Support » Plugin: WP ULike » Likes/Dislike more secure logic

  • Hi,

    I really like your plugin and almost ready to buy PRO version, but seems that your plugin have some weakness in terms of security safety and rating protection. I need more safe and logic Likes/Dislikes behavior:
    + UNregistered/non-logged-in users will see only likes and can vote up Like +1.
    + Registered/logged-in users will see likes+dislikes, can vote up Like +1 or down Dislike -1, can change their previous votes, can see other users votes avatars on mouse rollover.

    To make it work it seems that you need to add just 2 very simple functions:
    1) Option to hide Dislikes from UNregistered/non-logged-in users to save rating from spoiling by foes-saboteurs (at low php level just block all dislike code to avoid hacking etc).
    2) Option to hide other users votes avatars (Dislikes and Likes too) from UNregistered/non-logged-in users.

    What do you say? Will you add those options asap?

    Dear @johnynla
    Have you checked the “Only logged in users” and “Logging Method” settings?
    We have observed all security issues in this regard. However, the functions you are considering is a dedicated mode that I can check for the next update. 🙂

    Of course I check all ULike plugin options, but for now it just don’t have possibilities for a such more protected behavior. Hope you will add those functions soon. It’s only one way to protect sites from a false dislike cheating! Please, add it ASAP!
