SMF Development > Applied or Declined Requests

Thumbs Up (Like / Dislike) for Posts?

(1/14) > >>

Jim Stone:
I think a  "thumbs up" or "like or Dislike" feature for individual posts is long overdue for SMF. I'm literally getting requests every week for it, nearly everybody loves it, wants it, and I can't find a mod that installs correctly, the writer is active, or that works seamlessly without hitches. I had the feature when I ran Proboards but it's not on SMF and it's sorely missed. Please add this feature in this excellent package.

Fingers crossed!

In fact there's one:

It's not free, it's $15.00 equipped. It should be a built in feature, as "likes" for posts are becoming a standard everywhere. Also, it says compatible with versions up to 2.01, I'm running 2.02, which is another reason. I don't want to keep upgrading with every new release of SMF. On a great (and I mean Great) platform like SMF, it should be standard as most people expect it on professional forums.

For a mod 2.0.1 or 2.0.2 doesn't make any difference (in 99.99% of the cases, a 0.01 for safety :P).

What it's really difficult for me is to understand what is the difference between a "like" and a reply.
If I like a post I quote it and I state I like it, if I like or I'm interested in a topic I answer there. What does the "like" add to a conversation (that is the main point of a forum)? In my opinion...nothing...

And it's a genuine question, not a criticism or anything similar.

It works perfectly in 2.0.2 :P

That's why there are mods! If something doesn't fit as a feature it can be a mod, and everyone is happy :)
