Is there a dislike / thumbs down button?

No. This plugin uses the same button for like and unlike. You can however set different icons for the liked and unliked state.

Can this be used as a voting tool?

Not yet. The plugin cannot show a sorted post list based on all likes currently. But you can send us your feature request via: or via the support form here.

Is this a favorite tool?

In a limited way. You can use these shortcodes to display a list of user liked posts:

I had looked for many similar plugins but it seems that nowadays they are not as common as they were years ago. Finally, I came across this one that fulfilled all the needs I required.It is easy to use, elegant and GDPR compliant. I highly recommend it!

An excellent plugin. I implemented it into an Elementor Single Post and Post Loop template with relative ease because of the many options available.The 'Full Page Caching support' option is great too as I, like many use caching on my sites.

Simple and fast plugin, easily customizable. Just what I needed for my blog. And when there were small problems after the update, support responded in a matter of hours and the problem was solved. Thumbs up!
