    I noticed that in the activity feed the text reads:

    1 LIKES THIS 

    instead of:

    1 LIKE

    2 LIKES

    3 LIKES

    It means that 1 person likes this item. However, if you don't like the phrase, you can change it in the phrase manager.

    I'll try that. Is there a way to make it non-plural or plural depending on the number using the phrase manager?

    It should be plural/non plural already. The "1 likes this" is proper English for that term if one person likes something. Is it not working for "2 like this" when it's more than one?

    I'll have to look at it again. 

    I'm trying to go for:

    1 LIKE

    2 LIKES

    3 LIKES

    In my tests, the singular/plural works.

    I could change the phrase to "1 person likes this" and "2 people like this" to add "person/people" to the phrase or to remove the "this" and change it to "1 like" or "2 likes" in the script but then some would want it the first way, with person/people, and some would want it the second way with just like/likes so I think it's best to leave it like it is. lol. Thanks for asking about this.
