I'm using GD Star Rating 1.0.8 on WP 2.6.2. Out of the box the plugin works great but I cannot get the rating block to appear in posts when I turn off automatic rendering. The short code does not render the block, the post just shows the plain text.
I've used [ starrater ] [STARRATER] [STARRATINGBLOCK] , all of the short codes you have in the guide. I'm not sure what I'm missing here. All I did was turn off all the 'Auto Insert Rating Code'. I only want rating for certain posts.
Is there some special combination of admin settings to get this working that I'm missing? Does something else need to be enabled to get short code rendering working?
