Post Thank You Hack 7.7


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

KIDDING! Seriously just being silly to make a point - See how easy it is to misinterpret someone's actions? I don't see anything wrong with it personally seeing as many have had issues with this modification and there is no official support while they have a lite version of a very similar mod that is supported.

Share the love DB Tech and djbaxter, share it .

What a wounder full addon,
many thanks for it.

i have a little problem though, i have my own customized postbit_legacy,
as will as another plugin " Chief First Post - Every Page [Forum Based] " to keep the first post at the top, on all pages.
for some reason the addon is not showing on the first post.
is there any possibility to add the addon manually to the postbit legacy?

Check the settings in this Mod, there is a option to not allow the thanks for the first post of a thread. Insure this option is not active.

thanks Max,
it is set to be Not Active,

however the same problem, the first post doesn't have the
Post Thank you

i am sure it is something to do with my customized postbit_legacy, i may have deleted some needed coding by the hack, if i use the default postbit_legacy it works perfectly... however i still need to use a customized one

If you have the PSDs for other buttons in your style, it is easy to make a matching "Thanks" button for that style.
