Examples of how the plugin has been used


If you have created your own language pack (or have an update of an existing one) you can send in your .PO and .MO files so we can bundle it into I Recommend This plugin. You can download the latest POT file, and PO files in each language.

This plugin is based exactly on Benoit “LeBen” Burgener’s “I Like This” Plugin and has been modified after getting requests for the changes I had made on my website.
