Is Voting addon compatible with 2.1?

    If the addon here does not specify that it is, then it is not. 2.1 is not out for mass use yet and many plugins are not going to work. You can try to make it work or wait until the official release.

    Vote Plugin
    Requirements=Vanilla 2.0.17

  • most of the time changing &$Sender to $Sender makes most of old plugins work.

  • My guess is that it will work, it is featured in the master branch on GitHub. The required version is stated as equal to, or higher than 2.0.17

    Unfortunately, that is not always the case. For example, Vanilla 2.1 implements a slightly different event system, therefore a plugin that relies on 2.0 event system could be enabled under 2.1 (because 2.1 > 2.0.17), but it won't work properly.

    Thanks @all! Based on answers given above, will test on clone of live site and report back. Might be a while as I'll be traveling for a bit.

    Ok back. it works except for ONE thing. Clicking to "follow" on a topic from index page show -1 if you click again is goes to -2 and so on. Anyone know how to fix? I tried pasting the voting.js here but it won't take.

    hey, did you install this one ? https://github.com/vanillaforums/Addons/tree/master/plugins/Voting

    or the one from downloads? if you're using 2.1 this one here is compatible.

    or... compairing your existing voting plugin from this one on github might be a good idea

    It is a fails safe to keep people from rigging the votes. No not really but that would be a good idea... :)

    Yes, running 2.1 and installed from github: https://github.com/vanillaforums/Addons/tree/master/plugins/Voting

    That has not been updated for a while though from looking at github dates.

    Also, the top of the class.voting.plugin.php file says:

    // Define the plugin:
    $PluginInfo['Voting'] = array(
       'Name' => 'Voting',
       'Description' => 'Allows users to vote for comments and discussions. Administrators get unlimited votes.',
       'Version' => '1.1.3',
       'Author' => "Mark O'Sullivan",
       'AuthorEmail' => '[email protected]',
       'AuthorUrl' => 'http://markosullivan.ca',
       'RequiredApplications' => array('Vanilla' => '2.0.17'),
       'SettingsUrl' => '/settings/voting',
       'SettingsPermission' => 'Garden.Settings.Manage'

    One problem, I never posted about voting. My post was about follow clicks...

    it works except for ONE thing. Clicking to "follow" on a topic from index page show -1 if you click again is goes to -2 and so on.
