User Ratings

See the User Ratings feature in action

In the free plugin you can get ratings on your recipe with  comment ratings. The Premium plugin makes it even easier to get ratings by allowing your visitors to simply click on the stars within the recipe card.

Both comment and user ratings will be combined to an average that is shown both in the recipe and the recipe metadata.

How to prevent bad user ratings

To prevent visitors from leaving bad ratings by just clicking on the stars we highly recommend using the "Force visitors to leave a comment" setting on the WP Recipe Maker > Settings > Recipe Ratings page. This allows forces people to actually leave a comment if they want to give the recipe a rating of 3 stars or less, for example:

Take note that you need to have the Comment Ratings feature enabled for this setting to show up.

Can we edit User Ratings for a recipe?

The individual user ratings can be viewed and edited on the WP Recipe Maker > Manage > Features > Ratings page.

It's also possible to reset all User Ratings for a recipe on the WP Recipe Maker > Manage > Recipes page.

I can only seem to vote once from my house?

The User Ratings feature includes an IP check to prevent spam. Because of this you can probably only vote once from your house, even when using different devices. Take this into account when testing the feature.

I cannot click on the stars in the recipe

This usually happens because of a JavaScript problem caused by another plugin or your theme. Try  these debugging steps or contact us.
