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.

I was wondering if and if yes how I could I search for thanked posts in a given month - ideally what I would like to do is add another search option "Posts thanked this month".

I think there was a mesage about that earlier like on page 2 or 3 that said this would only work on 3.5.4 and up or something to that nature.

No there is nothing about. There is a reference from some more members for the same problem but actually nobody replied or proposed something that solves the problem or explains clearly that does not work with earlier versions as 3.5.3 or 3.5.4. That's I'm asking for. Thanks anyway for your reply.

P.S. Finally I resolved the problem by installing the previous version of this hack and it works fine. Thanks to Abe1.

One of my users is reporting that the buttons don't show up for him as he is on Safari (mac). Works on a different browser. Any ideas on that one?

The problem is much worse.Google has cached most links as

and only getting No Permission Messages Instead of The contents of the Thread.

Yikes. I'm really hoping we can get this sorted out, because I depend heavily on the search engines, especially google, and have vBSEO installed as well.

Abe1 - this is a great mod but I can't use it on my live forum (almost 2 million posts) because searching for 'thanks' just brings the forum to a virtual stop. I notice you mention on the 3.5 version thread you were going to look into this perhaps by indexing some fields? Also related to this is there a way to limit searches to just posts thanked this month?

Isn't this just because when it's crawling posts, it sees a link (the thank you button) and tries to crawl that too?

It doesn't necessarily mean that your posts aren't getting crawled, just that these links (which are getting No Permission) are being crawled as well.

I may be wrong.
