Give users ability to favorite or 'like' content (3 posts)

    I have a few different custom content types and would like to give my users the ability to favorite or 'like' (like Facebook, but not for Facebook) pieces of content so that they can later view a list of their favorited content.

    I've searched everywhere but haven't come up with a clean solution. I'm pretty comfortable with SQL and PHP but want to make sure I'm doing this in the most efficient, clean way possible.

    Any ideas?

    Unfortunately both fall pretty far short. The first only uses cookies to store data making it impermanent, and the second is extremely basic and looks to be broken past WP 3.2. For instance users cannot immediately dislike content if they accidentally click like. They have to go to their list of liked content to unlike it. Also doubtful if it supports custom post types.

    Thanks for trying!
