Look over to the left of this post. Do you see orange text links like up down above the member's number of posts? Those are the links for karma - up adds 1 karma point and down subtracts 1 karma point...

You will not see them for your own posts, but you should see them for anyone else's posts.

I don't know why you cannot see the links Mosh... you should be able to. The setting for using karma (in the admin area) is to be available after a member/user has made 15 posts... you have made over 70.  ???

Maybe try refreshing your page in your browser a couple of times... I have noticed once in a while that not everything on a page gets displayed unless I refresh it again... just a thought...

Hi, Mosh, you might want to check in the source code of a forum page and see if you get an "ul.reset.smalltext li a" link with the "up" or "down" text.
If you don't, there's a problem, maybe check your account settings.
It's working fine for me.

Hi Nicu,
i have tried to look for "ul.reset.smalltext li a" but nothing,
What setting can i check, on my account setting there is no option for karma links.

Key, the problem repeat on FF, Chrome, IE.

The links are not on the page.

I will try from different computer.

very very strange  :P  ???

It is strange that Mosh cannot see the up down Karma links for anyone when the rest of us can.
Maybe it is a cache issue...
Title: Re: Where is the Karma button gone ?

I have cleared the cache and reloaded the forum but no links.
Also i have tried from my mac with FF and Safari, no links.

Looks like this has happened to other people too, on SMF based forums.
Just as an example: http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=411073.0 (http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=411073.0)
It looks like it revolves somewhere between user permissions, karma addons, themes and (maybe) a required SMF update.
My guess: Key, check Mosh's permissions in the database directly. It's obviously related to his user (and maybe there are others who just didn't notice the missing karma thinggie).
