Importer from Abe's Thanks mod (vB3 / vB4) and vBSEO "Likes" now available in Lite version!



Major Features: Lite

Require a Button Click: Allows you to hide the content of a post, or hie an attachment, until the person clicks a button on the post.

Statistics: Shows the top 5 people for; Giving / Receiving button clicks.

Collapsable postbit stats: Shows how many button clicks a person has given, received etc in the postbit. Admins can determine what statistics can show in the postbit to control sizes etc. The postbit is also collapsable.

Admin Permissions: Control things such as who can click buttons, require button clicks, what shows in postbit, what options can run concurrently, per forum permisions etc.

Reputation: Add / Remove Reputation for each of your button clicks.

Notifications: Receive alerts when a member clicked on one of the buttons for one of your posts.

Import Thanks: Import script to import "thanks" from Abe's [AJAX] Post Thank You Hack on vBulletin.org. It will work with both vB3 and vB4 versions of this mod.

Import Likes: Import script to import "likes" from vBSEO.


Major Features: Pro

Infinite Buttons: Ability to create new buttons to press! No longer do you need to be limited by Thanks / Like / Dislike.

Auto Collapse Posts: Collapses a post so it doesnt show up by using a formulae for button clicks of your choosing.

User Postbit Config: Lets users decide what postbit stats they want to see.

Additional permissions: Un-click a button. Control how many stats show on the statistics page, set permissions per subforum.

Integrated Controls: You can now integrate the button clicking controls into the post footer, like many of you requested.

Buttons in First Post Only: This allows you to only make the first post thankable. If you forum is based around news, releases or anything similar this will allow your users to easily see the quality of the thread in question.

Button Click Anonymity: This feature will be extremely helpful to forums who like the idea of a "dislike" button, but don't like the drama it brings. Now you can set certain buttons to be anonymous - no one will see who clicked.

Post Colour Thresholds: Ever wanted an easy way for members to tell if a post is helpful or trash? Colour thresholds let you change the colour of posts depending on how many clicks of a button they receive. Members can now see at a glance whether or not a post is helpful, interesting or pointless.

Please ensure you're using an FTP program and not the File Manager in cPanel, and drag & drop the entire contents of the upload folder to the folder your forums are in

I use WinSCP, and after reloading the files again, still not working. not sure what to tell you. This is not my first rodeo at adding hacks to vb.

Not sure this will be helpful in your situation.

I use a local test board, when I have problems like this. Having the server local allows me to see what the server response was to the client submit. I then add a php backtrace to the source script on the offending submit -- until I find where the application went wrong.

--------------------------------
Just in case

Check Dragonbyte's support site. You may find other users that have a similar problem.
Try not to run alpha software in a production environment.

If you do have a local server environment let me know and we can easily find out what is going on.

Good Luck

No live demo, but do you have a screen shot of this? Is there a website you can point to that's using this mod in this way?

Thanks Ozzy, I see it now.

So looks like the the whole thing is tossed in the signature (after_content) area. I was thinking the buttons should be in the actual postfoot, like next to the "report post" icon (in the same line). Only the "who clicked buttons" would be in the signature area, and it should be collapsable.

Short of manually doing all the installation steps, you may wish to edit your PHP configuration to allow scripts to override the timeout - that way, you can leave it running until it finishes

Please try clicking Repair Cache and then try the interface again.

Enable "Can Require Click" for your usergroup, and edit the post in question using the Go Advanced form to "Require Thanks to see content"

Do you still not need to put the text inside the hide bb code but doing what you say here only works if you put it inside the bb code first and only if you have added it to your Custom BB Codes. Or am I wrong and you have another way it auto goes in?

The Pro version has [HIDE] code support, but it does not require custom BB Code to work.

Then you may have another mod conflicting, as by default it works as a virtual BB Code.
