Is the "Like" button for Confluence 4.2 available for Confluence 3.3.1 ?
It says on that page:
The functionality is provided by a plugin called the 'Confluence Like Plugin'
but I couldn't find such a plugin on Atlassian's Plugin Exchange.
We plan to upgrade in distance future but we want this feature NOW! :)
We prefer not to use other 3rd party solutions to implement the "Like" button since their data probably won't be compatible with the 'Confluence Like Plugin', hence we will lose all the "Liked" data when we upgrade to 4.2.
It is a plugin but that is available only in 4.2. Since it is a plugin, you can disable/enable at will and that is one reason why it was made as a plugin. But that doesn't make it available for lower versions, atleast for now!
Now I think about it, the "Like" feature I am looking for is almost identical to the existing "Watch" feature.
If I rename "Watch" to "Like" and "Stop Watching" to "Unlike", that would serve the same purpose for me.
There is a macro posted in the forum: http://forums.atlassian.com/message.jspa?messageID=257362632 which uses the comments as Likes, but I think using Watch is more elegant.
Now how can I put the "Watch" & "Stop Watching" (options under the Tools menu) onto every single page, and rename them to "Like" and "Unlike"? Any idea?
i would rather use the time to prepare the migration to Confluence 4 or 5 than doing a lot of customization in your quite old Confluence instance.
Also I don't think, that watching a page is identical to like a page. A page watched by a lot of people might be popular (in the meaning of 'like'), but maybe not all of the people who would click on the "like" button want to be informed about changes on the page.
Just my opinion.
