Support » Plugin: Rating-Widget: Star Review System » [RESOLVED]Works. But misleading information in description

  • I like the plugin, however one thing that has always bugged me is the false advertising by the plugin author.

    On the plugin description page, he specifies support for Schema, but that is only available in the paid version. I’m sure it was intentional, as he mentions in the description:
    ‘The Pro Version support star ratings into your BuddyPress activity updates and comments, BP’s bbPress forum posts ratings.’,
    while the Schema support is mentioned in the main description, in between features that are available for free.

    He is intentionally trying to mislead people into installing the plugin, which while a smart marketing tactic, is unethical.

    @jackdiago thanks for pointing that out. It was never done intentionally to mislead people. It’s an honest mistake, that’s all. Anyhow, I’ve just updated the description to clear out what’s free and what’s pro. Thanks again for the note and sorry for that.

    Btw. If you have any additional comments/notes/feedback you are more than welcome to contact me directly via [vova AT rating-widget DOT com]

    In that case, I apologize about the presumption. I do not care for it personally because I have my own system for implementing schema, but it could mislead innocent non-tech people, and hence, the rudeness.

    I tried changing the rating but I can’t, but incase anyone sees this review:
    I’d recommend this plugin 100%. It’s better and simpler than the other dozens of Rating Plugins I’ve used and if you do not need free schema implementation, don’t search any further.

    I totally understand why you’ve thought so, and it’s great that you’ve noticed that and wrote a review. Because there are probably others which felt the same.

    If you do have a minute, I would really appreciate if you could update the review and the rating, it’s very important for me and it’s super-easy:
    1. Go to
    2. Scroll to bottom
    3. Modify the rating and the review
    4. Click on “Edit Post” button and you are done 🙂
