Note: These instructions are for VB 3.8. See post #35 by michal72 for a VB4 adaptation.

First off, the "Likes" system on vBulletin.org is custom and does not use any other hacks- however it is too custom to be released. Instead you can modify an existing mod to do mostly the same thing.

Several people have asked me for info on how to do this so I figured I'd write it up and post it here.

You can see what it looks like on my live forum: New JUOT Likes System (and STFU System) - JUOT - Joe's Ultimate Off Topic



You need the latest version Abe1's Post Thank You Hack (7.7): Here.

What you can see above was done with this mod plus some phrase changes and template edits, and an optional plugin edit.

So step 1 is make sure you have the “Thank You” mod installed and working.

Step 2 is to change the following phrases. In Admin CP use Phrase Manager to "translate" these phrases from "Thank You" to "Like(s)":

You can of course use your own translations but this is what I used-

Phrase Name | Translation:
post_thanks_already | You have already liked this post!
post_thanks_remove_user | Remove Your Like
post_thanks_search | Find All Liked Posts
post_thanks_search_user | Find all liked posts by {1}
post_thanks_search_user_gave | Find all posts liked by {1}
post_thanks_thanked_post | Liked Post
post_thanks_thanks | Likes
post_thanks_time_post | Liked 1 Time in 1 Post
post_thanks_times_post | Liked {1} Times in 1 Post
post_thanks_times_posts | Liked {1} Times in {2} Posts
post_thanks_total_thanks | Total Likes
post_thanks_user_says | The Following User Likes This Post:
post_thanks_users_say | The Following {1} Users Like This Post:

Some of the above we won't actually use in my implementation but best to fix them all to be consistent.

Step 3:

At this point we need to have a "like.png" file in your images/buttons/ directory and the button directory for every custom style you have, if any. I will attach a couple of options but consider finding or making one unique to your forum.

Step 4:

Now we have to edit a couple of templates.

Edit the template: post_thanks_button

Replace it all with this:


Kod Blok Kilitli:      (Kayıt veya giriş yapmalısın)  
Engellenmiş, kayıtlı olmayan veya onay bekleyen kişiler kodlara erişemezler.

Note: The above template will work correct if you use the "Post Groan Hack" which I also use. You can convert the "Post Groan Hack" into an "dis-like" system basiclly the same way we are changing "Thank You" to "Likes."


Edit the template: post_thanks_postbit_legacy OR post_thanks_postbit (whichever postbit you use)

Replace it all with this:


Kod Blok Kilitli:      (Kayıt veya giriş yapmalısın)  
Engellenmiş, kayıtlı olmayan veya onay bekleyen kişiler kodlara erişemezler.


At this point you should have a nice light-green "Like" box appearing below each post someone "Likes." You might want to stop here.

The last steps are only if you want to integrate the Like box INTO the posts like on my forum.

If you do the next step is pretty easy-

In Admin CP -> Plugin Manager, edit the plugin: Post Thank You Hack on hook: postbit_display_start

Find the line:


Kod Blok Kilitli:      (Kayıt veya giriş yapmalısın)  
Engellenmiş, kayıtlı olmayan veya onay bekleyen kişiler kodlara erişemezler.

and change it to:


Kod Blok Kilitli:      (Kayıt veya giriş yapmalısın)  
Engellenmiş, kayıtlı olmayan veya onay bekleyen kişiler kodlara erişemezler.

OK This will move the "Like" box into the actual post table instead of below it.

Again this is a good place to stop if you are happy.

However there is one more template edit I did to keep the Like Box inside the post but at the very bottom of it regardless how short the post might be. In this case we must edit the postbit_legacy template. (I don't use the regular postbit template so I don't have any further instructions for people who use regular postbit. The following is ONLY for postbit_legacy.)

IMPORTANT- Copy all of your postbit_legacy template to a text file and save it as a backup in case you make an error or the instructions don't work for you. You can also "Revert" the template but that will undo ALL customizations you may have made.

Find in postbit_legacy:


Kod Blok Kilitli:      (Kayıt veya giriş yapmalısın)  
Engellenmiş, kayıtlı olmayan veya onay bekleyen kişiler kodlara erişemezler.

Change it to:


Kod Blok Kilitli:      (Kayıt veya giriş yapmalısın)  
Engellenmiş, kayıtlı olmayan veya onay bekleyen kişiler kodlara erişemezler.

Find:


Kod Blok Kilitli:      (Kayıt veya giriş yapmalısın)  
Engellenmiş, kayıtlı olmayan veya onay bekleyen kişiler kodlara erişemezler.

And delete it.

Find:


Kod Blok Kilitli:      (Kayıt veya giriş yapmalısın)  
Engellenmiş, kayıtlı olmayan veya onay bekleyen kişiler kodlara erişemezler.


Add BELOW it:


Kod Blok Kilitli:      (Kayıt veya giriş yapmalısın)  
Engellenmiş, kayıtlı olmayan veya onay bekleyen kişiler kodlara erişemezler.

----

And that should do it.

Of course you are encouraged to make some customizations... Most of what you'll want to change is in the top part of the post_thanks_postbit_legacy template. The background color, border style, and the like are all controlled by this code:


Kod Blok Kilitli:      (Kayıt veya giriş yapmalısın)  
Engellenmiş, kayıtlı olmayan veya onay bekleyen kişiler kodlara erişemezler.

On my forum I actually use a background image texture but did not include it here as it is an unnecessary complication.

Feel free to play around and tweak the box to your liking.
