Thumbs Rating

Thumbs Rating does what you'd expect. It allows you to add a thumbs up/down to your content (posts, pages, custom post types...).

I activated the plugin and I don't see the buttons

You must specify where do you want to show the thumbs within your theme, check out the Installation instructions.

Can I customize the colors?

Absolutely. Check out the CSS within the plugin (thumbs-rating/css/style.css) and override the classes from your theme's style.css file.

When I sort the admin columns some posts disappear

If the post/page has 0 votes for the column your trying to sort, WordPress hides it. It only shows the posts/pages with at least +1 or -1 votes.

How do I show the number of votes in other parts of my theme?

Paste the following snippets inside the loop:

<?=function_exists('thumbs_rating_show_up_votes') ? thumbs_rating_show_up_votes() : ''?>
<?=function_exists('thumbs_rating_show_down_votes') ? thumbs_rating_show_down_votes() : ''?>

(Both functions accept the post ID as a parameter in case you need it)

Shortcode

The shortcode [thumbs_rating_top] accept the following parameters:

  • type: positive (default) / negative
  • posts_per_page: 5 (default)
  • category: ID (default = all)
  • show_votes: yes (default) / no
  • post_type: any (default) / post / page / books
  • show_both: no (default) / yes

Here's an example using some parameters:

[thumbs_rating_top type="positive" posts_per_page="10" post_type="post" show_votes="no"]

The shortcode in Widgets or Comments doesn't work

You might need to allow shortcodes in that sections, here's how.
