I'm creating my own theme for my website, and I've been trying to add a plugin to allow a "recommend" style functionality. The two I've tried (WPI Like Post and I Recommend This) both work fine in the default theme but fail to have any functionality when I turn my custom theme on.
I'm wondering if there is some element I am missing in my theme code -- I can see two possibilities:
1. Something in my theme is making the plugins look in the wrong path
2. There is some required code line that I have missing from my theme which is causing some issue
Can anyone offer some help? Here's a sample page (note that this is all dummy content and this site is not live nor complete):
