Please someone like this comment. I can't stand seeing 0 likes near my username. It's bad for my self esteem.  ;D

because that's putting the float on the wrong element. It's putting it on the like button, it needs to be on the parent. the parent already has a class "floatleft" that would be changed to "floatright"

Alternatively, the float could be removed and a text-align:right added to the like_post_box class

Is this a better mod?
http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=1890
It does seem to be better, at least in the sense that it's more full-featured. Although these are really two different things. The current one is for like/thanks, this one is for post ratings. I know it's kinda subtle but it does seem different to me

The background color for "Like" is distracting, maybe try something with less contrast?
+1000
"LESS IS MORE" It is the cumulative effect that kills deals!!! How many times do I have to say this?  >:(

Be careful with that one, it hasn't been updated in 6 years.

I don't see the like or anything being that I almost exclusively access the forums with tapatalk.

One of the reasons I do is, I like that I can go to participated and it brings up all the recent threads I posted in. It sorts by which thread I most recently posted in, as oppose to regular, which sorts by which has the most recent post by any member.

Also, timeline on tapatalk is like recent posts on desktop, but it only shows threads. Desktop shows all posts.

If its possible to get these on regular desktop site, that would be awesome.

Oh, definitely. It once updated by mistake, biggest catastrophe. Thankfully  was able to reinstall the older version.

Dan you should get Indian programmers your time is not worth the aggravation


I usually pay under $10 an hour for a programmer with previous 100+ reviews

Obviously doesn't have to be indian, but I think it's a valid point that you should just get a foreign programmer to help out. At some point it's no longer worth your time and effort to use inferior plugins.

IMO a better design would be having the Like button on the top right near the quote, and highlighted message about the actual likes. I made this in Paint so someone could definitely do better but that's the basic idea.

I like the idea of Total Likes for the user I feel it will force people to contribute better post and not more post.

But i don't like the pressure ;D
