Importer from Abe's Thanks mod (vB3 / vB4) and vBSEO "Likes" now available in Lite version!



Major Features: Lite

Require a Button Click: Allows you to hide the content of a post, or hie an attachment, until the person clicks a button on the post.

Statistics: Shows the top 5 people for; Giving / Receiving button clicks.

Collapsable postbit stats: Shows how many button clicks a person has given, received etc in the postbit. Admins can determine what statistics can show in the postbit to control sizes etc. The postbit is also collapsable.

Admin Permissions: Control things such as who can click buttons, require button clicks, what shows in postbit, what options can run concurrently, per forum permisions etc.

Reputation: Add / Remove Reputation for each of your button clicks.

Notifications: Receive alerts when a member clicked on one of the buttons for one of your posts.

Import Thanks: Import script to import "thanks" from Abe's [AJAX] Post Thank You Hack on vBulletin.org. It will work with both vB3 and vB4 versions of this mod.

Import Likes: Import script to import "likes" from vBSEO.


Major Features: Pro

Infinite Buttons: Ability to create new buttons to press! No longer do you need to be limited by Thanks / Like / Dislike.

Auto Collapse Posts: Collapses a post so it doesnt show up by using a formulae for button clicks of your choosing.

User Postbit Config: Lets users decide what postbit stats they want to see.

Additional permissions: Un-click a button. Control how many stats show on the statistics page, set permissions per subforum.

Integrated Controls: You can now integrate the button clicking controls into the post footer, like many of you requested.

Buttons in First Post Only: This allows you to only make the first post thankable. If you forum is based around news, releases or anything similar this will allow your users to easily see the quality of the thread in question.

Button Click Anonymity: This feature will be extremely helpful to forums who like the idea of a "dislike" button, but don't like the drama it brings. Now you can set certain buttons to be anonymous - no one will see who clicked.

Post Colour Thresholds: Ever wanted an easy way for members to tell if a post is helpful or trash? Colour thresholds let you change the colour of posts depending on how many clicks of a button they receive. Members can now see at a glance whether or not a post is helpful, interesting or pointless.

BTW, here are some features I'd like to see:

1) Email user when they receive thanks (fully phrased)

2) Link in both postbit and user profile that is a count of thanks given and received that links to a list of the posts concerned.

3) Widget for posts most thanked, with an option to show by thread which would add up all the thanks within that thread.

4) As mentioned earlier, should be able to configure adding to the users reputation points when thanks are received.

For the record, I am happy to see this and other mods offered as paid Pro versions that are well supported. I'd love to see more Paid Pro hacks being offered! Anybody know of a site that gathers up all the paid/commercial offerings?
Will keep your ideas in mind when we're doing the next version. Probably won't for at least a month though - theres other mods in the queue to be updated first.

Feel free to post your ideas on our site to make sure they don't get overlooked when we're designing the next version =)

This mod doesn't 100% hide the contents - quoting the post does reveal the content.
However, doing so is much more arduous than simply clicking Like or Thanks

And no, this is not designed to be a HIDE-hack first and foremost, so there's no option to post to un-hide.

You can try it out on our website =)

There is no option for a normal post to unhide the content currently no, feel free to suggest it for future version though =)

Very quick question:

I would love to try this mod out; however, the permissions panel in the admincp isn't showing up..have uninstalled/deleted files/reinstalled about 4 times now and I can't figure it out. Any ideas?

As super admin, I can't get the menu options to show...ideas? Version 3.8.4 and installing the correct XML file.

I also notice (if this matters) in the products page, your two addons that I'm working with today are both black (not hyperlinked)...just noticed it, didn't know if it was relevant.

I should probably also specify that this post is indeed in the wrong place, but the right version is installed.

That just means there's no Product URL setting

Did you upload the cpnav file in the correct directory as well?
Also, can you try granting yourself the Can Admin Thanks permission? Just in case xP
