I would like to move the reactions for a post (blog/ forum/clip) to the top of the photo or title image in the post directly under the VIEWS/COMMENTS indicator that I currently have at the top (this is where  I once had likes summarized as well, until you made the reactions changes, so I am just trying to reinstate what I once had). So for instance, I'd like to move the icons summary to the line under " VIEWS: 129 | COMMENTS: 4 " in this screen shot, and to make the same change to all forum, blog and clip posts. What CSS would you suggest? Thanks.

This is a pretty important change for my site. We try to encourage interaction, but when the reaction button is buried at the end of a long blog post or even at the bottom of the photo, people are less likely to see it and less likely to engage. I have already seen a large drop off in these sorts of responses since the upgrade.

I had a likes summary at the top of the post near the views/comments summary before. I think I paid my web guy to code it, but I would rather avoid additional expenses here, as this was change was completely unplanned.

Can you give me any advice on how I can more that whole bar up? It's got to be doable. And it's really poorly placed where it is - for social engagement reasons. People are more likely to look at something with lots of reactions, so it's important to have them front and center.

The only real option would be to use custom JavaScript. We've not tried or tested it out, so I can't guarantee it would work perfectly in all scenarios (comments are particularly problematic due to dynamic reloading). If you need our assistance with a customization such as that, it would require paid Professional Services, which runs $200/hour. It may be more cost-effective to have your web guy make the changes. Unfortunately there's not any easy/trivial solution to do what you're looking for.

I think your team should consider changing this for everyone - or giving us the option of where to place it (above or below). It's a suggestion that's pretty fundamental to social media engagement and how engaged these communities can be. It doesn't feel like a customization that is unique to my circumstance and therefore one that I should pay you to do and then roll out to everyone else for free.

From my perspective, it makes a lot of sense for users to react to the post once they've seen the entire post (i.e. at the bottom), similar to the share bar. Your idea still has merit and may make more sense on some communities, so I've changed this to a suggestion for you so we can gauge feedback from other users/customers, as well.
