Works great, great support!
By ,

I purchased the standard version after trying the free version to make sure it worked for my needs. I had a slight issue with the upgrade but got a response from the developer within a few hours. The issue was easily fixed with developer's help. Great plugin, great support.

Works perfectly
By , for WP 3.8

I have installed this plug-in on my website with forum (made with bbpress) which also has a blog. It works perfectly, I've upgrade to premium and had some issues. But the author helped me inmediatly, and made it work.

You can valorate blog posts, pages and forum users with the free version. You can valorate user's comments and see the reports with the premium version.

It's easy to use and the author helps you if you have a problem, even if you haven't bought the premium version. He helped me with the installation.

Very functional - Great support
By ,

This is an incredibly intuitive and functional rating plugin with an array of features and administrative options that's impressive.

And, the support is absolutely excellent!

Just wanted to add a note of caution: I don't think these rating plugins are that good on shared servers. On my site on a shared server, it nearly tripled the page load time. And as a widget, it didn't always show up without a refresh. On my site that's run on VPS, it's much smoother and I love it.

Çok güzel. Keşke premium sürümündekiler birazda ücretsizde olsa (i) gibi

Not working!
By , for WP 3.6

I tried this plugin into my wp-based site but no success. I see the plugin is correctly installed on my admin/dashboard page but no rating/review on the post page. I even tired to add it manually using function rw_the_post_rating, but still not working. Support did not accordingly respond! I think the first thing publishing a plugin needs is to specify an appropriate usage instruction in the installation tab. For this plugin, this tab has almost no content.

Best rating plugin I found
By , for WP 3.7

The plugin is very easy to setup and provides many very nice features such as multi-language, thumb & star rating, excellent customization, BuddyPress support etc. I started with the free version and upgraded to the premium version. The extra bonus is a great personal and individual support. The development seems to be very customer feedback driven. Thumbs up!

Rating-Widget is in my eyes the best rating plugin out there. Everyone thinking about a rating plugin on his site should give it a try.

Best and Beautiful Stars Rating Plug-In I found!
By , for WP 3.5.1

What can I say? I just enjoy tremendously looking at my site because of my beautiful dynamic looking Green Stars from Rating-Widget.

The best there is anywhere else! World-Class willing support and very trustworthy. I am amazed how the creator of the plug-in helped me set the ratings up in my site when I am a newbie with WordPress.

I wish them many, many sales in the near future!
