Liking Essentials


AEM 6.4 has reached the end of extended support and this documentation is no longer updated. For further details, see our technical support periods. Find the supported versions here.

The liking component, a tally subclass, is a useful tool that allows members to express a positive opinion about a particular piece of content by simply selecting the heart icon.

Placing multiple instances of a liking component on the same page is allowed; each instance must be configured with an unique tally name property.

Anonymous posting of a like is not supported. Site visitors must register and sign in to participate in liking. The signed in visitor (member) may toggle like on and off at any time.

Accessing Posted Voting (UGC)

UGC should be moderated using one of the standard methods for moderation.
See Moderating User Generated Content.

As of AEM 6.1 Communities, use of a common store for UGC includes programmatic access to UGC regardless of the chosen storage option (such as ASRP, MSRP or JSRP).

The location and format of the UGC in the repository is subject to change without warning.
