Post Installing
This add-on will require configuration
, only a default "Like" is added after installing.
  • Tools => Import Data => Import from XF1 Post Ratings
  • Content => Content Rating => Rating Types => Add Default Rating Types
    • This adds "Facebook Style" ratings of;
      • Like (y)
      • Love :love:
      • Haha :LOL:
      • Wow :eek:
      • Sad 😢
      • Angry :mad:
  • Content => Content Rating => Rating Types =>Add New Rating Type.
Installing/Uninstalling on a large forum

It is strongly recommended to use the CLI installer/uninstaller.
This add-on alters xf_like_content, which can take a very long time for a large forum.

To run the SQL manually, use;
SQL:
alter table xf_like_content
    add column sv_rating_type_id unsigned int DEFAULT NULL,
    add index like_user_id_like_date ('like_user_id','like_date');
On uninstalling non-like ratings are dropped;
SQL:
DELETE  FROM `xf_liked_content` WHERE sv_rating_type_id IS NOT NULL AND sv_rating_type_id <> 0
This is very slow.

To disable this behaviour, find uninstallStep3 in this add-on's Setup.php and comment out/remove the content of the function.

Implementation notes
  • Designed for performance, only minimal data is fetched when interacting with the rating system
    • Overrides XF2's rebuild behaviour to instead be incremental rather than count all ratings on a piece of content.
  • As MySQL's InnoDB table structure does not feature prefix compression, a content type/id pair is very inefficient space-wise.
  • Uses per-content tables which are dynamically managed to store count totals, and automagically links these to the right places for use.
  • If a content's table is "too large" to extend (ie when adding a rating type) without downtime, that content has the rating type disabled for it and the required manual SQL for the administrator to run provided.
    • "too large " table size threshold is an adjustable, may be to fully automatic or fully manual for adding columns.
