Post Thank You Hack

STAFF EDIT:
Note - The mod author has been unreachable for some time, but the vbulletin.org community has stepped up to provide a number of individual fixes over the years. ForceHSS, Hippy, and Seven Skins have all combined many of these fixes into product files.

ALL CREDIT STILL GOES TO ABE1 And this is still 'his' mod. Please still mark the mod as installed if you use any version of it.

That said so you don't need to apply a dozen + small fixes yourself you should consider downloading one of the updated packages below:

Hippy has one in this post.

AND / OR

ForceHSS has one in this post.

AND/OR

Seven Skins has one in this post.


- Original File Specs: post_thanks_7_82.zip (26.4 KB, 24844 downloads) - Original file removed, replaced with patched files including search fix (some admins noticed hackers attempting to use outdated code to exploit search in attempt to gain administrator password or similar).
- There are five total patched versions available, some with and without the search fix - I've replaced the main file with the patched versions... please be sure to download and install the correct version, the main mod post contains links to additional information and patched files!
- If Abe1 returns he can request these packages be removed.


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

I installed the hack 7.83 a few weeks ago to try it out and its working perfectly - a user was asking whether you could search your own posts to find out which ones had been thanked so i downloaded the 7.83withsearchfix - uploaded and overwitten the previous files then uploaded the new xml file but nothing seems to have changed

At template "post_thanks_memberinfo_block" you need to remove the comments... <!-- and -->

Does anyone know what code changes would be required to make the list of Thanks received only visible to the person who made the post?

Postbit THANKS hack

I have installed this hack on my forum and it worked great! However, being a photo forum, most of my members would prefer to LIKE the photo post rather than THANK the photo post. Is it possible that the THANK button change into a LIKE button?

I know about the Facebook LIKE but I wanna keep the LIKES to within my forum. Can this be done?

@Zeckson

For the button edit the phrase called post_thanks_thanks.

to do this login to admincp go to

Languages & Phrases --> Search in Phrases --> place post_thanks_thanks in the search box. make sure you have Phrase Text and Phrase Variable Name checked.

click on edit and type Like Or Likes or what ever you want it to say.

Hope this helps

Yes, I did it. I translated Mod thanks into Spanish lang (my native lang).
I'm really very interested to use this mod on my board, but I need to solve this problem. I guess, problem is not the lang.
It must be something of PHP script, or mod install code or something so, not exactly the lang.

When i choose English lang (testing in localhost before add any change to the server), everything works fine, but when I change the lang to Spanish, is then when I receive next issue:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

I edited PHP file functions.php to check this issue, but it seems to be a a non-directed issue caused by the mod.

Currently I'm checking all PHP mod thanks code to find the cause, and also the install XML code file.

I also tested changing the template (Default style and MW3 theme by MMORPG Games) and error issue is displayed in both cases, when I use Spanish lang.
When I use English lang, no error is displayed, so I believe the template is not the cause of the mistake.

Testing on Vb 4.1.10 version. I have only installed Spanish lang (from vbhispano - elmer), MW3 theme by MMORPG Games (downloaded from here) and this Thanks mod, nothing else.

Still trying to find the problem. Thanks in advance and sorry by my English.
