What Templates are Coming With the Likers List?

There are three templates for you and each one has a specific structure. Both Inline and Popover are common for our free and Pro versions, but “Pile + Modal” which is our newest template could be accessible for our PRO customers.

Which one is your choice?

At first glance, this may be a matter of taste and you can choose one of the three available templates based on your needs. Free templates (Inline, Popover) have an older structure and you can customize their content with dynamic variables.

But the PRO version template (Pile+Modal) is more up-to-date and supports a popup to display the full list of likers. Using the PRO template is a better option for users who do not have much space and want to display a list of users like Instagram.

Modal Likers Template

What are the differences between templates?

  1. Inline: By selecting this template, the likers list is displayed after the voting button. Moreover, you can use specific dynamic variables to customize the HTML structure of the template.
  2. Popover: The same as the previous option, you can customize the HTML template to display likers’ avatars as a popover at the top of the button when you hover or click on it.
  3.  Pile + Modal: This template can be used to display an exhaustive list of users in a modern and better shape. When users click on the list, a modal box will be opened and the list of likers info can be seen.
    By selecting this template, two new options called “Likers Modal Title” and “Likers Modal Template” are added, which you can use to customize the information inside the modal box.

How to customize templates?

For free templates, we have an option called Custom HTML Template and you can customize it using the following dynamic variables. e.g.

<div class="wp-ulike-likers-list">
%START_WHILE%
	<span class="wp-ulike-liker">
		<a href="#" title="%USER_NAME%">%USER_AVATAR%</a>
	</span>
%END_WHILE%
</div>
  • %START_WHILE% (required): Start the loop.
  • %END_WHILE% (required): End the loop.
  • %USER_AVATAR% : User avatar image.
  • %BP_PROFILE_URL% : BuddyPress profile URL.
  • %UM_PROFILE_URL% : Ultimate Member profile URL.
  • %USER_NAME% : Display name of user.


In the PRO (pile + modal) template, you can also edit the list of users in the modal box and change the display information. e.g.

<a href="{up_profile_url}" class="ulp-flex-row ulp-flex-middle-xs ulp-flex-start-md">
    <span class="ulp-flex-col-md-2 ulp-user-icon">
        <img src="{avatar_url}" class="ulp-img-icon" title="{display_name}" alt="{display_name}" width="80" height="80"/>
    </span>
    <span class="ulp-flex-col-md-10 ulp-user-info">
        <span class="ulp-title">{display_name}</span>
    </span>
</a> 

Allowed Variables: {up_profile_url} , {bp_profile_url} , {um_profile_url} , {avatar_url} , {display_name} , {first_name} , {last_name} , {username} , {email}, {user_id}
