What does this plugin do ?
This plugin provides the ability to add the like and dislike buttons for WordPress native comments.
I have enabled the plugin but like and dislike icons are not being displayed. What may be the reason ?
Our plugin uses comment_text filter to append like and dislike icons . So if your active theme’s comments template doesn’t use comment_text filter to display comments text then our plugin won’t be able to display like and dislike icons.
Is there any hooks available to extend the plugin ?
Our plugin does contains many actions and filters which are described inside the Help Section
