Small mod to use CSS instead of HTML Button

I made a small mod to the plugin to use CSS instead of the HTML button. To do the same here are the changes I made:

in default.php

change line 274 to:

  $QuoteText = T('<span class="likeicon">Like</span>');

Add this to the CSS

  span.Like span.LikeThis a span.likeicon
 {
  background: #6A8789;
border: none;
  -webkit-border-radius: 5px;
  -moz-border-radius: 5px;
  -o-border-radius: 5px;
  border-radius: 5px;
  color: white;
  margin: 0;
  padding-left: 5px !important;
  padding-right: 5px;
  border: 0;
  outline: 0;
 text-align: center;
  }

Output will look like below.( I modified the original CSS to be blue on likes)

    Cool! This is exactly the same way I got into modding Vanilla. The addons here really do provide some great insight into what is possible using this framework.

    In the tradition of providing constructive feedback, I offer the following points.

    Looking at your CSS, it seems that the extra span is unnecessary. Changing your code to T('Like') should provide the same look. This would leave you with lighter weight markup (and who doesn't like that!).

    If T('Like') is too common of a phrase, you could change it to something like T('Plugin.ILikeThis.Like', 'Like'). This lets you use the phrase Plugin.ILikeThis.Like as the key in your locale definitions.

    I don't know if I have seen you around before, so welcome to the community!

    I come and go like the wind. I used to be here a lot. Made some plugins ect. Then my project ended and I had no Vanilla fun. But now I am back :) and I hope to stay. I have a huge Vanilla project for my personal use I am building. Thanks for the code change.
