Might want to add a "Like" button.

Post by Larry I » Mon Mar 06, 2017 4:05 pm

I'm seeing some very nice photos that deserve a "Like". I have no idea how easy (or hard) it would be to add that feature but think it's worth considering.

I 'like' the idea, but I'm not sure how much coding that might involve. I am trying to keep the forum very basic so future upgrades are easier. I will look into it though!

Having a 'Like' button is just an option that can be turned on and off in many forum software packages.
It does not require any coding.
It is certainly available in vBulletin, but I am not sure about phpBB
Have a look around in the Admin Control Panel.

It is a very nice feature to have!

It seems I was mistaken about the Thanks Button just being a 'switch'
It will require a modification

The hangup on this is that the version this board runs on was JUST released when I started it and it was a decent change from previous versions. Not a lot of the mods have been updated yet so selection is limited. As time goes on there will be more functionality available. I have five different pages bookmarked for possible upgrades once they are fully tested with this version!
