I tried to add buttons by using code I found on the net but it was not an easy task. Minibb forum is a bit of an head scratcher when you are not familiar with it. It will not run php code unless you create all sorts of variables. Anyway I managed to find a site that offers an instant service . Simply one lot of javascript did the trick. Well I did have to create one variable so as to make it work with each post. Not so hard, thankfully. Anyway I think they look great. There are loads of designs so I can change them if I wish.

They are free for 7 days then a small monthly - yearly or one time payment is required. It won't break the bank. Quite worth it my opinion.

For those who might be interested in adding these buttons to your own minibb forum ...

Step 1
I added this to the parseMessage function found in bb_plugins.php file ...

/* Likes addon */
/* --Likes addon */

Step 2
Then I added 2 variables into the data-identifier of the supplied javascript ...


And placed the whole code in the appropriate part of main_posts_cell.html file - under the 'postedText' div.

The 2 variables add the topic tile and the message number to keep the identifier unique. This is essential for accurate likes and dislikes recording.

The above is all it took.
