Importer from Abe's Thanks mod (vB3 / vB4) and vBSEO "Likes" now available in Lite version!



Major Features: Lite

Require a Button Click: Allows you to hide the content of a post, or hie an attachment, until the person clicks a button on the post.

Statistics: Shows the top 5 people for; Giving / Receiving button clicks.

Collapsable postbit stats: Shows how many button clicks a person has given, received etc in the postbit. Admins can determine what statistics can show in the postbit to control sizes etc. The postbit is also collapsable.

Admin Permissions: Control things such as who can click buttons, require button clicks, what shows in postbit, what options can run concurrently, per forum permisions etc.

Reputation: Add / Remove Reputation for each of your button clicks.

Notifications: Receive alerts when a member clicked on one of the buttons for one of your posts.

Import Thanks: Import script to import "thanks" from Abe's [AJAX] Post Thank You Hack on vBulletin.org. It will work with both vB3 and vB4 versions of this mod.

Import Likes: Import script to import "likes" from vBSEO.


Major Features: Pro

Infinite Buttons: Ability to create new buttons to press! No longer do you need to be limited by Thanks / Like / Dislike.

Auto Collapse Posts: Collapses a post so it doesnt show up by using a formulae for button clicks of your choosing.

User Postbit Config: Lets users decide what postbit stats they want to see.

Additional permissions: Un-click a button. Control how many stats show on the statistics page, set permissions per subforum.

Integrated Controls: You can now integrate the button clicking controls into the post footer, like many of you requested.

Buttons in First Post Only: This allows you to only make the first post thankable. If you forum is based around news, releases or anything similar this will allow your users to easily see the quality of the thread in question.

Button Click Anonymity: This feature will be extremely helpful to forums who like the idea of a "dislike" button, but don't like the drama it brings. Now you can set certain buttons to be anonymous - no one will see who clicked.

Post Colour Thresholds: Ever wanted an easy way for members to tell if a post is helpful or trash? Colour thresholds let you change the colour of posts depending on how many clicks of a button they receive. Members can now see at a glance whether or not a post is helpful, interesting or pointless.

Hello
I have a big problem of compatibility between Advanced Thanks / Like mod

and hide, whether with:

Marco1 Hide BBCODE
or vFCoders - Hide Hack v4 or another ...

I turn on the A T / L to hide no longer work, further buttons A T / L do not work either.

Would you an idea or would you have a "simple" hide, just reply that works with A T / L?

You need to configure it via the "Manage Buttons" screen found under "DBTech - Post Thanks" in the AdminCP.

If you do not see this menu, you need to add yourself to Super Administrators in config.php

This is because this mod implements its own "HIDE" BBCode. There's no way to make it work with other such "HIDE" mods at this time, unfortunately.

this is really sad news
I've fought three days for nothing

Can not rename it "Hide" to A T / L (in the source code) so that the two programs do not come into conflict?

Or Vbteck can create a compatible Hide: p
* go *

Thank you for the quick reply, although it saddens me

I run a big forum (5m+ posts) and was having horrendous locking issues with the vb_post table recently. I eventually figured out that the problem was in the joins it was doing with vb_dbtech_thanks_entry (possibly on threads with thousands of posts).

I haven't updated this plugin in maybe a year - has there been any database efficiency changes in the mean time to warrant me doing an upgrade now? (I don't want to lose previous likes if there is no changes, and I've made quite a few changes to customize the look and feel).

Hi,

I have installed the light version 3.1.7. and used the importer script. No issues....
We have a thread at which the first post has got :The Following 7,418 Users Say Thank You to ..... For This Useful Post:

When loading the thread it shows up a blank page. I needed to disable your mod because it's a very hot thread people want to have access.

The old post thank you hack from master abe displays it still well though.
ATM I have disabled both plugins.....

Any fix?

Thank you very much in advance.

File edits aren't really supported, but if you search for "hide" in all files you may be able to do it that way

Yeah, there have been multiple database efficiency changes - I'd strongly recommend you upgrade

Can you please verify that display_errors is set to On in your php.ini?
