Someone should add the "Sad" option instead of "Like". No one "Likes" a death report.

@ryoung122 You just did. If there's no option other than a "like"-button, perhaps you don't need to react. This is a forum, not Facebook.

@930310 When faced with the choice to "Like" the post or choose nothing, I felt it was better to choose "Like". It is a helpful suggestion to add more options.

@ryoung122 See the following discussion:

 

https://globalsupercentenarianforum.com/index.php/community/debate/no-dislike-button-here-who-likes-this/#post-1372

In similar fashion, adding the possibility to react with sadness etc. will lead to it potentially being abused when disagreeing with others.

We're off topic, so I'll end the discussion here.

May Mrs. Abreu Columbie rest in peace.

@930310 "Sadness" is not the same as "Disagree". "Sadness" means just that...sad that someone died.

Thanks for the suggestion. So far, WP Foro has not released anything that adds more "like" options to a post. There is an "Emoji" addon, but that's only about smileys used within a post.

There's a dislike button for now, but I using this then only appears "you reacted this post". The word "reacted" feel me abstract, and I guess to change like "you liked/disliked this post" is better expression. But maybe technically impossible.

@record_116 (dis)liking is a form of reaction.

I mean that the expression "React", people don't know if person/people used either button like or dislike.

This is due to a wpForo update, which we cannot change. In other words, yes, this is technically impossible. In fact, I'd be much happier if there weren't a dislike button.

Yes, I just tested both the like and dislike post options on the first post of this thread. They show the same thing "you reacted". So now people can react to posts and no one except the user who reacted can know if that reaction was a like or dislike. It says the same thing either way.
