WP Applaud

Description

Hey there!

Do you have blogger-brain? We do. We think a lot about our content. We wonder how well it’s doing, what our readers have to say, is it good enough. But, instead of struggling with analytics, we wanted a simple way of tracking our content’s performance. And what better way to do that then a simple, social-media-like feature to get the job done!

Lo, and behold, – the WordPress Applaud plugin – WP Applaud

Our simple plugin adds a cool “clap” feature on your WordPress blog. (Just like Medium)

For every article, a reader can clap to show their appreciation towards the post. The more the claps, the more they like a post. Think of it as an upvote, a like, or a heart, shown —simply, elegantly, and professionally— as a clap.

Make your blog more interactive, get instant feedback about your posts, with the awesome WP Applaud plugin.

It doesn't show on my toolbar. I don't know how to configure it. Also, there is virtually no support. Has anyone had better luck with this?

1. User is able to applaud without login 2. If the user opens the website/page/blog from same IP address but another browser or incognito browser user is able to add applauds, Means anyone can add fake applaud
