I have a site with joomla 1.6, and at this site I have a blog page with a vote feature, by default this vote feature (of Joomla) appears between title of the article and its content. I would like this vote feature appears after the end of article content.

Where can I move this?

Thank you

you need to change the ordering for the item in module manager on its configuration page.

But this ordering is valid to de article content, not just to the vote feature. I enabled the feature using the table "Article Options > Show Voting" and there is not a option just to change the order of voting, no?

Have you got a link to your site?  
You need to rejig where you place this but I need to see the site to be able to tell you where to change it.

It may need to be changed via the css

As you see the avaliation appears right below article title, i would like it appears right after the end of the title, in the center of the page.

But I did not get, tks.

Righto this fix should do it
You should look for the file /plugins/content/vote.php and change

$mainframe->registerEvent( 'onBeforeDisplayContent', 'plgContentVote' );


$mainframe->registerEvent( 'onAfterDisplayContent', 'plgContentVote' );

It worked perfectly, just one point, in Joomla 1.6 is a little bit different, as below:

public function onContentAfterDisplay($context, &$row, &$params, $page=0)
