Stack Info

Overview

Simply drop a Loveit stack anywhere in your page, and start collecting likes. The stack requires no database or any initial setup. A visitor clicking your Loveit stack will increment the count up. The stack is smart enough to know if a returning visitor gave an instance of the stack a click previously. So no one may sit there clicking the stack repeatedly giving a dishonest like count.

Loveit communicates with it own PHP file to keep count of the likes, but doing this via Ajax ensures that the stack has no need to force you page to have a .php file extension. This is critical to maintaining already established inbound links to a page that is currently of the .html type.

Choose between two styles of heart icon, or two styles of the thumbs up icon, and you can choose the normal and hover state colours.

The are 3 simple language settings for the three possible texts that can be displayed next to the icon at different times. You can see the stack in action on every demo page of the Doobox website, in the grey column to the right, and also in the live demos below.

Manipulating the like count

All the like counts for each of the buttons you added to a page, are stored in a text file on your server, relative to the page.

If you navigate on your server to the location of the html file of the page in question. At that same level you will see a folder called "whatEverYourPageIsCalled_files". Open it up and inside you will see another folder called "loveitAssets". Open that up and you will see a text file called "loveitCounts.txt".

Inside the file, each line of text relates to each of the download buttons in the page. It will look something like this:

stacks_in_895_page61,30
stacks_in_895_page61,42

The number following the last comma on each line is the current like count for each of the buttons.

Note: This text file will not exist until at least one like has been performed on the page in question. And only like stacks that have at least 1 like will already have their own line assigned.
