Stupid implementation for ignorant siteowners

All I need is simple options to show a star rating in one line. Not a button, not a stupid “widget”, etc. The plugin is meant for completely clueless owners. The documentation on the site is full of selling PRO version. Deleted.

Works great, fast support

This free plugin does exactly what it says, and in a great way. After a 404 error I contacted support and even though I don’t have the paid version they helped me quickly to resolve the issue – which wasn’t their fault anyway.

Thanks!

Great and fast support!

Great and fast support of the Google Review team. Problem solved after weeks of looking myself for solutions. Thanks!
