To whom it may concern,
I would like to implement a "Like, Dislike" widget beside the blog posts as exactly the same as the two in the screenshots. It seems that the "Like, Dislike" widget is actually a form widget by inspection. However it is a bit complicated for me to implement as I am new to Sitefinity and web development.
How can I customize the form widget as a "like" and "dislike" button and two "dialogs" showing how many has voted above the buttons?
After I vote for like and dislike, unlike the default form widget in Sitefinity, it doesn't redirect to a new page. Is it something to deal with AJAX?
I have a lot of blog posts to insert the "Like, Dislike" widget. Should I implement a template (layout, theme? not sure!) to hold it and apply it to all blog posts?
The above "Like, Dislike" widget is considered as the same widget across all blog posts. How can the widget record the votes with respect to the blog posts it resides?
That's all I can think of to implement the widget. Would you mind giving me the implementations of the "Like, Dislike" widget with guidelines?
