Is it possible to make the script `user_id_check` true, but still allow users to vote once per day? It looks like currently, if `user_id_check` is set to true, they can only vote once per item?

Nevermind, I got it! I ended up doing some custom variables to make it check.

Good job!

Dear GeertDD

I would like to use the “user_login_required” option. I have a separate user_login PHP script with its own MySQL database. I followed your instructions and “user_id” variable is passed to the thumbsup/config.php file true session.

At the top of the thumbsup/config.php file is: function chk_login() { @session_start(); return @$_SESSION[‘user_id’]; }

And further down is: ‘user_id_callback’ => ‘chk_login’,

When I try to vote I get a message »You need to login in order to vote«, but when I replace »return $_SESSION['user_id'];« with »echo $_SESSION[‘user_id’];« the correct user login ID is showed.

What am I doing wrong?

GeertDD

The code you show here looks fine. Can’t tell where it is going wrong based on this information. Feel free to send me a mail with more details. Also, if you’d like to start debugging yourself already, the catch_vote() method is a good place to inspect some variables.

Can’t get your script to work. After trying to complete the first steps (after database integration) I get the following error:

“Fatal error: Class ‘ThumbsUp’ not found in /home/funpoll5/public_html/index.php on line 7”

Here is a screenshot of the page where I’m trying to include the script. http://i.imgur.com/ImSW5lc.png

Note: I’m running an linux server…so if a capital is out of place in your script it will not work. Not sure if that helps.

Please advise

GeertDD

Two things: 1) you need to move the inclusion of the thumbsup/init.php file to the very top of the file, even before the doctype or any space; 2) I’m guessing the path to your thumbsup/init.php file is not correct. I don’t know your directory structure but try each of the following:

include './thumbsup/init.php';
include '../thumbsup/init.php';
include '../../thumbsup/init.php';
include '../../../thumbsup/init.php';
Default-user

Ah I see. I have fixed the first problem, but have run into another. I am getting the error: “Fatal error: Class ‘PDO’ not found in /home/funpoll5/public_html/thumbsup/classes/thumbsup.php on line 65” when trying to include a rating section on my site. The file path is correct. Perhaps a db connection error?

Default-user

Please disregard that previous message, I fixed the problem my enabling pdo on my server (wasn’t enabled previously). May be a good idea in your documentation to make clear that: 1. thumbsup/init.php should be literally at the VERY begining of the document. and 2. Ensure .pdo is enabled on server.

Thanks for you help, appreciate it :)

GeertDD

Good job. :-) By the way, the points you mention are already included in the docs: http://www.geertdedeckere.be/shop/thumbsup/help

is it possible to create poll with images as radio buttons

GeertDD

Yes, you can, but you will need to create a new template which is not too hard to do if you start from an existing template. Basic HTML/CSS skills needed.

Hi… How difficult would it be to add the ability for voters to leave a comment about what they are voting on?

This would be a great additional feature of the script.. please advise how I might go about this and if you would consider adding the feature to your script.

GeertDD

Adding comments is not a feature I plan on adding, to be honest. However, it should be perfectly possible to use another (standalone) commenting system in sync with ThumbsUp.

Hello. I would appreciate a reply until monday because we’re little bit in hurry I had bought the ThumbsUp script from CodeCanyon, and I have a problem. I had respect all your instructions and the script works good, but the problems appears when I tried to implement the script in an iFrame.

As you can see in the following link, the script works good: http://www.zappernews.ro/thumbsup/thumbs.php I tried to embed that link in an iFrame at this link: http://www.zappernews.ro/thumbsup/index.php The script appears, but if I vote I get the error message after the vote click.

The source file for thumbs.php is: <?php include ‘init.php’ ?>

<head>
    <?php echo ThumbsUp::css() ?>
    <script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.6.4/jquery.min.js"></script>
    <?php echo ThumbsUp::javascript() ?>
</head>
<?php echo ThumbsUp::item('55')->template('thumbs_up_down') ?>

The source file for index.php is: <iframe src=”http://zappernews.ro/thumbsup/thumbs.php” width=”305” height=”45” frameborder=”0” scrolling=”no” allowtransparency=”true”></iframe>

I’m very pleased with ThumbsUp, and I’m forced to use it only in an iFrame due a framework PHP class issue. Thank you for your support, and I hope you will have a solution!

Hi , are you still here with us ? I really need your help ASAP !!! Please read your comments at least each 2 weeks ! Thank you !

GeertDD

Hi, sorry for the delay. I’ve never implemented the script into an iframe but it seems that for some reason the ajax request is failing inside that iframe.

I think the problem is related to the fact you’re mixing up the use of “www” in the URL. You should only use a single (sub)domain, the one configured in thumbsup/config.php, for the “url” setting. The iframe src attribute requests the URL without “www”, try to change that. Hope it works then.

Thank you for your reply. If I will have further problems, I will contact you.

Hey, i got a question before i buy it. Is it working with infinite scroll? usually when infinite scroll loads the next set of posts, when you vote its reloading the whole page. You need to set a callback.

GeertDD

It won’t work out of the box, I’m afraid. You’ll need to find a way to attach the eventhandler to the newly loaded items.

Hello,

How to add +10 instead of +1 ? Thanks

GeertDD

You could just add a zero in the template. That way +15 becomes +150, etc. If you really want to save a +10 in the database, things get more complicated. In short, I don’t recommend taking that route.

Hello,

Can you please advise if this script can be used on a WordPress installation?

Also, can it be used for a HTML5 website?

Regards,

GeertDD

The answer to both questions is yes. It is not a WordPress plugin, though, so just apply the regular installation instructions. Some familiarity with PHP and a WP theme are recommended.

Hi ! A question : does this plugin work with Wordpress Aveda theme ? Thanks

GeertDD

This is not a WP plugin but you can install it on a WP site. Some technical skills are recommended, you have to know your way around with theme files. I have no specific experience with the Aveda theme.

Hi There

I trying to use a custom variable in the config.php array (database_table_prefix) so that I can store the voting results in various tables. For example: ‘database_table_prefix’ => $SESSION[‘id’].’_thumbsup’,

This seems to be okay initially until a vote is cast, which causes either an ‘error’ or ‘parseerror’.

Can you offer any advice?

GeertDD

When a vote is cast, the script is called directly at the init.php file without your whole site being loaded. The problem might be that a session has not been started. A quick solution for that would be to put this code at the top of the thumbsup/config.php file:

<?php
@session_start();
Default-user

Thanks for the reply.

I’ve already tried this one… Putting session_start() at the top of the config.php just gets ignored. This is because I’ve already used session_start() (in file I want to include ‘Thumbsup’) – Before the line where I include ./thumbsup/init.php’.

Any more thoughts?
