Post Thank You Hack 7.4


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!

  • Search for all thanked posts
  • Administrator can remove all Thanks from a single post
  • Users can remove their own Thanks
  • Turn on and off hack totally
  • Turn on and off hack for only some forums
  • Option to turn off hack for all but the first post of a thread
  • Option to turn off hack for all but the first post of a thread in specific forums
  • Option to turn off hack view of date for specific or all forums
  • Option to add to post count when someone clicks 'thanks'.

Thanks: 0
Thanked 0 Times in 0 Posts

If you uninstall the hack you will delete all the thanks. Why did you uninstall it?

No way unless you hack the hack.

You are NOT suppose to remove a product before installing an upgrade unless the deloper says specifically to do so. You loose all data you collected already.

I had reported this bug before in the version for vB3.5.x but you didn't solve it.

The bug is: even I prevent Guests and Spiders (usergroupID = 1) from using the post thank you button (see this picture 2.JPG), spiders (like google) press the post thank you button and get error messages (see this picture 1.JPG)

When we look at the page source for guests we will see this code:


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

the link is still existing but the button photo isn't, google doesn't understand ajax features and procces them as if they were normal links.

I added the rel="nofollow" but google doesn't obey it.

Please solve this problem.
