XF 1.5 Like thread's first post from within the thread list


Well-known member
Would it be possible to like a thread's first post from within the thread list?

I've added the likes count to the thread_list_item so that it is viewable in the thread list...

...if possible I would like to turn it into a button so that users can like the first post from here.

I'm not sure if it will work or mess things up, so I haven't tried anything yet, but as an example, would something like this work...

                <xen:if is="{$canLike}">
                    <a href="{xen:link posts/like, $thread.first_post_id}" class="LikeLink item">Like</a>
I know that will not be correct, but it's just an example to help explain what I mean

Thank you for any input :)
