Thanks hack was great...

Groan hack...evens things out a bit.

Installed.

AuroraStorm 21 Jul 2007 13:19

Dude, I have a question for you - just for kicks and giggles...

My posters love the groans/thank yous but they were wondering about a Post B***H Slap. Is that something feasible?

I told them I'd ask... :D

You can convert one of them if you edit the images and the phrases.

Version 3.3 (07/30/07):
  • Moved post thanks stats in postbit from hook postbit_userinfo_right to hook postbit_userinfo_right_after_posts. (for vb 3.6.8 and <3.6.6)
  • Released for all versions of vb 3.6.x

redlabour 03 Aug 2007 07:39

You have to change the plug-in execution order.

I think postbit_process

Luky 31 Aug 2007 14:37

Whats the phrase i enter to say the amount of times this user has been groaned at, i want to enter it in the postbit, i tried several phrases but cannot figure it out. Its not as simple as thank you hack.

Luky 31 Aug 2007 14:43

I think it is $post[post_groan_times]

Doc Ellis 24 Sep 2007 18:22

Another "thank you" for Thanks and Groan both. Very easy to install and use!

hi there,

i think this is a great hack, (fun and stuff)

i've installed both thanks and groan, but the info on the right hand side is replicated twice... any pointers how how to get rid of:
Thanks: #
Groans: #

see attachment

many thanks

Roxie 11 Nov 2007 07:29

Clicking the button refreshes the page but isn't adding the groan. The button is linking to http://www.site.com/showthread.php?d...roan_add...etc....

Should it be linking to http://www.site.com/post_groan.php?d...roan_add...etc....

Make sure your templates are up to date.

COBRAws 12 Nov 2007 02:06

I just thought about something that could be added to this hack (I dont actually use it in my forums, but I was browsing this thread and had this idea). If a post has X amount of groans, it could be automatically deleted or the main postbit thing be converted into a message saying "This post has been rated by the community as a bad post, if you still want to read it please click here" or something like that.

The admincp could have a few options so it can be selected how many groans would be needed to make the post disappear, which usergroups to be bypassed by this function and so on.

I've never seen this turn-arround for vbulletin and it would be handy. If it's already made, im sorry.

Keep up the good work Abe, I have installed most of your hacks-mods :) A quality coder indeed.

Not sure if I will make it but someone else can release an add on if they want.

Installed this on vB 3.6.8 using Default templates and already had the Thank You Hack working fine. Seem to go fine, Groan button is on the postbit, but when I click the button, the screen simply refreshes and both the Thank You and Groan buttons disappear from that post window; however, they still appear on post windows above and below that specific post. If I refresh the page, they reappear in the original window, but nothing is happening? If I click the Thank You button in that same window, everything works as expected. I tried reverting my postbit template, but that didn't help either.
Any advice?
Thanks,
KF

baz_kingfish 06 Feb 2008 19:20

hmmm....was hoping for some feedback on my issue noted above by now...does anyone have any idea why that is happening?

Bumping the thread is no the good idead and doesn't mean that we will run here and help you...
Try to clean your browser's cache and be shure that your vBulletins templates are up to date.

What are you talking about? This is the Groan thread, I didn't bump it anywhere. I simply asked for help again, and had the courtesy to put my previous post to insure whomever finally did reply knew what I was talking about.

As far as your recomendations, thank you, but been there and done that. Tried on several different computers with clean browser histories. This is a fresh vBulletin install from around January 2, 2008. Templates are up to date...and the Thank You hack works fine. It is the Groan hack with which I am having problems...it is currently disabled due to the problems stated in my original post.

What you have set for option "Integrate this hack with Post Thanks Hack?"
Did you try to disable Thanks hack?
Did you try to reupload the files?

Reuploaded Post_Groan.php to the forum root directory...that seems to have fixed it. Who would have thought files would not upload correctly....weird. :confused:

tqvn2004 28 Feb 2008 00:42

I have installed the Thank you hack version 7.2. And I tried to install this hack, but the plugin import stop abnormally (no successful report), and the groan button does not appear. Is this a incompatible issue? (for your information, I am using Vb3.6.2 Patch 2, with default template)

Thank you for an useful hack, by the way!

dancue 29 Feb 2008 21:44

This is concerning the following:

Quote:

Open template: navbar

find:
--------------------------------------------------------------------
<td class="vbmenu_option"><a href="search.php$session[sessionurl_q]" accesskey="4" rel="nofollow">$vbphrase[advanced_search]</a></td>
</tr>
--------------------------------------------------------------------

place AFTER:
--------------------------------------------------------------------
$template_hook[navbar_search_menu]
--------------------------------------------------------------------
My style, unfortunately, has the nav buttons in the header template. This is causing the search feature to not work.

Any Suggestions?

No, I am running my forum on dedicated server, and the PHP Memory Limit is 16MB.

It would be nice to have both thank and groan on one plugin, and user can enable or disable one or the other depending on their need. I think both of them are necessary for my site, which is discussing political and controversial stuffs :D

I dont want the same plug-in. Look as the difference in user who use one but not the other. It's resources if it's need to install and no being used.

Craig Ross 23 Mar 2008 01:35

is there a way to make this so you can only thank and groan at the same poster once in 24 hours but can still thank other posters, to make it harder for 2 posters to just inflate there counts by clicking eachother ?

Are you planning on releasing this for 3.7.x? Or have you already and I've missed it?

mblb 04 Apr 2008 00:13

It's not working properly for me. The buttons are showing but when you click one they just both disappear. They don't count. I am using 3.6.9 so maybe that's why?

unforsaken 06 Apr 2008 20:33

It works but you have lost some of the functioning with it like search options and such that you have with the Thank You system. But abe has stated that he will update this one he just wants to finish the Thank You button system first. And I have it on 3.7.0RC2

nikki712 15 Apr 2008 02:39

How can I move the button so that it's on the left of the edit button? My "thanks" and "groan" buttons are side by side, and members are getting "groans" by accident. Can anyone help me with this?

BTW, I love this hack and the "thanks" hack!

nikki712 15 Apr 2008 19:23

I would also like to know how to allow my mods and super-mods to be able to remove "groans".

inciarco 15 Aug 2008 16:25

Great Mod.

- It would be Nice if for a Future Update you can Add the Option (Yes/No) to Collapse the Posts that have been Groaned by X Number of Users, and only by Clicking an Expand Button the Post Could be Viewed by Users.

- I'd Also be nice that if an Admin or a Moderator Groans a Post, it'd be Automatically be Collapsed, no matter the number of Groans on that Post.

- Also would be Nice that a Message Appears on the Collapsed Posts that Says that "This Posts is Hidden (Collapsed) because Has Been Groaned Too Many Times (or by Too Many Users)"

By doing this, Bad (Groaned) Posts could not get the same Attention as Good Posts, and would be a Great Additional Functionality for this Excellent Mod.

For reporting Posts vBulletin already has the Option to Warn Moderatores and Admins, but to Hide Groaned Posts this Mod would be Great.

I Hope you can Add this Ideas to your Next Update.

My Best Regards.

:)

inciarco 18 Aug 2008 03:24

^^ In addition to the Previous Ideas, I'd like to share one more:

- When integrated with the Post Thank You Hack, another Yes/No Option can be added so that if a Moderator or a Administrator Clicks on the Thank You Button of the Post Hidden by other Users, the Post can be Displayed; in the case one Moderator Says Yes and other Moderator Says No, I think the Post Should Stay Hidden, but if an Administrator Click on the Thank You Button, the Post Should Always be Displayed no matter if a Moderator Click Groan to it.

- Would be Great that in an Option in the Hack at the Admin Control Panel, the User can Specify some Code to Introduce (Image, Table, etc) or to introduce the Default Message when a Post is Hidden because of too many Groans (greater than the Maximum Specified to Hide Posts).

If you can do that and the other ideas I shared with you in my previous Post, and this don't Add too much Weight (Too many Queries) to the Load of Pages, this can be a Great Success.

My Best Regards.

:)

Can this be used with thank you mod?

Soliloquy 01 Sep 2008 04:32

Installed and though the actual groaning is working fine, I'm having a couple of issues ever since installing it:

-I no longer see the "remove my thanks" link in the Thanks hack box, though "delete own thanks" is set to yes. Removing my own groan works fine though.
-the "remove all" link for Thanks hack is present but doesn't work. The page reloads but the thanks doesn't get removed.
- the Groan stats aren't displayed in the profile, though the Thanks stats are

soundbarrierpro 03 Sep 2008 19:47

Can I have both the groan and thank you hacks installed? Or will this create compatibility issues between the two?
