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Original file removed, replaced with patched files including search fix (some admins noticed hackers attempting to use outdated code to exploit search in attempt to gain administrator password or similar).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

It works in 4.1.10, but not in my other forum which is 4.1.9. I'm confused.

Are you trying to upload php file from admincp?

Upload the xml file from admincp and the other files you can upload it using one of the FTP programs.

When you install the vb script, How did you upload the files to your website?
In same way you can upload the mod files

For example, I am using LeapFTP program
http://www.leapware.com/download.html

Also, you can use (File manager) in your CPANEL

template seems stock
are you using postbit_legacy
your style is edited
and there is other code to make the surround
was this template or the postbit_legacy edited ...

need to find the code they are using and add it to your post thanks so it will match your styles

whats the name of the style.. and or who made it

@
WoodChuck'r
ftp is what you use to get files to your server like the board files..
the xml file in the mod zip file is the only thing that goes through the admincp import product
the error about is because you are trying to upload files through there

and you can not import the product xml file UNLESS you upload the mod files to your ftp..

hope you got it now

if not feel free to shoot me a pm
