    Wasn’t planning on that but it’s a great idea.

    I don’t like plugins add useless widgets to the admin so I think that the shortcode seems the best way to go.

    How would the shortcode work? How should we order the posts? A simple order by most positive votes ASC?

    The shortcode sounds ok. If would be great to have possibility using php tag as well (for inserting into template).
    It would display list of posts: title + number of voting in brackets. (default 5 posts)
    Ordering by most positive votes by number of votes.
    Optional parameters:
    – number posts to display in list
    – category (display most positive votes from one category)

    Is there a page in the Codex for that “php tag”? I’m not familiar with it (at least I think I’m not).

    Maybe it’s simply like this:

    <?= do_shortcode('[thumbs-rating-top]'); ?>

    I like the parameters you posted:

    • Number of post (default = 5)
    • Category ID

    What about the output? Could we someone be able to set what do we want to print with shortcode parameters?

    I mean, you might want to print any of the following:

    1. Post Title
    2. Post Title +25
    3. Post Title +24 -15

    What about setting these 3 different output being 1 the default so you could choose?

    Take a look at
    (Unfortunately I am a newbie in PHP & WP programming so I can’t be more helpful.)

    > What about the output?…
    Sorry, I don’t understand an example. What does means:
    “Post Title +24 -15”

    Alright togur, I already knew about do_shortcode 🙂

    About the output I meant what should the plugin print. Don’t worry I’ll figure something out 🙂

    The 1.5 version is out!

    It has a shortcode to show the most voted posts.

    Let me know if you find any problem with it.


    Excellent! I have tested it on WP 3.6 – without problem. Thanks.

    Can i use this shortcode in widgets? So that top rated posts would be on side panel.

    Hi Blagochevsky,

    Yes, absolutely! 🙂

    Paste the shortcode in a Text Widget.

    If it doesn’t work, you’ll need to allow shortcodes in your text widgets.

    It’s very simple:


    Great! Thanks
