Support » Plugin: Yasr - Yet Another Stars Rating » Rating in description

  • Resolved 0fux


    Hi, in my website, the rating of every post is included in the description meta property (<meta property=”og:description”) and this is not wanted. How can I avoid this?

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    Mh, pretty strange…Is that generated from YOAST?

    I want try to reproduce it

    Yes meta tags are generated by YOAST

    Any news about this? It’s very annoying!

    I can’t reproduce it, btw, try to update to last version

    I have WP 5.0.2. What version do you have? Updated Yasr to 1.8.4 and I still see the rating in <meta property=”og:description”>
    Check it here

    Very annoying problem.

    With other star rating modules I don’t have this problem!!!

    NOTE: When the post hasn’t any votes yet nothing is desplayed in description meta-tag .

    This is really really strange: I’m trying to reproduce it, but I’m not able to do it:

    what other plugins are you using?

    I have to tell you that I have experimented further and saw that kk star rating is also behaving as yours (showing in description metatag) but Multi rating is working properly (not showing in description metatag).

    I’m using the following plugins:

    Anti-spam 5.3
    AutoConvert Greeklish Permalinks 1.3.8
    Insert Headers and Footers 1.4.3
    Video Thumbnails 2.12.3
    Yet Another Stars Rating 1.8.4
    Yoast SEO 9.3

    I wanted also to thank you for your time and attention…
    I’m completely new to wordpress (coming from the drupal world) and this problem is a big dissapointment to me (was expecting that wordpress would work smoothly and easily)

    Just a question:

    I got this now on meta description:

    <meta property=”og:description” content=”Αστεία & Περίεργα” />

    I used google transled and this mean “Funny & Strange” that seems the title of your site…
    There is no rating

    You are right but you just visited the home page, which anyway has no rating.
    If you visit this page which includes star rating:

    you will see <meta property=”og:description” content=”Πόσο γρήγορα μπορείς να ξεδιαλέξεις τις άγουρες ντομάτες; [Total: 1    Average: 3/5] You've already voted this article with 3.0″ />

    which includes a huge part of the rating. I have rated this article, so please rate it yourself and maybe you will see other content. Also fyi I’m not using any cache to that page at the moment…
    I checked this both as logged in and as not logged in user…

    Ok, I was in homepage, still looking into it to understand why this happens

    Hi, I’m in parallel in discussion with yoast maintainers about this problem. You can follow that discussion here:

    They requested some screenshots of the settings, which I already took but I don’t know how to upload them here.

    If you get my settings maybe you can replicate the problem more easily!

    You can upload the screenshoot in an imagehost like this one

    Here are the links requested from YOAST maintainer. Hope would be helpful to you too

    Here are the links to the screenshots:

    I see you’ve found a solution with the amazing yoast support 🙂
    It was a very interesting reading.

    Mark this as resolved,

    Really dudo?
    You consider this as resolved?
    This has a major design flow or let’s say is a really bad design if I don’t consider it a bug…

    According to YOAST, your plugin adds the rating in the content, something that makes content and rating then indifferentiable. In my opinion this is not a healty design. The rating should be presented as a separate entity.

    Even the suggestions from YOAST are not able to solve my problem, as the text in the content is not always long enough to fill up the available meta description length pushing your rating out of it…
