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Original file removed, replaced with patched files including search fix (some admins noticed hackers attempting to use outdated code to exploit search in attempt to gain administrator password or similar).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.

I have installed and running Version 4.1.10 of vbulletin but it isn't working correctly, it says 2 people have thanked on a few occasions now when it was only me or someone else that has thanked, for example....

The Following 2 Users Say Thank You to ARRIVALS For This Useful Post:

See here> http://www.graphicdesignforums.co.uk...html#post37275

Shouldn't that say the following 1 user? Also as an admin how am I supposed to delete other users thanks if I want to? As you can see from the above link it doesn't give me the option to 'Remove Posts' as the old version did.

Any ideas?

I added my own personal button instead of the default thumbs up. How can I get the plain "Thanks" text to be removed but still have the button remain?

You should not be able to thank you more then one time. Is the page refreshing when you click thank you?

To correct number of thanks please go to db and vb_post table. There is the column with number of recived thanks.

This is one way todo it. login into your admincp goto Languages & Phrases --> Search in Phrases -->

Search for Text post_thanks_thanks

make sure you check Phrase Text and Phrase Variable Name

Replace in the box with this code and click save.

As mentioned this is happening more than once on lots of threads with a fresh install, I cannot keep fixing every single thanks made forever, look at the link I posted why does it say 2 lots of thanks when there has only been one, this happens on other occasions all over the forum.

...and where is the link to remove other peoples thanks, as a mod this should be shown but it doesn't.

When I give thanks the page refreshes but not when I remove it, the whole box just dissapears, it only shows again if I manually refresh.

It might just be called "post".

Either way, if you genuinely have no post table, your forum isn't going to be working very well.

Probably this is the source of your problem. The page should not refresh when you give thanks.
Edit: check on default template
