I noticed that (probably after the latest plugin update) it conflicts with shortcodes.
If there are any shortcodes used in a page (eg.
[caption] or any custom shortcodes) and if I insert[ratings]` to the page, then on web there is some text after the ratings-stars.
Looks like it takes first few words from the beginning of the article and duplicates them below stars.
If the page has only
[ratings]in the code, the page displays normally.
If the page does not have
[ratings], only other shortcodes, it displays normally as well.
Weird text below stars (scroll to the bottom of the article):
No weird text (I removed any shortcodes except ratings):
What could that be?
All my articles now look weird because of this 🙁
I am having this same issue with a site right now. It’s a custom theme with a lot of different shortcode in it – not sure if that matters or not but as Expana said; if [ratings] is the only shortcode used then it is fine but if you use any other shortcode it results in the blog content/page content to be repeated after the rating.
Just updated to WP 3.4 as well as a few other plugin updates.
Thanks for sharing, so it’s not only me! 🙂
I noticed that if I have only
[caption]in the text, then ratings display normally.
I’m thinking about using another plugin for ratings. If you are going to use another one, please share which one you chosen.
Ok, guys, I think I found the reason for that behaviour!
I looked at the generated page source and at
In the file there is a line:
<meta itemprop="description" content="'.$post_excerpt.'">
This gave me a clue about the reason – shortcodes insert into that post_excert!
I opened a post in wordpress admin and entered a plain text into “Excerp” text area. Saved, and this fixed that bug!
I tried it only with 1 post, will do it with others.
Try it, hopefully it works for you!
(I almost uninstalled it! Just decided to give it a last try :-D)
