Support » Plugin: WP-PostRatings » Specific categories statement

  • I am unable to add the ratings shortcode on specific pages/posts content area because of where I am loading the ratings so I choose to enter the code in one of the theme templates.

    Per your instructions, this works and does what it’s supposed to.

    <?php if(function_exists('the_ratings')) { the_ratings(); } ?>

    However, I want to have it only show for specific categories so I use…

    <?php if ( is_single() && in_category( array( 3, 5, 14 ) ) )  : ?>
    
    <?php if(function_exists('the_ratings')) { the_ratings(); } ?>
    
    <?php endif; ?>

    That code works and loads for the specific categories. However, it seems that I should write the if statements differently from what I’ve read about php if statements online.

    Is there a better way to write this?

    Thank you very much.
