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Original file removed, replaced with patched files including search fix (some admins noticed hackers attempting to use outdated code to exploit search in attempt to gain administrator password or similar).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

Would be very grateful for a fix.

I realize when you find a new mod with 1,600+ posts reading the ENTIRE thread is impractical... but you should read at least the last few weeks it will usually answer most of your questions.

The answer to your question is in post 1659.

Once you make that change it seems to work fine in 4.1.5 (and probably will for all future 4.x versions.)

I hope you don't take it that way, I was explaining something that might help you in the future while answering your question.

Look at the date i was around this place ........... i take things as said

i accept i was absolutely in the wrong and should have looked prior to posting a rhetorical question but as you pointed out so clinically
read at least the last few weeks it will usually answer most of your questions
would have answered my post.

My apologies ..........

Here is a live link to the post referred to by BirdOPrey

1659

I find it often that there are fixes noted and although this is fine, I think it would be beneficial to all if a fix link is added by the moderators in the original posting so that when folks download it, they are aware that there will be modifications required.

This would save a lot of misunderstandings and frustration.

By the way this error occurs with version 4.1.3 also.
