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.
  • 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

The fieldset tag draws the little box around information. You can find examples in the memberinfo statistics box template.

Just a quick question.

I have not yet updated to 3.7.0 yet but once the full version is released,

I will be totally removing the Hide hack from Psionic Vision and installing your version of thank you hack.

Is there anyway I can move over the thanks you's that all my members already have and import them into your hack
once I install or would I have to start a fresh?

Thanks for any help

I was not able to reproduce. I would need to look at your forum.

Will this decrease your thanks counts in your profile ?
This for the thank you ranklist.
Currently yes. Will be an option in next version.

I just upgraded from 6.1 to 7.1.

For some reason the thanks button is missing... any ideas? I am running 3.6.8

I was thinking of uninstalling and reinstalling, but would that delete all my previously thanked posts?

thanks!
I would have to look at your forum.

I was wondering if there is any possibility to make something more usefull, like a radio button to choose "include this forums" or "exclude this forums" and put the IDs there, for example. I hope you understand what I mean, my english is not good...

thanks!
Possibly in the future, but not right now.

Thanks: 0
Thanked 0 Times in 0 Posts

then for post #3 in the thread in THAT users profile will show:

This was only a vb3.6.7 error and has a fix in the current version. What version are you running now.
