What it is: Advanced Thanks/Like mod is designed to cut down on spam and increase useful content in your forum by using a peer encouragement system - users thank/like each others posts, which can give them access to attachements, post content etc, as well as encourage the thanked person to post more great content.

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.

This hack seems to slow down my site.

I think you should modify the posts table, and stick the ids of the LIKES, DISLIKES, THANKS for users in that posts table json formatted. That way you dont have to do that subselect on every post.

Its been disabled on my site.

Unfortunately that would be a monumental resource hog for any form of statistics display and is not a feasible option.

Thank you for the suggestion, though

I was unable to get this to work. It would show Post Like Stats but no ability to actually like a post and I was not able to find the Usergroup settings either. This may be because my admincp directory was changed at installation to something other than admincp for security.

That said I have had no issues with other mod installations and I am quite code literate.

Yeah, you are right about that. I forgot about the statistics.

Well heres a suggestion. Maybe make it so we can avoid displaying the list of people who have thanked/liked. Or is there already a way to avoid that query?

Simply displaying a number of thanks/likes is sufficient.

But you know what would be dope?

Allowing people to do more than thank/like.

Think about uhh...
LOL, FROWN, SMILE, YUCK, COSIGN etc...

They could click whichever one they wanted too.

Anyway, just thoughts.

I'm pretty sure that option is available in the pro version. I've made a 'WTF' option.

I am having the same problem. I can see the Admin piece under options. But the users show statistics on the left, but no way to actually like a post. I searched around a bit and couldn't find any information on fixing this.

Any fixes for this?

Simple answer. I had to enable this as admin in my usergroup permissions. No more problem and it seems to work well. Thank you!

If your AdminCP directory changed, you need to upload thanks.php from the /upload/admincp folder to your new folder.

Also, you need to enable your userid as Super Administrator in config.php in order to see the DBTech - Thanks sidebar. That, or log on to your SAdmin and grant your normal admin Can Administer Thanks.

Usergroup settings are in the Button Manager, which is hidden until you've done the above

Did you post this in the wrong thread? This is the Thanks mod, not the User Tagging mod
