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.

You'll have to edit the helpful answers bit template to remove the phrase and then layer in the vote counts.

First off, I want to thank you for an incredible mod. I love it.

I apologize for being a pain in the butt, but how do you access the helpful answers bit template? I've been trying to achieve a similar look, but I just can't seem to find it.

It's in your template manager... You can look it up directly [it's grouped with the rest of the mod's templates] or search by html elements.

I appreciate that. I was going out of my way to find the words exactly, and I didn't think of just looking for a rawphrase. Thanks.

Did you enable the mod in the forum you are viewing threads for? Did you review the settings beyond just clicking yes [some yes are to disable things]?

got quite some issues with correct code for ""helpful_answers_mosthelp_post""

seems like the url / value of the 'most voted' fails

yet ""helpful_toppost"" works fine

vB 4.2.0 pl3

tried both auto and manual insert to template

1.
can anyone provide fully working code example for ""helpful_answers_mosthelp_post"" ?

2.
any has simple fix for /profile.php?do=helpfulans
to show actual thread names ?

What do you mean it "fails"?

in short the default code ""helpful_answers_mosthelp_post"" don't work or not imports properly ...

hence why I'm asking how it looks, can you post the content of it (after installed)?

Is the template appearing in your template manager?

Did you enable the option?

I noticed you can ban individual users from voting, I want to ban every single user but one selected usergroup is this possible?

It's not something you can do without hacking into the code yourself.
