  • I would like to use this widget, but it doesn’t work. Options that are changed are not saved, and the like/dislike buttons are not displayed for posts.

    Can you post the site url so we can check it?

    I had installed it before it was approved for WordPress v3.1, so I uninstalled it. Now it is approved for 3.1, so I installed it again, but the behavior is the same. When I change a setting, there is an error on the page and the change is not saved.

    The url is http:\\thebigfootclub.com\bigfootclub\. I will reactivate the rating widget for you to see, but nothing is being displayed on the pages.

    I’ve checked the URL but it seems to be disabled. One thing that I can think of that might cause your problem is:

    Where are my ratings?
    Check your theme’s footer.php calls wp_footer. The rating javascript is loaded on this action.

    Fantastic plugin! Question: Is there a way to hide rating/vote count totals while maintaining all other functionality?

    For newer sites still building traffic, admins may want people to vote but not be able to see that only a handful of others have been rating/visiting the site. Once the totals rise, the count view could be re-enabled….

    Many thanks.

    There is an option, but you’ll need to modify the main widget file (rating-widget.php). Check out showInfo parameter of the rating widget options: http://rating-widget.com/rating-widget-for-developers/#rw_api_options

    Tried for hours to follow your directions and find the code that needed modification, making multiple edits and testing repeatedly, to no avail. I’m hoping you’ll forgive a total non-pro (not a coder, but can do light tinkering with guidance) who’s trying hard to figure things out, and provide more specific info as to what needs to be changed?

    1. Open rating-widget.php
    2. Search for: ?>});
    3. Replace it with: ?>}, {showInfo: false});
    4. You are done!

    You are correct – there is no reference to rating-widget in the footer. How do I amend this?

    Also, I noticed that the string you referred to in the previous reply: ?>}); was not in the rating-widget.php file loaded onto my blog. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling again, to be sure that I had the most current version, but it is still not there.

    I like your rating widget better than other options and would like to get it to work. Can you offer any other suggestions?

    I think the search & replace instructions were for me. Did it in a snap, saved rating-widget.php, created a new post, logged out, cleared my browser cache and cookies, exited out and checked to see if that did the trick.

    No luck! Vote totals still show up. But svovaf, I truly appreciated the quick response and am eager to try again.

    Still hoping for further guidance on hiding the vote count since

    1. Open rating-widget.php
    2. Search for: ?>});
    3. Replace it with: ?>}, {showInfo: false});
    4. You are done!

    didn’t work. Happy to donate a little something to you to make it worth your time….
