Post Groan Hack 3.3


About this hack:
This hack was requested by users who like my "Post Thank You Hack". Both can run together on the same forum.

This hack adds a "groan" button to all posts. Any user can "groan" at a post. This will reduce the amount of "junk" posts your forum gets.

Features:
  • Uses vBulletin easy Product installer/updater/uninstaller
  • Uses AJAX technology so your users don't have to refresh when they groan at a post.
  • Places an easy to use button next to the edit button
  • Separate looks for postbit and postbit_legacy
  • Places all Groans into one small box
  • Uses only ONE query every time you view a showthread page!
  • Users can't groan twice
  • Guests don't see 'groan' button
  • Counts how many groans a user gives
  • Counts how many groans a post gets
  • Shows how many groans a user gave in every post of his
  • Shows how many groans a user gave in profile
  • Shows how many groans a user got
  • Shows info in profile
  • Search for a users groaned at posts
  • Search for all groaned at posts
  • Administrator can remove all Groans from a single post
  • Users can remove their own Groans (Option to turn it off)
  • Turn on and off hack totally
  • Turn on and off hack for only some forums
  • Option to turn off hack view of date all forums

Question

Great Mod.

- It would be Nice if for a Future Update you can Add the Option (Yes/No) to Collapse the Posts that have been Groaned by X Number of Users, and only by Clicking an Expand Button the Post Could be Viewed by Users.

- I'd Also be nice that if an Admin or a Moderator Groans a Post, it'd be Automatically be Collapsed, no matter the number of Groans on that Post.

- Also would be Nice that a Message Appears on the Collapsed Posts that Says that "This Posts is Hidden (Collapsed) because Has Been Groaned Too Many Times (or by Too Many Users)"

By doing this, Bad (Groaned) Posts could not get the same Attention as Good Posts, and would be a Great Additional Functionality for this Excellent Mod.

For reporting Posts vBulletin already has the Option to Warn Moderatores and Admins, but to Hide Groaned Posts this Mod would be Great.

I Hope you can Add this Ideas to your Next Update.

My Best Regards.

^^ In addition to the Previous Ideas, I'd like to share one more:

- When integrated with the Post Thank You Hack, another Yes/No Option can be added so that if a Moderator or a Administrator Clicks on the Thank You Button of the Post Hidden by other Users, the Post can be Displayed; in the case one Moderator Says Yes and other Moderator Says No, I think the Post Should Stay Hidden, but if an Administrator Click on the Thank You Button, the Post Should Always be Displayed no matter if a Moderator Click Groan to it.

- Would be Great that in an Option in the Hack at the Admin Control Panel, the User can Specify some Code to Introduce (Image, Table, etc) or to introduce the Default Message when a Post is Hidden because of too many Groans (greater than the Maximum Specified to Hide Posts).

If you can do that and the other ideas I shared with you in my previous Post, and this don't Add too much Weight (Too many Queries) to the Load of Pages, this can be a Great Success.

My Best Regards.

Installed and though the actual groaning is working fine, I'm having a couple of issues ever since installing it:

-I no longer see the "remove my thanks" link in the Thanks hack box, though "delete own thanks" is set to yes. Removing my own groan works fine though.
-the "remove all" link for Thanks hack is present but doesn't work. The page reloads but the thanks doesn't get removed.
- the Groan stats aren't displayed in the profile, though the Thanks stats are

Can I have both the groan and thank you hacks installed? Or will this create compatibility issues between the two?

Same here. We turned every forum member into a comedian by substituting thanks with laugh. We will happily revert back if this is a problem.

So both plugins can be installed though? Thank you and Groan hacks?
