    First off, this is a terrific plugin. Was as simple as uploading, installing and it was working. Talk about plug and play value! I love it! Thanks very much for a plugin like this, I searched for a whole day trying to find a decent voting system.

    Some ideas for next release, I did read that some of these have been done, or thought about, but I will mention them anyway.

    A shortcode - For my type of thumbs up, I really want to be able to put it on just a couple of pages of my choice, and a short code makes this very easy to do whilst not having to worry about settings for other pages and the thumbs turning up on other pages without me knowing.

    1 vote per day for all - A system where they can only vote once in the time frame, for the entire site. So if there is 10 thumbs on the one page, they can only have one vote.

    Idle message - A message next to the thumbs before any action is taken. Like "Vote for this page now!".

    Tracking Settings - Option to set whether you want the votes tracked by IP, cookie, username, or a combination of two or three of those options.

    Thanks again for a top quality plugin. I cant wait for the next release!

    One problem I found, when it is loaded, on the widget screen anything below the buttons for it can no longer be dragged? I have uninstalled everything and only left this plugin activated.

    Thanks very much for your appreciation and all the ideas you have provided. Glad to let you know that some of these functionalities (shortcode, idle message) have already been implemented in the next release which will be available soon.

    I am not sure whether "1 vote per day for all" can be implemented as it may not be possible to determine which posts are available on the same page. An alternative functionality may be if those all posts belong to the same category and you allow only one vote for any of the posts from that category.

    Tracking settings other than IP can be a bit of problem. Ex- lets say we use cookie to save these data. User can easily clear the cookie or use another browser to vote again which actually should not be allowed.

    With username/userid, as of now we are not storing userid even though when allowing only registered users to vote. So if we use this setting now, we don't have previous values to cross-check with.

    I am not sure about the problem you have mentioned above. Any further explanation or screenshot will help.

    Hello, I just installed your plugin. you are a genius! thanks for doing that. I was wondering however if it had the same functionality with videos?

    My problem turned out to be a browser problem. Nothing to do with your plugin. Your plugin just so happened to be in the place the problem started :P

    Timothy, by videos do you mean attachment videos for posts? As of now this is only for a complete post.
