What does this plugin do ?

This plugin provides the ability to add the like and dislike buttons for WordPress native posts.

I have enabled the plugin but like and dislike icons are not being displayed. What may be the reason ?

Our plugin uses the_content filter to append like and dislike icons . So if your active theme’s posts template doesn’t use the_content filter to display posts content then our plugin won’t be able to display like and dislike icons.

Is there any hooks available to extend the plugin ?

Our plugin does contains many actions and filters which are described inside the Help Section

I want to display in the post detail template. Do you have a custom function?

We do have a shortcode [posts_like_dislike] which can also be used as custom function through <?php echo do_shortcode('[posts_like_dislike]');?>

Simple and customizable, what I was looking for. I would love that there was an option to modify the amount of likes... when I tried it I pressed the button a lot and there was no turning back haha.

This very simple plugin works well, but it's missing 2 small features that would make it just perfect. 1. Unlike option. Users currently can't reverse their like/dislike selection. 2. Show Like/Dislike options in index page Would definitely put 5 stars, but mostly the inability to unlike makes it unusable for some use cases.
