"Like button"

Post by ross03 » Thu May 18, 2017 7:26 am

We can find mods that allow you to load up a thread to Facebook. That is not what we want. It's not a link to FB or any other social network that we are looking for.

We are looking for nothing but a simple "like" button that just tells the poster that he or she likes that post, without having to answer in posts. So the "like" button should be completely forum intern.

Any ideas?

I too would like just a simple 'Like' feature added. It doesn't have to be bloated with uncecessary over-complicated features like ratings and top lists and notifications, just a simple +1 for each post.

There was an excellent version for 3.0 (Link below) that worked perfectly well if only someone could take this up and convert it to 3.2, it would be ideal.

It is no longer being developed. I'm not keen on installing unsupported extensions to my forums.

I too would like this feature. It's probably the number one requested feature I get asked for across my forums.

There are a lot that are compatible with 3.2, this is probably listed above but here:

viewtopic.php?f=456&t=2259046&hilit=like+button

That's literally just a simple like button.

I installed this extension: viewtopic.php?f=456&t=2259046 by rxu, fiddled around a bit by changing the language files from 'Thanks' to 'Like' and also the position and appearance of the 'Like' box by adding a background.

I didn't activate the 'Ratings' system it includes or the 'Thanks List' either. I managed to get it looking exactly as I wanted because all that was required was just a simple 'Like' system.

You can see how it looks and in operation on > this thread < on my Forum (phpBB 3.2.0.)

Works 'like' a treat! :D

In the old phpbb2, I wrote my own, pretty simple like/dislike and it worked like a charm.
Hopefully we'll find a simple Mod without all the belts and whistles.
I migrated to phpbb3 and really miss it. People keep asking for it. Maybe I'll find my old codes and try to tweak it ... :(
The phpbb programmers already do an excellent job so I am not going to say it should be part of the default installation.
