Post Thank You Hack 7.7


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

Would have a better idea if you were to post your database error in [CODE] brackets.

I'll bump this since I'm having the exact same problem. After upgrading to vB 3.8.11 pages just freeze when Post Thank You Hack 7.7 is enabled.

Does anyone know how to get this working again? I have thousands of "Thanks" I don't want to lose.

Also just upgraded to 3.8.11 and am getting errors on showthread.php when the Thanks plugin is enabled.

Seems to be related to an array variable that doesn't exist after the upgrade.

Possible solution for vB 3.8.11 database error "Unknown column '0Array'"

Making the following changes caused the Post Thanks hack to start working again on my 3.8.11 installation. Note: I haven't tested extensively beyond seeing that I could give thanks and delete it from one other member's post.

GIANT DISCLAIMER: I am not an expert coder. I occasionally muck around in PHP and sometimes understand what I'm doing.

Apply this fix AT YOUR OWN RISK. I can't help if it doesn't work for you.

The changes below refer to Post Thank You Hack version 7.6 only.

1) Back up a copy of your original 7.6 file in /forum/includes/functions_post_thanks.php in case this gets all screwed up.

2) Open the file in your favourite editor.

3) Starting at line 178, replace this...


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

... with this:


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

4) A few lines below that (originally at line 189, but moved down due to the changes above), replace the this line ...


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

... with this:


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

5) A few lines below that (originally at line 193, but since moved further down due to the changes above), replace the this line ...


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

... with this:


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

6) Save & upload the file to /forum/includes.

Maybe it'll work for you too. Good luck!
