Post Thank You Hack 7.4


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

  • Option to turn off hack for all but the first post of a thread in specific forums

An other small bug report: when you use the "Delete All of a Users Thanks" feature and enter the user id of a deleted user, you get a database error (vBulletin 3.6.6).

Database error in vBulletin 3.6.6:

Invalid SQL:
SELECT * FROM post_thanks WHERE postid IN () ORDER BY username ASC;

MySQL Error : You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near ') ORDER BY username ASC' at line 1
Error Number : 1064

When you delete a user, all his thanks should get deleted also.

Indeed, but getting a database error is not that clean
A normal "Go back" message would be better imho

This was a fix for duplicating info.

Try looking at a default vb 3.6.6/7 style and see if it works.
