Does what it says. I tried 3 other Plugins to get my CPT ratings, but due to heavy customization in the comments template (and form) none of them worked. This one integrates without any problems. The only thing I'd like to see is an option to hide or customize the average rating text - for now it's not possible to only show the average number without additional text. Hiding all text with CSS doesn't work too, because the text is in plain HTML without a class. I would like to have it like this: <div class="stars-avg-rating"> <span class="rating-stars">...</span> <span class="rating-text">3.5 based on 2 reviews</span> </div> Would enable more options for styling.

Doesn't work with custom post types, the shortcode displays only 5 "missing icons" most probably stars or whatever, just a rectangle with a hover effect
