Real „likes”

Post by infinitiv »

I know that you said you don’t need it, Kasimi, but I think that real „likes” (like those used in Facebook’s Messenger or Slack) would be a great improvement in future development of mChat. IDK if you planned to take any further steps on making this extension even better and more functional but if you do adding real „likes” is a way to go since it’d be a major improvement, worthy of year 2017.

It certainly would be a great improvement, but, again, I don't see a reason why I should spend my free time on creating it if there's nothing in it for me, considering the many other features and improvements I have on my wish list.

If there's a developer willing to take on this project, I'm always happy to assist. :+1:

A "thumbs up" button for each message and a badge saying "Liked x times" I would imagine.

i found this, maybe its possible to connect it somehow?

* https://github.com/lygav/phpbbPostLike
* https://likebtn.com/en/jquery-like-button-rating
* i read that someone change a bit this mode https://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtop ... &t=2259046 to change from thanks to Likes (ex: http://www.thehockeyforum.co.uk/forum/v ... =2&t=19140)

the best if there is option to click a 'thumb up' once per user per post that other user have done, and to not take it away. and count how many users did this. ofc only for registered users.
