Announcement: New Extension (Thanks for Posts)

Post by Franchise » Thu Jul 19, 2018 9:54 am

As I mentioned last night, I have a surprise for you all: we have a new extension that was just released called Thanks for Posts. It's phpbb's version of the 'Like' system that FB and Twitter use. Not sure how all the rankings go or how it looks on the desktop but if you click the little box at the top right of a post on mobile, there's now a 'Thanks' option. In addition, the little drop down menu at the top left of the forum where the new posts, yours posts, etc, links are has two new options for who's been thanked and the toplist of forums/topics that have the most thanked posts. I know this has been asked about a lot in the past and it's been in BETA/Release Candidate mode over at phpbb for basically forever but it's finally been ported from the old MOD system from phpbb 3.0 so I hope you all enjoy it.

So an update: my biggest complaint about this extension is it put the Thanks immediately after the Quote feature on mobile. That is a giant pain in the ass for me as I accidentally keep clicking Thanks when I'm trying to quote a post. So annoying. I'll see if I can request some kind of option there to put it somewhere else on mobile.
