[resolved] Any change of a wordpress plug a la "Recommend this post" (7 posts)

    Gothamist / Londonist / Wooster Collective have an excellent javascript / php / cgi/ ajax feature that sits at the bottom of each post "Recommend this post"

    How would I implement this into wordpress? Or is there a plug-in that exist to offer a similar function?

    I really want a single recommend this post clickable feature - not a rate this post from one to 5 - and a page that illustrates the most recommended posts would also be useful.

    See it in effect @ Wooster Collective (A moveable type blog)

    Did you check out the Plugins page in the Codex, the online manual?

    The only thing that I could find that was close is "post vote" which used to be at http://nfo.zackdesign.biz/archives/plugins/338

    is this available anymore? The description "Allows users to vote on posts, and brings all post votes to a single database where posts are ranked according to how good users thought the post was. There is no rating system, just vote counting." sounds like just what I am looking for.

    Maybe you should define what exactly do you mean by "recommend"?
    I thought emailing it, like "tell-a-friend"...

    What I mean is, the reader clicks "Recommend this post" link at the bottom of each post, and i think it uses Javascript or Ajax wizardry to send information to a simple database, so that you can create a page that ranks recent posts in order of how many people have clicked "Recommend this post".

    I know this thread is dead and gone, but this has been bugging me for a while too, but I think I've finally figured out a way to replicate this behavior. I figured I'd post it for anyone else looking for the same thing.

    The wp-postratings plugin from Lester Chan has several configuration options. If you select a Max Ratings value of 1, you essentially have a binary "on/off" recommendation engine. Then, use the "get most rated" function to show off which posts have been most often recommended.

    I'm currently using the "star" rating, but the graphic could be changed to anything. I'm thinking about coming up with a little button instead.
