    Hello,

    First of all great plugin. One thing that’s missing is displaying the results on the same existing stars rather than separate stars at the top. I see a user had started a thread asking for this feature and you said it’s in the works. This is the thread: https://wordpress.org/support/topic/rich-snnipet-and-color-existing-rate/

    Could we expect it in the future? This feature would essential make this plugin the best there is.

    Thanks again.

    Hi there,
    I somehow forgot to implement this feature. Thanks for informing me. I’ll have a look and see whether I’ll make a quick update or it will be a part of the version I’m currently developing (this will be a big update with many new features and rewritten code).

    I decided to make a quick update. In version 1.1.5 which I just released you can enable “Color the stars in rating widget according to the rating”. Then the results will be displayed on the same existing stars. Please try it out and let me know if you have any questions.

    If you want to change the color of stars that show rating you can use the following snippet in your child theme’s style.css:

    
    .rating-stars ul > li.star.widget-stars-highlight > i.fa {
      color: red; /*Insert color here*/
    }
    

    Hello,

    Thanks for the quick update. I did try selecting the option “Color the stars in rating widget according to the rating”. But it didn’t make any difference. The stars still displayed as grey (#ccc) on page load. Shouldn’t it be all yellow if the average rating is 5? Please let me know your thoughts.

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    you’re right. There was a bug and the feature only worked if results widget was enabled or inserted with the shortcode. I released a quick fix in version 1.1.6. Now it should work. Please try it out. Do clear the cache after updating the plugn.

    Perfect. Thanks for the prompt responses and updates. Now all you have to do is advertise and this plugin will shine like a diamond. Thumbs up. 🙂

    One quick suggestion: When a user click on a star to rate, it would be nice if the stars revert to show the average rating after a 2-3 sec time delay. As of now, it stays on with the user rating with the thank you message.

    Thanks! 🙂 I’ll consider including this in the next version. Hopefully it will be released by December 🙂
