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Original file removed, replaced with patched files including search fix (some admins noticed hackers attempting to use outdated code to exploit search in attempt to gain administrator password or similar).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
  • Uses only ONE query every time you view a showthread page!
  • Users can't thank twice
  • Option to not allow users to thank their own post
  • Guests don't see 'thanks' button
  • Counts how many thanks a user gives
  • Counts how many thanks a post gets
  • Shows how many thanks a user gave in every post of his
  • Shows how many thanks a user gave in profile
  • Shows how many thanks a user got
  • Shows how many posts or a user are thanked
  • Shows info in profile
  • Search for a users thanked posts
  • Search for all thanked posts
  • Administrator can remove all Thanks from a single post
  • Users can remove their own Thanks
  • Turn on and off hack totally
  • Turn on and off hack for only some forums
  • Option to turn off hack for all but the first post of a thread
  • Option to turn off hack for all but the first post of a thread in specific forums
  • Option to turn off hack view of date for specific or all forums
  • Option to add to post count when someone clicks 'thanks'.

I'm running VBulleting 4.2

I just figured out how to do this !!

Use the first and third edit on this post:
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showp...7&postcount=35

And for the second edit use this:
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showp...&postcount=124


Still want to figure out how to remove the blank area padding at the bottom of the box,.. will trade above info for needed info



edit to add all edits below for reference:



Change post_thanks_box template to:


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




In Admin CP -> Plugin Manager, edit the plugin: Post Thank You Hack on hook: postbit_display_complete

Find:

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

and replace with:

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



how to force to bottom of post box and add right above siggy,.. in postbit legacy template

find

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

add above

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

Of course it still shows up just above edit statement if applicable, but I rather have the box on the bottom but above siggy area. This was the easiest way for me.

Find the following in function fetch_thanks_bit (around line 218).

Add a space after the comma in the quotes and it should do the trick...

I installed that file, and when the product page refreshes, I can't find the product anywhere. What is the exact name of the product? How can I troubleshoot this? Thanks.

Ah, I didn't know there were additional files. Fixed. Thanks!

A few things:
1) The "Thanks" button is on the far left. Can I move it just to the left of the "Edit Post" so it is more visiable, and perhaps add a small icon next to it to make it stick out?
2) For the "Thanks x times in x posts", can I have this shown only when they have been thanked at least once? 90% of members probably won't get a thank you, so it is not worth having for everything until they get thanked.

Other than that, excellent mod. Thanks again!

move thanks button
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showp...postcount=1842
the icon should be there if your images are in the correct dir..
make sure you all the images to your custom style dir
youll need a vb:if condition so the thanks will not show for those that did not give or recieve thanks..

Thanks for the move, worked great.

As for the images: I uploaded the files as directed. Do I need to copy the images to somewhere? Where exactly do I need to copy them to?

As for the vb:if condition: what will the condition be such that you have to have at least 1 thank you for it to show?

Thanks again!

do you have a custom style ?
well it would be something like images/styles/custom_name)/images/buttons
default is images/buttons/
something to that affect ...
where every you have them now you need to figure out where your buttons folder is and add them there for the style your using
