Post Thank You Hack 7.7


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.

Doesnt work as last option is :

Do you want to show a user's post thanks stats in their profile? (These stats come along with links to search all posts that user gave thanks to and all posts of his/hers that got thanked by someone else.)

I guess utalking abt dis option :

This sets whether to use Markup usernames when showing who thanked a post. This can slow down a page load slightly.

Even this i did to yes n idnt work !

Any other solution ?

I get this error and other users get it as well when trying to make a thank you. This happened when I upgraded to this new version.

You do not have permission to perform this action. Please refresh the page and login before trying again.
See quoted text above.

What's the problem with me?I have 2 sites, one disabled problematic ajax and one enable all, but both of them has this problem.
Thank you in advanced
Once again, my question has no answer, my critical problem! can't use post thank you hack anymore, just a few thanked and it all died!
Now I can just click on the thanks button and seeing it disappear, nothing happen, no thanked counted, nothing is done. Then If I refresh that page, the thanks button appears again, so firm that it did nothing!
Help me, thanks for great mod
