The Vote It Up plugin enables visitors to vote for and against posts.
Upload the "voteitup" folder into the "/wp-content/plugins/" directory.
Login to your WordPress Administration Panel
Activate the "Vote It Up" plug-in from the plugins page in the WordPress dashboard. If there are no error messages, the plugin is properly installed.
You can choose which of the following themes you want to represent the votes as via the VoteItUp options page. You will need to insert the relevant code (
<?php DisplayVotes(get_the_ID()); ?>) into the WordPress loop.
You can customize the plugin options via the WordPress Dashboard (
Options > Vote It Up in WordPress versions prior to 2.3,
Settings > Vote It Up in WordPress versions after 2.5).
You can install the Most Voted widget by adding the following PHP code
<?php MostVotedAllTime(); ?>. Installing this widget is not required for Vote It Up to function. If your template supports sidebar widgets, you can install it as a widget in your sidebar.
Editing votes can be done via the WordPress Dashboard (
Options > Edit Votes in WordPress versions prior to 2.3,
Settings > Edit Votes in WordPress versions after 2.5).
Automatic insertion of voting widget to posts can be enabled via a setting in the plugin options
