GD Star Rating
GD Star Documentation is Cumbersome (2 posts)

    Has anyone else tried to use certain aspects of this plugin, but still failed after trying to follow the documentation over at gstarraring.com?

    I don't mind that there's no free support. To be honest, if the plugin is going to be a major part of my website, I prefer to pay for support (or the plugin itself) to be able to get my questions answered in a timely manner.

    The problem I have is...if the documentation is so confusing that I cannot get even the more simpler things going by following it, why would I ever choose to pay money to the individual who wrote the documentation for support. (no offense meant, just an honest observation)

    I really think this plugin is the best rating plugin out there, but I think certain other rating plugins that aren't as developed and "pretty" are much simpler to understand and implement.

    I'm quite sure with enough time and energy I could figure it all out, but at some point you just gotta put a price on your time and move on. Sorry, just venting...

    LOL I feel ya. I spent a couple hours trying to figure it out - got a little ways, then said the hell with it. I'll admit it's probably the best ratings plugins, but holy jeez is it ever complicated. You need a Ph.D just to understand it!

    Having said all that, I re-enabled the plugin again because no other plugin seems to do what I want. It's a dilemma, I guess. We'll just have to put in the time in learning it. I read via inside the plugin that the developer is rewriting it or updating it for 2.0 soon - perhaps that will clear things documentation up :S
