Post Groan Hack 4.1


About this hack:
This hack was requested by users who like my "Post Thank You Hack". Both can run together on the same forum.

This hack adds a "groan" button to all posts. Any user can "groan" at a post. This will reduce the amount of "junk" posts your forum gets.

Features:
  • Uses vBulletin easy Product installer/updater/uninstaller
  • Uses AJAX technology so your users don't have to refresh when they groan at a post.
  • Places an easy to use button next to the edit button
  • Separate looks for postbit and postbit_legacy
  • Places all Groans into one small box
  • Uses only ONE query every time you view a showthread page!
  • Users can't groan twice
  • Guests don't see 'groan' button
  • Counts how many groans a user gives
  • Counts how many groans a post gets
  • Shows how many groans a user gave in every post of his
  • Shows how many groans a user gave in profile
  • Shows how many groans a user got
  • Shows info in profile
  • Search for a users groaned at posts
  • Search for all groaned at posts
  • Administrator can remove all Groans from a single post
  • Users can remove their own Groans (Option to turn it off)
  • Turn on and off hack totally
  • Turn on and off hack for only some forums
  • Option to turn off hack view of date all forums
  • Option to integrate hack with Post Thanks Hack
  • Ban Usergroups
  • Ban Users
  • Uses Phrases
  • Cache Templates

The Problem is that the Quicklinks of the Thanks and Groan Hack are not beneath each other.

One is at the Project-/ and one is at the Blogsection.

And BTW - why did you not merge the both Hacks and give us a Option in AdminCP :

1. Activate Thanks and disable Groan
2. Activate Groan and disable Thanks
3. Activate Thanks & Groan
4. Disable Thanks & Groan

Would make everything easier.

And BTW - it seems to make no Sense to add the Groanbutton before the Thanksbutton. Can you please switch the Executionorder so we donīt have to do it manually after every Update?
Have set Groan now to '6' and Thanks to '5'.

That's actually a great idea. My problem with this is the Post Thank you issue that I have. Because of the 3.7+, it doesn't show up under my mood nor do they update on the UserCP like it did before the facebook-like UserCp was created. You have to go into the user stats for that and my members like to see that number count under their names. any way of fixing that or has that already been done?

This would be a big strain for all users who only install the thanks hack (like me). The thanks hack is used like 10 fold compared to the groan hack.

Next version of post thanks and groan, they will be 2 and 3 respectively.

I guess the most are not knowing both. And i guess the Admins that have installed Groan are allways installing Thanks. And in anyway - i donīt think it is much more work to install a merged Version and make one click in the AdminCP.

Next version of post thanks and groan, they will be 2 and 3 respectively.
And what about the Problem in Quicklinks?

And what about the Problem in Quicklinks?
For all the plug-ins. So they are always close to each other and post thanks is always before groan.
