New Forum Feature

Post  RoOsTeR on 1/18/2017, 9:55 pm

I've activated a feature on the forum that was used in a different form long ago. Some may remember the "thumbs up feature". Anyway, now displayed under the username at the bottom of a post on the left hand side is a "thanks" button.



If you have found the post helpful, nice or like it, feel free to give thanks! Wink


On a side note, I can change the word "thanks" to "Like" if that would be preferred.



And lastly, @trolleydriver, I just used your post above sandersons as a visual to what the "thanks" feature looks like without being "thanked" yet thinking Wink

I vote for leaving it as "thanks."  We have other short cuts.

+1 = I agree
I love you  = Love it
 = Congrats or great job
rofl  = funny
These are just a few on the first page.

The word "like" has been beaten to death on Facebook.  Too generic.  Facebook now has emojis such as sad, mad, surprise, laugh, love it and thumbs up to meet the needs of its users.

Nice, Rooster.

Cool feature!



And once again, (due to Windows 10, I'm guessing) I can't post anything like it. When I hit your thanks button, RoOsTeR, it just de-highlighted (is that even a word?) and did nothing.... Insert sad-faced emoticon here.

Oh, well. This will be interesting to watch!! :-)

Interesting. Working just fine when I tested on Windows 10, 7, Vista, Linux and Chromium/Chrome browser. The "de-highlighted" indicates that you've given thanks (Smile ) It will take or can take a little bit of time for it to actually _load_. Maybe go back to a post you've thanked and double check?

I think the answer to both questions is "no".

Correct. Just a simple "like" feature with the push of a button.

Oh, it's something with MY computer! And it started after I loaded Win10 on it... Can't START a PM (tried/wanted to PM you this morning - & I CAN answer them), can't insert emoticons, etc...

Thanks for the further info on it de-highlighting...

UPDATE:
The old "Thanks" system broke! For those interested, the server host for the other system was taken down.
I've made a few changes, and long story short...there is now a little green thumb in the upper right hand corner (instead of bottom left) of posts.
The old "thank" counts did carry over to what is in place now.
Use if you like. Or not Smile


Note: you can't "like/thumbs up" your own post, so it only appears on others posts.
