I have a Likes count column in a custom list .

I am trying to update the likecount from client side using REST API.

If a user has clicked on Like once, then it should disable the like button for that user.

It should only allow user to do that once. Any ideas out there?

  • Hey, see here for my blog post about that: afrait.com/blog/like-list-items-facebook-like-en and here: sharepoint.stackexchange.com/questions/163301/…. Maybe this helps

Instead of a count column you could have multi-value user column. The count of likes is the number of values in that column. So if the users ID is in the field, he will not be allowed to press like again.
