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.

OMG - thank you! .. we removed the xcache component (php upgrade) on our servers but vbOptimize did not recognize ... neither mentioned it. But it killed the functionality of the Thanks Plugin (Button disappeared on click, nothing happend a.s.o).

There is something I wanted to suggest and/or get help with.

You can disable the product for guests (for SEO reasons) which is great but then it hides the whole like/dislike bar which is pretty bad IMO as it can incite new registrations to add reactions.

Instead I would advise to show the like/dislike bar but not make it clickable.

This is what other forums that have a similar product do.

Engage visitors and do not disrupt SEO, you get the best of both worlds.

Is it possible to implement this with a simple template change? I have tried to mess with the templates, but to no avail. Thank you.

Yes, re-enable the product for guests via the setting you described. It's never clickable for guests, so what you're describing is literally the default behaviour.

I think there could be a misunderstanding, what I mean by "not clickable" is can not click to see the list of people who clicked like/dislike.

I am going to hire a freelance developer to fix this, but I just want to make sure it doesn't violate the license first. Is it fine to do this particular modification?

Installed. Was working. Buttons and counts still display. Settings all double checked.

But suddenly, clicking on the Thanks or Likes buttons does nothing.

Any suggestions for fixing this?

Hi, is it possible to make the postbit figures clickable to go to member.php?{USERID}-{USERNAME}&tab=thanks#thanks ?

I've messed around with the dbtech_thanks_postbit template using {vb:raw post.userid} but have been unsuccessful.

Thanks

well we had to create a clone of our 12yr old forum just to see this mod in action, here it is






that's how it looks if post has 9,000+ clicks, we're hoping for a collapsible list or on-click popup window, we're planning to avail the pro version, good thing we tried this lite version first in a clone/test forum


PS:
apologies for the preview but had to be done to stress a point

Yes, the Pro version allows you to limit how many names are shown in the postbit:
