Solved Points and Reputation: How to get the Thanks button to show

Post by jkh August 20th 2020, 2:08 pm

On this forum you have a thanks button

Points and Reputation: How to get the Thanks button to show Thanks10

Even though I have the Thanks button activated in the admin panel...

Points and Reputation: How to get the Thanks button to show Thanks11

...it never shows up in the topics. Points and Reputation: How to get the Thanks button to show 2118789120
Shouldn't it show up alongside these buttons like it does on this forum? 

Points and Reputation: How to get the Thanks button to show Toolba10

I know I haven't got the 'activate reputation system' ticked at the moment (I've only just done it to get rid of the green thumbs up thingy) but the 'Thanks button' has never shown up even with the 'activate reputation system' ticked anyway.

What am I doing wrong?

The thanks button only appears for the topic author. So, if you are reading a topic from another member, that will be the reason.

I saw in the first screenshot, that you don't have activated the reputation system.
You must activate the reputation full to show the thanks button, because when you push in the button, it adds 3 points or what you want. (In the reputation management tab)

That's very useful thank you.

From that link: Why don't I get this? Is it because I've got a green thumb instead?

Sorry to be a pain, but where would I have modified it? Would it be a javascript, template or a CSS code?

How would I get rid of the green thumb and replace it with this? Sometimes when a thread is loading I can briefly see that red bar but then it disappears.

Also, if I can't see a Thanks button on an authors thread, how can I thank him? For instance, on this thread: https://jillhavern.forumotion.net/t16901-the-political-spectrum-have-your-say

That is the default system.  Just remove whatever you added to get the green thumb.  Did you exactly add it or someone else?

It's this one you have installed >> Improve the reputation system so it counts votes if you remove this then your thumbs up will go away and the line would show like the one you just posted

my advice is keep it as it is.

OK, I suppose it would be a bit confusing to have two different Like/Dislike systems.

I think an update for the new Like/Dislike system, that counts towards reputation, would solve a lot of these issues...then I can get rid of the green thumb.

I seem to have a bee in me bonnet about this green thumb Laughing 

I actually prefer this new Like/Dislike system because it 'exposes' the member who's liked or disliked - sometimes on my forum I get a troll and he has a tag-team who keep anonymously liking his post so it looks like lots of people are ganging up against the moderator. This is why I'd like to get rid of the green thumb, but I think to do that I have to deactivate the Points/Reputation and then the Thanks button won't work either.

If you get me drift...? Confused

The green thumbs up is not the like system. It is the reputation system.

You can't.... You can only Thank a member for posting in YOUR topic

So this is how it works:

You post a topic
A member then reply's to your topic on the members reply you will see the THANKS button so you can thank him / her for a reply to your post / Topic.

Now when you have thanks that one member you can not thank anyone else on that same topic as you have already thanked a member already.

You can not thank a member for making a post this is the way it was made. you can only Thumbs up the members topic that is why we had a thumbs up / like system in the first place.
