WP Post Likes


Want to add a simple and efficient post likes button?

This plugin provides the wp_post_likes() template tag which generates simple and efficient likes button. See the installation instructions for using it in your theme.




  1. Open wp-content/plugins Folder
  2. Put: Folder: wp-post-likes
  3. Activate WP Post Likes Plugin


  1. Open wp-content/themes/<YOUR THEME NAME>/index.php
  2. You may place it in archive.php, single.php, post.php or page.php also.
  3. Find: <?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
  4. Add anywhere below it (the place you want the likes button to show): <?php if ( function_exists( 'wp_post_likes' ) ) { wp_post_likes(); } ?>

* If you DO NOT want the likes to appear in every post/page, DO NOT use the code above. Just type in [wp-post-likes] into the selected post/page content and it will embed likes into that post/page only.
