Like function

Post  rockhunter62 on Sun Jun 25, 2017 12:32 pm

Hi mods and forum members,

Not all of us like to spend time typing replies to posts so what is the chance of having a "LIKE" option added to the posts. Very Happy

Cheers

"LIKE" Option?  Not quite sure what you mean by adding/having a "LIKE" Option in ones post Doug?   More info is needed on this one.  How different  would a "LIKE" Option be, to that of the "Quote" Option, (from one's post)  we already have in place? scratch  More info please Doug.

Hi Kon,

Having the "like" option I think would get more responses by the less computer literate people like me. A lot of people use mobile phone and tablets and may not be comfortable to answer posts with a full reply.

Thank you for your consideration.

Cheers

Hi Kon,
+1 for Rockhunter.

So instead of having to post this, I would have "liked" Rockhunter's post or comment if I agreed with it. It would have shown up under Rock's post and added to the number of people who also "liked" it. I could then move on to another topic quickly if I had nothing to say on the matter.

I don't have facebook but I am a member on another totally different related forum which has this feature. There is no "dislike" function as this can have a negative effect.
It (the "like" function) doesn't detract from people replying to the post as people are still free to do so and either support or state their alternative view on the post, more so it encourages "lurkers" to interact in some form, albeit a very quick one, and this in turn encourages "lurkers" to actually post (even if on a different topic/post) at some future point.

Understandable if such a function cannot be implemented as I understand that not all forum set-ups have it incorporated.
Cheers
Sodd

Right you are sodd. It cannot be implemented for the reasons you have stated. I'v been racking my brain with the rest of management, trying to find out if, a "Like" button option, was/is incorporated to the Admin Panel Settings, but alas to no avail. It is simply not part of this forums program & needs to be created/programmed in, something of which, I have little knowledge or experience in doing. We haven't given up though. We're still working on finding a way of incorporating a "Like" button Option in.
The forum does have a Points & Reputation system though, which works on a +/- point system principal, (regarding the reading of ones post, displayed in your Avatar Profile ) but not sure if members here would want Admin incorporating this system in (as an option), as opposed to the "Like" button option system?  

Cheers guy's, Kon.

Hi Kon,
No worries mate, however, if at some point in the future the issue is ever raised/asked again, it has already been covered in this post. The leg work has been done and it will be a very quick answer to whoever raises it and they can be referred back to this post. Wink
Cheers
