Author Notes:
A mod which allows you to thank a post that a user has posted.
When the Thanks button is pressed a page is displayed showing the user that they have successfully thanked the other user for their post.

You can choose whether that page should be a popup or not by editing the $popup_enabled to 0 or 1 in viewtopic.php and thanks.php
If set to 0, the user is shown the thanks page on the current window and will be automatically redirected to the post they thanked.

You can view the thanks given and thanks received by a user in the topic under their username.
You are shown the users who have thanked the specific post.
When a post has been deleted, the thanked received for the poster is decreased as well as the thanks given by other users.

You can enable or disable this mod for each forum via the ACP -> Forum Admin -> Management.
This mod is set to 'disabled' as default, therefore you will have to enable it on which ever forums you want.

Please post any problems or ways to improve this mod here.
There is a thank topic mod around but not a thank post mod as far as I can tell.
As requested from http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=440526

Yep it works with EasyMOD. You don't need to do a DB update as EasyMOD handles that as well :). Once installed with EasyMOD it's all ready.

You should already have a Cobalt folder, so yeah you'll need to put the files from Subsilver to the Cobalt folder and manually edit the Cobalt.cfg and viewtopic_body.tpl files.

Well we edit the Subsilver.cfg and the viewtopic_body.tpl for the Subsilver style when installing this mod so we have to do the same for the Cobalt style.

I might install the Cobalt style and make you a custom install file for the Cobalt style, but you will have to create your own icon_thank.gif to fit with the style.

Ok I'm done.

Before installing the mod with EasyMOD you'll have to firstly copy the Cobalt.cfg and viewtopic_body.tpl from the templates/Cobalt/ directory to your main forum directory.

Then install the mod and copy those two files back to the templates/Cobalt/ directory.

You have to do this moving files because for some reason the Cobalt directory is read-only which makes EasyMOD have problems.

http://www.uzzisoft.com/projects/thank_ ... cobalt.zip

I've included the two files in the contrib folder just incase something doesn't work.

So place Cobalt.cfg and viewtopic_body.tpl in Forum root, then install with EasyMOD, then place Cobalt.cfg and viewtopic_body.tpl into root/templates/cobalt ?

cheers

Hello alexi02,

thank you for the mod! Just two short questions:

- Will there be any problem when you delete or move a thread/posting which has been thanked?
- How many additional queries does your mod add to the viewtopic pages?

Greetings from Austria!
Wolfgang

To upgrade from v0.1.0 to v0.1.1, just copy over the new thanks.php file.
