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.

No change for me.

Also the importer brought in incorrect numbers from VBSEO. Some members have the same count.

Please make sure you have uploaded all the files, re-imported the templates, and reverted all customised APTL templates.

I uploaded them again. Looks like that worked.
Except that when I do 'like' a post, the icons images change to an 'X'

I tried to run maintenance to fix the counts. But they never finish. No error just stops.

Going to reinstall to clear the numbers and try the importer again.

In the product's general settings, set "Manual Postbit Deployment" to "Yes" and then in a plugin hooked at "postbit_display_complete" use the condition:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

to make sure the user's settings are honored with respect to whether they wish for the data to be displayed, and use the variables:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

wrapped in whatever HTML you desire, added to whichever template hook you want.

Hi,
in the 3.6.3 Pro, the given Like/Thanks are not displayed in the Postbit
Back on 3.6.2 they are displayed.

Hey Fillip, I just got this installed after removing another thanks mod. after getting everything uploaded and xml imported and setting the permissions this is what I have on the manage buttons menu. You can see on threads that it is installed only because of the footer, but there is nothing in the posts as far as any buttons. not sure what I'm doing wrong with this. maybe from the file edit in step 4 of the read-me?

Run the "Repair Cache" function, then you should be ready to begin setting up your buttons.

It's part of DBTech's product, you can find it on the menu, right above "Settings"...(check your screenshot).
