Post Groan Hack 3.3


About this hack:
This hack was requested by users who like my "Post Thank You Hack". Both can run together on the same forum.

This hack adds a "groan" button to all posts. Any user can "groan" at a post. This will reduce the amount of "junk" posts your forum gets.

Features:
  • Uses vBulletin easy Product installer/updater/uninstaller
  • Uses AJAX technology so your users don't have to refresh when they groan at a post.
  • Places an easy to use button next to the edit button
  • Separate looks for postbit and postbit_legacy
  • Places all Groans into one small box
  • Uses only ONE query every time you view a showthread page!
  • Users can't groan twice
  • Guests don't see 'groan' button
  • Counts how many groans a user gives
  • Counts how many groans a post gets
  • Shows how many groans a user gave in every post of his
  • Shows how many groans a user gave in profile
  • Shows how many groans a user got
  • Shows info in profile
  • Search for a users groaned at posts
  • Search for all groaned at posts
  • Administrator can remove all Groans from a single post
  • Users can remove their own Groans (Option to turn it off)
  • Turn on and off hack totally
  • Turn on and off hack for only some forums
  • Option to turn off hack view of date all forums
  • Option to integrate hack with Post Thanks Hack
  • Ban Usergroups
  • Ban Users
  • Uses Phrases
  • Cache Templates

you know what would be awesome? an option for both thanks and groan hacks to automatically increase/decrease user's reputation if his post/thread was thanked/groaned. what do you think?

I didn't add rep to the hack yet. I hope to eventually.

I haven't installed either this or the thanks hack on my board because its small and I don't think it would get much use.

But they both appear to be great hacks from the screenshots.

Now that you have both, in future versions, have you thought about combining them into one hack and make an option to use one or both. Since it seems they do very similar things.

If combined with a way to alter reputation, that would be a killer hack.

They work together now that if a user thanks or groans a post, they can't do the other to the post also. I just never did the rep thing yet in the groan hack. I'll try to get it in soon. You should click 'install' here so you'll get an email when I release the new version.

In the post groan options there is an option integrate both hacks so one user can't do back to the same post.
