FAQ

What does this plugin do ?

This plugin provides the ability to add the like and dislike buttons for WordPress native posts.

I have enabled the plugin but like and dislike icons are not being displayed. What may be the reason ?

Our plugin uses the_content filter to append like and dislike icons . So if your active theme’s posts template doesn’t use the_content filter to display posts content then our plugin won’t be able to display like and dislike icons.

Is there any hooks available to extend the plugin ?

Our plugin does contains many actions and filters which are described inside the Help Section

I want to display in the post detail template. Do you have a custom function?

We do have a shortcode [posts_like_dislike] which can also be used as custom function through <?php echo do_shortcode('[posts_like_dislike]');?>

It's a great plugin, does its job and is light. But we have no panel to see the statistics of our posts... It's the only thing missing and it would be a perfect plugin !

Hello, If I save all the settings and hit the save settings button it will redirect to the Settings -> General tab and when I come back to this plugin settings page all the input fields are reset and nothing has been saved!

Awesome and simple to use plugin but as someone already asked a year ago, please give users the possibility to unlike the posts (in case there's a cookie or IP restriction selected). Thanks!
