Hi, I thank you for this plugin, very nice, useful and complete even free version meets my needs.

I could only find three plugins that allow adding more post reactions than a simple like and dislike and this is the only one that does it hassle-free. I am trying to keep the bulk of my focus on creating and modifying PHP code to specific site related features. This plugin only required me to convert my reaction images to SVG format and do a little CSS tinkering and voila! Perfectly matches my design and does exactly what I needed it to do. Thank you for creating this.

Paid version is super great and exactly what I was looking for. My only feedback is that I wish I could duplicate the feature with more, different sets of Reaction buttons, to further customize my userbase participation.

I never seen such a rating plugin. Because I can change all rating pictures according to my needs. It is super compatible with cache plugins. Most of the rating plugins do not work with cache plugins. But Da Reactions is super for all needed feature. People does not yet know.
