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

This is a great plugin. I only wish it had a restriction to where only logged in members can like or dislike a comment to prevent spam and haters. Do you think you'll add this feature?

It only lets you display the thumb just before or just after your comment. This thing would be really good if you could display the thumb (like button) with a shortcode. As it is I need to do all sort of markup juju to get the thumb to show in the right place.
