    Hi

    My client wants a review system just for reviewing his business not products. The plugin we are using at present is based on individual pages so whichever page the form is on it just shows the average/summary on that page for that page. What my client wants is to have the form on one page but show the reviews and the average/summary on that page and also on the home page.

    Whilst we can show the reviews on the home page we cannot show the laverage/summary.

    Can your plug in do this using the stars option?

    Hi Gary,

    Using our plugin, you can place your reviews on any page you want by using the [ultimate-reviews] shortcode.

    Thanks for your reply

    Yes I understand that the reviews can show on any page but can the summary show on any page also?

    Hi Gary,

    If you mean that you’d like to show just the summary (for all reviews or for a specific product), and not any actual reviews, then that isn’t currently an option. We do, however, think it make for a useful feature and thank you for the suggestion. We’ll look to see if we can add it in a future update.

    Hi

    We would like to show the summary and only 3-4 reviews on the home page from a form that is on another page showing all the reviews

    Hi Gary,

    First of all, in the Setting > Basic tab, please change the “Reviews Per Page” to 4. This will make it such that the maximum amount of reviews shown by default is 4. Then, on your homepage, you can simply use the [ultimate-reviews] shortcode.

    The next step is to hide all the reviews containers and just show the summary. You may do so with custom CSS. Every page has an ID given to it. You can view it by right-clicking your page and choosing “Inspect element”. The beginning of your page should look like so:

    <head> ... </head>
    <body class="page page-id-X">

    where X is the ID number of your specific page.

    If you go back into Setting > Basic under custom CSS, please write the following for each page you would like to have only the summary shown:

    .page-id-X .ewd-urp-review-div {display:none;}

    An example of it would be:

    .page-id-324 .ewd-urp-review-div {display:none;}

    Start with one page, and let us know if it works out properly for you too 🙂

    Best regards,

    That’s great. Thank you. I’ll give it a try

    I think we may be getting a bit confused. When I say summary I mean the average score shown in stars. This is what i am using at present http://www.podiatrystation.com/testimonials/ which shows the average score in stars at the top of all the reviews, but I want to show the average score on the home page which isn’t possible with the existing plug in.
    Does your plug in show the average score and if so can I show that only on the home page but show all the reviews on the Testimonials page?

    Hi Gary,

    As of now, our summary may only be of two types: limited or full summary. The limited summary only contains the average rating in numbers, and the number of ratings. The full summary contains the average rating in numbers, the number of ratings as well as a bar chart with the division of ratings. Unfortunately, we do not provide a limited summary with stars, but we do appreciate this idea, and would likely consider it for a future update! 🙂

    As of what we have replied earlier, it might have been quite overwhelming. Let us break it down for you. Since we do not provide a widget to only show the summary, the only way to only display the summary on the homepage would be to use the shortcode to display the summary and the reviews, but to hide the reviews by custom CSS.

    Steps to show average score only on homepage, and show all reviews on testimonials:

    1) On your Homepage and on your Testimonials Page, put the following shortcode: [ultimate-reviews]

    2) Under Premium > Summary Statistics set whether you want it Full or Limited.

    3) Under Basic > Custom CSS, put the following code:

    /*Hides reviews on homepage but shows summary*/
    .page-id-2 .ewd-urp-review-div {display:none;}

    We hope that it is clearer for you. Let us know if that works out and if you need additional help in setting up your plugin! 🙂

    Best regards,

    That’s really great thank you. Yes it’s all quite clear.

    I presume that I need the Premium version to achieve my aim?

    Would it be possible to allow me temporary access to the Premium version before I make the commitment to buy as I am doing this for a client who is very particular and need to get it 100% right before I can pass on any charge to him

    Thanks again
