Has anyone else tried to use certain aspects of this plugin, but still failed after trying to follow the documentation over at gstarraring.com?
I don’t mind that there’s no free support. To be honest, if the plugin is going to be a major part of my website, I prefer to pay for support (or the plugin itself) to be able to get my questions answered in a timely manner.
The problem I have is…if the documentation is so confusing that I cannot get even the more simpler things going by following it, why would I ever choose to pay money to the individual who wrote the documentation for support. (no offense meant, just an honest observation)
I really think this plugin is the best rating plugin out there, but I think certain other rating plugins that aren’t as developed and “pretty” are much simpler to understand and implement.
I’m quite sure with enough time and energy I could figure it all out, but at some point you just gotta put a price on your time and move on. Sorry, just venting…
LOL I feel ya. I spent a couple hours trying to figure it out – got a little ways, then said the hell with it. I’ll admit it’s probably the best ratings plugins, but holy jeez is it ever complicated. You need a Ph.D just to understand it!
Having said all that, I re-enabled the plugin again because no other plugin seems to do what I want. It’s a dilemma, I guess. We’ll just have to put in the time in learning it. I read via inside the plugin that the developer is rewriting it or updating it for 2.0 soon – perhaps that will clear things documentation up :S
