wysiwyg editor stops working for posts
By , for WP 4.0

Seemed to be a neat plugin at first sight. However, the wysiwyg editor stopped working for my blog posts. The editor becomes white/blank and therefore useless...

Deactivating the rating-widget plugin makes my wysiwyg editor working again.

Another issue: sometimes it takes long to make connection with the rating-widget server, which makes the stars invisible at the page.

Wanted to give it 2 stars here, but that should mean it 'works'. In my case it doesn't work, since I can't use my wysiwyg editor anymore. Therefore 1 star.

When using default theme Fourteen, the problem seems to be gone. Changed rating to a 4 star.

My homepage not showing any ratings, what’s wrong?

Best Ratings but not perfect
By , for WP 3.5.1

I like this widget But I thought that I should give a heads up to other people looking for a rating widget.

1. the rating widget is hosted elsewhere. On the creators servers so you won't have access to the ratings.

2. It cannot show ratings for posts under one category. It only shows all ratings across all posts in the widget or all ratings in comments using the thumb rating system.

If these facts do not bother you then this widget is perfect for you. It is definitely the best ratings widget currently available for wordpress and it even incorporates with other major plugins like buddypress and bbpress which is a major plus as well.
