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.
  • Places an easy to use button next to the edit button
  • Separate looks for postbit and postbit_legacy

Any help appreciated. I need to delete that member's thanks, since he spammed the forums with over 50k thanks.
Can I check your ACP?

Thanks Abe1. I went ahead and just uninstalled then reinstalled the hack to clear the corrupted stats, so there's not much to look at now. Not sure how the member was able to basically make 50k thanks in a couple of hours, but I was running an older version of the hack (5.x I think) when it happened. It's now running the latest version. He was even able to thank posts in threads that were viewable only to moderators. Hopefully it had something to do with the older version.

Can be used with any style but I know nothing about a hide hack.

I searched this thread, but didn't find an answer.

I just installed this today and everything looks great except that the "number of thanks received" and the "number of thanks given" stats aren't showing in postbit legacy.

I put the required manual template edit in both postbit and postbit_legacy, but the text still isn't showing up.

Any ideas?

I just realized the same thing. It does count when it's thanked but it only shows when I'm in my PM box. And yes, I have two styles. What should I do?

Hope I could fix this.
Thank you, Abe!

You have to move the $template_hook near the controls then.
