How to Enable Comment Voting in Thrive Comments

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 is found inside the "Voting and Badges" option from the Thrive Comments dashboard

By clicking on the toggle, the "Voting and Badges" feature will show up, being displayed as a new section on the dashboard.

We'll start from the top: You will have 3 voting options:

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

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

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

Moving forward, you can require the users to be registered and logged in on your website, in order to vote:

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

Mark upvoted comments as No Reply Needed: 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:
