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.

My host company insalled the plugin for us and enabled it, but the thanks/like icons are not displaying anywhere for any users, whether they use a custm style or the default one. I asked them why this was happening and they've essentially said I just have to test it and figure it out. But I'm at a loss. I'm on vb 4.2.4, I'd appreciate any pointers anyone could offer me!

I would re-upload the contents of the upload folder as your first step

A bit of an issue here with the like/thanks notification to the right tab in the user profile to see who liked or thanked...

The default format is "userid.html?#thanks" just doesn't work it keeps on redirecting to the main tab in the profile "My Activity".

but when i tried to put it manually with this format

"userid.html?tab=thanks#thanks"

it did work !

Any idea how to make it automatically ?

Hello,

I am still experiencing the same issue as before. I have installed the latest version as of this post with a clean uninstall and re-install. Reminder, the issue is:

The button to thank a post next to the "edit" and "report post" buttons does not appear. If I inspect the elements, it's not that they are hidden. The buttons do not exist. No HTML for them in the DOM.

This happens in every forum, even ones that do not have any buttons disabled. I have even made every user group including guests and banned users able to click them. Still nothing.

The total number of thanks shows up above the post list and a collapsible list of a user's thanks shows up beside each post. The button is the only thing not working. Here is an example: http://www.maf_iauniverse.com/forums/threads/8826

(Remove the underscore from the url. It seems the word +++++ is filtered by the swear filter on this site.)

HTML for a post:

Disregard that post. I think I found the issue.

Edit: Confirmed. The button was being affected by a JavaScript code.

Will not work under PHP 7.0

I try to fix the bug but i could not.

I am under Vbulletin 4.2.5 and PHP 7.0

For the first topic the system Like is ok, all the buttons works

But if someone answer a topic, under the answer the system Like double the display and two lines of sections of buttons appears instead of one.

If someone answer a third answer, the system Like triple the display and three lines of sections of buttons appears instead of one.

And it keeps growing

I cannot use that add-ons

Did you try it with a lower version of php? 5.6 perhaps?

It can only import from another thanks mod on the same database.

I love this mod, but as I mentioned in a support ticket on DBTech site, if you want to sub-in your own custom icons (and honestly, most site owners are going to want to do that) - you seem to have to use the exact same sized images. I bumped the icon size up to 24x24 and the only place they appear in full is in the post section in forums. Everywhere else the mod allows the use of the post thanks/likes icons, they are severely cropped. DB - I know you view this as a skin/template issue, but is it not possible to fix this in an update so that icon images are re-sized to fit automatically? That would seem like an improvement that future users (and purchasers of the pro version) would like? I'm a little frustrated because I have not been able to find someone who seems to be able to fix it. My choice is to go back to small icons or disable the mod in the site areas where the images are being cropped

If anyone here has mad template skills and think they can fix it, open to suggestions...

Not sure if this is the dbtech mod causing this, but upon trying to login to my admin on my vb4 today I got this error

Error: Using $this when not in object context in ..../dbtech/status/hooks/init_startup.php on line 17

the vb4 forum itself seems okay but I cannot get into admin.

---

Update, I
define('DISABLE_HOOKS', true);
and toggled a couple things on and off.

The issue is with your DragonByte Tech: User Status & Moods, v 1.3.6 when I turned this off error did not repeat and could access admin again.
