We are setting up a blog-hosting service using a multi-blog version of Wordpress called Lyceum. ([url removed, login to view]) It is a fork of Wordpress and works like "WordpressMU" ([url removed, login to view]), the software behind [url removed, login to view] (that's dot-com, which is distinct from [url removed, login to view] which is where you can download the standalone blog software). What we need is this: an voting button/ability for each post in the blogs of users. It's like [url removed, login to view] (also: [url removed, login to view], the opensource clone of Digg) where users/visitors can vote on posts in the blog posts of the members of our site that's running Lyceum. Votes can either be single votes (like Digg), binary (yes/no like [url removed, login to view]) or 5-star. There are already plugins for these, but the problem is that they're either for other software (like Pligg) or for the main singl-user Wordpress backend. What we need is to apply this ability into the posts in the blogs in our site (again, using Lyceum), so users can vote, and the vote will count towards the total counters in the database. For example: 1) Let's say our site's name is [url removed, login to view], and it is a blog-hosting service running Lyceum and provides free blogs to members. 2) Members sign-up and start blogging 3) Users who read the various members' blogs can vote on their posts, showing they like them or not. Voting is AJAX-based so users can vote without leaving the blog post's page, and can vote on numerous blog posts if they're listed in the same page (such as the member's blog homepage). 4) Each vote is added and tallied to the totals in the counters in the database 5) The highest votes (according to a set threshold) are eligible for inclusion in our blog hosting site's homepage. Also, it will take advantage of the blog permissions so that members' posts can immediately be eligible for homepage status if site "moderators" voted on it, even if it hasn't reached the minimum threshold of vote quantity yet. That's it. Thank you.
