Post Thank You Hack 7.4


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

I am having no luck with this. I uploaded the files and imported the product and it doesn't work. It displays like it's working, but when I click "Thanks" the button disappears and nothing happens. Nothing gets "thanked" and the tally doesn't show anything either.

I've uninstalled it, re-installed it, 3 times and still nothing. Any ideas anyone?

Thanks!

And it is slowing the forum down incredibly bad. I have it uninstalled right now, but sometimes I get this error when it's installed:


Database error in vBulletin 3.6.8:

Invalid SQL:
SELECT * FROM post_thanks AS post_thanks INNER JOIN user AS user USING (userid) WHERE post_thanks.postid IN (0,116954,116955,116956,116958,116961,116962,116963,116966,117001,118114,118975) ORDER BY post_thanks.username ASC;

There was a post in another version of this product that gives the solution:

http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showt...92#post2038392

Essentially:

1. Open the file "post_thanks.php"

2. Find:


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

3. Change to:


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

4. Save "post_thanks.php"

5. Re-upload to your FTP server.

This addresses some incompatibilities in newer versions of PHP.

It worked for me by the way.

Dexter...

Hi,

I upgraded to a new server, I disabled plugins system in config.php before backing up and transferring files to new server. Now everything works but when thanks is clicked, there's a 500 internal server error... any help?

On my large forum I can't uninstall this hack. When I click the uninstall button it just stalls. Is there anyway to manually uninstall this if the admin panel option isn't working?



edit: apparently it worked. Crashed my MySQL server but when I checked afterwards this hack was gone.

Great work first of all. I only have one question, when we have multiple users who thank the same author I need to have a comma btwn user id's. Right now it is like this user1 user 2 etc and we need it to be like user1, user2 etc...

How where do I add the . "," to make it join the user id's with a comma(space)?

I'm about to update my vBulletin version from 3.8.2 to 4.x - if I install the latest thank you hack 7.4. is it going to work on the new vBulletin version 4.x as well, or do I have to use a different version for 4.x?

Didn't work for me in 4.1.10. When I turn it on, my forum goes completely wonky and can't be viewed. I tried hitting the INSTALL link here on this hack, but a message came up saying that I don't have the rights to do so even though I'm a member of this forum (???). Oh well!
