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

If there's anyone who has a little knowledge that could help me set up the conditional to only show the thanks box if 2 or more people thank, please PM me. I'm not sure what to write and feel Abe doesn't have the time (or want) to help me. This is the only thing that is stopping this mod from being exactly what I want for my forum...

Tray the following, but I don't know if that could give errors...

Replace your post_thanks_postbit_legacy template with this code:

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

Note that I'm using Postbit Legacy, you shuld add the conditional to the post_thanks_postbit template, if your are using that.

Thanks for hack! But I have a problem with it. In the profiles of all users the total amount of thanks is similar with admin's thanks! My vbulletin version is 3.7.0 Beta 3. What's that, what can I do to solve this problem?

Is there a mod or submod of this that would allow guests to say Thank You and this be shown in a seperate part i.e. 'x Guests said Thank You for this post'?. Also on the groan hack too

Noctavia, I suggested this in the 3.6 thread, but I don't think you saw it. You're really much better off using the hooks Abe1 placed within the code, instead of using template edits as suggested above, otherwise every time Abe1 updates the mod, you'll have to re-do the template edit above...

Just create a simple plugin for hook location: post_thanks_function_post_thanks_off_end

Try this:

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

Within the query, change the 3 to minimum quantity of times a post should be thanked before displaying, and I think it'll give you what you need.

after the installation of this mod:

Its because you must follow the instructions given in the templates to alter and add the "$template_hook[navbar_search_menu]" in the navbar template if you are using a previous older style.

That looks like an error with the credits mod conflict you had with this mod.3.7 b3 works ok with this.

Thanks for the update Abe.

I am already using this hack in ver 3.6.8. Now after I upgrade my forum to 3.7, will my members be able to retain the previous "Thanks counts"

The permissions are backwards. I mean, there's only one forum I'd like to enable this on, so I would need to disable it for every forum but that one, including any new ones I might add.

I want to display a hit counter so that everytime someone hits the thanks button a number increases by 1. What kind of plugin should I add to make this happen?
