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.

Hi Ted, this mod is very similar to what I'm looking for. I was wondering if there is a way to make it do what the "Judge it" feature does on Topix's forum. To see what I mean just check out this thread on Topix, and the link above everyone's posts that says "Judge it"

http://www.topix.com/forum/city/king...9DVIR5S4V7A4IP

The "Judge it" uses rating by making different judges with fun images people can select for a certain post, and when someone selects a "judge" for the post it will say above the post what judges people have selected for that post, with the images of the judges there.

I think this would be fun mod that a lot of forum owners would love, including the ability of the admin to make their own kinds of judges for people to be able to select.

You could use this to do 2 of the icons but it won't support more than that and really that's a different mod (from a database and options perspective). Pretty cool however.

After installing latest version on 4.06, I get this weird tag after thumbs up image:

(Positive rating image goes here) " /> | (Negative rating image here)

Not sure what I should remove... It shows up in every type of setting (thumbs, arrows, etc)

edit: To clarify, there's this: " /> after the first "Thumbs up" image.

Strange. Have you modified any of the templates or your postbit template?

I'm using a custom skin, but it shows up on a default VB skin view too.

To be clear, the image is showing up properly AND the /> is showing?

Yep! Doesn't matter if I use a custom image, the default thumbs up image or the arrows or hovers, it shows that " /> (including the quotes).

The alt text for the image also says "alt src=" and nothing else. It's pretty weird.

Other than that, the plugin works, I've modified the text option to use my custom thumbs up image, but it's very strange behavior. I'd like to use the hover option with images, but I'll use my "hack" in the meantime.

Just so you know I'm not messing with you:



As I said I got it to work by modifying the Text option and inserting some HTML in there, but it's strange.

Is there an option to "view all posts you rated as helpful" for each user? It would work as a way of starring, or favouriting some posts they wanted to be able to find easily later on...

I have been looking for a mod that does this, so I've tagged yours for now because it looks great. Hopefully that would be an option with any future updates you do

Thanks!
