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.

I have tried several things to get this to cache, but with no success.

helpful_answers_mosthelp_post
Any ideas guy's?

I see where it is already supposed to be caching, but its not.
I have even added another cache for it, with no success.

Thanks,

Well the funny thing, if I set the Guest access to yes, and log out, and open the forum for non logged in visitors, I can see the question, so the program is there.. must be some sort of permissions thing I'm missing
Would love to use this

The only settings I have different than yours is the self rating and post minimum check. Both of mine are set to no.

The plugin is there, but it doesnt show for some reason. I know because posts that were rated still show up when the plugin is enabled, but you just can't rate new posts.

Ted if you're interested in checking out my forum with an admin account so you can see what's wrong and maybe fix it, I can provide you with one, PM me, just don't break anything

No it does not . For some reason the variables aren't getting assigned right, just gotta find out why.
