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Original file removed, replaced with patched files including search fix (some admins noticed hackers attempting to use outdated code to exploit search in attempt to gain administrator password or similar).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

Anyone know how to change the text from "Thanked x Times in x Posts" to say "Thanks Received: x" in a users profile next to their post.

This version of the modification is for vB4.

You need the older 3.8 version - check Abe1's profile, it's listed there.

Funny, I was thinking the same thing myself.

To the original poster, if you provide more details about your problem, you will find many nice people on this forum that will help you.

I don't know about anyone else but I'm really confused.

I downloaded the zipped file with all the files and folders in it and I'm ready to install it on 4.1.3 but until I download something else, or make some changes somewhere it's not going to be compatible? I see there are extra files to download in the thread but they are just single PHP files with no instruction on what to do with them.

I'd love to install this mod on my board but being relatively non technical ( I barely manage) I have no idea what to do.

Is there any chance of a fresh thread with full instructions & a new zip file to download for those wanting to install on 4.1.3?

Thanks,

The idea of it being morally questionable to be paid for ones work seems odd to me, most people do not work for free, including yourself in all likelyhood

You have missed the point. You have included the importer which reads abe1's tables into your paid version with the intention to make more profit. You know that abe1 has canceled support and that many of us are using his hack already.
To get paid for own work is out of question. Compared to your free version it is almost no effort to write a script that reads tables. Almost no effort to have most profit. Profit made because of the fact that we are using abe1's tables already.

If I am wrong than just provide the importer at your free version as well.
Anything else is pointless arguing to me.
If you would provide the importer at the free version as well, your profit will decrease. I know that and you know that and hence it is available at your paid version only
