How to disable down-votes, only allow UP-votes?

+1 vote
Is is possible to disable down-votes? I'd like to enable just up-votes, sort of like the FB LIKE concept. So, basicaly, no thumbs-down option would be shown. Just a thumbs-up button.

You can set a separate permission for downvoting posts in the 'Permissions' tab of the 'Admin' panel.

Sorry, I did not phrase that correctly. What I meant to say was: If voting for questions only on questions page is enabled by admin, then the vote icons should not be displayed on the lists. Either that, or if a user clicks on a vote up/down for questions in a list (where admin has disabled list voting) then it would redirect to the question page when clicked. For new users who don't understand that the titles are links to the actual question pages, this might increase the 'stickyness' of Q2A sites for unfamiliar users. Just a thought.
OK - I understand now. It might surprise people, but I'll think about it...

gidgreen is right, but you can also remove the button via an advanced theme, or in CSS by setting

.qa-vote-down-button { display: none; }

I implemented that in my theme - you could combine gidgreen's and Scott's ideas by setting the down-vote permission to admins only and altering the css.

your theme is so excellent ,is it possible to share it ?
It's here :

But you'll have to fine-tune it because the menu items are images, the logo links to http://orienting.us, and there may be some other little things you'll have to change.
