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.

It seems as though you need to ftp the files again and re-import the product overwriting the original.

Loll lots of threads to read in order to find a solution so,
Abe, i have the hack running fine in every template i have on the forum but for one particular one, it's not showing any stats??? I have the button that is out of place but this could be just because the "$template_hook[postbit_controls]" is out of place but as soon as you push it, their is no return on who said thanks and how many to show in posbit_legacy

Any idea why? I hope you're still looking at this version since the 4.0 is out lolll
Tks man

I'm having an issue whereas each time a person gets thanked, it's counted twice instead of once. For instance, if one person thanks another, it says the following two people have thanked you for xxx post. Anyone seen this before? Where can I go to fix it? I've been searching but haven't been able to find a solution.

I'm also having permissions problems where the forum gives me a page permission error after submitting a thanks about someone. I'm thinking that this mod is gonna have to go soon if there is no support here for it anymore...
