How to modify it if I want Horizontal or Vertical?

You can set it using the Widget (in the options Widget) or with the shortcodes [simplevoteme type= »v »] for vertical mode, or [simplevoteme type= »h »] for horizontal mode.

What about validation errors, will it still maintain my WP theme?

The plugin uses minimum CSS and inserts valid HTML when necessary.

I was looking for a simple method to gather feedback from my readers. I didn’t expect them to write something (who has time for that?) I simply wanted them to click on something. All that star ratings stuff did not fit my needs because I wanted to provide some specific options such as « the post didn’t help me », « the post sort of helped me » « the post was really helpful ». Simple Vote Me did the job very nicely. The default smiley images did not quite fit but the author made it very easy to replace them. I created some button style images with some text so I could communicate my questions/option for my readers. I’m happy! Thanks for the good work.

Great plugin for our target audience of children. It was easy to change the icons to suit our needs. The support has also been very good.

Hi, Gonzalo… I’ve already installed this great plugin to one of my site: And I would like suggest you to add a little descripcion to each smile o mood. If you do so, for example I can use for a happy smile icon the following text (Happy, I like, I love it, etc…) With This function the plugin will be more interactive and alive! Sorry for my inglish, In from Dominican Republic. Thanks, and God bless you
