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
  • Places all Thanks into one small box
  • Uses only ONE query every time you view a showthread page!

  • Search for all thanked posts
  • Administrator can remove all Thanks from a single post
  • Users can remove their own Thanks
  • Turn on and off hack totally
  • 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

If you can give me a viable string like this that would work:

search.php?$session[sessionurl]do=findthanks&u=$userinfo[userid]

I'd be happy to add it myself until you make it official.

And probably a little more code in the php file.

Thanks for a great product!

I forgot about another problem I'm having. I can't update the groan counts when the groans are removed from a post.

Any update on when you'll have the groans upgraded for 3.6 as well? We use them equally with the Thanks.

On closer examination, it's not the count that's not working, it's the Remove All Groans on the postbit that's not working.

Hy Abe1,
at first many thanks for your work => great hack

but i've found a little bug!

If you set @ the adminCP the option "write templatenames in source" (sorry, i don't know the exact english expression) =>
you will get a klickable underline after the button!
This does only appear by using the IE,
Firefox or other browsers have don't make "trouble"

look at the source-code of the different browsers and the screenshot

Source-code with IE:

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

and here the source-code of firefox:

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

here you can see the little underline:
post_thanks.JPG
(klick to enlarge)
