php – WordPress Digg-Like Voting System Plugin

Posted by: admin July 12, 2020 Leave a comment


I just found out about BuddyPress (a collection of plugins that convert a WordPress MU install into a social network) and now I was wondering if there are any Digg-like voting plugins for WordPress. This would eventually integrate into a BuddyPress website, where the site members would submit, vote and comment on stories (much like Digg).

I have a feeling I will end up having to build this from scratch, but since the site will be built on WordPress, I was wondering if there were any plugins already available that add this functionality. So far I have come up empty in my search. I did find a WordPress blog that had this functionality WpVote. It even creates thumbnails of the story webpage automatically (I’m assuming) using websnapr. I browsed through the page source and didn’t seem to find any hints of a WP plugin that they are using.

How to&Answers:

BuddyPress Links is what you’re looking for:


I’ve successfully used TDO Mini Forms for user submissions combined with Vote it up to build a digg-style site.

You can create a “top votes” page using the MostVotedAllTime_Widget() function from Vote it up, or use the SortVotes() or GetVoteArray() functions to build and style your own top votes list in a customised page template.

You’ll find the full list of available functions in /vote-it-up/votingfunctions.php


Or you can try:

Pligg Voting CMS


when i was start to build my own social bookmarking, i using voteitup plugin but if you want to build your own vote button you can visit bavotasan.com and search post “simple-voting for-wordpress-with-php-and-jquery”
take a look at my own social bookmarking using it : http://nestdev.com



is a premium theme I’ve come across but never used. It’s a WP version of Digg and I believe pretty good.

Personally I use Drigg which is a Drupal version of Digg. See it in action here: http://weblinks.myfriendshotel.com Unfortunately, however, WebSnapr have just changed their code so the site is no longer showing thumbanails but hopefully as a ‘non-programmer’ I’ll find a solution soon…


Is this what you’re after?



I think [wpvote][1] use drigg module for drupal. I’ve just found buddypress plugin which has similiar function like digg social bookmarking. more detail


Not sure if this is still relevant or not but the theme used for WPVote.com has now been released on Pro Theme Design – http://prothemedesign.com/themes/nominate-for-wordpress/
