Allow your Visitors Rate and Review Your Content.
If you have a blog all about your world travel adventures, healthy food recipes, reviews of the latest gadgets, or any other topic; we bet you’re curious about what your readers think about your content. Sure you can hint your readers to contribute comments on the bottom of your page, but more often than not, they won’t post their comments. And if they do post their comments, other future readers would need to read through all the comments in order to get a grasp of whether people love the article.
With Five-Star Ratings & Reviews, you can allow your visitors and readers to rate your articles. Your visitors will see each article’s/content’s average star rating within your article list and in other pages in your site, and they would be able to easily see how great your content is.
This also works for Custom Post Types. This means that if you have a plugin installed that adds your graphic or photography portfolio, restaurant menu items and other custom post types, you can also add star ratings to them.
You can also use Five-Star Ratings & Reviews if you have an online shop or marketplace. If your online shop uses these e-commerce plugins, you can easily add star ratings and user reviews to each of your products:
- Easy Digital Downloads,
- WP eCommerce,
- Jigoshop, or
You can choose to let your customers rate the products that they’ve purchased and leave product reviews!
Instead of just allowing your users to leave comments, with Five-Star Ratings & Reviews, you can now let them add in their own five-star rating along with their personalized review. Each user review contributes to the total rating of each article, and they will be displayed vertically inside them.
Aside from letting your visitors review your content, you – as the author – can also leave your own star rating on your content. This special rating is separately displayed with the user reviews to give emphasis. This feature is especially helpful for review sites where you usually want to showcase your own review of a product or a gadget, while still allowing your readers to contribute their own ratings.
Every website has different looks and different needs. We’ve got you covered! Among other things you can change colors of the stars, their sizes and also change their shapes into hearts or a thumbsup icon. Each label can also be adjusted as well in the settings if your site has a more playful or stricter tone.
