    Hi Bruxo
    That does sound like a CSS issue. Is there a link I can see of the problem, as it seems to be working on my test installs?

    I have the same issues with stars not showing after updating to v.2.0

    You can see here:

    If you look in the source code, the URL for star images appear like this:
    <img class=”nggv-star-loader” src=”” style=”display:none;” />

    Seems like __DIR__ is not replaced with the current plugin path.

    Thanks for the link, and even doing some of the debugging for me 🙂
    Turns out the PHP super global __DIR__ was only added in PHP 5.3. I have replaced it with more compatible code and pushed out release 2.0.1.

    Please let me know once you’ve updated if there are any more issues.

    Thanks for the quick fix, Shauno!

    I got the 2.0.1 and the stars work fine now.

    Hi Pgraz01

    I’m not sure I understand the question. It sounds like you want to change the look of the stars. Unfortunately there are no pre-set themes, and you would need to edit the CSS and images yourself.

    I hope that helps.

    PS. Next time please start you’re own thread for new questions.

    Yes! Thanks!
    I’ve changed the image and edit the css.
    now every thing is ok.

    I ve about the same problem with the last 2.0.1 release the stars are shown just only for gallery vote and not on the single images. The vote is enable for each image with unlimeted votes and for all users. I checked the source and all i can but didn’t find a reason for this.

    You can see it here

    Sounds like you haven’t added the tag to the gallery template. I should change the ‘Frequently Asked Questions’ to ‘Things Nobody Reads’…

    Thx for the quick answers,
    You right! i ve installed this plugin 2 months ago in another site and i forgot that passage.

    I have read the FAQ, put the tag, but after the last update I can not even see the stars .. As can be seen ( ) are seen numbers.
    They do not seem to load the css file! How can I do? thanks!

    I can’t replicate the problem in my test environments. I see the CSS isn’t being included in your site at all.
    What version of PHP, WP, NGG, and NGGV are you running, and I will try replicate your install

    it does not seem inclusive.

    Php: 5.3.18 (It is not clear! Might also be 5.2.17)



    Hi After upgrade to NextGen Voting Pro I don’t see stars for each photo

    Can you help me ?
