Works just as described - and has excellent support
By , for WP 3.8

In a nutshell: works!

And it comes with excellent support. We purchased the premium version (which we think is a square deal for the effort behind it) for our BuddyPress non-profit community site, and ran into some minor issues in turning from the free to the pro version.

Replay came very quickly after sending a help request, and it was easily solved by the maker of the plugin, plus some extra tweaks for us.

Summary: great plugin, both code and support could not be better.

And no, we are not in any way affiliated, just happy customers :-)

Poorly coded,ruined website
By , for WP 3.8

I rarely give poor ratings but this plugin is not good at all.

I checked this plugin and found that this slows down the website and then I decide to remove it but alas! it ruined the website after removing it,even tried to restore it so that website returns to normalcy which yielded no positive results.

Pops on SERP
By , for WP 3.8

The rich snippets version has great potential to enhance authority on SERP.
The implementation is simple and seamless, instructions are clear.
Congratulations on a great plugin!

No recomendable
By , for WP 3.8

No recomiendo el uso de este plugin!
Primero: No posee traducción a otros idiomas, sólo se traducen las etiquetas de cada nivel de calificación. Todo el plugin está en inglés.
Segundo: No se guardan los cambios. Tras varios intentos, las configuraciones personalizadas no las acepta.
Tercero: Una vez instalado el plugin se debe activar enviando los datos de cuenta que se completan en la configuración del plugin. Si no se activa no funciona.
Cuarto: Gran cantidad de enlaces entrantes con publicidad del plugin y widget hacia las redes sociales del plugin se muestran en la administración.
Quinto: Demasiadas consultas a la BD.
Sexto: Consume muchos recursos de WP.
Nota: No estoy calificando mal el plugin, sólo comento lo que me parece y respeto la opinión de los demás. Gracias.

Awesome Support, VERY HELPFUL
By , for WP 3.7.1

Fully compatible with WP 3.7.1 and the newest BBPRESS, support groups are incredibly thoughtful and knowledgeable, SuperB plugin with extra features. If you pay for the PRO version would never be regret. 5 Stars for the rate-widget Team.

Works great, great support!

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.
