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

Hi,

i upgraded from 6.0 to 6.3. Now i receive the following error if someone tries to use the Thank feature:

Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in/includes/functions_post_thanks.php (Row 183)

I made some custom changes to the function_post_thanks.php. But i uploaded the original one with the same error.

vB Version is 3.6.8. I hope that someone can help me.

*eek*, you are right, I missed the post_thanks_admin.php.

While /me standing ashamed in the corner, could you be so kind to answer to my first question as well, as unfortunately & in contrary to my hope, "special actions" doesn't contain a switch "turn off the thank you-stuff information in users profiles" ...:

Going through this thread here, I saw that in former versions, it was possible to alter a/some template(s), but now I'm unsure which template has to be changed (and how) to avoid this information being displayed.

Going through the templates belonging to the Hack (which are altogether 9, as far as I see in the AdminCP), I'd presume that something has to be changed in the post_thanks_member_info and maybe in the postbit_***?
Thanks in advance!

Thanks. Worked like a charm. Now I just need to modify phrases a little for my site.

Great hack BTW!

Just wondering, what's the best way to reset the stats manually (# of thanks)? I think it'd be great if a feature exists that supports resetting stats automatically (ie: every 30 days), but in the meantime, just wondering what the best way is to do this manually.

I wouldn't advise it unless you remove all the thanks also.

I would love to see a Leaderboard or Top Ten addon to this, to show the users getting the most thanks. (I could have sworn I saw someone either request this already or announce their own addon, but can't find it now.)
