That would be really great. There are many times when I want to acknowledge a post with agreement without having to repeat the same points in a post of my own. Just laziness I suppose.

I've modified the Thanks for posts ext so that it support 3.3. Your are now able to :approve: a post at the top right corner of the post.

Dear Otseng. I do not get the "thanks for the post" option, but I do see the thanks listing in the top right general corner. Something's wrong? :?:

It won't show up on your own posts, but you should be able to see for other's posts.

For example:

Oh, that is VERY cool @otseng
Great job! I like how it is incremental,
and more people can add on.

Thank you, nice work!

P.S. if you ever need ways to generate more revenue
to support the website management, some sites allow
members to buy tokens to post. So if people want to
give Trophies or Stars, Angels or Hearts, you could have
a store where people can earn credits by paying for
membership that is optional. But this would give access
to a section to "buy" tokens then place them on pages.

I've noticed that the thanks tab isn't available in older posts, which makes sense, but also in some forums where new posts have been made the option isn't available. Bible Study and Random Ramblings for example. Is that intentional?

ETA: Actually, I've looked around a bit more and discovered that some older posts do have the tab and others don't, so it's probably more to do with the sub-forum than the age of the post.

You're correct. There were some that did not have the permission to thank enabled. I've now changed them. Post here if you see any that still has it missing.
