Best rating widget
By , for WP 4.2.2

This is undoubtedly the best rating widget for wordpress as well as blogger and other platforms.
I was using this widget in my blogger site. But now I moved my website (http://micromaxunite2.net) to wordpress.
The only problem I faced with this widget is that I'm unable to display old rating from blogger site although the domain name is same only platform changed.
Highly recommended widget.
Update: Use high resources. Uninstalled.

Honestly, it's good plugin but some of these advertorial links just don't look great to users.

Sorry, Not for me

I downloaded it because I wanted to use the star ratings in Google Rich Snippets. Then I discovered this feature was only in the 'Premium' package which comes with an $8.00 per month fee (really, $8.00 per month for stars?). Also, they only let you use the plugin for a few days, then the 'Free' version becomes stripped of most of its functionality and includes ads and other forms annoying branding. I actually didn't use the plugin after the 7-day 'Trial' period. After the company told me about their strategy via email, I uninstalled the Ratings Widget plugin.

I understand Ratings Widget Inc. needs to make money to be able to produce a good product, but I don't like their way of doing business. There are many companies out there that provide real functionality for free. And then the companies will offer paid add-ons that aren't critical, but make using their main plugin a little easier. I appreciate companies that use this model and I usually end up buying their paid add-ons. On the other hand, I'm buying nothing from Ratings Widget Inc. because they will only let you use their usable version for seven days.

not for woocommerce

I wish it was working for reviews on Woocommerce

Pro Version the only useful option
By , for WP 3.4.2

I originally reviewed this as 1 star because I was annoyed that the only way to actually see any ratings is to buy the pro version.

I am still annoyed because it is a brilliant programme - I would award the programme 5 stars for what it is. However, I have given it 3 stars because even on the free version I would have expected a minimal way to view whether you have received any reviews. This doesn't happen at all. If you want to see if someone has added a review then you have to visit each and every page/post.

The pro version is way too costly for our charity and so we have moved elsewhere.

Note to the developer:
Is it possible to allow a small section that simply says, "You have received a review on this page".

We could then review the page to see the responses. It wouldn't affect the stats element of your pro version.
