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Original file removed, replaced with patched files including search fix (some admins noticed hackers attempting to use outdated code to exploit search in attempt to gain administrator password or similar).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


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!
  • Users can't thank twice
  • Option to not allow users to thank their own post
  • Guests don't see 'thanks' button
  • Counts how many thanks a user gives
  • Counts how many thanks a post gets
  • Shows how many thanks a user gave in every post of his
  • Shows how many thanks a user gave in profile
  • Shows how many thanks a user got
  • Shows how many posts or a user are thanked
  • Shows info in profile
  • Search for a users thanked posts
  • 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

Is there another way to move the Thanks button to the right hand side, next to Reply?

Thanks.
either you edited wrong or there is other mods you hav that might be conflicking ..

this works 100% with out 1 issue..
I will write up a new hook and explain what you need to do tonight..
so post thanks will have it's own hook.. and the rest of the ( other buttons will remain) they must be other mods using the same hook..

Wow, there are a lot of posts to read through for this Mod. I read quite a few pages but could not find the answer I was looking for, maybe there was so many post I overlooked it.

I know you can find find out how many Thanks I have given or a particular user has given by looking at there About Me page.

But how can I look and find out what posts that users has Thanked or I have Thanked?
Is this possible?

Thanks are gone

Was workking fine, then dissapeared. The last few days I installed a few mods. Today I noticed the thanks button and all thanks were not displayed.

I unstalled the mods I put in, disabled the hack, then enabled. I also reverted the postbit template. Still not there. I do not want to uninstall and reinstall because I will loose the thanks.

Any advice?

if you un-installed you lost the thanks...
you need to disable all the mods but the thanks mod and see if it comes back .. when or if it does turn one mod on @ a time and see what one is conflicting

Anyone got this working on the vb Mobile style yet ? , Ive got the Thanks button to appear on the postbit and it works , however im not sure what If conditions to surround the text to make the button disappear after it has been clicked.

Also not sure what part needs to be added to show the thanks that have been given although im not that bothered about that bit, Just the disappearing of the button after it has been clicked would be good enough ?

Thanks for that link, i figured it out earlier today all those steps are not really needed as it messes with the layout , one thing you do need to do is activate the additional css in the mobile theme which isnt active as standard, also the postbit hook locations need to be in place, you will also need to edit the phrases or the code for the phrases as they are too long for a mobile theme to handle, ive just edited the code for mine but others may wish to do it globally. Once you have that you can style it how ever you like with alot of playing around.
