Hi everyone,


If you haven't already noticed, a few new forum features have been added by the request of some of our members. Click on the [Show] next to "Spoiler" below to learn more!


Spoiler
First, as you can see, there is a spoilers feature. This is available in the text editor

 


Second, you'll see a button to like posts.


Third, we added mentions. Press @ followed by a username to mention a person. To be honest I don't know if it fully works because no one has mentioned my name yet, but I'm assuming that a notification will show up with a link to the comment that mentioned my name. Hopefully that's the case.  :-\


These were good ideas and I'm thankful for the help finding some of these extensions. Hopefully they will work out well for us!


Best,
TingThing

@TingThing Seems to be working okay! I mean, it came up with your name as I typed @TingThing
Edit:
The like button isn't appearing in the theme I'm using which I just found out the name of the theme is "Yansima." Think you could fix this?

There was an error when testing installation of the extension on your particular theme. But I tried installing anyway and it looks like it went through. Hopefully it works properly.

@TingThing is there any way to make the script display the OP's like amount directly on the board?

Displaying the number of likes from the forum board before you enter in the view the posts? It's possible, although when I tested I noticed that it was showing up directly over any locked or sticky icons, making it look bad. Since I'm not familiar with the language used for the extension, I don't have an easy way of fixing that, so I had to disable it.

@TingThing
Finally the likes, pings and even spoilers are here. I forgot about the spoilers and didn't even realize they were missing.

Nice Job! :D

Something's wrong with the spoilers in my forum theme. If I reveal a spoiler, almost everything in the message (user's name, avatar, details, and even most of the text except for the spoiler) is gone. This should be easy to fix I hope.

I see what you mean. It appears that the spoilers tag has compatibility issues with your theme. Unfortunately there's nothing I can do there.
