- Affected Version
- WoltLab Suite 5.3
I know there was a lot of demand for the new Reaction system, but the users of the forum I help run are used the like button. We were on an old Xenforo instance before and like was one click very easy for them. Now, it requires two clicks on desktop and three on mobile. I've been trying to study how it works and initially though I could just make the menu always visible, but I realize now that the reactions menu is dynamic and not on every post.
I know it has been said that we cannot go back to the old like system (though I think the code is there). I don't know how it even worked though since we never used to old version.
Options I have been considering:
- Including a static always visible reaction menu per post that has both post id and can send the required events (will put in template)
- Figuring out if I can somehow call the old Like code
- Reusing the reaction button already on each post and having it just send the thumb up reaction (would lose other reactions)
I am new to Woltlabs, as you can tell and would be willing to try coding out a plugin, but I am not at the level yet. Any pointers that could help with this?
Also please let me know if there is a better section to post in and thank you so much for any and all help. Really appreciated!
