Post Thank You Hack 1.10


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 peopleís 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 granted liking by ALL the members of your forum.

The hack has been tested VERY well, including 5 weeks of beta testing, but I'm only human I can't guaranty there are no problems.

There is a similar hack called 'Automatic Thank You Hack'. That hack only lets you thank the first post of a thread and not just any post. The options in this hack doesn't compare to my hack. It's also unsupportive and was release for an older version of vBulletin.

Features:
  • Comes with easy installer/updater/uninstaller file
  • Places an easy to use button next to the edit button
  • Separate looks for postbit and postbit_legacy
  • Places all Thank Yous into one small box

  • Counts how many thanks a user gives
  • Counts how many thanks a post gets
  • Shows how many thanks a user gave in every post of his

  • Search for all thanked posts

  • Turn on and off hack
  • Turn on and off hack for only some forums
  • Option to turn off hack for all but the first post of a thread
  • Option to turn off hack for all but the first post of a thread in specific forums
  • Option to turn off hack view of date for specific or all forums
  • [NEW]Option to add to post count when someone clicks 'thanks'.
  • [NEW]Option to give a user who receives thanks reputation points.

Download this and there is an updater from 0.6 to 1.0.

There is also only one file edit you have to do. And no template edits.

One more thing, don't forget to click 'install'.

There is no bug. The only problem is the updater putting in the phrases that were changed. I will try to fix that asap. There is no problem with free installs.

I don't know what you mean by button not always showing. It wont show if it's your post.

OK Guys. The updater has been fixed. Anyone who used the updater download the file again and upload the installer file. Run it and click 'update from 0.6 to 1.0. Don't do the file edit.
