Post Groan Hack 4.1


About this hack:
This hack was requested by users who like my "Post Thank You Hack". Both can run together on the same forum.

This hack adds a "groan" button to all posts. Any user can "groan" at a post. This will reduce the amount of "junk" posts your forum gets.

Features:
  • Uses vBulletin easy Product installer/updater/uninstaller
  • Uses AJAX technology so your users don't have to refresh when they groan at a post.
  • Places an easy to use button next to the edit button
  • Separate looks for postbit and postbit_legacy
  • Places all Groans into one small box
  • Uses only ONE query every time you view a showthread page!
  • Users can't groan twice
  • Guests don't see 'groan' button
  • Counts how many groans a user gives
  • Counts how many groans a post gets
  • Shows how many groans a user gave in every post of his
  • Shows how many groans a user gave in profile
  • Shows how many groans a user got
  • Shows info in profile
  • Search for a users groaned at posts
  • Search for all groaned at posts
  • Administrator can remove all Groans from a single post
  • Users can remove their own Groans (Option to turn it off)
  • Turn on and off hack totally
  • Turn on and off hack for only some forums
  • Option to turn off hack view of date all forums
  • Option to integrate hack with Post Thanks Hack
  • Ban Usergroups
  • Ban Users
  • Uses Phrases

Hi...I'm fairly new to this and I am trying to set up a new forum...and I just tried to install the groan hack and this is the message that came up over the header

Warning: fetch_template() calls should be replaced by the vB_Template class. Template name: post_groan_navbar_search in [path]/includes/functions.php on line 4591


can anyone tell me what this means and how do I fix it?
I am working with the 4.2.1 version

Thanks

I installed it yesterday. Its functional but the groan button style ( far right ) does not match my other existing buttons as per screenshot attached.


Any suggestions how to correct it would be much appreciated.


Also how would or could I change the word groan to another word of my choice. ?

you can edit temp "post_groan_button"

<a href="post_groan.php?$session[sessionurl]do=post_groan_add&amp;p=$post[postid]&amp;securitytoken=$bbuserinfo[securitytoken]" id="post_groan_button_$post[postid]"<if condition="$vboptions[disable_ajax] != 2"> onclick="return post_groan_give($post[postid], <if condition="$vboptions[post_groan_integrate]">true<else />false</if>);"</if> <if condition="$display_groan_image == 'none'">style="display:none"</if> rel="nofollow"><img src="$stylevar[imgdir_button]/post_groan.gif" alt="$vbphrase[post_groan_groan]" border="0" /></a>

For those who may try to use this on PHP 5.6.0 (or higher) and VB 3.8.11, you need to make some manual file edits to the /includes/functions_post_groan.php

Thanks to vbem2 who figured out the file edits for the Post Thank You mod here: https://www.vbulletin.org/forum/show...95#post2586995

But basically you open the file in a code editor.

FIrst look for:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

and replace it with


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Next search for:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

And replace it with


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

There should be 2 instances of the above.


That seems to do it for me.
