Ratings: clean, lightweight and easy
A Post/Page/Custom Post Type's rating is the average of all comment ratings. A user can leave a rating when commenting, and change that rating inline after leaving a comment (if logged-in or Cookie'd).
Don't be afraid to play around and extend the code: drop a
rate.css file in your theme directory and mine won't even load (by default, Rate stars are transparent with a white border, so you can use
background-color to set your stars' colors)!
<?php // in this version, you need to insert these functions into your theme for ratings to appear // you don't have to use the_rating(), the comment_rating() will work by itself, but the_rating() will not // for a Post, Page, or Custom Post Type (average of all comment ratings) the_rating(); // for a comment the_comment_rating(); ?>
