Hi, is there a way that I can see the actual button in action before I buy? Thanks

Sorry for the delay, yes, I will add a demo today.


Is it possible to have one vote per day per IP?


Yes, it is possible.

Presale Question: Does this plugin allow for the ability to vote on a blog archive or category landing page where multiple posts are shown? Or does this only work on an individual post?

No, only on individual posts. If you modify your category.php or your archive.php template, then you can include the code directly.

Hi I Purchased the plugin a few weeks ago and I’m really liking it. Two comments/questions. One, If I go to a proxy site, like “hide.me” I’m able to vote and I’m not blocked. Two, If I’m behind a VPN, I’m able to vote without limits (i.e., I can vote infinitely)—any fixes to this? Or is this a server setting on my side?


Regarding the hide.me proxy, I suppose they use different IPs for connection and they don’t store cookies.

Regarding the VPN, I’m not sure. I need to check the plugin and see if there’s anything I can do to detect VPNs and/or proxy sites.

I need to release an updated version anyway, so expect something next week.


I am have issue the plugin and getting this error when clicking on the vote button. “Vote
Warning: require_once(../../../wp-config.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /wordpress/plug-ins/vote5/like.php on line 2

Fatal error: require_once(): Failed opening required ’../../../wp-config.php’ (include_path=’.:/usr/share/pear:/usr/share/php’) in /wordpress/plug-ins/vote5/like.php on line 2

Any thoughts or suggestion?

Why is your /wp-content/plugins/ folder called /plug-ins/? The error is because the plugin expects 2 directories deep and there’s only one. I will fix it in the next version.

Thank you for your speedy reply. How long before the next version?

Three days, I think. Friday around noon.

Can you tell us how we can display top videos on certain category?

Any reply?

Hi Wendy,you will need to modify the plugin or build your own. This plugin allows you to vote on posts, pages and custom post types.

Hi there. It seems that whenever I manually place the code in the page template the option to limit the voting button to just one category no longer works. Is that option only available when you automatically place the code, or is there a way to manually place the code and still have the button show up on just one category?

This is the correct behaviour. If you manually place the button, it will appear everywhere. The category restriction only works when the button is automatically placed. I will look into the code and change this behaviour. Expect an update by the end of this week.

Wow, thanks so much. That’s a huge help!

Done! It took a while but it’s solved now. Version 4.1.0 should be live by tomorrow.

Hi, I’m hoping your plugin will suit my needs, please confirm? I’m having a logo contest on my website, whichever logo gets most votes, becomes official logo. Will your plugin work for this? If so, I’ll buy today. Thanks!

If you set posts with different logos, then the plugin will use the posts to set the votes. So, to answer your question, yes.

I am interested in your like / dislike plugin.

I am looking for a plugin where each post is sorted by the amount of like (the most likes on top and least likes on bottom) For all posts / categories.

Can you plugin do this? Or are you able to add code to make this happen?

The plugin has a widget to show top 10 posts or pages. Is this okay for you?

i am looking for something that can do it for the entire page for all posts. similar to unijokes

No, it’s not possible.


I am interested in your Vote5. But, is it just a VOTE button? Is it not possible to switch to a 5-star rating system?

No, it’s just a vote button with advanced statistics and logs.

Why is nobody answering me on the support ticket? Please help because I have a deadline!

Hi, I think you got a vacation response when trying to email us. Our team was away during the holidays. We will pick everything up this week.

No not response at all

You should have. We set up vacation responses.

Hi! I’m interested in this plugin. Is there a way the plugin can detect VPNs/proxy sites? Also, does this add voting to all posts, or can you choose certain posts to vote on? Thanks in advance for your help!

Hi Sarah,

You can add the voting button to all posts or to specific posts. The plugin does not do any type of detection.

Hello! PRESALE QUESTION: Can I only allowed a custom user role to vote?

Not unless you tweak the plugin’s code. There are no native options for this.

When are you going to upgrade the plugin to match the latest version of wordpress. Buyer beware does not work on the latest version.

Hi, Just wondering if there is any update as to when you are going to make the new update available so that your plugin works? Thanks,

Hi, Just wondering if you are able to provide an ETA. Would love to be able to give client an eta as they have paid for your plugin.. thanks

The plugin has been upgraded to version 4.2, which fixes the issue. A notification will be sent to all customers when the plugin is live.

Please do not spam.

Hey, can i pass the ID to the voting function to vote on a specific post different that the one we are on right now?

As in count only? Something like a shortcode to display the count, similar to this?

[votecount id="73"] total votes

Which would display:

163 total votes

yes, that would work, might just show “163” so i dont have to deal with modifying the extra text ;)

This is, finally, done.

Use [vote5count id=”78”] to display the vote count for a particular post or page ID.

Also, you can now use the main function to show the vote button for a certain ID:

<?php getvote5(‘get’, 78); ?>

Your demo site doesn’t work, it redirects to some travel holiday website.

Yes, that’s the demo. Check any post or page and you’ll see the vote button.

Hello, your demo site doesn’t work. Can you check and let me know as soon as it’s up? I’m quite interesting but I need to see if it will work for me! Thank you.

Hi, I will put it up and let you know. Should be later today.

Hello, I’m still waiting for the demo to be up. Could you do it please, so I can check if it is really what I need? Thank you.
