How can I remove my "thanks" from a post?

This discussion is related to the Thankful People addon.

your plugin works basically great.

I just did not found out how I can REMOVE a thanks, when I accidently (or for test purposes) clicked "thanks" on a post?

Thanks in advance,

    1. Remove record from database using SQL client (see table ThanksLog), than run

    2. Enable 'Take back' option (see readme)

  • Thanks for your answer.

    Option 2 works, though the output changes then from "thanked by: 1" to "thanked by: 0" instead of disappearing completely.

    Maybe a suggestion: I needed some time to figure out where to put the
    $Configuration['Plugins']['ThankfulPeople']['AllowTakeBack'] = False;

    Maybe you could mention in the readme-file that it belongs in the config.php file in the "forum/conf" folder.

    Thanks, Robert

  • I added the configuration line to /conf/config.php but I still cannot Unthank. Is there anything else I need to do or can check?

    @Fengol You added $Configuration['Plugins']['ThankfulPeople']['AllowTakeBack'] = TRUE; to your config?
