Looks good, on my list to try out! I hope that when upgrading to v0.8 that any used reactions will not be lost?

And it is installed. I'll have to see how it goes. The forum is run on my NAS and it does seem slower since installing the Extension. However, I've been doing a lot of work on the NAS today so it may be coincidental.

I know clicking on a reaction shows who has posted it etc, but how are the other reaction pages accessed?

You can see reactions in members page and the reactions page link is found in the navbar.

Right, I can see the reactions in members' pages but don't see any link in the navbar at all. Could this be because I'm not using the standard ProSilver style, but a third party one (Flat Style modified to give grey colour), or have I missed turning something on?

Aha it looks to be there in Quick Links?

It'd be very useful if that reactions page could show the articles reacted to?

I'm also trying to work out what the orange icons next to the reaction mean? The first looks to be a count, but the other?

If you click on the reaction image it direct you to the post.

I've had to disable the extension alas as it slowed down the forum too much and the users were complaining about the loss in speed. I'll try it again when the next version comes out to see if that is any better.

What pages are slowed down?

In view topic page, I only add one database query and call a very small amount of text data from one row in the posts table.

At the bottom of your website page, you will find "SQL Explain" link, click on that to generate a report and look for in the pic below the query from the reactions table. This will show if it's the reaction's table slowing view topic, for example.
SQL-Report.png
Adding a reaction requests 3 queries from the database and updates only 3 tables and one other row, which is very small data. and they very simple requests etc.

//edit

The only thing I can think of that is slowing down your server with reactions enabled is you server has some sort of cache running behind the scenes for example varnish e cache etc …

Thanks for that, that SQL table showed:

It seemed the high loading only happened when it was used in conjunction with the 'Who Visited This Topic', I've now disabled that and we're seeing how it goes.

High load is general from an sql query that is looped with in a foreach statement … I know it’s not my extension as I’ve worked on this for years and I never encountered any issues on any server I’ve ever been on…

Regards and have fun.
