Edit: Thank you for your immediate response. Your plugin has a beautiful design. I also liked that star ratings can be brought up on the side menu for a quick evaluation.
I have not re-tested it due to limited time and I have submitted my project yesterday to the client. However, seeing your work, I believe you will correct the few glitches.
I always feel bad when I have to deduct a star knowing how much work there is behind all of your work. The less one star should not discourage anyone for giving your plugin a fear trial.
As of this review, I have the Star Review Manager Version: 1.2.2
First install, I had difficulty figuring the shortcode as the given one didn’t pick up anything. Current shortcode is
[srm_review_form container_id=2 srm_review id=2 option_type="stars"]
Everything seemed just so fantastic. The rating system was quickly setup. Now I wanted to publish.
Since I am a developer and preparing this for a client, I added my email for testing purposes. Later wanted to change, but there is no ‘Edit’ option to change notification email.
Just confirmed inside database: uninstall does not remove the srm_..tables. They are still there. I will go ahead and remove them manually.
Although plugin looked like it was uninstalled. I installed it again, but there must have been traces somewhere in WordPress database, because it started giving me the following error message
Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /…/…/public_html/blog/wp-content/plugins/star-review-manager/views/view.reviewform.php on line 55
I repeated the install/ uninstall but this time the ‘Manage review instances’ navigation item would not uninstall from WP admin menu.
Unfortunately, I had not taken any database backup for the past 3 days, but I went through the whole recovery of a 3 day old backup. Everything is messed up and I have to install WordPress all over again.
What I don’t get is that plugins are posted on WP and they are nowhere near beta testing. As developer, you should have tested install/uninstall processes ahead of time.
If we can resolve the above issues, I am willing to give this plugin another try because the first time it was setup, it seemed to do the magic and would change it to 5 star.
*Update: after uninstall of plugin, its (srm_tables) are still in the database.
