Intuitive Admin UI
An intuitive admin UI for creating rating forms with rating items, common review fields and custom fields.
Rating forms can be automatically displayed on a post or page or added via a widget or a shortcode. You can easily assign different rating forms to different posts, taxonomies, terms (e.g. post category) and post formats.
Unlimited Rating Forms
Here are two different rating forms using shortcode [mrp_rating_form rating_form_id="1" title="Rating Form 1"] and [mrp_rating_form rating_form_id="2" title="Rating Form 2"].
Ratings can be displayed in a review layout e.g. [mrp_rating_entry_details_list show_overall_rating="true" show_custom_fields="false" show_rating_items="true" limit="2" layout="table"].
Ratings can be automatically approved or moderated. Admin users have full control to moderate and edit ratings.
Each rating entry can have a status of pending, approved or unapproved.
E-mail notifications can be sent to moderators whenever a new rating requires approval. The e-mail settings allows you to customize the e-mail details and templates.
Rating Item Details
You can display the rating item results breakdown of a rating form in a poll format with three different layouts: no_options, options_inline and options_block. You can optionally specify rating items using the rating_item_ids shortcode attribute. This can be be very powerful if used across multiple rating forms and posts.
e.g. [mrp_rating_item_results layout="options_block" rating_item_ids="1"]
Overall ratings for each rating item e.g. [mrp_rating_item_results preserve_max_option="false" rating_item_ids="1"]
Counts for each rating item e.g. [mrp_rating_item_results layout="options_inline" result_type="score" rating_item_ids="1"]
Logged in or anonymous users are allowed to leave ratings. There is an option to disallow anonymous ratings in the plugin settings if desired.
Logged in users can view and edit their existing ratings. If a user has already submitted a rating form, user’s can update previously submitted values. The [mrp_user_ratings_dashboard] shortcode also allows logged in users to manage their own ratings in one place.
Rating Results List
A widget and the [mrp_rating_results_list] shortcode are available to display a list of overall post ratings. You can sort ratings by highest rated, lowest rated, most entries, post title ascending or post title descending.
e.g. [mrp_rating_results_list show_rank="true" show_filter="false" limit="3" result_type="score" sort_by="highest_rated" show_featured_img="false" title="Top Ratings"]
e.g. [mrp_rating_results_list limit="3" sort_by="most_entries" title="Most Entries" show_rank="false"]
5 Star Rating, Score & Percentage Results
You can choose from star ratings, score and percentage results.
Here’s a 5 star rating using shortcode [mrp_rating_result]
Here’s a score using shortcode [mrp_rating_result result_type="score" show_title="true" show_count="false"]
Here’s a percentage using shortcode [mrp_rating_result result_type="percentage" show_title="true"]
You can add input and textarea custom fields to collect additional information in the rating form.
WordPress Comment System
Ratings can be automatically added to the standard WordPress comment form. You can also display a user’s rating entry details alongside their comments.
schema.org structured markup can be be added to every page which allows search engines to display the aggregated ratings as rich snippets.
Font Icons & Custom Star Images
Font Awesome and Dashicon font icons are supported out-of-the box for star ratings. You can also choose to upload custom star images to use instead of using font icons.
The plugin has an in-built template system. This allows anyone with basic PHP, HTML and CSS knowledge to customize the plugin’s presentation.
Overall Rating Algorithm
You can assign weights to different rating items for a rating form. Average and Bayesian average algorithms can be used for calculating ratings.
User’s with either an Administrator or Editor role have the capability to edit ratings.
The plugin has plenty of WordPress action hooks and filters to allow developers to customize and extend the plugin.
