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.

processes of indexing. If you install it again it may even correct the issue, but remember with a big board it can take some time and even time out, if it does just start the install again and it should happen quite quickly.

You'd have to check your server for the processes to see whats running.

My board in miniature at best. I'm sure this started due to an issue at my host. It usually times out when I try to upload or install something.

This is caused by using PHP Version >= 5.3.x - Silencing the error inside the post_thanks.php should not be the final solution, since the problem is still there, you only dont see it anymore.
It says the plugin is not supported anymore - any chance somebody else could upgrade the script so that we can use it with newer PHP Versions?

doesn't really replace or fix the depreciated code, but, at least it works.
That code is in my post_thanks.php file but I'm still getting the above errors.

You need to turn off error reporting on your server in your php.ini and turn "display_errors = off"

The existence of ampersands in those lines in those files is usually the culprit, I have found. Find and delete them, ONLY on the lines indicated. Use a editor such as notepad++ so the links are defined and displayed as you edit.

I want to remove all the thanks that a specific group of users gave to posts on my forum. Something like this (but in SQL query language obviously):
