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.

Due to the changes in the current version being beta tested (buttons are now completely configurable, there is no standard thanks/like etc). This might not be possible/practical to do.

Do you have an ETA? Any chance of getting this to work on 4.1.1? I just purchased the Premium version for my newly upgraded site, but the Post Thanks is not working.
Thank you

v1.1.2 has been released. This is a version that has been in Beta for a long time, but is now ready to be released.

Changelog:
  • Thanks and Like have been changed to generic "buttons". You can rename them and control other aspects via the Button Management.
  • Reputation modifier per button has been added
  • Compatibility with [DBTech] vBActivity v2.1.3 has been added.
  • [HIDE] tag for hiding post content has been added.

IMPORTANT!!!
Your Usergroup Permissions, and per-post content hiding have been reset.
Please re-configure Usergroup Permissions via Button Management, and edit posts to include the HIDE tag where appropriate.

Will the template modifications made to v1.0.1 (Lite) survive upgrading to v1.1.2?

Thanks for thanks, excellent mod

That would depend on the edit, but it'd probably be safe to say that you should re-do them (if needed) after upgrading and reverting the template

Probably shouldn't stop product import

You need to uninstall the mod if it shows as installed, then manually remove any tables that may remain in the database (they are all called dbtech_thanks_) and then try a re-install.


Hotfix for vBActivity & Awards integration released.

Re-download and re-upload all files (no need to re-import XML) if you are using vBActivity & Awards

I have just installed and I can't seem to find the usergroup permission settings. Your post above stated to re-configure via Button managment but I do not see it there either. I see the forum permissions.
I have re uploaded all files and re installed xml.

Nevermind! I did a search and found this http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showp...&postcount=158
Guess I should have searched first. Had to set the admin permission to administer.
Sorry.
