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

It works in my 3.6.9 for the most part. The only thing that doesn't show is the "[username] has been thanked X times". Which is likely me screwing up somewhere again..

I can only tell you that I followed the 3.6.8 upload instructions (and my idiotic mistake was uploading the "upload_via_ftp" folder, rather than uploading the contents of that folder into the appropriate vBulletin folders on my server), and did not edit the templates.

My skin is iSkin from extremepixels.

after that our domain has filtered in our country and we registered some new domains and used "Parked Domains" but vs-hide hack not worked on new domains and we tried to ask supporters to make a key file to use with some other domains (But on one site).
They supporters did not answer me from months ago !!!!
Now I saw new version of your hack support all of our need but the problem is calculated reputations and count on thanks !
I mean if I install your hack can I import all thanks count and reputation level that calculated with thanks and other informations from vs-hide hack?

thanks alot
YOOOOHOOOOO !!!!

The 3.6.8 upload instructions make no sense for 3.6.9 because all the template edits are already done. There are no template edits to do, but the system still doesn't work.

You're right, the template edits are already done, but apparently they're not necessary, as this hack does work (see attachment) in 6.9.


I'm still trying to figure out how to show the "user was thanked X times" in the post profile, it shows up the in user profile just fine.

Hi,

I installed v6.4 about 6 months ago and at the time, I managed to change the text that says "The Following User Says Thank You to **** For This Useful Post:" to "Thanked By", but when I updated to v7.4 today, I am back to the original text.

I have had a look through this thread and the answer seems to be "edit the template", so would someone be kind enough to tell me which template I need to edit please?

Thanks

There is a style error in this mod.
When the Post Thank You Hack plugin is enabled at postbit_display_complete, Firefox reports the error:
Error in parsing value for property 'display'. Declaration dropped.
http://www.avforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=nnnnnn
once for each post.

I'm pretty certain the problem is in the post_thanks_button template.
style="display:$display_thanks_image"

This is the exact problem I am having too. There is obviously an issue with 3.6.9. Why isn't the author supporting this? It says supported.
