This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.



HeartThis adds a minimalistic “heart” button to let your visitors tell you when they really enjoy your content. It works similar to the way hearts on Twitter or Likes on Facebook work.

When a user clicks the heart button, their vote is counted and displayed as a single heart. HeartThis comes with a built-in popular posts widget that sorts posts based on the number of hearts they have. You can also use the saved “hearts” information in your own custom themes and plugins however you like.

HeartThis has the ability to automatically display hearts at the bottom of any post type, which can be selected from the options screen inside the WordPress admin dashboard. If you’d like more control over where and how your hearts display, you can also use the [heart_this] shortcode or heart_this_hearts() template tag to display them inside your content or theme.


If you’d like to submit code patches or contribute in any other way, please fork the plugin on GitHub.

Sencillo y práctico. Este plugin aún sigue funcionando en la última versión de WordPress. No encontré otro igual. Una lastima que no sigan desarrollándolo. Sería bueno que alguien tome el mando y pueda darle más funcionalidades.
