Post Thank You Hack

STAFF EDIT:
Note - The mod author has been unreachable for some time, but the vbulletin.org community has stepped up to provide a number of individual fixes over the years. ForceHSS, Hippy, and Seven Skins have all combined many of these fixes into product files.

ALL CREDIT STILL GOES TO ABE1 And this is still 'his' mod. Please still mark the mod as installed if you use any version of it.

That said so you don't need to apply a dozen + small fixes yourself you should consider downloading one of the updated packages below:

Hippy has one in this post.

AND / OR

ForceHSS has one in this post.

AND/OR

Seven Skins has one in this post.


- Original File Specs: post_thanks_7_82.zip (26.4 KB, 24844 downloads) - Original file removed, replaced with patched files including search fix (some admins noticed hackers attempting to use outdated code to exploit search in attempt to gain administrator password or similar).
- There are five total patched versions available, some with and without the search fix - I've replaced the main file with the patched versions... please be sure to download and install the correct version, the main mod post contains links to additional information and patched files!
- If Abe1 returns he can request these packages be removed.


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.

  • Uses vBulletin easy Product installer/updater/uninstaller
  • Uses AJAX technology so your users don't have to refresh when they thank.

Is it supported on 4.03 PL1? No. That's why it says "Not Supported" up there at the top of the page in the first post.

Does it work on 4.03 PL1? Yes. It works even better if you apply a couple of tweaks mentioned in this thread.

This questioned has been asked and answered several times in this thread.

I found this query on lines 278 - 285, 413 - 420, and 527 - 534. I commented out all of them 3 days ago and haven't received this error and also haven't seen any adverse effects.
If you don't know how to do those edits, upload the attached corrected post_thanks.php file to the forum root and import the attached corrected product-post_thanks.xml file, making sure you select the "overwrite" option.

To fix the cosmetic (font size) errors, apply the fixes in post_thanks_7_82_improvements.zip, posted earlier in this thread bu attached here for convenience.

And I can't rebuilt quantity of thanks!!!
PLZ help me
thx
If you uninstalled this add-on, upgraded, and then reinstalled the vBulletin 4.x version, you probably will lose the previous "thanks" counts.

As for the error, exactly what does the error message say?

Maybe the operation takes too long and your server timeouts?

The problem I noticed was in IE7 or IE8 running in compatibility view.
In a private forum when a admin other than yourself was last to post.
the report icon would get pushed out of the comment area and push
the foot a full screen down where it would display that little report post icon..
I have had this mod install for many version and just noticed this debugging a different problem
the fix is as followed

in post_thanks_javascript template
this is the original code

I added a } at the end before /style

so it looks like this now

hi, i'm hoping someone can help me solve a problem.

while doing a forum upgrade, and subsequent mod installs/reinstalls, (backups were made at several points) I lost all my "post thanks" in my forum.

Now I have the backups to grab the old tables from, but I don't know which tables should be merged/overwritten. If I want to "fix" my post thanks from a backup which tables etc would I need and a little instruction would be very helpful. thanks for a wonderful hack and believe me, my members want thier hard earned thanks back lol.

I uninstalled and am now getting the following error:

Database error in vBulletin 4.0.3:

Invalid SQL:

SELECT userid, usergroupid, displaygroupid, username, posts, post_thanks_thanked_times
FROM asd_user AS user
WHERE post_thanks_thanked_times > '0'
ORDER BY post_thanks_thanked_times DESC
LIMIT 0, 15;

MySQL Error : Unknown column 'post_thanks_thanked_times' in 'field list'
What didn't uninstall and how can I fix it?
