Importer from Abe's Thanks mod (vB3 / vB4) and vBSEO "Likes" now available in Lite version!



Major Features: Lite

Require a Button Click: Allows you to hide the content of a post, or hie an attachment, until the person clicks a button on the post.

Statistics: Shows the top 5 people for; Giving / Receiving button clicks.

Collapsable postbit stats: Shows how many button clicks a person has given, received etc in the postbit. Admins can determine what statistics can show in the postbit to control sizes etc. The postbit is also collapsable.

Admin Permissions: Control things such as who can click buttons, require button clicks, what shows in postbit, what options can run concurrently, per forum permisions etc.

Reputation: Add / Remove Reputation for each of your button clicks.

Notifications: Receive alerts when a member clicked on one of the buttons for one of your posts.

Import Thanks: Import script to import "thanks" from Abe's [AJAX] Post Thank You Hack on vBulletin.org. It will work with both vB3 and vB4 versions of this mod.

Import Likes: Import script to import "likes" from vBSEO.


Major Features: Pro

Infinite Buttons: Ability to create new buttons to press! No longer do you need to be limited by Thanks / Like / Dislike.

Auto Collapse Posts: Collapses a post so it doesnt show up by using a formulae for button clicks of your choosing.

User Postbit Config: Lets users decide what postbit stats they want to see.

Additional permissions: Un-click a button. Control how many stats show on the statistics page, set permissions per subforum.

Integrated Controls: You can now integrate the button clicking controls into the post footer, like many of you requested.

Buttons in First Post Only: This allows you to only make the first post thankable. If you forum is based around news, releases or anything similar this will allow your users to easily see the quality of the thread in question.

Button Click Anonymity: This feature will be extremely helpful to forums who like the idea of a "dislike" button, but don't like the drama it brings. Now you can set certain buttons to be anonymous - no one will see who clicked.

Post Colour Thresholds: Ever wanted an easy way for members to tell if a post is helpful or trash? Colour thresholds let you change the colour of posts depending on how many clicks of a button they receive. Members can now see at a glance whether or not a post is helpful, interesting or pointless.

The way we've got it set up, it only displays the clickable buttons for posts that have not previously received a click.

you set your click buttons in post footer or after the post?


i was able to see this mod in pro and it looks like if buttons are set in post footer it still shows the header of the user list box after the post even if no one clicks this mod's buttons, see screenshot below

That option disables the header for all posts including the ones with clicks.
I was hoping to hide it only to posts with no clicks.



And by the way even if you choose that option to disable the header, part of it (horizontal line) is still visible.

I think you should hire a freelance developer to add what you want. Nothing I requested was ever implemented. DBTech products are good but they lack polish unfortunately.

Thanks Mark! But sig placement is not an option for us, we've modified sig area to only allow 400x100px display, anything in excess will be cropped.

Anyway, we've decided to stick with Abe's version. We'll just use the $40 to pay someone to fix the issues we're having with Abe's and probably ask some minor update as well.

Whatever suits your needs but if you have a large board I would recommend you this product over abe's. Just hire a coder to fix the issues, it's worth it.

The Pro version gives you 4 options on where to place the "cloud." We chose below signatures. You can also choose above signatures, and above/below posts. Also, I am sure you could limit the size of signatures without affecting the cloud, if you chose to display it in the signature. Use the signaturecontainer class rather than the signature class in your CSS class selector.
