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Original file removed, replaced with patched files including search fix (some admins noticed hackers attempting to use outdated code to exploit search in attempt to gain administrator password or similar).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 got
  • Shows how many posts or a user are thanked
  • Shows info in profile

This looks like you are uninstalling. and that it does not have that table. Try reinstalling then uninstall.
Tried that and still got DB error... will retain this mod as I know you are working hard on fine tuning it --- and I truly appreciate your work. Thanks on behalf of all who use it -- I can imagine you are swamped with comments.

Thanks again.

I think this is script is very BETA yet. You should update the version. But i think when all bugs are gone, this is a great addon.

BTW, thank you for this wonderful mod
You may be missing some template hooks. please compare with original and see what you are missing.

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

See attachment, any ideas?
Very weird. This would have happened back in one of the vb versions when they first came out with the template hooks. I had them fix it and everyone would have this problem if it still existed. Do you have any edited php files?

Do you have more then one style?



I used to offer free support to install on your web site. If you want me to install on your site now, and make sure you have a 100% working hack, it will cost $50. I will guaranty it works 100% after I install or no payment. If though there really is a bug in my code, then installation will be free. Many of you may have a conflicting hack, or a your own edit you once did. I can't figure out most problems without seeing what your site is like. For this I will charge. If it ends up as a bug in my code, (does not included conflicting errors with other hacks) then you will not be charged. PM me for details. I'd love to help you all but time has me constrained.

Database error posters ensure that all the .php files are installed as I almost missed the upload of the one that goes just in the root directory.

Excuse me? There have been no proven bugs. Anything I found so far is someone not installin correctly or updating the files. No bugs yet found.

They both move since they are both using that plugin. You can change the order that the plug-in execute though and get the thanx button to the left of the blog button. The plug-in name it something like postbit_complete.
