Support » Plugin: Rating-Widget: Star Review System » Pro Version the only useful option

  • I originally reviewed this as 1 star because I was annoyed that the only way to actually see any ratings is to buy the pro version.

    I am still annoyed because it is a brilliant programme – I would award the programme 5 stars for what it is. However, I have given it 3 stars because even on the free version I would have expected a minimal way to view whether you have received any reviews. This doesn’t happen at all. If you want to see if someone has added a review then you have to visit each and every page/post.

    The pro version is way too costly for our charity and so we have moved elsewhere.

    Note to the developer:
    Is it possible to allow a small section that simply says, “You have received a review on this page”.

    We could then review the page to see the responses. It wouldn’t affect the stats element of your pro version.

    Hi @cregy, we do our best to always improve the ratings and trying to provide the best features to our users, most of them for free. Can you please explain why do you feel that the free version is useless?

    To be honest I responded out of annoyance and maybe should have contacted you first. We loaded the ratings plugin up to a site and then found you can’t actually review any statistics without the pro version. If someone responds to a post the only way to see that response was to visit the actual page/post.

    I wish I could retract the above because it is actually a good plugin and works well unless of course you want to view some sort of stats.

    Thanks for contacting me.

    Hey Rich, that’s o.k 🙂 No worries. If you’ll check the main plugin page:
    I’ve described exactly all the features of every package. It says that “Advanced Ratings’ Analytics” is only included in the Premium version. We were never hiding this nor trying to mislead someone.

    Actually you CAN modify the rating and your review, and I would really appreciate if you’ll do that. Just go to:
    And modify your Rating/Review. Don’t forget to click the ‘Edit Post’ button to actually submit it.


    Btw. If you have any additional questions/issues/feedback, you are more than welcome to contact me directly on [vova AT rating-widget DOT com].

    It’s actually a very good idea to add some notifications regarding to rated pages. Just added it to our TODO’s list. Thanks!

    Actually you can get notifications… There is a Top Rated items widget with this plugin, for example, that you can place in your side bar and that gives notification of top rated items. There is also a recently rated items widget I think.
