Vanilla 2.6 is here! It includes security fixes and requires PHP 7.0. We have therefore ALSO released Vanilla 2.5.2 with security patches if you are still on PHP 5.6 to give you additional time to upgrade.
Saw your post fyi if you read I did everything on my own. In the future read before you speak you only show how bad of a moderator you are and your reflection represents vanilla. So far with my experience here the service represenatives here act like children. I will go back to mybb because not only do the moderators act like professional adults. They actually answer the questions and not take personal vendettas over people asking questions even if it has been asked 2000 times they still answer it.
Can you send me a link to a forum that uses the Ratings add-on (plugin?) that you created? I have have created a private forum at http://www.changeyourworld.ca/RRCForum/ and tried setting up your Ratings (0.5) plugin. I'm a rookie at this kind of thing but I think I did it right. I used Filezilla (ftp software) to copy the "rating-plugin-0-5" folder into the "plugins" AND the "applications" directory of my vanilla site but I can't see any upvoting or downvoting buttons. Any suggestions on what I might have done wrong?
Please forgive me if this is not the best way to ask you. A private message seemed more appropriate than a public post... though for all I know this is a public post and I don't know it.
If you want to me re-post publicly so others can benefit from this, please let me know.
