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.

Can you try changing the voting option to a style other than rollovers? This will help me debug where the issue is coming from...

Do you mind posting a copy of your postbit template code? It's so much easier for us to review it and look for mistakes or conflicts .

This is a really great mod, and I think it's going to do a lot to increase participation on my board.

I have one question: Is there a way to change the font size and color in the phrases ("Did you find this post helpful, etc")?

I apologize if this question is painfully stupid, but my husband usually does the coding, and I'm trying to do everything by myself this time. It's a long and sometimes grotesque process.

Check the path of the link and tell me what it is versus what it should be.

What link or path? Can you clarify more. You mean in root folder?

I notice one thing. In the upload folder, you have helpfulanswer.php and the same file helefulanswer.php in admincp?

The path of the link... When you click it or hover over it where does it point too? Where should it point too?

There are two helpfulanswer.php files. One in your root folder, one in your admincp. If you upload the upload folder contents into your forum directory in one shot everything will go to the right place.

Anyone interested in building a file like the helpfulanswers.php but that would display 'most helpful' posts from the past 24 hours?

You can simply copy that routine and add one addition WHERE statement to the mySQL query along the lines of

createddate >= DATE_SUB(NOW(),INTERVAL 1 day)
