Post Thank You Hack 4.5




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 granted 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

My error is strangely different.. I am getting the thanks box directly under the expanded thread view, and then multiple thanks boxes...

Please advise... also... where would I change the font for the text, and what if I did not want the thanks to be removed.. is there a simple modification for that?

Ok. correcting the code fixed the location issue... still, I am interested in disabling the 'remove thanks' link. Is it possible to change the code slightly to disable this? Once thanked I do not desire for the thanks to be removed.

Uh...thanks. *smiles*

You can delete the option in the template. Go to your templates and edit the post_thanks ones removing that option.

Hey Abe1!

Great Hack!!

But there's one Problem... the option to turn the Hack in specific Forums off is for our purposes senseless.
We want to turn the hack only in some Forums on and not off.
Otherwise we have to exclude 200 Forum IDs.....

Do you have an Idea?

Edit says:

I solved the problem by myself... this Hack ROCKS!!

Can you make this go through the usual reputation process (i.e. reputation_add_process) so that reputation rules are followed as well as code from other plugins run as well (such as uCash)
