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.

I've followed this:

1. Upload all files from the "upload" folder to your forums directory.

2. CHMOD the following folders to 0777
/dbtech/thanks/vbactivity_type

3. Import the product-dbtech_thanks.xml file from the "XML" folder at AdminCP ->
Plugins & Products -> Manage Products -> Add/Import Product

4. Configure your Usergroup settings by clicking "Manage Buttons" under
"DBTech - Post Thanks" in your AdminCP navigation menu, then
editing each button and setting your usergroup permissions from there.


however there is no where that i can see in my admin cp that i can amend the permissions (see red). That has left the mod visibile on my forum but i cannot select anything

Please advise

I have this installed and love it.
One thing I have noticed is that I must have it enabled for guests which I don't mind but when a guest click on it, it doesn't show a name.

Surely it should show 'guest'?

We do offer an integrated button option in the Pro version. We will also make further layout optimisations in the future

Also, is there a way to remove the postbit info? Or to have the info listed somewhere else? Trying to cut down on the postbit clutter.

Thanks!
The importer is a Pro-only feature. Sadly the postbit information cannot be hidden at this time, though we will update it in the future with more display options

Please either give your account Super Admin permissions via config.php or use your Super Admin account to give your account Can Administer Thanks

It is not intended for guests to be able to click the buttons, the reason why Unregistered usergroup still has that option is because I can't exclude it from the settings array.

I'm quite happy for guests to be able to click as I only have the like & thanks button enabled. Is there a way I can make guest show for when a guest clicks it?
