New Plugin: Reactions
05. May, 2019 - 10:27 SamBrishes

My new "Reactions" Bludit plugin allows your readers to react to your content using an Emoji (of the EmojiOne set). Select up to 5 label-abel Emojis, configure the position and the title (and the page type, where the panel should be shown) and let the Emojis free.

A new plugin is available for download, it is called Reactions and allows your readers to react to your single content pages using an Emoji. The plugin itself was requested by Kyle Shook via Twitter, even if it was a bit random. Exactly 5 configurable and label-able Emojies of the EmojiOne font / smileys can be shown within the frontend panel. You can select them on the Bludit administration, which uses the awesome EmojiOne Area JavaScript Plugin.

The readers reactions are stored as custom variable within the page database itself. A temporary storage is also applies within the session, which is just used to check if the "user has already been voted" (and show them respectively on the frontend panel). This has the disadvantage that the user can vote again if he restarts the browser, of course. But I decided this way to avoid GDPR conform questions, and in fact that this plugin has been written in less than 2 hours. A better storage may gets added in a future release.

Since today a new version is also already available, which allows you to adapt the Panel title, configure the used hook (where the panel gets applied) and which fixes the issue, that this panel gets shown on custom 404 error pages.

Check out this neat Plugin on our Plugin Page or on GitHub.

Sincerely,
Sam.
