OK The problem with Tasking Mickey was that he was using the standard postbit, not legacy. I updated the instructions above for use with either the regular postbit or postbit_legacy.

On the plus side it's another forum I can confirm this works on.

I don't see a reason to limit the likes thus farI want them to use the heck out of it.

Not sure what that has to do with this article? The "Post Thank You" mod can be configured for unlimited thanks/liking.

First, thank you for sharing.

I'll test this on my test board, but thought I'd ask here first in case you might have any insight...

I'm currently running a modified version of Post Thanks similar to this. I've wanted to add a Like button to my site and was thinking of editing Post Thanks again...similar to what you have provided.

Do you think there would be any issue with, let's say... a site running (an unedited) Post Thanks and your Like system simultaneously?

TIA!

I would strongly suggest installing the "Post Groan Mod" also by Abe1 and turning that into a Likes system since both "Thanks" and "Groan" were made to run simultaneously.

It would need some custom coding- not something I've tried.

I was just about to mention that, if your forum has lets say, 100 members, and you import the likes system, something like here, it would show

Likes (12): Tasking Mickey, Bird0Prey5, Lynne, Princetoon and 15 others

The 15 others, would show the other people who liked that post, it'd be much better, since it won't take up the whole post with like 20 usernames in the like box.

BUT don't do that if you have any designs on moving to vB4 as there is no "Groan" equivalent for vB4.

Maybe eventually but I don't normally use 4.1.4 and never even knew there was a Thank You hack for it. I've got other things on my plate right now. If/when I do I will post a notice here. If anyone else does before me feel free to post here and I'll link it in the first post.

Please note that this will not work (properly) for vb 4.x.x versions as post thank you hack has phrase changes and plugin changes which are different from 3.8x version.
I am only making a note as you have posted on post_thanks vb4.0x version
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showt...31666&page=110

example: There is no plugin with hook postbit_display_start (instead there is postbit_display_complete)

Oh wow... very sorry about that. I posted in the wrong thread. . I have deleted the post to avoid confusion.

I will take a look at the VB4 version as soon as I get a chance.

I have also updated the link and version number in this thread because it was also linking to the 4.x version.

Would probably have to pass on that Kevin but thanks.

FYI to all- Paul has reported the bug preventing the "Liking" of articles here on vb.org is fixed.
