Title: +1 > Like
Post by: Bunstonious on February 4th, 2014, 01:16 PM
I personally think a good option to enable would be a toggle to change "Likes" to "+1"s for those that like that kind of thing...

 :hmm:

Can't see a reason for it?
Have you tried to install the plugin "flitter"?
Flitter enables some social networking (Twitter, Google+, FB) for you.
So if enabled you can turn off Likes if you want.

Terminology?
+1 is geekier. No one outside geeks gets it. Despite G+.

Like is widely use and generally accepted. +1 is not bad itself but it will get an average Jon confused.

Can't you just change the language files to change this?

Sure! You can even do it from the admin area... :)

If your page is aimed at geeks, it won't confuse users ;)

I just think it would be cool. :P

Hmm... Did we?

I think it may have crossed my mind last month when I was fighting over removing theme support from this (it was by far the most time-consuming file for me), but in the end I did it, AFAIK, and I recognize that the language editor has its good sides: because the strings are stored in the database, they're protected from accidental overwriting, and they allow noobs to easily change some parts of the website without having to play with FTP too much, or simply with the file structure. (You can add a Custom.english.php file, IIRC, to the languages folder and it'll overwrite any string you want, but I'm not sure regular admins will know/want to know about that.)

The only good thing that would come out of removing the language editor, is that I could get rid of language file caching, but considering that all PHP files are cached by now, I would end up re-doing this at some point, so...

When I get my website back (moved house and have no internets) I will work on changing to a +1 button (maybe even a graphic).
