A couple of feature requests. (27 posts)

    First off I want to let you know that this plugin is coming along nicely. The dev pace is incredible.
    Well done!

    Here are a couple of features I think would make great additions to what WP Customer Reviews can already do.
    Option to display reviewer gravatars ā€“ This is already being done by the plug in its backend.

    Location field ā€“ It would be great if there was an option to include where someone is from. For example it could like: Vince M, Los Vegas
    Last but not least (as others have mentioned) some sort of sidebar widget
    Iā€™d be happy to help with testing so feel free to let me know.

    Keep up the great work!

    Gravatars - This is on the todo list.. Just didn't get around to it yet. I'll try to include in the next release along with a couple of minor CSS issues I noticed with some themes and "table borders".

    Location would be a good field to add with an option for asking/requiring/displaying.

    Sidebar widget.. good idea.. A bit overloaded with other (paying) work right now, but it's definitely on the todo list also :)

    Keep up the good suggestions and thank you!

    Hi!

    This is such a great plugin :)

    If you are thinking of making it even more awesome, please, include option for our customers to upload an 'appreciation photo'.

    Thanks :)

    We'll add it to the list. Image uploads are a small nightmare, but I think we can make them work somewhat decent. I'll plan it for a future update. Thanks for the suggestion.

    Or to link to item in our inventory that they've purchased which will then show a featured image or post thumbnail.

    Thanks for the great plugin!

    Do you plan to add possibility for unlimited number of review pages?

    It would be great.

    Location can be added with custom fields now. I totally forgot to do the gravatars on the front end, but I will try to sneak that into 2.0.1.

    As always, remember to rate the plugin 5 stars on the directory, and be sure to mark that it worked for you and your wordpress version. Donations are always welcome to encourage future development and just keep my happy in general.

    2.0.0 will hit the servers in a few minutes. I think you will be pleasantly surprised at the multiple page implementation, which also paved the way to add in hProduct reviews, since thats the only review microformat that makes sense for using multiple pages.

    Check it out and let me know what you think.

    Only one word - wonderful!

    (somebody said that date should be optional and I would like that too, since I am uploading reviews from another site and all that)

    The date is entered automatically and is required for the microformat.. Not really a way around that.. but the good news is that the date can be edited to whatever you want via admin. Just view the review and click on the date to edit. Easy as that!

    Avi -- still working on the gravatar inclusion. I am trying to get rid of all of the remaining theme issues (mostly paid themes - go figure) and then will work on adding requested features.

    Thanks!

    Is there currently the ability to add the reviews to posts? I installed this a few days ago and can't see that there is but I would really love for it to be available. I use posts to display products from my merchants so currently I am unable to use the plugin.

    We have added the ability to use it with posts a couple of days ago. Try out the latest version.

    Once again thank you for this sweet plugin.

    I also have a feature suggestion, what about adding an option for an editor's review?
    With the ability of adjusting the ratio by which the editor's and customers' reviews are weighted in to produce the final aggregate value?

    Good suggestion. We'll add it to the todo list.

    I love this plug in! Each time it just gets better and better!

    Just wondering, is it possible to be able move the reviews? For example, I have a great review but because it came in first it's all the way at the bottom. I'd like more control over placement. Any possibilities of this happening?

    The easiest way of doing this is to change the date on the review. We'll add featured reviews to the "todo" list also.

    If I not mistaken, change the date does not change the order. Once approved, the order of display seems to be fixed. I just tried to change a date. When I update the page, the reviews stay in the same spot (with the new date). I assume there is another 'under the covers' field which determined the order of display.

    As a short term fix you could create a new review (a copy of the original) and delete the original. That would move it to the top. You could even then make the date match the original. I just tried it- this will work just fine.

    Yes I believe you are correct. It is sorting by the ID probably and not the date. This will be fixed in the next release so that sorting by date descending would be the default.

    Hey bompus, I'm glad you liked my other suggestion.

    Regarding the sorting, what about adding a "Was this review helpful?" line at the bottom of each one featuring Yes No buttons?
    Then they could be sorted primarily by helpfulness (the positives) then by date then the unhelpful ones (negatives).

    If it sounds too much of a hassle, no worries, this was just an idea.
    We are all grateful for the time you have devoted for the plugin already while proving it for free as well.

    If you guys make an option to hide the ratings and show the name, company & website under and to the right of the review, this will be become the best testimonial plugin for wordpress today. For the moment you can just make the ratings optional.

    hey!

    I love the plugin but was wondering if it's possible to show the overall rating? thanks!

    Best testimonial plugin available by far, and development is very active. I would also love to see a sidebar widget for random rotation of reviews.

    Keep up the great work, and i encourage donations for anyone that uses the plugin. This could easily be made a premium plugin with its functionality and concepts. Rerward the good and active developers :)
