    Is there a plugin for wordpress that you can use to vote any post upward in your websites viewing?

    For instance lets say you have a "top 100 rock" or whatever type website and want the viewers to be able to vote on that top 100 from more, the top 100 would be on the main page and anything voted out would sink deeper and deeper into the later pages. Just like a forum post. Anyone know of something like this?

    Thanks for any help! :secruity:

    I believe the plugin which you are referring to is one of the following:

    WP-PostRatings

    Code:

    GD Star Rating

    Code:

    Thanks a lot bobby, though I don't think it is what I'm looking for. I can not get the post's to move up due to votes. Are there any other voting plugins suggested? They don't have to be free ones. thanks!

    You would have to have a custom loop that displays the posts based on rating (highest to lowest). I was searching for something similar a few months ago and found no premade plugin that could handle that.

    The best thing I could find was to take one of the rating plugins that had a "top rated posts" sidebar widget and format that to look like the main section of the site.

    I'm sure someone could custom make you something, or might want to try to chop up another script like Pliqq to do the job.

    Hey thanks Hippo! I was close to chopping up scripts myself to do this indeed! My awesome keyword site has been just sitting with no traffic or design since this search! But all is fixed now! I got some good news to share that helped me and will hopefully help you!

    I FOUND a plugin for this!!!
    It is called "Wordpress Review Engine". I got it from another forum/tracker. But it's 99 bucks for the retail version, in case you are one of those that rather buy than steal.

    This plugin allows the user voting and has options to put the top votes on the front page or wherever you want. Also there was another I found on the tracker/forum but I have not tested it yet.

    I'm just mad excited to have found what I needed and I hope my find helps you and whoever else was wanting the same thing!

    :biglaugh:
