Recipe Card Blocks Pro

When user ratings are enabled we store a wpzoom-user-rating-recipe-%recipe_ID cookie (with %recipe_ID% the ID of the recipe post) that contains the rating this user has given to a particular recipe. And we store a wpzoom-not-logged-user-id cookie (with generated random string ID as value) if user is not logged in. This cookies is used as (one of the) measures to prevent rating spam. Following cookies wpzoom-user-rating-recipe-%recipe_ID% are stored for 365 days (one year) and wpzoom-not-logged-user-id are stored for 7 days.

When you click the “like” button (heart icon) to like a post, a post likes cookie will be saved in the browser on your computer.

So you will not be able to click on the button again within 30 days to “like” the same post again.
