Post Thank You Hack

STAFF EDIT:
Note - The mod author has been unreachable for some time, but the vbulletin.org community has stepped up to provide a number of individual fixes over the years. ForceHSS, Hippy, and Seven Skins have all combined many of these fixes into product files.

ALL CREDIT STILL GOES TO ABE1 And this is still 'his' mod. Please still mark the mod as installed if you use any version of it.

That said so you don't need to apply a dozen + small fixes yourself you should consider downloading one of the updated packages below:

Hippy has one in this post.

AND / OR

ForceHSS has one in this post.

AND/OR

Seven Skins has one in this post.


- Original File Specs: post_thanks_7_82.zip (26.4 KB, 24844 downloads) - Original file removed, replaced with patched files including search fix (some admins noticed hackers attempting to use outdated code to exploit search in attempt to gain administrator password or similar).
- There are five total patched versions available, some with and without the search fix - I've replaced the main file with the patched versions... please be sure to download and install the correct version, the main mod post contains links to additional information and patched files!
- If Abe1 returns he can request these packages be removed.


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
  • Places all Thanks into one small box
  • Uses only ONE query every time you view a showthread page!
  • Users can't thank twice
  • Option to not allow users to thank their own post
  • Guests don't see 'thanks' button
  • Counts how many thanks a user gives
  • Counts how many thanks a post gets
  • Shows how many thanks a user gave in every post of his
  • Shows how many thanks a user gave in profile
  • Shows how many thanks a user got
  • Shows how many posts or a user are thanked
  • Shows info in profile
  • Search for a users thanked posts
  • Search for all thanked posts
  • Administrator can remove all Thanks from a single post
  • Users can remove their own Thanks

It's already here, try to do a search or read through the previous pages. I would do it myself, but I'm about to log off. If you don't have luck finding the correct post, then I'll help you find it tomorrow.

You should NOT remove the product
You should only disable it and after that update the product (rewrite)

The hack is not only this table "vb_post_thanks"
There is columns in 'user' table and 'post' table you lost it now

oh no , that is a really bad news ...

thanks for your reply .

because I have install DBthanks plugins once before , then I disable it because the thanks button does not show up in my forum .

that's why I remove this product , what a big mistake I made .....

This happened to a board I help out on when they run into trouble. I was able to fix it
you have a back up DB and the current DB you will need to add the info back manually then use the edited DB.. takes some time but it can be done

I've removed this mod, but I'm still getting these database errors getting emailed through to me:

Table 'jgould08_forum.post_thanks' doesn't exist

and

Unknown column 'post.post_thanks_amount' in 'where clause'

Anyone know how to fix them?

oh thanks i get search working

but have another issue. after upgrading to 4.1.8 there are no spaces between users who thanked:
Erin (Today),waterisnot (Today)
So there's no more spaces after commas and there are changes in commas in 4.1.8

Maybe anyone know how to fix it? Not a big deal, but i don't like it

Then you must have neglected to uninstall it properly. You've left one or more of the uploaded files on your server.

I tried asking this on DBtechs Post Thank you mod because that is the mod I have installed however he replied saying that it is your mod. I am really confused and I just need an answer and help. I originally posted this:

I'm having bit of a problem and I don't know if should post here or create a new thread...

Basically I am getting a report just from one user, no one else, saying that every time he tries to go to the forums page; he receives a database error. Now I keep receiving emails about it since I get an email every time a database error occurs. This is what he see's and I receive:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

The stuff in red I just made red to indicated what I changed in the error to protect identity. The rest is directly what I and him received.

Now I am replying here because the error mentions post_thanks_thanked_times so my first thought is that it is an error relating to this script/mod. HOWEVER I don't think this script/mod is interfering with anything because I actually temporarily disabled the entire mod in plugins manager and he was still receiving the database error. He said it first started when he received a notification that he received a Like/Thanks and when he clicked the notification it happened. Basically he can see the home page; his profile, and all other pages EXCEPT for the /forum.php area; so basically the forums is the only area he can't access and when he tries he gets this error. Basically I made him register a new account and everything is working fine now on his new account however I feel like I should still bring this up because he has over 500 posts and I feel it kinda sucks to see or have him just kinda restart...

So my questions are

1) Does anyone know what is up with this?

2) Is this related or tied into this plugin/mod and any way to fix? It is strange to see only this 1 person is having this problem.


Thanks for the feedback!
I just had another user run into this problem and now both are unable to get into the forums section.

the error is not from dbtech thanks plugin it is from the plugin from this post just take the one from my sig install the uninstall making sure you remove all files from the ftp. If you have already removed the plugin then remove all files from the ftp and mysql tables

Much appreciated! Thanks.
