Post Thank You Hack 7.7


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.

I'll be surprised if it's a conflict with another plug in.

I can't tell you why it's not working for some people, although I suspect some sort of conflict with another add-on and/or a custom style.
For me too. Also i have installed [hide], and when I press thanks button I have this problem

"Your submission could not be processed because a security token was missing.

If this occurred unexpectedly, please inform the administrator and describe the action you performed before you received this error."

and I don't know where to go to fix it.

Please someone help me.

I don't knlow what "[hide]" is.

Try searching for "secjurity token" here and at vbulletin.com. I recall that this was added to vB a while back and that several add-ons were affected by the change. There was a fix posted somewhere... just can't recall where now.

Abe,

I'm trying to get this functional into a mobile skin and the postbit legacy template is a bit unorthodox, here's the format currently operating on this skin, using simply text for the common commands.

In order to call the thanks and groan buttons what would I need to add to this template?

Hey, have you ever thought about setting up an option so that a member is notified when they are thanked?

How hard would this be to do?

Tulsa in my mobile themes that are based for iphones or blackberrys i just added
$template_hook[postbit_controls]

Sadly this causes mobile pages to reload when thanks are given i have not figured out a way to correct that i hope someone post with a better way to do it but if not at least you know of one way that works.

Also if you use hacks like the panic button or simular you will need to go into the template for that hack and remove everything. so that they will not show up in your mobile theme

To remove the amount of times you have thanked someone and to keep the amount of thanks recieved, edit the following template and replace with;

post_thanks_postbit_info
