Paid Plug!

Don't go for it!

Paid Plugin!!!!
By , for WP 4.5.1

I suggest remove this plugin from here right now, since it's not free - to use, is required a signup that doesn't have free plans.

7 day trial and they make you sign up on their page

Just looking for a free simple vote button, but another paid membership on someone else's website.

Not a free version
By , for WP 4.4.2

This plugin is only 7 day trial version. Don't waste the time.

Too complex and bug in comments section
By , for WP 4.4.1

Hi I thought it's a good idea to use this plugin but there was a bug in implementing it into the wp comments section.
But what I would have liked it the option to create own icons.

you don't mention that it's monetary in no where, just after install and activating the plugin. wasting peoples time with doing this.

Feature List for Different Plans is Very Misleading
By , for WP 4.2.2

I love the the actual likebtn button - the one with the circle encapsulating the heart. I used the trial version for a week, which has the ULTRA the functionality ($39/yr).

After my free trial ended, I looked through the different plans and decided that the Pro version was best suited to my needs. All I needed was a like button - no social sharing, no popups, no statistical analysis. The plans described the various features, with one option being "Show popup after voting [popup_enabled]". I didn't want a pop-up and assumed that "enabled" meant that for the plans that did not include this option, the popup was a disabled feature. So, I bought the Pro version because it didn't enable it. Oops. After contacting the developer, "enabled" really meant that the popup came enabled and that you could only disable it if you bought one of the two premium versions.

The popup displays "Thanks for Liking" and will not disappear unless the user clicks outside of the button and/or x's-out of the button. Anything that will irritate my visitors is not something I want to include on my site, and people aren't going to be as inclined to like posts if they have to contend with a popup every time they do.

I rated this 1-star because I feel like the developer lacked integrity in how he chose to advertise the options, and I feel like I was intentionally mislead. After contacting the developer and receiving his response, I feel that even more so now. I very likely would have paid the $21 minimum plan (VIP) to get this functionality (disabling it) if it had been clear off the bat, but it wasn't. I don't want to support this add-on as a result and am searching for another like button add-on.

Does not work
By ,

Constantly communicates with likebtn server, downloading unknown scripts.

Unexpectedly stopped working (like/dislike buttons disappeared), my client was very unhappy. Do not use this crap.

Can't uninstall
By ,

i tried out the free version of the plugin. it was okay, but just not for me.

when i deactivated it, it brought down the main page of my site (a post list page). (which worked fine when i reactivated it).

i have turned off all the checkboxes for "pages", "post", "post list", and "comments", but now the "likeBtn" stuff are popping up on my main page which is not good.

i don't know what will happen if in uninstall. very annoyed.
