Post and Comment rankings

version 1.6 of the plugin brings with it the added feature of comments rankings as well as post rankings. It boosts your websites user engagement 10x and is a great plugin.

The plugin allows you to let your visitors rate up or rate down your WordPress posts. Just like on reddit. Instantly recognisable and very powerful solution to your website needs.

Why do I want this?

The plugin adds small up and down rating arrows to your posts and works with any theme. This allows users to tell you what they like and what they don’t like.

You can display your hottest posts on your site and this gives your new visitors an instant place to look where they can find the best posts on your site. Help reduce bounce rates and keep new visitors on your site for longer.

The plugin lets you increase user engagement by letting them have a say anonymously with up and down voting icons.

What people are saying

Quality job!

Been waiting for this for too long!

Finally! Been after this for so long. Love the UX design.

Sleek design

The up and down arrows fit nicely into any theme and they light up depending on what choice the visitor has actually made. So if a user votes down the top post, it may show as +100 overall, but they will see it in blue.

If they vote it up, it will show +101 overall and they will see it in orange. The perfect customised rating tool.

The ratings are stored and displayed on your sites manage post page. You can order these from top rated to lowest rated, from best to worst or worst to best. You can also filter these results so that you can see which post is performing best in which category!!

Count It Round is a WordPress plugin that allows you easy and fast to create circular countdown timers for your website.

INSTALLATION

From your Admin Panel go to Plugins -> Add New -> Upload -> Browse and pick the countitround archive file. Click “Install Now” button. Click “Active Now” after the plugin has been installed. A new menu should now appear in your Admin Menu called “Count It Round”.

SETTINGS

From your Admin Panel go to Count It Round -> General Settings.

DISPLAY THE PLUGIN ON THE FRONT-END

The plugin uses the shortcode [countitround] to display the front-end content. From your Admin Panel create new Page or Post and type [countitround].

If you want to call it directly through “do_shortcode” use: <?php echo do_shortcode(“[countitround]”); ?>

If you intend to call the shortcode with “echo do_shortcode(“[countitround]”);” make sure you have loaded the scripts first by using: <?php countitround::enqueue_scripts(); ?>

NOTE: The plugin uses CANVAS (HTML5).

SHORTCODE EXAMPLES:

[countitround startdate="15 March 2013 12:00:00" enddate="25 August 2013 12:00:00"]

Shortcode default usage:

[countitround]
If you plan on having multiple countdowns with different settings you can use the “Generate Shortcode” feature. You can easily generate the shortcode with all options available through the WP Admin Panel -> Count It Round -> General Settings. Adjust the desired settings and click “Generate Shortcode” button at the bottom of the page. This will generate the full shortcode for you ready to use.

MoodThingy Mood Rating Widget for WordPress PRO

MoodThingy is a plugin that any blogger can use to track the emotional feedback of an individual blog post or article. The plugin can be configured to automatically appear below all of your posts, or manually placed anywhere within a post using a handy WordPress tag. A dashboard of MoodThingy stats is also offered so you can see which articles excite, amuse, or bore your readers, sorted by mood or number of votes in the past day, week, or month.

A WordPress Widget is also included in the plug-in as a way to show readers the most popular blog posts in the past day, week, month or year. The PRO version allows publishers to customize the moods, text and colors of the plug-in for their blog.

Features

  • MoodThingy Plugin – Better than a “like” or “dislike,” this handy widget is a simple way to express how an article makes them feel; we’ve found it encouraging feedback from lurkers and reducing flame bait from trolls too.
  • Admin Dashboard – See which articles excite, amuse, or bore your readers. Sort the content by mood and number of votes in the past day, week, or month. Use this data to learn about the mood of your audience, decide which stories to chase, or as an internal leaderboard to encourage your writers. You can customize the moods and colors as well.
  • MoodThingy Widget – Feature the most voted on articles on your site. Mood-based ratings are a better indicator of interest than number of comments or pageviews, making this widget a good compliment or replacement to typical “Most Popular” modules. Articles can also be filtered for just the most recent, or of all time.

Differences between the MoodThingy PRO Plug-in on CodeCanyon and the Free Version on WordPress.org

  • Customize the Mood text along with other text used in the widget.
  • In the Free version, you must use six moods. For the PRO version, you can use two to six moods. Want to just use “I LIKE THIS ” / “I DON ’T LIKE THIS ”? Now you can!
  • Hide the MoodThingy branding.

How do I install this plug-in?

  1. Download and unzip the plugin file.
  2. Upload the “moodthingy” folder into your /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  3. Go to the Plugins section of your WordPress admin and activate the MoodThingy plugin.
  4. Optionally, if your WordPress theme supports Widgets, you can insert a MoodThingy widget which lists the posts that have been voted on over a period of time.
  5. And you’re done!

In the options, you can set the settings so that the MoodThingy automatically appears at the end of each post. You can also set the plug-in to display on specific posts or pages by using the shortcode [moodthingy].

If you wish, you can customize the colors and the moods of your MoodThingy plugin. Go to the “MoodThingy” link under Settings in your WordPress Admin navigation screen.
