Voting: Is it possible to show the voters name on the comment?

This concerns the voting plugin, when a person clicks vote is it possible to show all the voter names under the comment just like the reactions stubs, but only text names hyper linked with a link to their profile?

    Would that require honesty? That sounds like a plugin in itself , Not sure the admin would take kindly to showing their name on all the votes lol The idea behind a voting system is anonymity . If you want to publish your likes or dislikes, you can use the like this plugin which essentially does that.

  • @vrijvlinder Thanks i will have a gander at the like this plugin.

    It is actually common British slang. Mostly with older generation, or middle age people.

    "Sneak a gander at that!"

    It can also be used in a question or request "Gis'a gander?"

    The other meaning is a male goose.

    The rymying slang of gander is goose or goosey from the nursery rhyme goosey, goosey gander so you can substitute

    "Gis'a goose?"

    "Let's have a goosey at that map"

    But that is rare to non-existent nowadays.

    grep is your friend.
