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

Not to bug, just want to add a note that this mod is mission critical to my forum and one of the few [must haves' before upgrading to 4.0.

Thanks again for a GREAT MOD! Really, really love it as do all of my users.

I've recently upgraded to the stable PHP 5.3.1. Upon upgrading, this mod (and the Groan, I will double post over there just to be sure) began triggering errors in vB:


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

Even though I am running the latest Vb (3.8.4PL1) that has the deprecated error handling, and I have deprecated errors blackholed in my php.ini file I still get these errors upon using the "Thanks" button. The error appears to be bubbling up through the vB bits that call the mod. Hope this helps.

Hi and thank you for this, is their any way of disabling the thanks button showing up in specific forum styles. Reason being is the the way one of my forum styles is configured when I add the thankyou button they same way I have with my other styles the button is way out of line with the others so I manually added a button and now there is 2 thankyou buttons, the one I added and the one that shows with the mod which is as said out of line with the other's, I want to disable the post_thanks link for just one of my styles.

Many thanks in advance.

The whole hack or just that thanks button link?

If you remove the link it will still show 'Users who have thanked this post' column.

PM me a screen shot or post here then i can see whats happening. I may be able to do you a button that fits in line with the others!

This mod works very well except for guests' posts. If you thank the post written by unregistered members, following error message is thrown up.

Warning: array_merge() [function.array-merge]: Argument #2 is not an array in [path]/post_thanks.php on line 57

Anyone faced this issue? Any idea how to fix this? Thanks!

Its working fine so far, just a small problem. It doesnt show the
Post / Thanks stats in Threads. I uploaded all files and
Show Stats in Postbit? is set to YES.
Would be nice to get a fix ^^
Anyway thanks for your work.
