    Hi,

    I had the plugin deactivated for some time and then reactivated it after upgrading to WP 3.6.1. I have configured the stars iconset (1-5). When hovering over the rating, the image gets replaced with missing image icons. Looking at HTML source, Ajax tries to change the image to /wp-content/plugins/wp-postratings/images/stars/rating_1_on.gif. rating_2_on.gif and so on… But the image files present inside the stars folder is of name rating_half.gif, rating_off.gif etc.

    Why is it looking for improper image file? Please help.

    That depends on what type of ratings you use which you have choose in WP-Admin -> Ratings -> Ratings Options -> Ratings Image.

    If you use thumbs up/down ratings, it will use _1 and _2, if you use star ratings, then it will be on, off, etc

    Hi Chester,

    I have chosen stars_crystal and Max Rating is set to 5. I deactivated and activated again. But still didn’t work.

    I don’t see a problem, I just rated and it works fine. See this SS http://imgur.com/DOUJs2U

    Oh I don’t understand. Is it something to do with cache? I am using W3 Total Cache. Just re-opened my browser and cleared all cache and tried again. Still the same issue. I opened a completely different post and it worked… but I refreshed it and again it is not working. It looks like this: http://imgur.com/HdCjNsN

    Can you try checking different posts and refreshing. Just hovering over the stars should show up the problem.

    Hmm… probably something wrong at my end.

    Hey xsreality,
    It’s definitely not a problem on your end. It happened for me when testing your page too:

    Unfortunately I’m having the same problem on my site after installing w3total cache. Think it has something to do with minify, but haven’t yet figured out how to get it to work without entirely disabling minif..?..

    Rating doesn’t seem to save anymore either.

    Hi Wes,
    Yes, the problem is still not resolved. I checked my ratings data and there have been only 3 ratings in past few days. Usually I get 6-8 ratings everyday on various posts.

    It seems to work intermittently but more often than not it fails so it does seem to be cache issue. Maybe there is some js file that needs to be put in the Minify exception list? Lester, please help..

    I am getting a problem on xsreality site right now. I believe this is a caching issue. Anywhere to force expire all cache? Maybe for a start you can even disable caching to see if it works.

    The only way I can get the stars to work properly on my site is if I disable JS Minify in w3total cache:

    However, since I don’t want to do that I’ve created a semi-workaround by creating the new star images minify is requesting most often when I hover over them:

    rating_1_on.gif – rating_5_on.gif
    rating_1_off.gif – rating_5_off.gif
    rating_5_half.gif

    It’s definitely not ideal, but kinda works.

    I added postratings-js.js file to the Minify js ignore list as shown here: http://imgur.com/l1SAn0s Also, changed the Minify mode from ‘Auto’ to ‘Manual’ in W3TC general settings so that it will pick the manual settings.

    Now it seems the ratings are working fine on all posts even after refresh. Try this out Wes and let me know how it goes.

    By the way, this link seems to have a nice W3TC configuration tutorial. I haven’t tried it yet… will do it on my local config to see if it works.

    Hey XSReality,
    Thanks for the tip, but if you look at your source code minify doesn’t seem to minifying any of your .js files now – at least not on the above page. I tried setting mine to manual earlier and it did allow postratings to work, but my site slowed down because minify seemed to stop working on other JS files for me to. I also tried excluded all of the postratings js files like you did with postratings-js.js and that didn’t work at all. You probably don’t need it in there if you have the js minify settings set to manual – I didn’t and it still worked. But like I said, that seemed to stopped all js files from being minified.

    I’ll have to check out that link you sent me tomorrow…way past my bed time now..

    Best!

    Yes it seems in manual setting the JS and CSS files need to be added manually. I did that using Help wizard of the plugin and now as per PageSpeed there are only two files which are above-fold: 1 JS and 1 CSS. I haven’t added the postratings-js.js file and rating is working fine.

    Oh, cool! I’ll have to give that a try.

    I wish we could just exclude the the PostRatings JS like I have with other JS files rather than having to go through all of that, but I’ll take what I can get I guess. 🙂

    Thanks, XSreality!
