[resolved] Great plugin but PLEASE use the images as background images (5 posts)

    It'd be 10x easier to style the buttons themselves if it used html markup instead of images for the voting buttons.

    Sure, the built in range of buttons isn't bad but it doesn't really fit in with a lot of themes. Not to mention the extra http requests that are wasted when we could just as well use a sprite in our own directories.

    Apart from that, excellent plugin, just great! :)

    I'd really love to see the buttons as <divs> though so we can easily apply our own styles to them.

    I totally agreed. The plugins is a bit dated.

    There is a pull request which is kinda outdated, waiting for the developer to complete it https://github.com/lesterchan/wp-postratings/pull/8

    If I were to hack the plugin's php files to do this myself, to change say the up/down thumbs to plain old div box's with classes, where should I look?
