Exactly what I needed
By , for WP 4.5.3

This is a very low profile plugin that displays a rating based on the score you enter in a shortcode. I did not need a complete user voting system - just an easy & effective way for my friends and I to enter scores in a blog review about sandwiches. I went through probably 5 or 6 different plugins before I finally found this one! Thank you so much.

Fantastic plugin! Exactly what I was looking for!
By , for WP 4.3.1

Thanks for a great plugin! This is exactly what I was looking for and it has exceeded my expectations by being able to customise the settings.

Well done.

By , for WP 4.2.2

This plugin is fantastic! I wanted to create my own image for ratings and this is the only plugin I found that allows for such customization. Mike is amazing and incredibly helpful. I'm new to the whole programming thing and appreciate his willingness to work through issues with me.
Make sure to read the instructions carefully. It took me a few times before I fully understood what I needed to do. Once you've read through the instructions, implementation is seamless!

Nice plugin

Just perfect!

After spending a whole evening trying rating scripts (some too elaborate, some just not suitable for my needs.. etc etc) I found this one. Easy, full of features, perfect!

Works like it is suppose to

This plugin works exactly like it is supposed to. If you can't get it working or don't understand how it works, then by all means READ THE INSTRUCTIONS!

If it doesn't show correctly on your website, check your syntax and be sure you have the quotation marks in the correct place.

I love this plugin and use it in nearly every food review I write.

Works great, but...

I had to change line 121 in yasr-shortcode-functions.php


if( is_singular() || is_main_query() ) {

in order to use the yasr_visitor_votes shortcode.

Do not show stars images.

Very Nice, Very Flexible
By , for WP 3.8.1

I am using this strictly to provide my own ratings of books and resources I am reviewing on my site. It was very simple to install (just dropped right in, really), and easy to configure. The plugin doesn't require much configuration, but be sure to look at the configuration page at Settings->Universal Star Rating to see what the options are. Put in the shortcodes where the ratings need to go, and voila! It just works, and it looks great.

Brilliant, easy to understand and use!!!
