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Original file removed, replaced with patched files including search fix (some admins noticed hackers attempting to use outdated code to exploit search in attempt to gain administrator password or similar).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
  • Uses only ONE query every time you view a showthread page!

  • Shows how many thanks a user gave in every post of his
  • Shows how many thanks a user gave in profile
  • Shows how many thanks a user got
  • Shows how many posts or a user are thanked
  • Shows info in profile

  • Search for all thanked posts
  • Administrator can remove all Thanks from a single post
  • Users can remove their own Thanks

This looks like you are uninstalling. and that it does not have that table. Try reinstalling then uninstall.

I added the separator in the last minute. I didn't have a chance to fully test it. I will look into it.

I have the same issue but only with IE and compatibility mode enabled. It hides all the postbits.

I upgraded my board from 3.8.4 PL1 to 4.0.0 PL1. I had the mod install before but uninstalled all my mods at one point. When I install this it will not show in the postbit or postbit legacy. It will show the stats on the members profiles but not in the postbit.

BTW, thank you for this wonderful mod

Question Multiplying Thanks Buttons / Images

Installed and sorta working...

Seems the thanks images progressively multiply as you go down the page, the farther the post is down the thread the more thanks images appear...

Also displays the same behavior with the information in postbit see attachment thanks1

See attachment, any ideas?

Abe1 here is some screens from mine if you want to use them however I made the extra template edit to move the thanks button to the right instead of the left. Feel free to use these in your first post. Sorry no screen to view your thanks. I looked and didn't see the view your thanked post etc....

2 problems i can't solve:

1) There is no image showing up. Only the text "Thanks".
2) Why the thank you button is not in all threats? In some threats i have only a blank space.

I did what you said for moving the button over by the Edit button but the Thanks button didn't move. Any suggestions?

@Abe1
Yes, it does, I know theres have images to show because of that, but the thumb images not showing.. thumb and hover.. it doesn't mean anything to paste the css in here..
