I have had a good search here but fail to find any info if a like button has been developed for the forum. Ideally with a counter to the responses as we see on Facebook. Happy New Year folks

OK - let's put this one to bed, shall we? This is limited to topics only, since you cannot link directly to a reply without adding an additional mod. To add an active FB "like" button to your topic, here's what you need to do. If you do NOT want it connected to FB, I'd suggest the "Thanks" mod instead.

"topic.asp"

Look for the following lines (appx 630-634):

			if (AdminAllowed = 1 or Reply_MemberID = MemberID) then
				if (Cat_Status <> 0 and Forum_Status <> 0 and Topic_Status <> 0) or (AdminAllowed = 1) then
					Response.Write	"                       <a href=""JavaScript:openWindow('pop_delete.asp?" & ArchiveLink & "mode=Reply&REPLY_ID=" & Reply_ReplyID & "&TOPIC_ID=" & Topic_ID & "&FORUM_ID=" & Forum_ID & "')"">" & getCurrentIcon(strIconDeleteReply,"Delete Reply","align=""absmiddle"" hspace=""6""") & "</a>" & vbNewLine
				end if
		                ' DEM --> Start of Code added for Full Moderation

Above those, insert these:

			'	##	Like Below
			If Request.ServerVariables("HTTPS") <> "off" Then
				Response.Write	"<iframe align=""absmiddle"" src=""https://www.facebook.com/plugins/like.php?href=" & strForumURL & "topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=" & TOPIC_ID & ";layout=button&action=like&show_faces=false&share=false"" scrolling=""no"" frameborder=""0"" style=""border:none; overflow:hidden; height:17px;"" allowTransparency=""true""></iframe>"
			Else
				Response.Write	"<iframe align=""absmiddle"" src=""http://www.facebook.com/plugins/like.php?href=" & strForumURL & "topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=" & TOPIC_ID & ";layout=button&action=like&show_faces=false&share=false"" scrolling=""no"" frameborder=""0"" style=""border:none; overflow:hidden; height:17px;"" allowTransparency=""true""></iframe>"
			End If
			'	##	Like Above

Nice

I have been toying with implementing a topic rating for the .net version, but still musing over a few ideas at the moment
Torborg Posted - 17 June 2014 : 02:03:55
And I'm still hoping

I'm still hoping!

Did anyone ever decide to do a Like Mod?

I vote that it be internal and have nothing at all to do with Facebook.

As popular as the Like Button is on Facebook, that should motivate someone!

Come on guys! :)




golfmann Posted - 03 February 2012 : 10:47:34
crazy, isn't it....?
All that money over a like button! lol

no, I remember too well.

But is it best to like the topic or the post? In Facebook you like the posts. I guess it's to "like" the posts that i have got used to and I'm missing now on snitz forum . On the other hand it't would be nice if this could give a ranking for the good discussions, the topics. Then it must be the topics that get's the "like". I don't know what is the best. Just thinking :-)
MaGraham Posted - 18 January 2012 : 21:33:49
I couldn't get the Topic Rating to work for me.


I'll definitely be checking back to see if someone has come up with something similar to the LIKE BUTTON. Sounds terrific!
Classicmotorcycling Posted - 09 January 2012 : 15:58:30

Isn't there something like the Topic Rating mod around which maybe able to be modified to suit.

Torborg Posted - 08 January 2012 : 16:29:07
Would be nice to have the possibility to see the most popular (liked) topics.
balexandre Posted - 08 January 2012 : 13:36:14
To make sure, will it be to "internally" like the topic/post?

or a Facebook Like Button

If internally (to use on the Forum alone), if we do have Like counter, we would probably need to "order" topics/forums by "likeness" as well, witch start to involve a like more than a simple code idea ...

Actually, re-reading the thread, that may as well be what the original request was. I didn't interpret it that way, though.

That is not correct. The like requires a facebook login and facebook takes care of that - click once, "likes it", click twice, "unlikes it". Nothing is required in terms of the forum database.

The like button requires a bit of javascrit and some meta tags to work properly, nothing else.

I believe the share mod I put together can have the Facebook like button added to it. http://www.snitzbitz.com/mods/details.asp?Version=All&mid=302
ruirib Posted - 07 January 2012 : 08:20:20
I am rather busy at the moment, but I did a simple thing to use the like button, which doesn't do much but to put the like button and a send button. It's rather incomplete in the sense that there is no administrative interface to control the forums where the like button is used, but I guess I can also change it to make sure it's not used in private forums.

I have it working in a couple forums, but to release this as a mod it still will take a while.
HuwR Posted - 07 January 2012 : 08:06:01
I'm sure if you asked Carefree nicely he may be able to come up with something if he has time, he is the onley person actively coding mods at the moment I think, I'm afraid I'm just too busy working on a big .Net project at work and am not getting much free time these days.
Torborg Posted - 07 January 2012 : 04:35:34
"like" :-)
golfmann Posted - 01 January 2012 : 12:24:21
I'm all for it but was treated with not derision but apathy when I asked last year... lol
