Great, lightweight plugin for bbpress topics/replies
By , for WP 4.1.1

I wanted a way for readers/users to up-vote any/all topics/replies in bbpress without exponentially slowing down my site. By not adding user data into the voting process and only adding meta data to the posts this plugin performs beautifully. No needless and potentially crippling cross user/replies/topics database querying.

I simple inserted this plugin's function into the single-reply-loop (or whatever your theme calls it) within bbpress. I chose to put it right

the content--not in the content as this screws with the quote feature of the forums.

With some css styling things look great.

Please, DON'T over complicate this plugin and ruin its primary benefit--efficiency. I see lots of requests for "extra" features in the support forum of this plugin and it scares me.

For those wanting more complexity/features there are plenty of other more bloated options available. Simplicity is its own reward.

Thanks a lot, Chad

I haven't used the plugin much yet, but so far the development team has been responsive and helpful.

Just great!

i have tried many of the other bloated voting plugins that can't compete with the simplicity and ease of use this plugin has. i would recommend it to anyone who wants a rating system on their website, the support is great and its very customizable.

Great plugin, even greater support!

Works perfectly. The plugin author's support is perfect.

very good lite weight plugin

There are so many different voting plugins. Most of them are packed with full of features which sucks as rating a post should not decrease the website performance. I understand most of the plugins are meant for people who want everything to be automatic. But download it and do little work yourself and you will be more than happy when website performance is as good as it was. I wish there would be more these light weight plugins.

Thank you Sir!

Super effective yet super simple

After trying more than 20 rating/voting plugins that were overpriced/overcomplicated/not so pretty... i've came across ThumbsRating! Amazing simple and effective plugin!
Just wish it had IP function along with HTML5 Local Storage! Thank You!

Simple... good results!

If you don't need a lot of custom features, this simple plugin will do the trick! Easy to set up and use. Good job!
