What this forum needs is...
« on: July 16, 2009, 09:23:52 PM »
...a Thank You button. I occasionally feel the urge to thank others for useful information.

I have researched this, there is 2 plugins that will do it.

Both are by the same author, one is like the phpBB style, and only has thanks for the first post in the thread. The other allows thanks for all posts in the thread.

Thank You Mod (phpBB style):
http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=257

Thank-O-Matic (vB style):
http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=710

rejetto can decide which one suits best. I like how the vB style one hides the thanks and shows them when you click a link. I don't really like how it shows the thanks given and received (maybe seen for profile though) in the persons avatar area. But maybe with some small modification that can be removed. It is hard to decide which is the better plugin for this forum, the vB style seems more detailed. I also think only registered users should be allowed to thank, otherwise we'll get bot central.

i installed the vb-style plugin, but i don't see the thank you buttons yet.
i enabled first 2 options in "features > thank-o-matic"
and first 2 options in "permissions > regular members > thank-o-matic"

That's strange, can't say I have had much experience with SMF plugins though.

Thank You

I see Thank You in our profile and in the webpages now.  I don't see any buttons or anything else to activate this feature.  What am I missing?

After 10 thanks, rejetto gives us the mobile number of the "hotties" of Berlusconi. ;D

Au bout de 10 mercis, rejetto nous donne le numéro de portable des "chaudasses" de Berlusconi. ;D

it took me hours to get this working.
very smart from them to name a field "thank_you_post_enable" and have 1 to disable it, and 0 to enable it.
>_<

With every 50 thanks received you get one silvio.png ( ... like an 'oscar'). Danger: His delusions of grandeur are contagious! :D
If your ratio post/thanks received is below 0.1638, you get a tabouret.png : climb on it and you feel so great as a nicolas. ;D

With its heelpiece Nicolas the eighth dwarf, found his Snow White ... But no miracle he is still too small inside. He reminds me of the fable of La Fontaine: «The frog who wanted to become as big as the Ox».

Grâce à ses talonnettes Nicolas le huitième nain a trouvé sa Blanche Neige... Mais pas de miracle il est toujours aussi petit à l'intérieur. Il me rappelle la fable de La Fontaine: «La grenouille qui voulait devenir aussi grosse que le bœuf».  ;)
