Remember that once you install this profile, you are NOT LOCKED IN to any feature, menu or content. Everything can always be changed, deleted or added to.

Features (Quick List)

  • Forums
  • Ratings
  • User and Group Watches
  • User Preferences screen (to allow adding a user picture/avatar)
  • 2 new users created
  • Multilingual enabled (for instructions to be internationalized)

Note:
  • Please note that this demo profile creates two users (user1 and user2) for you in your site to help you test the feature from the point of view of different users.
  • One single user can not rate his/her own posts (not even the admin), and that's why you need a second user, at least, to rate the thread or posts of another user.
  • If you try this profile in a production system, remember to remove these 2 users if you don't want to keep them in your site.

   description: This forum allows rating forum threads and will display in the header of each user reply the current rating that this user maintains on the initial forum thread. This way, you can provide more attention and further details or clarifications to those users which agree less with the contents of the initial discussion thread (idea, proposal, action, ...). When the user changes the rating on the starting message of the thread, the user choice shown in his/her reply headers will be updated to reflect the user last rating on that starting message of the thread.
