The Likes addon for WP User Manager allows users to like post, pages or other custom post types. The liked content can be displayed on the users profile.

There are three different ways to show the Like button and likes count on a piece of content.

Automatically at the End of Content

If you have certain post types that you will always want to display the Like button for, you can set these post types in the Users > Settings > General > Likes settings screen:

With a Block

If you are using the block editor you can use the Like Button block to add the button wherever you need within your content:

With a Shortcode

Alternatively, you can specify where the like button goes with the
[wpum_like_button] shortcode.
