Support » Plugin: GD Star Rating » Multi Set Rating to one Custom Post Type Template

  • I have created a multi rating set of and it works great if you use it with the shortcode on a custom post type.

    What I am having trouble doing is to displaying this multi rating set to the single-cpt.php of ONLY one custom post type.

    Hopefully somebody have figured that out.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated as I am stuck for days with this. Is it actually possible?

    Thank you in advance!

  • you can do this with conditional tags.
    assuming your CPT is “book” use this:

    if (is_singular( 'book' ) {
      // display your rating function here

    Thank you gerald!

    This is what I am actually looking for.
    The function, all of them failed…

    Can you please provide a sample?

    Thank you so much for trying to help.

    which template are you editing?

    insert this below the_content();:

    if (is_singular( 'book' ) {
    wp_gdsr_render_multi(, 12, false, 0, 'oxygen', 20, 'oxygen_gif', 'oxygen', 20, 'oxygen_gif');

    the rating box should appear below your post on the single.php view.
    assuming you posted in a custom post type named “book”
    you can also create a page called single-book.php and use this code:

    wp_gdsr_render_multi(, 12, false, 0, 'oxygen', 20, 'oxygen_gif', 'oxygen', 20, 'oxygen_gif');

    thank you so much gerald. I will try that. I thought I have ended in this function before in my research but there was no documentation for this. Now that you have pointed it again I will look in the source of the plugin to configure it. Hopefully everything will be ok.

    Thank you again!

    don`t waste too much time with investigation in the plugin source. this plugin is really complexe and documentation is a joke.

    what you`re trying to achieve is all based on template hirarchy and/or conditional tags thus related to wordpress theme development.

    this will get you going:

    I know this is unrelated guys but I started playing with this plugin. I think I have it working the way I want. As stated above the documentation is sparse. Can you tell me what the Multi “sets” are used for? I have multi-rating turned on but I have not created any sets. I wasn’t sure how to use them.

    Is it so more then one person at the site level can review something?

    multi sets are used if you want to record several factors with one voting.
