Post Groan Hack 4.1


About this hack:
This hack was requested by users who like my "Post Thank You Hack". Both can run together on the same forum.

This hack adds a "groan" button to all posts. Any user can "groan" at a post. This will reduce the amount of "junk" posts your forum gets.

Features:
  • Uses vBulletin easy Product installer/updater/uninstaller
  • Uses AJAX technology so your users don't have to refresh when they groan at a post.
  • Places an easy to use button next to the edit button
  • Separate looks for postbit and postbit_legacy
  • Places all Groans into one small box
  • Uses only ONE query every time you view a showthread page!
  • Users can't groan twice
  • Guests don't see 'groan' button
  • Counts how many groans a user gives
  • Counts how many groans a post gets
  • Shows how many groans a user gave in every post of his
  • Shows how many groans a user gave in profile
  • Shows how many groans a user got
  • Shows info in profile
  • Search for a users groaned at posts
  • Search for all groaned at posts
  • Administrator can remove all Groans from a single post
  • Users can remove their own Groans (Option to turn it off)
  • Turn on and off hack totally
  • Turn on and off hack for only some forums
  • Option to turn off hack view of date all forums
  • Option to integrate hack with Post Thanks Hack
  • Ban Usergroups
  • Ban Users
  • Uses Phrases
  • Cache Templates

Instead of "Groan"... why not rename it to "complain" or "yell"... or something to describe this more properly?

Agreed.

However, the hack itself is great!

This hack, together with Thank hack, gives users opportunity to "vote" a single post as "good" or "bad" according to their taste. I find it useful for my board, as user received groans will be more careful in his / her next post...

Thank you for great addon. Been waiting for this version too long Plz consider integrate thank and groan in one packet, though

Great! Absolutely awesome.

But why is the Groan Button appearing before the Thanks Button? How to switch this Order?

Solved - changed the Order of processing the PlugIns.
