WTI Like Post

A smooth ajax-based thumbs up/down functionality for wordpress posts/pages. PRO version is also available.

WTI Like Post is a plugin for adding like (thumbs up) and unlike (thumbs down) functionality for posts/pages. On admin end alongwith handful of configuration settings, it will show a list of most liked posts/pages. If you have already liked a post/page and now you dislike it, then the old voting will be cancelled and vice-versa.
