Simplicity Likes

Adds support for Likes.

Simplicity Likes will add a heart to your posts or pages or any other post type, and we'll call them likes. Hearts are more expressive and they enable your users to convey a range of emotions. This plugin is light, fast (ajax powered) and coded with best practice. Every vote is limited by users IP Address AND a Cookie.
