Post Thank You Hack 7.4


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

It's not working properly for me. The buttons are showing but when you click one they just both disappear. They don't count. I am using 3.6.9 so maybe that's why?

Can anyone help me? After I upgrade from 5.3 to 7.4, the Thank button disappeared and the list of users who thanked on all threads also gone.

What did I wrong or am I missing something? I'm using VBB 3.6.8.

Many thanks!

I am using 3.6.9 and it doesn't work. The thanks button is there but when you click it nothing happens.

By the way, all the template changes it says to make in the 3.6.8 file are already there.

Ok it works now. Even I'm using Vb 3.6.8, I have to follow the instruction of installing into Vb 3.6.0 and 3.6.5 because the template neeed to be modified again.

So if anybody has the sample problem with me, remember to edit your templates as described on the file Insructions - vb-3-6-0 - vb-3-6-5.txt

Cheers

If one was going to upload the post-thanks XML file manually via ftp, where would one place it? In the root forum or some other folder? Since there's been no help I'm left to trying random things.

The XML file can most easily be imported through your AdminCP...

AdminCP >> Plugins & Products >> Manage Products >> [Add/Import Product] (Right panel bottom).

Or FTP'd into your ./includes/xml/ directory... but you'll still need to do the above step after the file is uploaded directly via FTP.
