Post Thank You Hack

STAFF EDIT:
Note - The mod author has been unreachable for some time, but the vbulletin.org community has stepped up to provide a number of individual fixes over the years. ForceHSS, Hippy, and Seven Skins have all combined many of these fixes into product files.

ALL CREDIT STILL GOES TO ABE1 And this is still 'his' mod. Please still mark the mod as installed if you use any version of it.

That said so you don't need to apply a dozen + small fixes yourself you should consider downloading one of the updated packages below:

Hippy has one in this post.

AND / OR

ForceHSS has one in this post.

AND/OR

Seven Skins has one in this post.


- Original File Specs: post_thanks_7_82.zip (26.4 KB, 24844 downloads) - Original file removed, replaced with patched files including search fix (some admins noticed hackers attempting to use outdated code to exploit search in attempt to gain administrator password or similar).
- There are five total patched versions available, some with and without the search fix - I've replaced the main file with the patched versions... please be sure to download and install the correct version, the main mod post contains links to additional information and patched files!
- If Abe1 returns he can request these packages be removed.


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
  • Places all Thanks into one small box
  • Uses only ONE query every time you view a showthread page!
  • Users can't thank twice
  • Option to not allow users to thank their own post

  • Counts how many thanks a post gets
  • Shows how many thanks a user gave in every post of his
  • Shows how many thanks a user gave in profile
  • Shows how many thanks a user got
  • Shows how many posts or a user are thanked
  • Shows info in profile

Yes you can. The solution is given numerous times in this thread, most recently on the previous page:

1. open product-post_thanks.xml in a plain text editor

2. Find:


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

3. Replace it with:


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

4. Save and import in Admin CP >> Products & Plugins >> Manage Products >> Add New Product

Hi guys,

I've also installed this MOD on vBulletin 4.1.4. My problem is that somehow, it's not using AJAX to register the "Thanks!", but instead it does a simple HTTP GET (you can even see the link when you hold the mouse pointer on top of the button).

It's annoying because people get their pages reloaded and they end up on top of the page instead of reading further through the thread.

Anyone else seen this?

Thanks!

My reply is related to people who had the "Refresh" problem when a user would Thank someone.

Thanks!

I read 25 pages to find the solution and now I'm really happy I found it!

For the rest of the people who used to have Post Groan Hack installed along with Post Thanks Hack (for which there's still no 4.x version) to the following:

Go to Settings -> Options -> Post Groan Hack -> Integrate this hack with Post Thanks Hack? (at the bottom of the page) and set to NO.

It doesn't matter if the Groan hack is disabled.

is there a trick how i get the "search for thx posts" button in my profile.. i have the profile info "Show Stats in Profile" activated in the settings... but all i can see is:

Total Thanks
Total Thanks X
Thanked X Time in X Post


but no button to search for the posts....?

But the settings info tells: "(These stats come along with links to search all posts that user gave thanks to and all posts of his/hers that got thanked by someone else.)" ???

Try to replace template (post_thanks_memberinfo_block) with this:
