Hi Naguissa,

This looks very promising, especially since I'm using Tapatalk. Can you please provide a few more details?
  • Is there support for notifications? For example if someone thanks me, will I get a notification?
  • What if Tapatalk gets updated? Will you provide continuously updated mobiquo folders?
  • Is the total number of received thanks also displayed on memberlist_view.html?
  • Who can give and receive thanks? Does this extension use the permission system of phpBB?
  • Does this extension come with a top list or integration in memberlist_body.html?
Thank you!

Hello Jackennils,


It's a port of 3.1 extension, updated to new 3.2 notifications changes, few prototypes tweaks and added support for Tapatal needs.

  • Is there support for notifications? For example if someone thanks me, will I get a notification?
  • Yes, it's one of the updates done for 3.2 support
  • What if Tapatalk gets updated? Will you provide continuously updated mobiquo folders?
  • Yes, that's why tapatalk repository has its version numbers: <tapatalk-version>-r<revision-number>
  • Is the total number of received thanks also displayed on memberlist_view.html?
  • No. It's displayed at members profile and there's an optional ranking prior index footer. See below for pictures.
  • Who can give and receive thanks? Does this extension use the permission system of phpBB?
  • Yes, it uses permissions systen, so you can configure that. It's also used on Tapatalk.
  • Does this extension come with a top list or integration in memberlist_body.html?
    Toplist. And also extra information in profile, posts, minicard... See pictures below.

Oh! In addition:

- There's a rating system for posts. It's functional but I really don't like it too much. It's not available on Tapatalk. You can disable iit if you want (I have it disabled).

- I've submited a support ticket to Tapatalk. If they want they can integrate the changes on the plugin.

I was using original mod on phpbb-seo.

Then, I moved to extension (with lot of migration problems) when I migrated my forum to 3.1

And now, using 3.2 forum, I needed that extension fixed.


That's why I made it.

Also, as I have a very old phone (original Jolla phone, 3 and half years old), I prefer to use Tapatalk. That's why I worked on supporting it.


At the end, this kind of extensions prevents a lot of "tahnks", "+1" and other empty posts. Yo can simply click "Thanks" button and you don't have the need to fill a thread with useless posts.



And well, that's why I will keep it up for sure.

As I didn't change any folder, event, database or nothing, it should be as easy as simply update the extension. You can use extension uploader or delete old extension and upload new one at same place.

It's valid for rxu extension, not for original mod.

I had trouble updating from old mod to rxu extension when I migrated to phpbb 3.1. I had to remove some of migrations and clean permissions manually.

From what version are you updating? And what's your phpbb version? Remember, this is ONLY for 3.2

Oh, I didn't saw that branch! I picked original code from master, thinking it was abandoned (or mostly abandoned).

Well, changes are more-or-leess similar, but I added few extra things to support Tapatalk.

You could proceed as:
1) Disable rxu extension
2) Rename original folder to "thanks_for_posts.bak"
3) Upload this extension folder as "thanks_for_posts". Then will be at the same place as original.
4) Clear cache (on general tab in ACP)
5) Reload extensions page
6) Activate this extension.
7) Maybe clear cache again.

White page could be because an update without disabling extension or cache problems.
