vb 5.1.8

You might as well try to get it to work with vb 5.1.8 which I am certain it does not yet, since 5.1.8 is out now. Thanks.

Haiiii..

I wanna ask about Thanks - Feed. I bought the pro version.
I supposed to use it as Top Like report for some contest.
The contest was input in comment post.
If like button clicked in comment post it will appear as 'No Title'. We don't know whats clicked but just know who click the like button.

We need to know what was clicked, such as the title of the post/ comment or the username.

One thing that made me curious is one of our user's seems have title and appear in Thanks-Feed. I try how it can be happen but I'm not found it.

Can you help me explain how to make the title in comment that would appear in Thanks Feed?

I wait for your feedback soon. Thanks before.

Could you elaborate on this step in the readme, please?

2. CHMOD the following folders to 0777
/core/packages/dbtechthanks/vbactivity_type

Everything else looks really simple

So... Does this not work with 5.1.7? I tried installing it and got an error partially through the installation.

It says

"That action could not be completed. Please try again, and if this occurs again please contact the system administrator and tell them how you got this message."

Right after this part.

"Altered Table: vb_node
Updating Version Number To: 3.0.4a5

Altered Table: vb_dbtech_thanks_button"

Is this still being supported? Any chance you'll take suggestions on improvements to the system that can be ported to all the versions for VB3, 4, and 5?

If so...

1. There should be an option to allow the user to type a comment for a like or a dislike. Maybe it can appear on their profile page like a visitor message? Or maybe when you hover over the like or dislike number on the post it can display the names of those who liked/disliked it and hovering over the name can display their comment.

2. An option to limit the amount or likes/dislikes that be given per day. I just managed to get this implemented on VB 5.1.9 and within an hour somebody had went around and gave over 150 dislikes... A lot to the same users. It kind of ruins the value of the system when there's no option for limiting it.

3. Allow the options "given/recieved" to be view able on the profile under their information.(location and such) This would allow for the posbit to be uncluttered some and still allow members to view the information.

4. I don't know if "notifications" exist in VB3 and VB4 like they do in VB5. But in VB5, it's a bit annoying that the "notification" for likes/dislikes is done through a personal message (that you can't customize?) instead of an actual notification that you can dismiss easily. And the option to allow members to disables these notifications altogether would definitely be nice.

This looks like a pretty nifty little mod and a missing feature in vB5 ... I just took the chance and installed this on 5.2.1 and lo and behold it seems to be working, no errors or nothing ... But as someone mentioned 2 posts up, the buttons are not showing up in the post view. However we can see everything from "Thanks, Likes, Dislikes Received, etc..." But I suppose what good is that if no one can see the actual like, dislike buttons.

And also as with all of your other mods @DragonByte Tech the admincp settings are out of whack and do not save ... we keep getting hit with a message that goes something like this -> "Invalid Page URL. If this is an error and the page should exist, please contact the system administrator and tell them how you got this message."

Anyway, I realize you are busy B with other projects, and this is the least of your concern or priority. But, a very nice mod idea nonetheless.

I'd like to see this work in 5.2.1 +. Definitely a mod I'd consider purchasing!
