Rating-Widget: Star Review System
[resolved] Front page ratings not showing using Gamepress Theme (5 posts)

    Hello!

    I'm really liking this new rating plugin and it works pretty much flawlessly. The only issue I'm having is with the ratings not appearing on the front page of my website, themasterfoundry.com

    My front page is set as a blog, and I'm using excerpts as my front page display. It's a particular setting located in my theme's options.

    Is there anyway I could have the stars appear above or below or anywhere around my excerpts on the front page? Changing the plugin's options ragarding the excerpt feature doesn't seem to change anything.

    Thank you in advance for your time!

    Hey @Wizd3m, make sure your excerpts displayed by using the_excerpt() to show excerpts on the front page. Please let me know if it worked.

    Hello Vova, thank you for answering.

    I would very much like to give your suggestion a try, but I'm new to CSS (I assume it's a CSS edit you're talking about) and am not entirely sure what to do with the_excerpt() Could you maybe guide me?

    If it helps, the theme i'm using has a section in the post editor where an excerpt can be included for each post under the custom title "game review". I have tried this, but again only the words appear, no star ratings on front page.

    The theme I'm using also has 3 distinct ways of displaying posts on the front page, namely: the full post (stars appear with this one), a large thumbnail excerpt (no stars on front page), and the small thmubnail excerpt (this is the one I'm using and no stars appear).

    I tried looking at the following links regarding what you suggested to try and understand it better, and I THINK i'm starting to, but I'm still not sure where or how to make this edit safely. Also, I have a "custom CSS" plugin installed, as I assume that's needed.

    So yea, could you please be more specific?

    Oh, sorry, forgot to include the links I meantioned:
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/the_excerpt
    http://codex.wordpress.org/The_Loop

    Again, I undertand what they are meant to do, I'm just not sure what the actual code should be and where I should use it.

    It's not a part of the CSS, it's part of you WordPress theme. You need to make sure that your theme is using the_exceprt() method to output/display the excerpts.

    Also feel free to contact me directly via email at [vova AT rating-widget DOT com] because it requires further investigation of your theme and probably not relevant for other readers.
