RE: [Release 1.4.x] Thank You/Like System (Update: v1.1 Released) - Dylan M. - 2009-12-01

Relax G33K Wink I wasn't having an attitude... especially not with such a great plugin. We were just trying to avoid giving a test account because we're very private. Ending up having too was OK in the end I guess, but I wish I hadn't been incommunicado from Goggalor for almost 2 weeks keeping me from being able to really look into it codewise. So thanks. Smile


RE: [Release 1.4.x] Thank You/Like System (Update: v1.1 Released) - spinning - 2009-12-01

I found what is wrong however my default language is English I had to confirm this once, then it works.
But now the other problem is its only showed on the first post in every thread.
Post 2, 3, 4, 5 etc does not have this button.

- Works for all modes of views, classic, modern, linear, threaded.

- Install and Activate the plugin from the Admin Panel, Plugins section.

IV. UNINSTALL:
This plugin has 2 parts to uninstalling. This is done to preserve all the data that is tracked by the plugin for all the Thank Yous/Likes during a routine Deactivate/Uninstall to either troubleshoot an issue with your board or to upgrade forum software.

**To Uninstall the plugin in order to update either the plugin or MyBB or any other reason:**
- Deactivate the plugin from the Admin Plugins menu. This will preserve all the Thank Yous/Like data which tracks which user has Thanked/Liked which post so that when you reinstall the plugin the data will be available.

------------------------------------

**To COMPLETELY UNINSTALL the plugin including all the data that tracks the Thank Yous/Likes for every user and post you will need to do the following:**
WARNING: FOLLOWING THE STEPS BELOW WILL COMPLETELY REMOVE ALL OF THE Thank You/Like DATA FOR EVERY USER AND POST. DO THIS ONLY IF YOU ARE NO LONGER PLANNING TO USE THE PLUGIN, WANT TO START OVER CLEAN OR YOU HAVE A BACKUP OF THE DATA.
- First deactivate and uninstall the Thank You/Like plugin from the plugins menu.
- Next, Upload the uninstallthankyoulike.php file from the Uninstaller folder to /inc/plugins on your server.
- Activate once and Deactivate the Uninstaller plugin. Make sure no error messages show up on the plugin info for the Uninstaller.
- After deactivating you can safely delete all the uninstaller and Thank You/Like Plugin Files. The plugin is completely removed.


V. MORE INFORMATION:
This section is for those who want to know more about the plugin, specifically which templates the plugin changes and new ones that it offers. Users who are using a customized template and are not satisfied with the default layout that the plugin provides may want to look in this section on how to customize the plugin and which templates to edit.

Templates Added:

Global>thankyoulike
Template containing The block with the list of users who have Thanked/Liked a post for the default view.
Global>thankyoulike_classic
Template containing The block with the list of users who have Thanked/Liked a post for the classic view.
Global>thankyoulike_expcollapse
Template For the Expand/Collapse image which Expands/Collapses the block of Thank Yous/Likes.
Global>thankyoulike_button_add
Template for the button to add Thank You/Like. If you do not want to use an image, change it to text here.
Global>thankyoulike_button_del
Template for the button to delete Thank You/Like. If you do not want to use an image, change it to text here.
Global>thankyoulike_users
Template for the list of users who have Thanked/Liked a post
Global>thankyoulike_memprofile
Template for the section added to user's profile which shows the number of Thank Yous/Likes stats.

Templates Changed:

Show Thread Templates>showthread
Changes to include the jscript for the plugin.
Post Bit Templates>potbit
Changes to include the Add/Remove Thank You/Like button and the block for the Thank Yous/Likes for the default view.
Post Bit Templates>postbit_classic
Changes to include the Add/Remove Thank You/Like button and the block for the Thank Yous/Likes for the classic view.
Post Bit Templates>postbit_author_user
Changes to include the number of user's Thank Yous/Likes in the postbit stats of the user.
Member Templates>member_profile
Changes to include the section in user's profile to show Thank Yous/Likes stats.

Recounting and Rebuilding the Thank You/Like stats:
If for any reason your stats seem off you can recount the Thank Yous/Likes. Doing so will remove any orphaned Thank Yous/Likes and recount them for each user and post. Orphaned Thank Yous/Likes are those that might have been left behind on a post or user being deleted by not using the mod interface (like directly from the databse for example).

Notes:
- Permissions for if a user can Thank/Like a post is dependant on whether they can post in that thread or not. Guests, however can never thank/like a post regardless of guest post option.
- Obviously, the post opener will not be able to Thank/Like the post.
- Deleting a thread/post will remove all its related Thank Yous/Likes and reduce the count for the users who have Thanked/Liked that thread/post.
- Merging posts will merge the Thank Yous/Likes too removing duplicates and updating counts.
- Deleting a user will remove all the user's Thank Yous/Likes from all the posts.
- If you move a thread to a forum that has been set to exclude Thank Yous/likes it will not show any Thank Yous/likes and will not allow adding/removing any Thank Yous/Likes while in that forum. The Thank Yous/Likes will however be preserved so that they will be visible again if the thread is moved out of the excluded forum.

There is a setting there to choose whether you want to show thanks only on first post or all posts.

Could I have a test account so I can have a look at it.

This plugin does not make any changes to user cp templates. As for the other templates, the plugin uses a search and replace to insert the needed templates so with non-default templates it sometimes will not find the correct place to insert the template edit. In that case you need to check the templates to make sure the template edits are there.

Anyway, let me have that test account so I can check it out.

G33K, when they say user CP they mean profile page Wink


RE: [Release 1.4.x] Thank You/Like System (Update: v1.1 Released) - - G33K - - 2009-12-02

I've been raking my brain out for the past couple of hours trying to get to the root of the problem with the loading image getting stuck in some IE versions and I think (I hope) I've found what the problem was. I'm still trying to test it properly before doing a proper release, however, I'm attaching a thankyoulike.php file here for those who have been having problem on IE to try out and see if it fixes your problems. That way I can be sure its been fixed.
Overwrite this file with the one in the forum root NOTE: THIS FILE GOES IN THE FORUM ROOT, NOT IN THE PLUGINS FOLDER!

This file is only to fix the loading issue in IE, if you're having the loading issue in other browsers too check your templates first.

Also, Goggalor, although I haven't yet tested this in IE7, it is possible that you might have been having the issue in IE7 due to the bug I found here, so please test out this file and let me know how it goes.


RE: [Release 1.4.x] Thank You/Like System (Update: v1.1 Released) - Anmato - 2009-12-02

Hey, after update MyBB script to version 1.4.10 we have a problem.

Counter and fuctions work good, but all new posts are counted to postlist, where I helped. All posts.

That's a mistake.

Please help, e-work[at]o2.pl

Thanks and I'll report back when I fully test this out.
IT WORKS PERFECTLY!

Thank you so much for this! It's a great plugin. Your hard work is appreciated!
I would like to add one more thing. I can deal with the template editing as mentioned on page 6 but you should know it's not very consistent. I installed this on my test board where you looked the other day and it' inserts all the correct edits in the correct places. On others it does not. I have no idea why this would happen as the only edits I needed to do were in the member profile template. All the others were fine. My template for member profiles is not customized at all.

This seems to be random. But again, for me not a big deal, just thought you'd like to know for any future updates.


RE: [Release 1.4.x] Thank You/Like System (Update: v1.1 Released) - Dark Lord Skippy - 2009-12-02

Ok... I d/l the file from MyBB and uploaded it properly. Triple-checked to make sure I uploaded all the pertinent files correctly.

When I went to activate it, I got this:

Quote:MySQL error: 1146
Table 'db197252097.templates' doesn't exist
Query: DELETE FROM templates WHERE title='thankyoulike'

Maybe its a stupid question, but maybe not. How do I fix this?

Thanks.
