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Original file removed, replaced with patched files including search fix (some admins noticed hackers attempting to use outdated code to exploit search in attempt to gain administrator password or similar).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!
  • Users can't thank twice
  • Option to not allow users to thank their own post
  • Guests don't see 'thanks' button
  • Counts how many thanks a user gives
  • Counts how many thanks a post gets
  • 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 a users thanked posts
  • Search for all thanked posts
  • Administrator can remove all Thanks from a single post
  • Users can remove their own Thanks
  • Turn on and off hack totally
  • Turn on and off hack for only some forums
  • Option to turn off hack for all but the first post of a thread
  • Option to turn off hack for all but the first post of a thread in specific forums

I agree with you 420% and will pass this on to my programmer to investigate further.

Thank you for your feedback.

One is obligated to read a mod's entire thread before installing it, and after you've done that you should know as much about it as we do. Or at least the last several pages anyway. That's especially important for this mod because the original version doesn't work at all.

Was merely referring to the fact that the original developer had gone MIA and was not updating it. Did not realize there were other people updating it. There's a lot here to read to catch up, still in the process.

Okay I'm catching up on reading everything here, thank you for your efforts on this plugin Hippy. So what it the most recent stable version and where do I get it? I see 7.82 in the beginning of the thread, however thought I saw a link to a 7.84 somewhere?

Thank you.

read the thread by poking the link
and forcehss also has his version
Never tested it but I am sure it's close because alot use it as well..

I install it on most sites I work on and there is nothing that (spambots or hackers) can use or have used as a breeding ground .. Other wise it would be posted and pulled

I worked hard keeping this mod alive along with everyone I mentioned in my post

to each it's own

Very funny Smirkley.

My Systems Admin confirmed it would be safe, just being very protective of our sensitive data, that's all.

So glad to be able to use this, been seeing good things about it.

Stuff like this really helps improve the overall positive energy of a complete community.

Very stoked and grateful.

no way to back up unless you know how to dabble in the tables in phpmyadmin
and if you update to the newest version of this mod
(DONE NOT UNINSTALL)
you will not lose anything ..
If you uninstall you will
if you go to a different mod you'll have to asked them
not sure about there importers
they also may be paid versions only

As you can see by looking at the top post the author has been Mia for quite a long time a few of us have been supporting this mod that's why it's not in the graveyard..

If you look T the first you'll see a link to the latest working mod up to vb3 pl3 or poke the link in my sig...
