Hmmmmm??
Thank you - what a good idea- I have been waiting for a 'thumbs up' system for a while now :)

I purchased and installed the mod onto my forum www.locksmithtrader.com/forum and it looks good.
SMF 2.0.2

But when I  try to give someone a tick a bar at the top says 'Loading....' and just hangs there
I tried it twice and then switched it off.

Also I think the images are a bit faint - can the images be sharpened up a bit?

Good work Mr Hacks

For the icons I have it set to be somewhat transparent to blend in when you hover over the icon it becomes normal in appearance.

The loading bar does it happen in each case? Or just happened one time. If it happens more than once let me know what browser you are using.

Thanks for the quick reply

I tried two different icons and each time a yellow bar across the top says "Loading...."   and just hangs there
I am using google chrome

Yes- I had a fiddle with it and it does record a result on the member's profile- tried a couple of different ones
The banner at the top just hangs there until I cancel the activity that it is trying to make

I had a bit more of a look
The score reports on the member's profile but the entry under the post does not load a score. Same yellow "loading....." bar at the top that does not complete.

Sorry not to report it properly- I didn't realised until I gave you replies a tick or two that it appeared under that post.

You could check it out in the visitor area, but I would need to turn on the feature for you to see what I see.
I could turn it on for a while - let me know if you need this

I won't have access as a guest. A guest can not use the rating system. You would need to turn it on and click that link above and paste/screenshot what happens.

Try this file copy to your forum's sources folder.

Thanks for that
But I am out of my depth here- I cannot read your file that is now residing on my desktop
I have had a look at permissions but unable to update the existing file and replace it with your new one.

I will have to leave it for my IT man to upload

Is the new file going to be incorporated in your new download in which case could I uninstall and reinstall maybe???

Otherwise I will have to wait for my guru to assist and I will email him now- he is in USA so still Sunday there

cheers

Possibly it depends if it fixes your issue.

Ok - thankyou
Your new file solved the problem and it is now working correctly

I do use a variety of themes but it does not appear in some themes.???????

Learning to use it and advise our members how to make it work for us
There does not appear to be a 'reset' function for the administrator to 'clear' the testing
Overall - nice mod- thanks - having to deal with jaded members this adds some interest

My Member status should be Charter? I have paid my subscription albeit late - missed the renewal
am I in SMF or not?

Glad that file helped.

For custom themes you can try to uninstall the mod then reinstall but when you reinstall make sure check the other themes in the package manager to install to.

Or you can make the theme edits manually upload the package to http://www.smfhacks.com/smf-package-parser.html and just get the theme edits and apply them to your other themes.
