Like Counter Not Working

First, let me say this is an adorable plugin. I hope my theme will not prevent me using it, but this is my problem. Once a post has been "liked" once and counter goes to 1 - no one else can 'like it'. could you take a look at the site...

I have CHMOD "like.php" and "i-like-php" in my "i like this" folder to 755 using FTP.

Any ideas welcome. Cheers Helena

    I have a similiar problem maybe the same issue, all of the employees here have the same IP addresss so when an employee likes something then no one else can like it. Can I just take out the IP variable from the code?

    My site is at

    Are you still having this problem? @Helena I tried liking a post and it worked really well? Are you trying to like a post again on the same computer? That's probably why.

    Yes, we removed the IP address from the array and it is working. The widget doesn't work however because the posts are custom post types, how do I get the count on which posts are the most liked? Can I add a query to the plugin code somewhere so that it will recognize the custom post type?

    Sometimes the plus sign shows on the post but when I click it the number does not increase. Usually it works just fine but sometimes it does not increase the number. Is there a limit or a time limit for liking a post?

    I don't think there is a limit or time limit for this plugin. My knowledge doesn't extend that far; sorry. If this plugin doesn't fit your needs you could wait for support or switch plugins.
