About This File

Warning: Does not work on IPB4.

This modification adds the ability for members to thank posters via Ajax. In addition, it keeps track of the number of times each member has been thanked and displays it in each post. It is very light-weight and adds no additional queries to the Topic View. It can automatically collapse the thankers if the list is too long. It can also integrate with (T30) Hide Content to show hidden content in posts simply by clicking the Thanks Button. Upon clicking the Thanks Button, the thanks will be added via Ajax and the thanks box below the post will flash three times to indicate that the post has been thanked. Finally, users can later choose to Remove Thanks if they regret clicking the button.

If you bought this modification on Invisionize and need the new version for IPB 3.4.x, please PM me your transaction ID and PayPal e-mail that you used when you purchased the mod.

The price of the mod is $12 because IPS comission is 10% + $0.50, meaning I would only get around $10 from the money, which is the original price of this modification on Invisionize.

User Feedback

I'm also not sure what this offers over the existing "Like This".

Does this add to a person's reputation, which the "Like This" already does?

6-12 months later, if this mod is not still supported would people lose all their Thanks?


I could see this also easily being adapted as a RSVP option. Just disable "Thanking" on Replies, and change the name to "RSVP".

Yes, this is a really big problem with all paid and non-paid hooks/apps.
I learn from my experience and I stay only with the ips apps/hooks.

@stimo, you can achieve that by searching the language strings in ACP for 'thanks' and replacing the appropriate language value with:

<span style="color: blue">Thanks</span>

@Dreamlander, a lot of people prefer the thanks functionality over the likes, the listing of every one who thanked the author below each post, and the number of times a person has been thanked. Plus, everyone loves Ajax. :) Anyway, this hook was developed before IPS implemented the like feature, and many people already got accustomed to pressing the thanks button. The like feature is only since IPB 3.2.

@Freeborne, it does not add to a person's reputation. It is standalone. Also, I will keep supporting the mod as long as new IPB versions are released. :) I always support my mods, as fast as I can. And yes, very easy to change the wording to RSVP, via the ACP language tools. :)

You really shouldnt worry about the support, Im not going anywhere :)

I would also like to know whether this mod will be upgraded for IP.Board 4.

 

I hope a version of this mod does come out soon for IP.Board version 4.x.

 

Does anybody know if there is an alternative mod out there for IP.Board 4?
