Solved Need HELP with the "like" button

Post by Kimmy on Fri 10 Mar - 22:39

I had a problem months ago and it was solved here. I wanted to get this like button back:



I followed the instructions from this thread:

http://help.forumotion.com/t150631-how-can-i-get-this-like-button-back?highlight=like+button+missing

This is the code I put in and it worked. Now it is gone and I tried putting the code in gain and it still doesn't appear.

Javascript:

var avacweb_like_system = {
dom_ready : false,
vote_singular : 'Like',
vote_plural : 'Likes',
callback : function(vote, new_button) {
$('.postfoot', vote.parentNode.parentNode.parentNode.parentNode).before( new_button );
}
};
$(function() { avacweb_like_system.dom_ready = true; });
$.getScript('http://www.avacweb.net/likesystem');

CSS:

.LGlike {
background: #105289;
padding: 3px;
border-radius: 4px;
color: #fff;
font-size: 10px;
font-weight: bold;
text-shadow: -1px 0.5px #888;
box-shadow: 1px 1px 1px #888;
cursor: pointer;
margin-right: 4px;
}
.LGvote { margin: 0 5px; }
.LGnovote {
filter:Alpha(opacity=50);
opacity: 0.5;
cursor: default;
box-shadow: none;
text-shadow: none;
}


Also, I have + and - symbols in the right upper corner of each post that I want to remove.

I would appreciate any help.
Thanks!!

If you have not noticed that the tutorial for this has been removed from public view. The issue is with the coding itself. It is referencing servers that we have no control over. So if something happens, we can not fix them.

Yes, I can verify this as well, because when I looked into the coding a couple months ago for AvacWeb Chat for example, information is being sent over a HTTP server (insecure) to the AvacWeb site, and then back, which can cause eavesdropping or even cross-site scripting vulnerabilities. This appears to be the same way.

No all the data to that code is no longer open to us as the sites servers have gone.

That was always a problem with hosting something out side of FM it's self.

But there is a like system we used that you may want to put in it's place and you can even make your own change to it and it will never have the same problem as its a plug in from the system in our servers so it's better if you ask me.

The like system for FM forums is pretty stable and very easy to use. I highly recommend it.

I do not like the thumb down button on that one. We had it for a while and my members did not like it either.

From time to time, I visit another FM board. They still have their like button (like the one I pictured above). Any clue how or why?

you can easily disable the negative thumb the tutorial explains how
you can also change the thumb with whatever image/icon you like

Is the thank button different from the thumps up, or is that just a change made within the thumbs up/down system?

So I can change it to just the thumbs up?? If so, that would be great!

The tutorial was about the reputation system, not the thanks system.

As far as i know this like button system is not working and we can't ask the owner of the code to fix it as the forum is down.
The only way to get this fixed is to ask the code maker them self @LGforum

We no longer give support for outside codes

Can someone tell me how to put the thumbs up/thumbs down in, but without the thumbs down. I found the tutorial, but I am not sure how to remove the thumbs done.
Thanks!!

Hey @Kimmy,

You'll want to follow this tutorial like usual, but once the script is installed, click the edit button to edit it again. ( or just edit the script if it's already installed ) In the script you'll want to find :
Code:
negative_vote : true, // true for negative votes || false for positive only

Replace
Code:
negative_vote : true,
with
Code:
negative_vote : false,
, and the script will hide the negative vote button.

I recommend reading the section "Modifying the script" in that tutorial to learn how to change its settings.
