Thumbs Rating does what you'd expect. It allows you to add a thumbs up/down to your content (posts, pages, custom post types...).
This is very nice plugin and very light weighted. I had to modify core files to use it on my website. So I moved it into theme and noticed, essentially it's only 2 functions that does all the magic and you only need those for voting feature. :)
This is highly customizable plugin and you can include your own styles. Kudos to the developer but I think he should include some basic features into this plugin.
I love it. :)
Just used it on my WordPress Newsboard at http://bowo.io/wpnews
I was looking for something simple and lightweight that do just one thing: register likes for a page. This one wins it.
I just wish I didn't need to go to the plugin's php file to modify the text, separator and counter, and add custom classes to them. For now, I have to do that, and it works. :-)
Here's the customization I made
$link_up = '<span class="thumbs-rating-up'. ( (isset($thumbs_rating_up_count) && intval($thumbs_rating_up_count) > 0 ) ? ' thumbs-rating-voted' : '' ) .'" onclick="thumbs_rating_vote(' . $post_ID . ', 1);" data-text="' . __('Like','thumbs-rating') . '"><span class="thumbs-rating-spacer"> | </span><span class="thumbs-rating-counter">' . $thumbs_rating_up_count . '</span></span>';
Perhaps add the custom classes so we can easily style it via CSS, and option to easily change "Vote Up +" text in next version?
Great plugin that offers simple and straightforward thumb up/down voting.
Because of the way Ricard (the plugin developer) has put it together, it is quite easy to adjust the plugin to your liking, for example to change the text with FontAwesome icons (https://gist.github.com/senlin/294c4a80786a9b16a925).
Thanks for developing and supporting the plugin so actively!
best at everything.
Very easy to setup, a big plus for being highly CSS customizable and last but not the least, prompt support from developer.
I highly recommend this plugin for your rating needs!
an awesome plugin!
I'd like to contribute my translation packages,but how?
It's a great plugin without complexity. I could manage all I want with using css. Author is fast responding and listens to user issues. Thanks!
This plugin does the work very well. Lightweight and easy to customize. Also real-time support!
I have tried all plugins in order to achieve the simplest task. A lightweight/fast and simple thumbs rating solution. Thumbs rating by Rick is honestly the best it caused no extra server load or problems on my site.
The developer of the plugin Ricard Torres, is also very kind friendly and prompt to solve any issues and support the plugin. Im sure this plugin will become the 1# thumbs rating plugin for wordpress.
Thumbs up for this plugin! A+
One of the best wordpress rating out there.Good job mate.
