[resolved] [Plugin: Rating-Widget] Is there a widget? (11 posts)

    I like the rating functionality. However, I don't see a widget. I was expecting a widget in wordpress that would show the top rated posts.

    Any plans for this?

    Great to hear. This is the only ratings plugin I can get to work with W3 total cache.

    But the last update has now hidden ratings from the loope. They still show up under single post.

    I'm sorry, but I don't understand you. May you please give some more details.

    I think I figured it out.

    Because I am using 2 pages/templates to split my blog index by category, I had to enable the "Page" rating to see it in by index/loop.

    But I do notice that it is not respecting my advanced font color which is #CCCCCC for all 4 widget setting tabs.
    Chek it out here.

    Further is there a php function I could just insert into my 2 blog templates so that the ratings don't show up on other pages?

    Thanks,
    Darcy

    Dear Darcy,

    1. I've just uploaded our new release which include Top Rated Widget as I promised (check it out): http://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/rating-widget.1.1.5.zip

    2. I'll check the color problem, it's probably some bug. I'll send you a notification when it will be solved.

    Regards,
    Vova

    About the color... something is wrong on your side. Did you massed up with the WP code? because somehow you show a post where it suppose to be a page.

    Anyway, you can hack this by searching the next string:
    "pages" => array("type" => "page"),
    and replacing it with:
    "pages" => array("type" => "front-post"),

    BUT THIS IS A HACK, SOMETHING IS WRONG ON YOUR WP.

    Hope it helped,
    Vova

    Great to see the widget. Will there be any configurations for it? font color, etc.

    I do see 2 "info"icons in my widget.

    As to what you are seeing with my site, yes its kind of a hack. Basically I have a blog that I want split into 2 separate pages. 1 for news and 1 for photos. I did this with a child theme and custom template that are assigned to a page each.

    I will live with the color for now. I don't want to hack your plugin as I believe there will be more updates to come.

    Great plugin by the way!

    1. Off course there will be configurations!
    2. I thought that the "info" icons should be in the widget, so users can see the rating explicit report right from it, but if the users says otherwise - who am I to argue with it :) So as for your request it was removed!

    This works fairly well. It would be nice if there were an option to show "#/5" rather than the stars. Many themes like mine have rather narrow widgets and when each post takes 2-3 lines the formatting isn't great.

    It may also be wise to have a setting like: only show posts that have x or more votes.

    What I am finding is an unpopular post has only 1 vote of 5/5 and it stays in the top of the widget, even though others have more votes.

    Gotta say, this thing works great for such a new plugin and I have it working with MU install, W3 Total Cache including CDN Caching. Couldn't get any others to work with my configuration. This thing just works. Great job!
