Post Like in Medio Theme


I using Post Like system by Sven Hofmann’s, it’s pretty cool. This is the scenario:
When an anonymous user clicks the like button:
– User’s IP address is stored in the post’s meta as an array.
– These IP addresses are utilized to prevent anonymous users from liking posts more than once.
– Post like count is incremented +1 and stored in post meta.
When a registered user clicks the like button:
– WP User ID in the post’s meta as an array.
– Post like count is incremented +1 and stored in post meta.
– Post ID is stored as user meta.
– User like count is incremented +1 and stored as user meta.
 
If you want use it in your theme, you can read full tutorial in his website from this link or directly read his gist:

How did you make it work inside a query loop? I haven’t figure that out using the shortcode. If I like one of the post then all are liked. Is not choosing liking that particular post-id. Any thoughts?

    The like is not saving for just that post in the loop.**
