    I am trying to install and run this plugin:
    http://www.dangrossman.info/wp-dg-review-site

    it was installed and activated without a single problem, it shows that it is working. What I need is to know how can I use this in the site? Does anyone know how can I go about adding required portions? It says that I must add the rating input fields to your comments template manually, but I really have no idea how.

    If anyone can help me, I would really appreciate it.
    Thank You very much.
    I am using the latest version.

    Hello Im here.

    Your right about this place, it is often like a ghost town. I am very surprised that for something as wideley used as wordpress the support forum is dead.

    Ive been thinking for weeks now that there must be another forum somewhere on the net where people go to discuss wordpress. We just need to find where it is.

    With regard to this plug in. Ive been playing with it myself. To get the code you need to copy this code below

    <?php echo dgrs_get_rating_fields(); ?>

    you need to open up your comments.php file either through wordpress theme editor or on your pc through a text editor. You need to paste the code into that file immediately AFTER this piece of code which is near the bottom of comments.php

    <p><input class="textbox" type="text" name="author" id="author" value="<?php echo $comment_author; ?>" size="22" tabindex="1" />
    <label for="author"><small>Name <?php if ($req) _e('(required)'); ?></small></label></p>

    <p><input class="textbox" type="text" name="email" id="email" value="<?php echo $comment_author_email; ?>" size="22" tabindex="2" />
    <label for="email"><small>Mail (hidden) <?php if ($req) _e('(required)'); ?></small></label></p>

    <p><input class="textbox" type="text" name="url" id="url" value="<?php echo $comment_author_url; ?>" size="22" tabindex="3" />
    <label for="url"><small>Your Website Address</small></label></p>

    <?php endif; ?>

    Once youve added it. Save comments.php and upload it into the plugin directory if you need to.

    then you can start playing with the review set up in the admin area under OPTIONS.

    Please keep me posted As id like to hear how you get on.

    If anyone reading this has sucessfully used this plugin could they please chip in here and give us some pointers.As I have the following question

    "As someone whose not really skilled in php coding its taken me a while to adapt a template and get your code in place. But I feel it will be well worth the effort in the end. So far Ive been working about 4 hours.

    My question - Is it possible to apply different rating scales to different product reviews ?

    My site will review products relating to kayak fishing. So I will be reviewing Kayaks, but also items like fishfinders - so a score based on stability may well be applicable for kayaks but not for a fishfinder.

    How can I apply diverse rating scales to different products ?

    Thanks again - Glenn"

    Glenn:

    I am trying to configure SB Review (http://www.sourcebench.com/2007/08/24/turn-your-wordpress-blog-into-a-powerful-review-site/). It's built off the DG Review plugin but has a few other features - install/setup is the same. Have not been able to get the functionality to show up when creating posts.

    Do you have notes on changes you made? Anything not in the documentation? We can't figure out what we're missing. I would also be happy to hear from anyone who has gotten this work.

    Thank you!!

    Lynn
