የተለመዱ ጥያቄዎች

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]');?>

Can I disable fontawesome?

Yes you can disable the fontawesome as well from the display settings and also you can use your own icons by using custom icon option in the display settings

Can I undo like and dislike after already liking or disliking?

Yes you can undo like or dislike by clicking the like or dislike. You can also give the different icon color for already liked or disliked icon from the display settings.

It’s a great plugin, giving 5 stars is the least I can do to thank its creator.

Awesome plugin – thanks! A quick question – any documentation on how to get this to work well when using a caching plugin? Understandably, as soon as I enable the cache (in this instance via LiteSpeed Cache plugin) the display of likes/dislikes does not update until I refresh the cache. But obviously I’d like to show this dynamic content….any tips would be most appreciated.

no way to see the votes that I could find, a fatal flaw in what otherwise was looking like the solution I was after

Super plugin, j’espère que dans le futur il y aura plus de template et que l’on pourra ajuster la taille des boutons. Great plugin, I hope in the future there will be more template and we can adjust the size of the buttons. Christophe
