    Hi there,

    first of all thanks for all your work! I chose this great plugin because I see that so many people are using it, and therefore I hope it will be supported in the future.

    One thing: each time I make a change in the “rating settings”, my template settings are lost. Is this a bug ?

    thanks again!

    If you change the ratings type, the template will be wiped because there are different type of ratings for different templates

    Hi Lester,
    Thanks a lot for your quick reply!
    I understand what you are saying. Does that mean that the ratings database would be wiped also when changing the ratings type? Say I change rating type A to type B. Will the rating data of A still be there when I switch back?

    Ok thank you again Lester.
    I guess it happens very easily if something needs to be adjusted in the images or even by accident that the rating type is changed,it could even happen by accident. If there are thouthands of ratings lost only by pressing the wrong button, wouldn’t it be better to install at least a warning popup before wiping the data?

    Wiping the data? It is only the rating template that is replace with the default one. The data are not touched at all.
