Request: the code to send to the API

Send an API request to this endpoint in order to cast a vote for a comment:

PUT /loudvoice/votes/comments/<comment_token>/authors/<author_token>.json

The <comment_token> and <author_token> must be replaced by the unique identifiers of the comment that is being voted for and the author leaving the vote.

Authors may not vote for their own comments and may not cast more than one vote per comment. If there is already a vote by that author for that comment, that vote will be removed before adding the new entry.

PUT data to be included in the request

  "request": {
    "do_update_counters": "#do_update_counters#",
    "vote": {
      "direction": "#direction#",
      "ip_address": "#ip_address#"
Key Description
If disabled, adding a vote will not update the internal vote counters of the comment. You can manually set the counters by updating the comment itself.
Default: true
Vote Metadata
* direction
string, predefined
The direction of this vote. May either be up or down.

string, IPv4

Result: the code returned by the API

On success, the API either returns the HTTP status code 201 if a new vote was added, or the HTTP status code 200 if an existing vote was replaced. A different HTTP status code indicates that an error occured while processing the request.
