This is the best ratings plugins I've used so far after tried many other stars/ratings/reviews/thumbs plugins.
I had this plugin running on my custom post type I made for showing list of games and allows users to rate it on the post page.
I also made a custom youtube like/dislike bar at the archive page as well, very cool.
In my opinion, this plugin is the best, cause it`s simple and you can configure it as you want. In addition, the author of plugin is always can help you if you have any questions. Support is the main feature for any plugin.
"Uses HTML5 LocalStorage to prevent the users from voting twice"
... user can clear this local browser storage or change browser and vote again again and again..
I wanted a way for readers/users to up-vote any/all topics/replies in bbpress without exponentially slowing down my site. By not adding user data into the voting process and only adding meta data to the posts this plugin performs beautifully. No needless and potentially crippling cross user/replies/topics database querying.
I simple inserted this plugin's function into the single-reply-loop (or whatever your theme calls it) within bbpress. I chose to put it right
With some css styling things look great.
Please, DON'T over complicate this plugin and ruin its primary benefit--efficiency. I see lots of requests for "extra" features in the support forum of this plugin and it scares me.
For those wanting more complexity/features there are plenty of other more bloated options available. Simplicity is its own reward.
Thanks a lot, Chad
plugin beautifully works in posts, pages and custom post types.
It took me almost a day to find a solution for my needs and the simplicity of that great plugin made my day. Thanks to the author!
I haven't used the plugin much yet, but so far the development team has been responsive and helpful.
i have tried many of the other bloated voting plugins that can't compete with the simplicity and ease of use this plugin has. i would recommend it to anyone who wants a rating system on their website, the support is great and its very customizable.
Works perfectly. The plugin author's support is perfect.
There are so many different voting plugins. Most of them are packed with full of features which sucks as rating a post should not decrease the website performance. I understand most of the plugins are meant for people who want everything to be automatic. But download it and do little work yourself and you will be more than happy when website performance is as good as it was. I wish there would be more these light weight plugins.
Thank you Sir!
