Most easy to use Ratings Plugin I've seen so far. The customization is a little limited but nothing the great support can't fix!

Very Supportive System. Highly Customizable.
By , for WP 3.5

I would have given this 5 stars were it not for the reason there is not even a basic way of viewing your stats/ratings reports without upgrading to pro.

As this is one of the main reasons most people download a rating widget (to view their feedback and stats) it may be beneficial to develop a very basic report system for the standard version (maybe a list of your blog posts with a positive/negative percentage next to it) then you have to upgrade to pro to go into more detail (like how many star ratings, users for each post).

That being said Rating-Widget do make it clear from the offset that this enhancement is only available in premium.

The system itself is highly customizable with colour, font, images and text as well as alignment.

The support system is amazingly quick and helpful, whether you are communicating via twitter, facebook or the support quick chat - they are also very kind and understanding to those of us without as much technical knowledge of our sites than others.

Even though the price is a bit of a factor, I will still be upgrading to premium so as to gain the ratings reports as I feel the rest of this widget is worth the price - let alone the support system you gain.

Pro Version the only useful option
By , for WP 3.4.2

I originally reviewed this as 1 star because I was annoyed that the only way to actually see any ratings is to buy the pro version.

I am still annoyed because it is a brilliant programme - I would award the programme 5 stars for what it is. However, I have given it 3 stars because even on the free version I would have expected a minimal way to view whether you have received any reviews. This doesn't happen at all. If you want to see if someone has added a review then you have to visit each and every page/post.

The pro version is way too costly for our charity and so we have moved elsewhere.

Note to the developer:
Is it possible to allow a small section that simply says, "You have received a review on this page".

We could then review the page to see the responses. It wouldn't affect the stats element of your pro version.
