New forum

Hi @Sven,

Aren't you planning to give the forum a bit more of a social touch? A thank you or like button on each others post would be a fancy little thing to have.
I know that we are mostly geeks and don't care about such vanity things but c'mon. The forum is like this for ages. So I wouldn't even dare to mention a new design or something like that...

Or is it only me who can't stand consistency? :D

    Well oldschool is fine for me. However Im open for ideas if it's just styles/skins and addons to the existing forum platform.
  • Yeah, I see from the amount of comments that you aren't the only one :) Anyway, I've looked up the plugin directory and this is what I found as useful looking plugins:

    Thanks plugins:
    https://open.vanillaforums.com/addon/kudos-plugin
    https://open.vanillaforums.com/addon/thankfulpeople2-plugin

    Rating plugins:
    https://open.vanillaforums.com/addon/rating-plugin
    https://open.vanillaforums.com/addon/voting-plugin

    The skins are a personal thing so I didn't even dive into them. However, if there is a Xmas theme... ;)

    added that rating + thankful plugin ... lets see if it is used, else i might remove it again
  • Thanks for adding it. I use Invision software for my forums, it isn't free but only small yearly cost. I am not sure if they do a plugin to import from this software to theirs, but I suspect they might.

    BTW, date posting seems messed up.

    Ya, in some threads posts are in random order not by date/time

    Does clicking the up/down vote buttons work for anyone?
  • SvenSven www.GSA-Online.de
    working for me
  • shaunshaun http://shaunmarrs.com/ - The Ultimate Resource For Free GSA Tool Tutorials!
    Curious if its working for anyone else?

    Not sure if its only working for admins or something as I have tried to upvote the SERE v2 thread to test but nothing happened.

    Voting doesn't work for me either.
  • looks like voting giving error on mobile site @Sven
  • Not working for me either. The 'thanks' button was working when it was enabled.

    @Sven - There are a lot of add-ons. I'm looking through them for cool stuff. :) I can already say more Emojis! That's always a good thing. Haven't yet found any add-ons for that, so far. Thanks button was def a good addition.
  • Let's see if they work at all :| I haven't had the chance to try the thanks button but the voting doesn't work for me either. I hope that this thing won't mess up your weekends plan Sven! :/
  • SvenSven www.GSA-Online.de
    naw, I will look on it once i got time...not that important i guess.
  • SvenSven www.GSA-Online.de
    @TheGypsy can you try again to rate threads.
  • Yeah @Sven, It can wait. It's for fun anyway.

    I can rate this thread up to +1and down from +1 to 0 in the main discussions. I can't go down to -1.

    I can rate every individual comments in this thread up to +1 or down to -1 and back to 0 if I need to. However, I can't rate it to +1 and then to -1 or vica versa. It only allows me to go back to 0.

    Snow for Christmas! :) @Sven, that's always fun.
