Thrive Comments allows you to add voting options to your comments. In this way, a comment can be ranked, based on the votes of the other users.

The feature can be found inside the "Voting and Badges" option from the Thrive Comments dashboard:

Simply click on this section to expand it and view all the available features you can use here.

​As mentioned, this article will explain the "Voting" feature. ​Should you want to read more about the "Badges" feature, make sure to check out this article.

There are 3 voting options you can use (by default, the "No voting" option is selected):

  • Up and down: the users will have the opportunity to "upvote" or "downvote" other comments:

As soon as you make this selection, several other options will appear in the dashboard:

If you activate the toggle, then all users must be registered and logged in in order to be able to vote:

The visitors that haven't signed up as users on your website will not be able to upvote/downvote other comments.

And you can also choose to "Mark upvoted comments as No Reply Needed" if you want, by checking this box:

This means that if one of the comment moderators from your website "upvotes" a comment, it will be automatically marked as "No Reply Needed" in the Comments Moderation dashboard.

  • Up only: Users can only "upvote" other comments:

As soon as you select this in the dashboard, the same features will appear right under, just as in the case of the previously explained option:

  • No voting: Users will be restricted from voting any comments.

This is how you can use the "Voting" features of the "Voting & Badges" section. Make sure to check out the second part of this tutorial, which covers the "Badges" features.
