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.

Ted, seems to work. Thank you for the quick fix. Nice app.
One thing, the calc for the 10 point scale, when you look at the results is just off by one decimal. See below:

I planned to install this mod after upgrading to 4.0.4
then 4.0.4 was a mess. decided to skip it.
now it seems it is such a mess that it affects this mod too. really sad.
vB devs need to document these critical changes.

Just to let you know that VBulletin released 4.05. I don't know if I should upgrade to it or just stick with 4.04 and get this mod working.

I bulk enabled it (couldn't find the individual option). But it still doesn't show. It does how ever place some html on the page.

Hello Helpful Answers Mod Users -

A new version of the mod has been posted up to support 4.0.4 and 4.0.5 versions of vBulletin. These versions introduced new changes impacting the display of the voting system which have been resolved. If you are running a version of vb4 older than 4.0.4 please keep using the same version of this mod (2.3.1) that you currently have.

To update please install the new XML file. No other changes are necessary.

And thank you to all HA users, as of this week there have been over 1,000,000 reported votes!
