Default New Likes System Installed

Installed the newest vbSEO which includes the likes system. It is pretty nice. We can change the heart icon if we want, and put buttons in place of the "like/dislike" wording in each post.

We may even be able to remove the thanks system later. Or, run them side by side indefinitely, i'm not opposed.

So...

You should see "Like" in the bottom right corner of posts now. You can use this to "Like" a post.

Once a thread has started to accumulate likes, it will then start to show a "<3 LIkes" icon at the top of the thread when viewed. You can click this to see how many likes it has, and how many per post.

You can sort by the "Top" likes.

So, basically you can click this on long threads to see which posts have made the most impact, and click to jump right to it.

Easier than skimming the whole thread for large amounts of thanks to find good content.

Attached is what you see when clicking the "<3 Likes" at the top of a thread, as it expands down. (This picture is taken from a different forum so I could show one in use)

I used the "Staff Update!" thread to show an example:

Staff update!

We'll run this a while and see what we think.
