Fake votes

New posts start with votes counter set to 0. It doesn't look good and it doesn't attract your visitors. The "Fake votes" feature will help you solve that problem.

Use auto-calculation

Automatic votes calculation gets into account post publish date. At first votes counter won't be equal to value you set as Fake vote count base (see below) but will be only 10% of it. The counter will reach the final value after 30 days which makes it look more natural during post lifetime. To enable auto-calculation, please do as follows:

  1. Go to the WP admin panel › Snax.
  2. Switch to the Voting section.
  3. Make sure that the Voting enabled? option is checked.
  4. Set the Fake vote count base value. Be aware that
  5. Save changes.

If you prefer to set votes counter to an exact value, regardless of the "Fake vote count base" value, please do as follows:

  1. Go to the WP admin panel › Posts.
  2. Open your target post to edit.
  3. Scroll down to the Fake votes metabox.
  4. Set the Fake vote count value.
  5. Update post.
