    Hi travelgeeky, thank you for using YASR!

    It should be because your theme on archive.php use “the_excerpt()” instead of “the_content()“.

    Unfortunatelly that theme isn’t free so I can’t test it.



    So if the user chooses Excerpts, as some 90% of sites use, then the ratings will only show up on the post itself? That’s odd, and unfortunately not what I paid for. Sorry I didn’t scan the Forum first. Other than that (which I feel is pretty basic to a rating plugin, the rest is pretty straightforward.

    Hi Bob, thank you for using Yasr!

    You’re maybe misunderstanding the_excerpt as in function with the “Read More” tag.

    Almost all themes out there in their file use the function “the_content()”, and then the user can add, for example, the read more tag in their post or page.

    Some theme use instead “the_excerpt“. This function should never be used in the index page cause don’t allow the final user use the “Read More” tag.
    (honestly, in the past I’ve has a few of users that has this “problem”)

    Hovewer, if you bought some product from the official site, you can email me simply by replying on the purchase receipt, I’ll be glad to help you 🙂

    Hi, I think that Yasr is really a nice plugin to rate articles. However I have some problem to display the rating on the front page. I wonder if it is possible to show the stars instead of “[Total: 0 Average: 0/5]” and if it possible to show them also if I leave the rating position at the end of the articles.

    Hi LMalanotteno, thank you for using Yasr!

    I guess that in the yasr settins you’ve selected “yes” at this question:

    “Show “Visitor Votes” in Archive Page?”

    If it still doesn’t appear, can you please post a link to your site?

    It is because yasr is at the bottom so after the “Continue Reading”

    If you wish, you can insert this into your thene to make your shortcode works

    <?php echo do_shortcode('[yasr_visitor_votes size="medium"]'); ?>
