Hi All I'm new here, loving Vanilla so far but I cant seem to find the plugin / option to have the small stat box on each discussion.

Any help would be great.

    You have to install the Voting plugin.

    Thanks for your help, I will try it later.

    Also, is spam common with vanilla? Its my first discussion here and It has already been spammed.

    Nope, since StopForumSpam has been enabled here (1 or 2 months ago), it's the first time IIRC.
    But when it's a human, using VPN or such (at least new ip's not already listed as spammy), there's not much you can do.

    Ok, Thanks @smoigecom the plugin works great.


    I have noticed that on this install of vanilla we get the follows, views, comments boxes but the voting is disabled. How would I go about doing this?

    Thanks again

    It's using the QnA plugin, and some specific CSS to display those boxes as it was before moving from voting to QnA.

    Thanks again @luc. My forum is more for discussion rather than help so I think I will stick with the voting plugin and play with the css.

    I'm also assuming you added some modified code from the Voting plugin (>Base_BeforeDiscussionContent_Handler method) into the QnA class.qna.plugin.php?
