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.

Thank you for your quick reply!
Alternately, a link to the highest rated answer shown in the first post would be good.
I'm looking to see if there's a substitute for Stack Exchange-type question/answer threads that can be done within VB, and it seems like your Mod might be a workable solution.

There is a feature to enable a link to the top post though if you want a true q/a system I'd suggest the hack which will require a couple joins and a few conditionals. Shouldn't be crazy.

Very cool! Would you be able to point me to information on that hack?

Sorry, "it" being a concept. Don't know that it's been actually done.

Everything works fine. Thanks!

Is is possible to translate the phrases that appear on the users and the posts? How would that be possible?

If the mod is coded to use phrases, you can do it in the Phrase Manager.

Hey Ted,

I've just started using the vBulletin Default Mobile Style on my Forums. Is there an easy way to integrate the helpful_answers into the postbit and postbit_legacy? I just placed {vb:raw helpful_answers} in there, but it doesn't seem to work.

It works perfectly for the desktop theme: http://www.onlinearsenal.com

Is there any way to use the helpful answers ratings to sort/rank forum search results (search.php)?

Nope.
Can that feature be added? With smartphones its real easy to click the wrong vote.

Hi

I want to use this great add-on to maintain this objective.

I have one forum for my correspondents to give me the last news from their places, I want to be able as administrator or any specific group to give point (1 to 10) for every thread one of them makes in that forum.

The point that I don't recognize how to do it until now (I don't make deep research in this big thread), I want the average of points every correspondent get from our votes on his thread depending on the stories that he wrote and if it was fake, rumor or real, then I can filter my huge correspondents team and give real job to those which make good job.

Any Ideas?

Do you see the same "helpfulanswers_" templates appearing in your mobile style as the desktop themes?

If so, open up the template for your rating style (topten, etc) and add some characters to the very top, refresh and see if they appear (to see if the template is getting called up at all).

Try copying those templates over to the mobile style. Odds are the script is running fine, it just doesn't have the templates to pull up
