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.

"Please upload the files that came with the product before installing or upgrading!"

I uploaded them 3 times already, and I get that message when I try to import the product. Do I have to chmod something?

DragonByte Tech 29 May 2010 03:13

Just a little heads up so you guys don't feel abandoned or anything, The coder (Fillip) has gone to sleep cause it's 5am in norway, but he'll check into any issues you're having first thing tomorrow

Corey, best bet is to make sure the files/folders were uploaded in the correct place etc.

Same error on vb4

Installer problem has been fixed.

Also, a major bug has been fixed: Users who did not have a usergroup permission that does not exist in Lite would render this mod non-functional for their posts.

Please re-download the zip file and re-upload the files.

Does this mod allow import of the other Thanks Mod currently available at vb.org?

DragonByte Tech 29 May 2010 12:43

The Pro version includes a free importer from the Post Thank You v7.7 :)

We're also investigating creating an import script from the other one made by... um.. some other guy. I forgot.
One of our customers use it :p

mokonzi 29 May 2010 12:59

I'll have to have a serious think over it, as I wouldn't want users to lose what they've thanked, etc.

Does it integrate into vbActivity as well?

DragonByte Tech 29 May 2010 13:01

Rarely do our products integrate right off the bat, we prefer to listen to the feedback of you guys to figure out just how you want it to integrate :)
Do you want it to integrate in any particular way beyond "points for thanks given/received", "points for likes given/received"?

NarutoFTW 29 May 2010 13:46

Could I upgrade from this mod?
Saving all my user's thank/posts?
