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
  • Option to integrate hack with Post Thanks Hack
  • Ban Usergroups
  • Ban Users
  • Uses Phrases
  • Cache Templates

Can we change this:
The Following User(s) Says NO Thank You to XYZ For This Un-useful Post:
to this:
The Following User(s) have GROANED to XYZ For This Un-useful Post:
& cant we show this bit inside the post itself rather than a separate box outside the post?

Installed this on vB 3.6.8 using Default templates and already had the Thank You Hack working fine. Seem to go fine, Groan button is on the postbit, but when I click the button, the screen simply refreshes and both the Thank You and Groan buttons disappear from that post window; however, they still appear on post windows above and below that specific post. If I refresh the page, they reappear in the original window, but nothing is happening? If I click the Thank You button in that same window, everything works as expected. I tried reverting my postbit template, but that didn't help either.
Any advice?
Thanks,
KF

Bumping the thread is no the good idead and doesn't mean that we will run here and help you...
Try to clean your browser's cache and be shure that your vBulletins templates are up to date.

What are you talking about? This is the Groan thread, I didn't bump it anywhere. I simply asked for help again, and had the courtesy to put my previous post to insure whomever finally did reply knew what I was talking about.

As far as your recomendations, thank you, but been there and done that. Tried on several different computers with clean browser histories. This is a fresh vBulletin install from around January 2, 2008. Templates are up to date...and the Thank You hack works fine. It is the Groan hack with which I am having problems...it is currently disabled due to the problems stated in my original post.

What you have set for option "Integrate this hack with Post Thanks Hack?"
Did you try to disable Thanks hack?
Did you try to reupload the files?
