The release is pretty much ready to go so I'll wait a couple of days for translations to come in before I upload it.

Is it difficult to upload a new version? Just curious as I know nothing about these things and I'm hella impatient. :P

It's not difficult, I only delayed it to sqeeze more features in. One of which is the one you wanted so if anything you should be happy I delayed it  :laugh:

The ability to turn the thanks system off for certain boards would be most welcome...

That's an interesting feature, what's the reason for limiting the thanking system to certain boards?
To me it would be useful for instance with boards dedicated to regulations and stuff like that where you don't really need to thank the administrator for having posted it ;) that's IMO, of course.

It's so powerful that on this post and even in the two PMs you sent me,you still answered my question very quickly and you're apologizing for the delay. You're the #1 support I've probably ever encountered man, so much respect for that. Thank you, and get better soon.

I'll keep this in my siggy for a while just to remind me that someone appreciated what I did while others didn't.

That's the opposite for me, I like getting thanked for posting announcements, rules and other regulation stuff  ;D

In my case it is better if I get thanked for posting solutions to something or even informations XD but I get your point :P up to you anyway :)

We use our forum as a staff meeting room and it contains information from training information to price changes etc. There are one or two areas where there is one single post usually pointing a new staff member to a link etc., so the minimum we have on these "new user" pages the better - well until they are used to the system.

Many of our staff members are at best only basically PC literate and it's initially an uphill struggle... :)

One thing I love about 'Say Thanks' is that if a member leaves, their thanks go with them... I had an issue with Thank'O'Matic where it would leave the members name in black.

Hi Everyone,

New version 1.1 is up now.

@JimZA, sound reasoning. Shall consider the feature for next release. On the thanks leaving with the member, I can't take any credit for that, that wasn't a conscious design decision  ;D

This may sound a silly question but do I need to uninstall 1.02 ?

If so, will previous data be lost ?

@kelvincool
Could you kindly parse the modifications you have made? Because I have a bunch of stuff failing and I wouldn't like to do all the edits in reverse... If you want you can send those in private, it's not a problem :)
Thanks in advance also for the update :)

Why can't you do it? The mod site will tell you the changes a mod makes, if you edit it that is really your problem, not the mod author's.
Don’t try to tell me that some power can corrupt a person. You haven’t had enough to know what it’s like.

I mean the edits from 1.0 to 1.1 not the actual edits, there is no compare function and I would like to save about an hour checking each file to see what changes have been made, while the mod author should know it pretty well since he did those changes ;)

Again, you will have to do this yourself.

You have the edits from 1.0 in your package manager (since it can tell you the edits by clicking on the little paper icon), you have the edits for 1.1 on the mod site, and any changes you've made are your own business that you will have to figure out.

SMF will ask you if you want to delete the data when you uninstall so it is safe to uninstall the old one and reinstall the new one without losing data.

@ ♦ Ninja ZX-10RR ♦, not entirely sure what you want, guessing you just want the differences between the install.xml files? Just download WinMerge and compare the two install.xml files to get the differences. Problem solved  :)

@Arantor, I appreciate you looking out for mod authors, we can be a bit too nice sometimes, it's always difficult to say no  ;D

Never actually thought about using Notepad++ that way ;D yeah I noticed the changes. Looks like you rewrote like half of the mod so I will have to do all that painful work again *sigh*, will try tomorrow morning, I'll let you know if I'll see any bugs ;) thanks :)

Sadly, 1.1 crashed my system with cryptic messages saying that my database was 2.01 and I'm running SMF 2.09.

I removed 1.0 and reinstalled 1.02 and this now gives 'Say Thanks' five times across the top of the post and if you press the button it shows post has been thanked at least five times!

We're now running without any Thanks system but I'll take the board offline on Sunday and will try to correct the errors.

I'm guessing that some of the files have inadvertently been patched multiple times?

Any suggestions on what files to look at?

That didn't happen on my test forum... Strange. Very strange. When you installed it was it failing somewhere? Did you actually uninstall the previous version before installing the newer one with no errors even at uninstall?
Plus... No link nor accurate quote of the error :/ can't possibly help more :/

@kelvincool I will update the translation again in a while, I have seen some strings were not translated... I just need to manually uninstall and then reinstall *sigh*

Very strange. Can you have a look in your error logs, it's under Mainteinance -> Logs

@ ♦ Ninja ZX-10RR ♦, you could get away with just changing the Modifications.italian.php files without reinstalling, just make sure to make the changes in languages.xml so when you come to uninstall it'll do it properly.

Ah I know that kelvin, I meant that I will post them for you to update the package with the updated strings ;) I'll begin to work on it right now (manually uninstall and reinstall), had a ton of moderation duties to do on a friend's site.
I'll let you know in my next message and there will be the translation included. The mod has no errors on my test site so... Fingers crossed.
