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Original file removed, replaced with patched files including search fix (some admins noticed hackers attempting to use outdated code to exploit search in attempt to gain administrator password or similar).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

  • 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
  • Places all Thanks into one small box
  • Uses only ONE query every time you view a showthread page!

  • Counts how many thanks a post gets
  • Shows how many thanks a user gave in every post of his

I downloaded the post_thanks_ version_7.84+with_and-without-integrated_postbit_box_collapse.zip moved it over to the server it needs to be on and from what I took from the instructions I then just needed to add this as a plugin on vbulletin but I wasn't exactly sure how to upload the XML file as that wasn't in the folder that I was told to download.

This may seem so easy to you guys but any help will be very much appreciated.

Thanks!
AdminCP>Plugins&Products>Add new plugin.

Upload the XML from there.

If I click on the add new plugin there is no where to add the XML however the XML can be added in add a product.

On the add new plugin page it asks me for some PHP code which I am not sure where to find.

Try selecting manage products and down the bottom select 'add/import product' this takes you to the import page where you can select the XML file.

Hi,

Yes I've done all that and now what seems to happen is the 'thanks' shows up under the posts but there isn't an image next to the text and once the button has been clicked it disappears and doesn't register the thanks. This makes me think somethings not linking up properly?

I keep geting this when trying to install 7.88:

The following dependencies were not met:
This product is not compatible with version 4.2.5 of vBulletin. (Compatible starting with 4.1.12 / Incompatible with 4.2.4 and greater)
I tried changing it to:

<dependency dependencytype="vbulletin" minversion="4.2.0" maxversion="4.2.5" />

But it didn't work. Any solutions?

The max version is the minimum version for which the incompatibility will begin. Try setting this to 5.0 instead of 4.2.5.

Yeah that helped. However. 7.88 seems incompatible with the Recent Thanks add-on?

I don't know...I've always used DBTech's thanks products.

Hello, I have two questions:

1) The 7.84+ is the only version that works perfectly in vB 4.2.5?
2) How I can change the image size of the left of word "Thanks"?. For default is 16x16 pixels...


Regards.

Is it possible to hide this hack for some usergroups? Some of my users dont like it very much, but I don't want to deinstall it.

This plugin probably is not compatible with php 7.1. When I upgrade my site to php 7.1, thanks buttons give an error starting with "[]operator not supported for strings online..."

I hope it will be resolved.
