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Original file removed, replaced with patched files including search fix (some admins noticed hackers attempting to use outdated code to exploit search in attempt to gain administrator password or similar).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

Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

4. SAVE.

5. IMPORT product-post_thanks.xml in Add Product.

BOOOO:

This product is not compatible with version 4.1.1 of vBulletin. (Compatible starting with 4.0.0 beta 4 / Incompatible with 4.1.0 alpha 1 and greater)

-----------------------------

never mind!! fixed it... you should edit the FIRST post with the

"<dependency dependencytype="vbulletin" minversion="4.0.0 beta 4" maxversion="4.1.0 alpha 1" />" to 4.1.99 edit to make it work with 4.1.1 so that way i didnt have to search 83 pages. =]

this is awesome and exactly what i was looking for!

On my forum, the links to the "Thanked" posts do not work.

Is anyone else experiencing this?

Not to hijack the thread or anything, but since this is unsupported and the coder is MIA you guys might want to try this as an alternative: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showt...ghlight=DBTech

To the best of my knowledge it does everything abes does and more.

Full Disclosure: This is my mod =P

Seems like friendly advice and others have posted the same in this thread, same advice I've been handing out tbo. This was the original "thanks" mod if I remember correctly... I wish some had time to support their mods it would help the community more imo.

vbseo has an amazing addition in its latest version called "likes" it can inport your thanks from multiple systems. Amazing and very fast. Plus is has histories in profiles. We had over 500k thanks that transfered flawlessly.

Check it out on vbseo website. I am a customer like everyone else, but this was a very welcome change on my forum.

Is there the possibility that a new version is displayed thanks to the users made but in the posts that they did?
Something like this right now the vBSEO, which shows how many thanks you have received and what thread.

Thanks.

Don't you have to get the Pro version to get all that Abe's has, though?
