In progress Can the post "Thanks" settings be changed, if so how?

Post by CruizingComet on September 11th 2011, 3:31 pm

1) Can anyone explain if its possible to alter the settings for the "Thanks" button, currently it only thanks the person who created the first post within each thread, but our members frequently offer help & advice to members throughout the threads, so is there a way to alter this so members can "Thank" more than once in each thread?

2) Currently when a member is "Thanked" how do they know? do they get extra points or a notification? never thought about this until a member asked a short while ago?
So what happens when a member is thanked?

Hopefully the above is clear, many thanks Smile

Hi, unfortunately there is no way to change any settings of the thanks button at the moment. When a member's post has been thanked, their post background colour will change. Smile

We went into the admin panel and the colour wasn't enabled, so it wasn't showing. But it now it's been changed it now shows a different colour when a member is thanked.

Is this the only purpose / reward of thanking anyone then?

Will forumotion introduce a system where multiple posts can be thanked or can this be suggested if it's not been already? our members are calling for such a system.

Well, as the system is called, posts that are good can be thanked. I don't know if Forumotion is going to introduce something like that but your best bet would be to use the reputation system. Smile
