I want to buy the ratings module, but I was hoping you could answer a quick question before I do.
You can put ratings on each directory listing – fabulous! – just what I was after, but can you display a list of businesses with highest ratings first?
I would like the option to display all entries in a given category with the highest rating at the top. Allow the user to choose, alphabetical, highest rated, etc.
Can it also list the highest rating out of all the entries, irrespective of which category they are in?
I've just tested the plugin on your demo site and I have a couple more questions before I buy.
Doesn't this module now over ride any comments section? You can comment on the review and comment as per normal? This seems like duplication to me.
My review on your demo site was instantly inserted on the page, is there a way to check the reviews before they go live? If not, this will lead to spam! Can you delete reviews of other people if you are the admin?
How do you prevent more than one review per person? IP Address, cookie, etc?
The ratings is different than the comment section, since the rating (stars) are bundled and displayed with the comments. I would probably turn off comments if I had ratings on for a site, they are duplicate functions, but with different purposes.
We don't have a way to approve the ratings right now (good suggestion though! We'll add that in the future), but you definitely CAN edit and delete the reviews as admin, so no problem there.
Ratings are limited to 1 per registered user and for sites that allow unregistered users, 1 per IP address.
We haven't added that ability yet, but we could allow for sorting that way with the addition of the module. We'll probably add that in the next upgrade.
Thanks for your reply.
I'm going to hold off purchasing the plugin until it is a bit more developed. If you had the following capabilities, it would be an awesome purchase!
1. Ability to turn on/off comments with ratings.
2. Ability to approve ratings
3. Ability to sort listings (with a number of options, e.g. highest/lowest first, most rated, etc.)
4. Google Richsnippets (to allow ratings to be listed on Google)
Then this would definitely be worth it in my opinion. I will be watching with a keen eye!
