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.

Quick question - how can I remove the "number of thanks a user has given" figure from the postbit userbar? I tried various template edits, but couldn't get it to disappear.

I'd like it so that if the thank you box doesn't show until multiple people have said thanks for it.
Maybe put a condition around the box.

You can remove it from the template.

Is there a way I can limit the hack so that people can only thank just a few times a day and no more than that?

Please I need this. I'll pay you if you help me.

Also a bump for this issue. I also reported this already before
It throws up an error in the Firefox error console for each showthread page.

Just thinking why? that last one is working fine on v3.6.8 and if there is a bug in Firefox then I'll stay with the old for now. You made it too good in the first place lol well done!

I thought it might be something like that. Sorry to be a pain though - but where would I be looking for the bit that displays it? Would it be in one of the templates? Or the XML file?

And if anyone (yourself or someone viewing the thread) would be able to give me an idea of what sort of condition I would need, that would be a HUGE help. Still learning a lot of this...

Hey, nice work!

Question: If I set this to only show for 1 particular forum (like a customer service area), will the 1 query still have to be run on the other forums? If yes, is their a way to prevent that in a future version?

Thanks so much!
