Post Groan Hack 3.3


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
  • Cache Templates

You have to change the plug-in execution order.

Clicking the button refreshes the page but isn't adding the groan. The button is linking to http://www.site.com/showthread.php?d...roan_add...etc....

Should it be linking to http://www.site.com/post_groan.php?d...roan_add...etc....

I just thought about something that could be added to this hack (I dont actually use it in my forums, but I was browsing this thread and had this idea). If a post has X amount of groans, it could be automatically deleted or the main postbit thing be converted into a message saying "This post has been rated by the community as a bad post, if you still want to read it please click here" or something like that.

The admincp could have a few options so it can be selected how many groans would be needed to make the post disappear, which usergroups to be bypassed by this function and so on.

I've never seen this turn-arround for vbulletin and it would be handy. If it's already made, im sorry.

Keep up the good work Abe, I have installed most of your hacks-mods A quality coder indeed.
