Importer from Abe's Thanks mod (vB3 / vB4) and vBSEO "Likes" now available in Lite version!



Major Features: Lite

Require a Button Click: Allows you to hide the content of a post, or hie an attachment, until the person clicks a button on the post.

Statistics: Shows the top 5 people for; Giving / Receiving button clicks.

Collapsable postbit stats: Shows how many button clicks a person has given, received etc in the postbit. Admins can determine what statistics can show in the postbit to control sizes etc. The postbit is also collapsable.

Admin Permissions: Control things such as who can click buttons, require button clicks, what shows in postbit, what options can run concurrently, per forum permisions etc.

Reputation: Add / Remove Reputation for each of your button clicks.

Notifications: Receive alerts when a member clicked on one of the buttons for one of your posts.

Import Thanks: Import script to import "thanks" from Abe's [AJAX] Post Thank You Hack on vBulletin.org. It will work with both vB3 and vB4 versions of this mod.

Import Likes: Import script to import "likes" from vBSEO.


Major Features: Pro

Infinite Buttons: Ability to create new buttons to press! No longer do you need to be limited by Thanks / Like / Dislike.

Auto Collapse Posts: Collapses a post so it doesnt show up by using a formulae for button clicks of your choosing.

User Postbit Config: Lets users decide what postbit stats they want to see.

Additional permissions: Un-click a button. Control how many stats show on the statistics page, set permissions per subforum.

Integrated Controls: You can now integrate the button clicking controls into the post footer, like many of you requested.

Buttons in First Post Only: This allows you to only make the first post thankable. If you forum is based around news, releases or anything similar this will allow your users to easily see the quality of the thread in question.

Button Click Anonymity: This feature will be extremely helpful to forums who like the idea of a "dislike" button, but don't like the drama it brings. Now you can set certain buttons to be anonymous - no one will see who clicked.

Post Colour Thresholds: Ever wanted an easy way for members to tell if a post is helpful or trash? Colour thresholds let you change the colour of posts depending on how many clicks of a button they receive. Members can now see at a glance whether or not a post is helpful, interesting or pointless.

No, this mod has its own "HIDE" functionality.

This is a minor visual issue, if they refresh the page it'll go back to normal.

There's only one profile tab for this mod, and it's needed.

Thank you, please let me know the link for the port, and how much it is etc.

Thank you once again.

Ashar. It takes ages when you have bigger forums until it returns.

@Fillip
I had now time to compare the original thank you hack to yours.


Here are my impressions:

-Abe's hack is done in a plain fashion, is free AND offers already anything one needs such as to remove thanks and even to remove any thanks of a post by administrators at the posts directly without to have to go to the admin CP.

-It has no performance issues like yours and displays posts with 7000 thanks quickly without the need to raise php memory to 512 MB!!!.... (128 MB) is enough.
-There is actually no technical reason why since the original did that very well with 128 MByte of php memory.
-The maintenance functions of the original hack ran much faster than yours (same amount of thanks).
-The hottest threads / posts statistic page loads slowly!

-And there is no obvious reason why there should be excess pages at the thanks / likes register! Count inaccurate for performance reason? This makes no sense from a technical POV except it compensates an issue but does not really eliminate it.
Any threads themselves have accurate amount of pages and do not need more than 128 MB php memory to be displayed!

-To pay 60 bucks to have an original free feature to delete thanks is more than questionable with those performance issues.


Consider it as constructive criticism...
Do you plan code / performance optimization?
TBH it would be essential.

Thank you for your reply! Will see if I will be using this hide functionality instead of the other mod then.

Hi,

I can't get the buttons to display. And I already edited the buttons in the Button Management screen and set their Can Click permissions.

Every group has the "can click" marked. What can it be?

Edit: I got it to work.

It looks like this. Which template can I edit to fix the look? Also, can that be place inside the post area above the signature? Thanks

I am a Super Administrator on my forum and I've installed the mod.

When I go to Manage Buttons it says....

'Invalid Button: 0'



I see 'Post Thanks / Like ' on the sidebar under the usernames, but there is no way to actually like a post as there aren't any buttons displaying.

Attachment 147450
This is most commonly the result of CSS settings, namely the background attribute of the .postbitlegacy .postfoot .textcontrols a, .postbit .postfoot .textcontrols a, .eventbit .eventfoot .eventcontrols a { CSS class, in postbit.css.
To fix it, please try the following steps:

Step 1) Remove all the contents of the postbit_control_background StyleVar.
Step 2) If that didn't fix it, please enter the postbit.css file and find the .postbitlegacy .postfoot .textcontrols a, .postbit .postfoot .textcontrols a, .eventbit .eventfoot .eventcontrols a { CSS class, and remove the background: definition.


Putting the bar inside the signature is a Pro-only feature

Check the usergroup permissions per button in the AdminCP

Please try clicking Repair Cache.

Hello I got a tiny problem here, everything my guests sign up and post something their posts get hidden with "This post requires you to click the Likes button to read this content." mainly for new Registered users as well. Is there anything I can fix that? Also I got S-O-M from Glowhost installed too.

Recovery of thanks

I have a special question which could be interesting for others as well:

One has accidentally deleted a user via adminCP. The user has had ~300 posts, some of them have got thanks.
The posts are still there but assigned as guest (userid = 0, AFAIK) but the original username is still there.

A SQL query: UPDATE post SET userid='xxx' WHERE username='Old Name';

...with 'xxx' being the userid number of the new account and 'Old Name' being the user name on those posts....

...reassigned the posts to the new userID. After recount (vb maintenance) they appeared, also the thanks the others gave below the posts. Posts are search-able as well.

But by executing DBTech maintenance I was not able to assign the thanks the others gave him at his posts to the new userprofile, why? It should, shouldn't it?

I mean the thanks all the other users gave have reference to the posts (otherwise whey would not appear below there) and the posts have reference to the new userID.

Do I need to execute an additional SQL query and if yes what would be the right one?

It would be great to find a solution.
Thanks in advance.
