    I’m looking to add a “LIKE” button (like the one used by facebook) to the bottom of my blog postings. Actually, more so like the “Thumb up” or “Thumb down” feature used on this web-site (not spamming, just posting for example purposes) http://textsfromlastnight.com/

    Only clue I’ve gotten on how to do this, comes from the status bar whenever i hover over the link. It says “javascript rate:Up (xxxx) and javascript rate:Down (xxxx)”

    Any one know how to add this to a blog?

    You did not specify a blog address or reason for posting when you created this topic.

    This support forum is for blogs hosted at WordPress.com. If your question is about a self-hosted WordPress blog then you’ll find help at the WordPress.org forums.

    If you don’t understand the difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org, you may find this information helpful.

    If you forgot to include a link to your blog, you can reply and include it below. It’ll help people to answer your question.

    Go to dashboard>ratings>settings. I have them enabled; see it on this post for example [on home page they don’t show but show with permalinks; some WP error which they are yet to fix].

    You can add stars or thumbs and customize them too.

    Please link your username to your blog link from profile>website.

    I tried that but it’s telling me

    “Sorry! There was an error creating your rating widget. Please contact PollDaddy support to fix this.”

    in red highlighter.

    Are there any other widgets out there that you know about, that would serve the same purpose?

    I have the same problem. PollDaddy has not responded to my question. If I can’t have this I may just have to go to .org

    Anybody reading my replies above please note that I have shifted to self-hosting (wordpress.org) and you cannot see the ratings thing now.

    Thank you.
