More Clear Voting and Status for Ideas in the Idea Center

Instead of just having a like button, is it possible to get a Up vote / Down vote buttons listed for the original idea submitted in the Idea Center? It would help users understand exactly where they need to vote as sometimes they click like on a reply instead of the original submitted idea.

I've attached screenshots from other sites with simple to more complex voting options.

  • Hi Ajay , thanks for sharing your suggestion! It is possible to change the vote button style with custom CSS. We have applied new styling to your Ideas category. If you are comfortable with CSS feel free to make adjustments to the code, or contact us at support@forumbee.com for assistance. I hope this helps!

      Forumbee Support Hi, I used to see it, but now its showing up as the old way (thumb likes) instead of voting.

    • Hi Aasim , the styling is based on the category name, and it looks like your category name changed. I've updated it and it should work now. Let me know if you need it on other categories.

    • Forumbee Support Thank you very much - in the end of next week will I probably change the structure of the categories and add some new - will they automatically have this type of voting or will I have to change for every category?

    • Carola Ahlsson Yes, any "Ideas" categories will automatically have this type of voting. When adding a new Idea category, enable the option 'Show like button in topic listing'  which  you will find in category settings > More Options.
