Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Template Edits Additional Files  

Helpful Answers has been used to record over 6 MILLION times on more than 2,000 forums. If you're not using HA your users are looking for it!

Every day your users contribute hundreds if not thousands of posts making it hard for new members and guests to separate out the best answers from those that are less helpful. The Helpful Answers System offers your members a quick way
to rate individual posts as either helpful or not allowing future visitors to understand the value of each post.

Designed to be flexible, HA has over 30 configurable settings:
  • Use image or text ratings AJAX or traditional links.
  • Offer yes/no or scaled 1-10 point ranking.
  • Turn off negative ratings for a positive only system.
  • Decide which forums are open for helpful answer ratings.
  • Audit the system and identify top users and potential abusers.
  • Ban specific members from using the system.
  • Customize the message shown after a post is rated.
  • Show a page with the top helpful posts.
  • Show rating stats on a user's profile.
  • Hide posts that rate "too low"
  • Template driven so you can customize it all for your forum.
For advanced users template conditionals and variables let you further extend the functionality to color highlight good or bad posts, include ratings in userís profiles and much more.

Modification Installation [Must Read]:


Step 1: Upload the addon files found in the upload/ folder to your forum directory
Step 2: Install the plugin through your vB Administration area
Step 3: Configure settings & enable the mod in individual forums


You must configure settings & enable forums before voting will show up.

Anonymous Stats Tracking (optional):

By default this addon will pass basic rating data (positive or negative) to a 3rd party site for statistical purposes. Only the most basic data is captured (the vote and your site name) and no user information or specific forum details are logged, not even an IP address. You can disable this through the admin.


Mod Philosophy -- Drive Your Own Success:

All of my mods are inspired by my work in digital marketing and are designed to drive registrations, interaction or other engagement activities the core platform does not address.

Each is designed to fit a general need by providing a starting point but it's on you to decide how to make things work to their best possible outcome. Feel free to suggest what you'd like to see next but don't wait to have what everyone else has; figure out what your forum needs and customize away.

Our mods are officially supported in English only but use the phrase system to translate or edit as you see fit.

First, thank for this Add-on...

I've made ​​some changes to customize it and want to share them:

4 new images modified by me, in PNG format and valid for any background color, 20x20px and removed the " | ".

Added margin-right: 10px; in the voting layer to not be so attached to the table limit.

Added align="absmiddle" to the properties of the images in the voting layer to adjust the alignment of the text with the image.

Attached new images and product xml file with the changes made by me, the rest is unchanged.
Attached Images
File Type: png ha_thumbsup_gray.png (1.0 KB, 149 views)
File Type: png ha_thumbsdn_gray.png (1.0 KB, 151 views)
File Type: png ha_thumbsup.png (810 Bytes, 149 views)
File Type: png ha_thumbsdn.png (878 Bytes, 150 views)

I need* to clear our complete history of helpfulanswers and start over from scratch. Do I only have to dump/empty the tables helpfulanwser and helpfulpost?

* the reason for this is that we started with anonymous voting. But now we want to show names of voters, but we don't want to infringe the privacy of our members by revealing the votes they gave when the system was anonymous.

Gotcha...

Just clear those two tables and the fields added to the user profile... if you have a large user set this may take a while.

UPDATE user SET hagoodrank = 0;
UPDATE user SET hatotalrank= 0;

You sure can. The sum total of each post is stored in the mod's tables making this easy to query using the MIN() and MAX() query functions.
