Star Rating for Reviews

Description

Star Rating for Reviews is a simple WordPress plugin that inserts pretty rating stars based on the score you assign using intuitive, inline [rating:] tags. It can also calculate and output overall ratings for you based on all previous scores you have assigned, useful for reviews that have multiple categories or an album review where each track is assigned a score.

This plugin supports storing rating data into your WordPress database. These data can then be retrieved by plugin functions to output a list of reviews, sortable by date, post title or rating scores. Random reviews function and single post function (to be used in WordPress loop) are also provided, see Usage section for detailed description of these functions.

FAQ

How can I list all reviews I have written on pages?

Use sr_listreviews() function. See functions documentation for more details.

Is it possible to output top reviews based on categories?

Not at this time due to the recent changes of WordPress database schema, I still need time to become familiar with the terms table.
