    the concept is easy: your "like" button is just a form, submitted via ajax, that includes the id of the post and maybe other info, such as the id of the user, time, etc. the form would submit to a script that enters the "like" in a database.

    How you implement it, however, will depend entirely on what software you use for your forum and how it works - because you need to integrate with it. If your forum software has a user forum, you might have better luck asking there, since there will be people more familiar with the specific software.
