    WDF is now using the XenForo software, which is different in many ways from the vBulletin software most forum posters are used to. Many vBulletin forums include a feature known as Reputation. XenForo has a similar feature, except that it follows the Facebook logic and is known as "Like".

    So how do you "Like" a post? For the purposes of this mini-tutorial, I'm going to use one of AlphaMare's posts, which I've screen captured below:



    On the bottom right corner of each post, below the user's signature (if applicable), is the "Like" link, along with a permalink to the post itself and a reply with quote button. I've highlighted the "Like" link myself just to make it easier to spot.

    In order to Like a post, simply click this link. You don't need to do anything else. You should see a result similar to the one I've posted below:



    The area I've highlighted in red shows that you now "Like" the post.

    Some of you may notice that "Likes Received" did not increase on the left hand side of the post, which contains a summary of the poster's activities and location. This is normal, and if you either refresh the thread you're on or leave it and come back to it, the Likes Received will increase.

    Hopefully this clears some things up for people.

    If someone helped you out, be sure to "Like" their post and/or help them in kind. The "Like" link is on the bottom right of each post, beside the "Share" link.

    Damn skippy I do! It's a popularity contest!

    AlphaMare, you're not shy. That's why you got the benefit of syndication! Your post has now been redistributed and will stay in image form for all of eternity...which online is about 8 minutes and 27 seconds.

    well, I guess 8 minutes and 27 seconds is a pretty long time if you're Watson...

    Seriously, I'm trying to figure out the new setup and that has helped a lot.

    Now please tell me if I'm right - clicking the little box at the bottom left of a member's sig is how you can follow them?

    There are a few here who post with both intelligence and humour and I'd like to keep track of 'em.
    I've been entering names by typing them in, but I'm sure there is a simpler way.

    Haven't gotten that far with it yet. I'm not big on following people.

    Although it looks like you're right. Click the user's name in the bottom left corner, then click the "Follow" link in the top right of the user's profile page.

    No. That checkbox is for the moderator options. Check out a thread in 2 different browsers (one which you're logged in and one that you're not).

    Click their name / avatar, and in the pop up box, select follow. Or, go to their profile and select Follow there.

    Well, I'm logged in here and I have this page open in Chrome, not logged in, and the little box is not showing in either one.
    Have I been un-modded and just didn't know it? LOL

    Then how'd you see the box in the first place lol? Yes, you're still a mod.

    I don't know - it was there and now it's gone - doesn't matter which forum otr which browser, just can't see 'em anymore!
