The like button is a feature in forums where the user can express that they like, enjoy or support certain post. wpForo displays the number and name of users who liked each post. This is a quantitative alternative to other methods of expressing reaction to content, like writing a reply text. Rather than posting “+1” or “Agreed”, users can use the Like button.
