Hi, I had hidden the downvote button successfully and straightened out the bar, but I just bought Advanced Likers and now my downvote is back.  Can you guys tell me where to go to hide the downvote button now?

I'm sorry but there is no way to do that, the down-vote is part of wpDiscuz and Advanced Likers addon function it should not be removed. I'm sorry but we don't have a solution for this kind of customization.

Experience shows that hiding downvote button is necessary. They could work on a non-community site, but on community sites which I imagine people use this plugin almost exclusively on, downvote reflects more on the sentiments towards a particular user rather than evaluating the comment, furthermore it is abused from the get go as there is no limit as to how many votes a user can cast on a given day. I understand why Facebook has no downvote feature now. It just spoils the purpose of the like/dislike feature. Bad comments shall remain at 0 likes, they don't need further punishment.

Is there anyway to hide the downvote button? I tried the method mentioned here:  https://wordpress.org/support/topic/vote-up-only/?replies=5 but it doesn't work.

Hi Will,

Try this CSS code. Please navigate to Dashboard > Comments > Settings > Styling admin page, add the code in "Custom CSS Code" textarea:

span.wc-vote-link.wc-down.wc_vote.wc_not_clicked {
display: none !important;

Don't forget to delete all caches before checking.
