fine, but I think you'll find that it's the first post.

No. It may be the first REPLY but it's the second post, aka post #2.

Sure:

First Post (aka the OP or thread starter)

Second Post (notice how the URL even says "postcount=2" and how it is labelled "#2"?)

Perhaps you somehow have a different view that I do, are you telling me you see a post that is labeled #1?

What I see is that the first post is labeled #2. When I said it is the first post in the thread, I mean that it's the first post. I didn't say the post labeled #1 - just that it's the first post.

I take it you actually see a post prior to #2?

Sorry to everyone for the off topic posts...but it has me curious now.

Yes, of course I see a post prior to #2: the original post or thread starter as I said above. And you see it to. Now please stop being obtuse and derailing the thread any further. I corrected you because I went to the first post looking for that "point 2" mentioned in your post and of course it wasn't there - because "point 2" is in POST #2, i.e., THE SECOND POST.

Sorry to be "obtuse." I wanted to give you every opportunity to explain your need to correct me when it's obvious that my instructions were perfectly good. Apparently, for some reason, you can't admit that post #2 is the first post in the thread. Perhaps if you don't feel obligated to do another post insulting me the thread won't be derailed any farther. However, if you just have to, go ahead and insult me again. Maybe it will feed your ego or whatever is going on here.

Ironically, we need both a THANKS and a GROAN button activated in this thread. Too bad the developer has run for the hills.

My apologies for my part in it.

By the way, for those looking for search capabilities - the vB4 version of this mod doesn't have search capabilities.

There is a sort of workaround - I posted about it here.

4) If you want to move the Thanx button to near the edit post button,
open template postbit
find

HTML Code:
{vb:raw template_hook.postbit_controls}and move it under

HTML Code:
<span class="postcontrols">
this causes an overlap when using vb4.03

On the bottom line, where it tells how many times Ii've been thanked, there's a problem. Instead of this line being aligned to the left, it's aligned to the right. How do I fix this? Anyone else have this problem?
