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.

We are now considering the pro version - does it upgrade from the lite version?

I do not know if this has been covered or not... I uploaded the files, installed the addon (I can see the stats under the users avatar), have the "Post Thank You" menu in the AdminCP, but I have no options for this mod when I go into the usergroups.

I have recently upgraded from 4.1.1 to 4.1.9 and since then have lost this mod. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling with freshly downloaded files and nothing. The {vb:raw thanks_postbit} doesn't show up anywhere and the buttons do not appear under posts. I have set all permissions, button, usergroups, etc and still nothing. I have also tried creating a new (default) style with no mods to make sure that nothing was conflicting with this and still no luck. Can someone please help??

**Update - This problem has been solved by the excellent team at DB Tech! You guys are outstanding! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

I previously had this working with 4.1.4 and 4.1.5 pl1 but now I'm doing the final build of my website now that I know what I want added and what I've tested and works, but this time it's not working. Everything is showing like it should work... all the settings are set up the way I'd done it a few times before but for some reason it's not functioning at all. Nothing happens when clicking on the Like or Thanks ... and the drop-down doesn't work either.

What's been changed with this Mod since I posted in here last August - http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showt...96#post2234896 Whatever it was that changed, it broke it for me.

I'm using 4.1.5 pl1

I'm still having trouble using 2 of the lite features:

Infinite Buttons: Ability to create new buttons to press! No longer do you need to be limited by Thanks / Like / Dislike.

Statistics: Shows the top 5 people for; Giving / Receiving button clicks.
I cannot find or see where to create other buttons and I tried creating the forum side block and nothing is appearing when activated.

I couldn't tell you, that's a long time ago.

Please check Firefox' error console for any errors.

Well this is embarrassing... The "Infinite Buttons" was incorrectly placed in the Lite list, it has never been a Lite feature. Sorry

Don't forget to purge the sidebar cache and flush any cache systems like vB Optimise you may be running.

I'll be honest; I have NO idea how to do this haha. I tried searching the answer and the closest area I've gotten was under "Maintenance" and still nothing.

Thanks!

Not working with 4.1.9. The notifications warning doesnt clear after you have read the likes.
Also, the profile tab is missing.
Will this be fixed?

Unfortunately not, because the two parts you are describing are not problems with this mod

Notifications warnings clear when you click the link in the notifications menu, however vBSEO torpedoes this link and renders it unusable. I'll assume you have vBSEO installed.

Profile tab missing would be due to a conflicting mod, there's nothing I can do about that I'm afraid.
