Joomla 3.1.1 Tutorial on How to Hide the Article Voting in Articles in your website.  As you can see from my screenshot below, my site currently displays the article voting.  The 5 dots are what was voted for the article.  I want to hide the Article Voting.  Below are steps on how I hid the voting for all articles on my Joomla 3.1.1 website.

  • Scroll down to ‘Show Voting’, set the following value:
    • Show Voting = ‘Hide’
  • Click on ‘Save & Close’

Now you can refresh your Joomla 3.1.1 frontend and view your articles.  You will not see the article voting on any of the articles anymore.  If you still see articles with voting options, you can check that specific article to see if the voting option was explicitly set to ‘Show’.  You can either set that to ‘Hide’, or change it back to ‘Use Global’ and it will pick up the Article Manager global settings set in the Article Manager Options.

Thanks,
