Importer from Abe's Thanks mod (vB3 / vB4) and vBSEO "Likes" now available in Lite version!



Major Features: Lite

Require a Button Click: Allows you to hide the content of a post, or hie an attachment, until the person clicks a button on the post.

Statistics: Shows the top 5 people for; Giving / Receiving button clicks.

Collapsable postbit stats: Shows how many button clicks a person has given, received etc in the postbit. Admins can determine what statistics can show in the postbit to control sizes etc. The postbit is also collapsable.

Admin Permissions: Control things such as who can click buttons, require button clicks, what shows in postbit, what options can run concurrently, per forum permisions etc.

Reputation: Add / Remove Reputation for each of your button clicks.

Notifications: Receive alerts when a member clicked on one of the buttons for one of your posts.

Import Thanks: Import script to import "thanks" from Abe's [AJAX] Post Thank You Hack on vBulletin.org. It will work with both vB3 and vB4 versions of this mod.

Import Likes: Import script to import "likes" from vBSEO.


Major Features: Pro

Infinite Buttons: Ability to create new buttons to press! No longer do you need to be limited by Thanks / Like / Dislike.

Auto Collapse Posts: Collapses a post so it doesnt show up by using a formulae for button clicks of your choosing.

User Postbit Config: Lets users decide what postbit stats they want to see.

Additional permissions: Un-click a button. Control how many stats show on the statistics page, set permissions per subforum.

Integrated Controls: You can now integrate the button clicking controls into the post footer, like many of you requested.

Buttons in First Post Only: This allows you to only make the first post thankable. If you forum is based around news, releases or anything similar this will allow your users to easily see the quality of the thread in question.

Button Click Anonymity: This feature will be extremely helpful to forums who like the idea of a "dislike" button, but don't like the drama it brings. Now you can set certain buttons to be anonymous - no one will see who clicked.

Post Colour Thresholds: Ever wanted an easy way for members to tell if a post is helpful or trash? Colour thresholds let you change the colour of posts depending on how many clicks of a button they receive. Members can now see at a glance whether or not a post is helpful, interesting or pointless.

I'm having a small problem.

I use vbAdvanced for my CMS and anytime I enable this plugin I have template problems.

News module normally has a bar on the bottom of each post that shows thread views, reply count, edit post, reply and send to a friend via email.

Now when I enable the plugin it no longer shows the bar, the images are removed, the links are without the sytle's css, and pushes the links to the left side of the post.

As for the Poll Module it just removes the poll images.

These are the only issues I've found so far

I would like to use this plugin because of what it adds to the forums, but I have it disabled due to this problem. Any information will help.

Thanks ahead of time.
Dragon

Guest clicking is not supported, and I am unable to reproduce any issue that allows guests to click.

Not at this time, sorry.

You can do it manually via SQL queries, but it's not something we support via an interface.

Please check your usergroup permissions in the Button Manager.

vBAdvanced is full of compatibility issues with various mods, so unfortunately we won't be able to offer any assistance in this issue

You're no-welcome

FYI, it only adds the link on its dedicated pages, not on your showthread

It's ok I'll just find another that doesn't screw with vbAdvanced, first time I've had an issue with it in years. At least it gives me the heads up not to go pro with this one, I haven't tried any of the other mods we've purchased from you.

Anyway thanks for your time.

We always recommend trying out the Lite version before going Pro, since we're unable to guarantee 100% compatibility and finding this out post-install means the transaction is ineligible for a refund (seeing as the product is already downloaded, we'd have no way of knowing if the person downloading it would leave it installed, or re-install it later)

My partner and I have 2 of your products already from a few years ago and we know they work with vbAdvanced, but I was just testing this one out before he put the cash down.

I think you helped out my partner last year with a problem via your site.

I need to place the thanks button inline with the other buttons (quote, quickrply etc..) is that possible? Or where can i access the html for displaying the button itself, if the inline positioning isn't possible, i would like to move the thanks button to the right?

Not easily, it's not something we support at this time.

Just upgraded to 1.1.9 and I still can't use hide BBcode to require button pressed to reveal content. And I still can see hide BBcode as text, not BBcode (that's difference from pro version, that works fine).

The Hide BBCode is a Pro-only feature

I've just tried installing this on 4.1.6, however It's not working for me.

I followed the readme to the letter, but after installing the product, there's no DBTech - Post Thanks section in the admincp navigation.

Any ideas on how to get it to install correctly?
