Converting from other systems

SimpleLikes makes it easy to convert from other like plugins via an importer tool. At the minute, this importer can import likes from:
  • G33K's Thankyou/Like system
Imports can be performed via the Admin Control Panel.

MyAlerts Integration

SimpleLikes has full MyAlerts v2.0.0 integration, alerting your users whenever one of their posts is liked.

Showing the number of likes received in the post bit

It is possible to show the number of likes a user has received in their post bit. This is disabled by default and must be enabled by a template edit and by turning the setting on in the admin control panel as it causes an extra database query that isn't needed on all boards.

To add the count, edit the template "postbit" or "postbit_classic" and add the following code:

Number of likes received: <a href="{$mybb->settings['burl']}/misc.php?action=post_likes_received_by_user&user_id={$post['id']}">{$post['likes_received']}</a>

Changed Templates

SimpleLikes modifies the following templates:
  • headerinclude
  • postbit
  • postbit_classic
  • member_profile
Additionally, it adds an extra CSS stylesheet titled "simplelikes.css" as well as several custom templates.

Probably not. As the name implies, this plugin is meant to provide the very simple experience of "liking" a post. 

@martec and Eldenroot thanks Smile
what's the difference between this and the thank you/like plugin? I suppose the only difference is that it only allows for likes, correct?
They are almost same, but thanksyoulike plugin has more settings and features - both plugins are great, it is only up to you what features do you need and what you prefer. Better to try them both Smile

Yeah, as Eldenroot said there aren't many differences. SimpleLikes aims to provide a basic implementation rather than being full of bells and whistles and was originally the only like plugin with MyAlerts integration.
Thank you Euan. It was a 10 month wait, but excellent to finally see it. Thanks for the work.
can this be merged with the reputation system its very nice and easy
