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.
  • Places an easy to use button next to the edit button
  • Separate looks for postbit and postbit_legacy

Importing a product via the admincp NEVER installs core files on your server, it's purely the front end stuff and templates. Uploading files to your server is done the same way you added your forum software to your server!, thats your problem, you dont have any of the core files to run the product installed.

Download FileZilla, it's easy to use and free.

If you want help you can PM me and we'll discuss it privately where i should be able to upload the files for you.

Hi there!

I've installed this mod on my 3.8.7 pl2 board, "Post Groan Hack 4.1" installed as well, everything works great.

But I have a question about conditionals.
I'd like to hide "reply" buttons and "quick reply" form UNTILL member didn't press "thanks" or "groan" button.

So I've tried to edit templates "showthread" and "showthread_quickreply" by adding this conditional:

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

But it doesn't work.

How can I make it?

It will never work like you want unless you can program with ajax which if you need to ask you probably can't do. Your code might work if you refresh the page after thanking.

Look in the showthread template for the proper usage of that type of variable

?!?
This hack doesn't change or add something in "showthread", that's why I want to know how can I add that kind of conditional in it.

It affects "postbit", so if I add my code in it< everything works, but reply buttons and quick reply formI can't hide from there as you understand

Update:
I've got another idea =)
Both "thanks" and "groan" hacks are using reputation on my board, +1/-1 point.
So I can add in "showthread" a conditional like

if threadstarter' reputation of his 1-st post has been changed then show reply buttons and quick reply form
else
message like "You have to "thank/groan post first"

Can someone help me with that kind of conditionals?

Does anyone know of an add-on or something that will show post thank statistics among all members?

Example: Person with most thanks received, Thanks given, etc?

Your queries would look like this:

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

dont forget to add your table prefix before "user" so it would look like this if you use one `vb_user`

I tried installing this today on a fairly large board and it seems to have hung before completing installation... after some 10-15 mins it displayed:

Plugin & Products System

Importing Product, Please Wait...

[:]
Plugin & Products System

Importing Product, Please Wait...

[:]

and nothing beyond that. It doesn't seem anything was installed. Any ideas what to do?
