Reaction options

Category - Choose the category for the reaction.

Verb - When enabled and possible, a verb will be used in place of the reaction name in alerts. For example, instead of "____ reacted to your post in the thread ____ with Like.", it will say "____ liked your post in the thread ____.". In the textbox, enter the verb you would like to appear. To create the example above, you would enter “liked” in the textbox.

Note for Verb: This will not work on some add-ons that implement reactions, in these cases it will revert back to the default alert text with the reaction name.
