Easy Review Builder for WordPress


This lightweight plugin allows you to easily insert attractive star-based review summaries into your blog by way of shortcodes. The ratings box scales for mobile displays. It supports multiple rating categories and an optional auto-calculated summary.

PHP5 Required.

The shortcode format is:

[easyreview argument=”value” …]

With Easy Review Builder you can quickly generate a classy looking summary box. It is flexible, with the ability for you to specify whatever review categories are important, such as “price”, or “graphics”, etc. You also provide some text to summarize your thoughts on each review point, along with your final rating.

An optional conclusion will average the ratings specified. You can provide a conclusion summary text as well.

I will be looking for a different plugin. I feel it does do what I says however I will not give five stars at all and will not recommend. I need something clean and dirty that easy and gets the job done. It would take to much time to generate a short-code by hand each time. I also would like to see automatic insert based on categories. Good plugin concept just not very user friendly and takes up to much of my time to implement. Author needs to improve this immensely as it's to much hassle to use it. Not user friendly at all. AGAIN I DO NOT RECOMMEND IF YOU WANT SOMETHING EASY THAT JUST WORKS WITHOUT THE HASSLE!
