The Vote It Up plugin enables visitors to vote for and against posts.
The following themes are currently bundled with the latest version of the plugin:
Theme support was added on version 1.0.7.
If the plugin cannot write to the database, you can try manually executing the below SQL queries (you can use phpMyAdmin to do this):
CREATE TABLE `wp_votes` ( ID int(11) NOT NULL auto_increment, post int(11) NOT NULL, votes text NOT NULL, guests text NOT NULL, usersinks text NOT NULL, guestsinks text NOT NULL, PRIMARY KEY (`ID`) ); CREATE TABLE `wp_votes_users` ( ID int(11) NOT NULL auto_increment, user int(11) NOT NULL, votes text NOT NULL, sinks text NOT NULL, PRIMARY KEY (`ID`) );
For other problems, you may want to ensure that there are no missing files, and that you have followed instructions in this Read Me file
There is no limit as to how many votes for each post can take. The vote count can also go into the negatives as well.
Vote It Up is able to handle hundreds of votes a day, without causing any server strain at all. The technical limit is about 8000 votes if all are made from guests, however that limit can be overcomed by doing a minor adjustment to the database your blog runs in.
Running the following query will remove the technical limit. Note that this will take up more space on your hosting. (Note, the following SQL query assumes your database prefix is wp_, which is default for WordPress).
ALTER TABLE `wp_votes` CHANGE `guestsinks` `guestsinks` LONGTEXT CHARACTER SET latin1 COLLATE latin1_swedish_ci NOT NULL ALTER TABLE `wp_votes` CHANGE `guests` `guests` LONGTEXT CHARACTER SET latin1 COLLATE latin1_swedish_ci NOT NULL
