Star Rating System for WordPress - the most beautiful & user-freindly Thumb & Star ratings for WordPress.
A great little plugin which I'm glad I installed. The support from Vova the developer is 2nd to none, he's very helpful.
Whilst a good plugin, in my eyes it's not perfect and here's why:
- to second SOHKat's comment, I'd like to be able to pay a one-off fee for the plugin as opposed to signing up for a subscription. I think this option should be incorporate.
- The rating are not done on a per-instance basis which means that there can be a few display issues especially when used with the top ratings widget.
- I'd like to see an option to have all files/stats hosted on my own server to have full control, but understand that as payment is only currently been taken by a monthly subscription this could be hard to implement.
- the ability to allow editors and above (or configurable) to view ratings analytics is currently not an option and think it should be.
I believe Vova and his team are continually updating this plugin and hope to see some good improvements in the future. I believe they are currently working on a feedback box that will allow visitors to submit feedback/comments along with their rating. This would be FANTASTIC!
Other than the minor niggles above, a brilliant plugin, highly recommended and would opt to go for pro...
Awesome plugin. Although there are some features to be desired, it does what it does perfectly.
Support is also very fast and spot on.
This plugin is great, you must to have!!!
I had an issue with the rating stars not showing up on one of my laptops running Chrome. It worked with other browsers, not Chrome. I tried everything including running my website on another computer running Chrome. It worked there. I was in the support blogs looking for answers when Vova Feldman came on a chat screen and asked to help. He stayed with me until he fully understood what was happening and told me he would have to have it run through the techs to get it resolved. I though, yeah, heard that song before.
Long story short, he responded within a short time with a fix, I applied it and now everything works great. If there were a way to give a + to the 5 stars, I would. Highly recommend this plugin, it works as stated and the support is outstanding.
It is very easy to configure, and supports many languages. The developer is willing to add your own rating icons to the plugin. You can't go wrong with this!
Great Support! Completely uncomplicated as well. I switched from GD Rating to this. Granted I don't get to see all the reports like I did with GD. But the less complications the better for me!
Only draw back is the pricing if you want to go pro. I'd rather make a one time payment as my site is very small and doesn't make much on advertising other then paying for itself. So I have limited funds to spend. Just a personal thing though, I get why they ask for $ for the pro.
Plugin works fine. And Vova was extremely helpful during the update to the pro-version, his responses came really quick. Thanks!
never have any issues and I hear as soon as one arises the support team is on it.
THis plugin is very nicly and useful plugin. very hpy.
thanks a lot of
