The simplest star rating plugin which allows visitors to rate a post based on multiple criteria and questions
Each multi rating is adjusted based on the weight.
Let V = value of multi-rating
M = max rating value for multi-rating item
W = weight for multi-rating item
C = count or multi-rating items
TW = total weights of multi-rating items
First we figure out the adjustment percentage we need to make based on the current multi-rating weight and the total multi-rating weights
A = adjustment percentage = (W / TW) * C
i.e. a count of 3 and a total weight of 4 (2, 1 and 1 for each multi-rating item)
this will create the following adjustment:
(2 / 4) * 3 = 1.5
(1 / 4) * 3 = 0.75
So if we add up the adjustments it equals the the count 1.5 + 0.75 + 0.75 = 3. If all the weights are the same, it will still equal the count.
This adjustment is then multiplied to the overall rating result = (V / M) * A

There are three ways to display the top rating results:
Each rating item currently carries an equal weight. Each rating item is given a rating out of 5 and then the average is calculated to produce the overall rating result.
All prior rating entry results will include the deleted rating item in their rating result. The rating item is not included in any new rating entry results.
You can change the style by adding CSS in your theme. There is a custom CSS option in the plugin settings page.
Yes, there is an option to prevent visitors this in the plugin settings page. Check the rating form IP address and date validation setting. This will prevent a visitor from submitting a rating form multiple times within a 24 hour period. The visitors IP address is used to identify them.
Yes they are OK in a responsive web design except the star rating image is 130px fixed width. The rating results text wrap onto the next line and the rating form is a HTML table.
