Easy to install and works well
By , for WP 4.1.1

This is a great plugin that seamlessly integrates likes into the activity stream across buddypress. Settings are intuitive and easy to follow giving great flexibility.

A really needed add on to this plugin is the integration with buddypress email notifications allowing users to get notified when someone likes their post to drive traffic back to the community. I would love this to be in the core or to know how to make this happen!

Much Better
By , for WP 4.1

Huge improvement.

Slight issues...when it posts to the activity saying "[somebody] liked [something]" is can look messed up. It also broke my ReShare plugin.

More stable now
By Plugin Author, for WP 4.1

The plugin has been tested and should be working fine for most users, I'm focusing on fixes for now.

Works
By , for WP trunk

This plugin works for me.

The below issue is (or is about to be) fixed:
<s>I've rated it three stars instead of five stars though, due to a bug which I describe below. If you let me know when the bug is fixed, I'm happy to bump my rating up to five stars.

There are two instances of wp_register_script() in the plugin in which the arguments appear to be the wrong way around.

The codex indicates that this is the correct order:
wp_register_script( $handle, $src, $deps, $ver, $in_footer );

But the plugin uses this order:
wp_register_script( $handle, $src, $ver, $deps, $in_footer );

I'm guessing this will cause the plugin to break on sites which don't use jQuery and it causes a PHP error to display, due to it attempting to read an array as a string.</s>

Almost perfect
By , for WP 4.0

Hi, great plugin and deserves more stars then previous post suggest.

Few things that would improe it for me are:

Option to remove like counter from button
Since that info is created as a seperate line: you and x others liked this post, making it obsolete for me.

Widget
I would like to have a most liked author or post widget

Profile info (Buddypress)
What did a person like, what is liked of a person.

BBpress integration
If you can make the like appear on forums it will be a winner and I would happily pay for this plugin.

Already a good working plugin that I like a lot, but these improvements would make it awesome.

Thanks for this plugin.

Clashes With WP 4.0
By , for WP 4.0

This plugin clashes with 4.0. Media Library will not show. Pls sort out.

Works great !!
By , for WP 4.1.1

Update - Works awesome, have no problems with my site and great plugin for buddy press, improves greatly on standard install.

Previous version had some issues with wordpress core.

Bug Issue possibly with Javascript
By , for WP 3.9.1

I installed it and used it for a bit but noted a broken slideshow driven by Jetpack that would no longer work. It displayed the error message that javascript was required.

After deactivating this plugin, it went right back to normal. I'd love to see a fix on that - it's a good plugin otherwise.
