I always hated the buttons being in the same table as the post/signature. This is a great way to give your forum a unique and stylish look. This can be with the stock buttons or even better to make tabs. I am not an expert coder so any advice is welcomed in a constructive manner. Thanks!

Or just delete the post_thanks_button template

I'd love to use this in conjunction with your "Signature in Table" modification, but as you can see from the attachment, this throws all but the first post too wide.

Using the "Sig in Table" without this, puts the buttons at the top-right of the post that they are connected to.

Nice idea, tho'! :)

Let me check it out I am having no issues on mine. Maybe I can find a solution.

Not a big deal. It's probably something else on my forum that's throwing it off. I wasn't complaining, just commenting.

My members like legacy anyway. :)

Yeah most of mine do too, but I do notice my iPhone users LOVE this.
