Hello,

We need this plugin for a book-review site. When we add a review on a “woo product-page” it works fine. Even the affiliate button works fine.

But…

We cannot use the widget for the sidebar. It doesn’t show any product category. Is there a solution? We think it should work with woo commerce- especially when it has “Affiliate Options”

Hope you can help.

Best wishes, Helge

Hey Helge,

Thanks for choosing Let’s Review.

Ah I see! V2 of the plugin was just submitted to CodeCanyon and should go live at some point today. The widget received a lot of improvements and new options to control it, can you please use it in v2 and see if you can get it to work with products? If not, let me know and I’ll investigate further.

Codetipi

Is version 2 imminent? Looking for alternatives to another plugin I use.

Hey Megamattius,

V2 was finally approved by CodeCanyon so it is live now. The presentation on the plugin page will be updated later to highlight all the improvements and new goodies :)

Codetipi

Just installed v2 — an excellent upgrade. The reader comments alone will massively improve engagement.

If I might suggest an option for the next version — allow review comments to be moderated first. I worry about hordes of paid spammers simply posting poor user reviews.

Otherwise, can’t wait to get it working. Another job well done Codetipi.

Hey Mac,

That’s really nice to hear, hope you enjoy using it for a long time. There are lots of other improvements in the plugin (check out the new shortcode toolbar button) which has multiple shortcodes which could be used to engage your readers even further.

Regarding the comments, you can moderate them. They are normal WordPress comments, so the moderation is all controlled by your comment settings (a plugin can’t override these), so go to Settings -> Discussion and adjust your settings to your desired moderation level to do that.

Thanks again for choosing Let’s Review!

Hi,

anyone else experienced the white screen of death when upgrading to v2? No idea what causes it, works fine again when I return to 1.2.

My support juuust expired :).

Hey Janospecnik,

Apologies for this! I’m going to copy/paste my response to Pupalol here as it’s the same thing:

Ah yes another user reported this! This is due to the plugin being optimized for PHP7 and a few lines (including 1225) use PHP7 rules. It is being tweaked at the moment and a new quickfix update will be released shortly.

As Codecanyon some times takes time to approve plugin updates, please open up a ticket at http://codetipi.ticksy.com and I can send you the updated plugin directly.

Codetipi

Hey!

Thank you for the explanation.

I can’t, my support expired :). Is there an alternative?

It would be really useful, we are launching the website and multiple reviews are just what we need. Cheers to that!

Thanks!

Ah right, in that case, send a private message via http://facebook.com/codetipi and we’ll get it sorted :)

No changelog included in your plugin files, and nothing in the description… what’s the new features?

You’re welcome!

I thought you were saying you wanted a template system in that in the “default values” section, you could save multiple different groups of default values, and in a new review, you would get to choose which group to use.

But if you want to use the shortcode, that is even easier, you could create your own templates already, because the shortcode uses options just like you wrote.

Build one review using the new shortcode toolbar button, and you can then save the code as a template, and simply copy/paste it wherever you want and tweak the values needed for the review.

Hope this helps.

You have right, basically I expected an integrated template system in the default values section, but I suggested you the shortcode possibility because it is simpler to implement.

And if you have already added it, fine then. I’ll just take a look at it.

Play around with the new shortcodes + shortcode tool, and see what you think :)

Pre purchase question: I wish to collect user reviews on one page and when they hit submit, the get redirected to a second second page which shows all related reviews. Is this possible? Then is it also possible to show the same reviews on multiple locations? For example on a custom post and at the same time in the review tab of woocommerce?

Hey Jullo,

Thanks for checking out Let’s Review.

1- The user reviews are part of the WordPress comments system, so when you hit submit, that action is actually controlled by WordPress. So I’m afraid what you want isn’t an option in the plugin, and as it is so specific, you will definitely need to hire a developer to help you out with it all. Because it’s the same about the landing page from the redirection, it sounds like you’d need a unique template created and you definitely need a developer to help you with that.

2- Yes, you can show the same review in multiple locations. If you add a review to a post, then via a shortcode you can load that review somewhere else.

This post from the demo site uses that shortcode to load multiple reviews from other posts: http://letsreview.cubellthemes.com/multiple-phones-review/

You can also use another special shortcode to create a one-off review that isn’t associated to any posts. So you could then copy/paste that same shortcode you created via the Let’s Review shortcode tool, and put it in other places.

This post shows multiple reviews using this other shortcode: http://letsreview.cubellthemes.com/multiple-full-reviews/

I hope this info is useful.

Codetipi

Thank you for your reply, I understand, no problem about the redirect i think i can work around and make a button in a row below.

Since I just recently bought a very similar plugin, I would like to ask this time a few more questions before i buy another one..

The review looks like it consist out of parts. Can I use specific parts (shortcodes) or do i have to use one shortcode to show them all as a bundle.

To make it specific and easy to answer, is there a shortcode for 1) only the user review form? 2) a shortcode for only user reviews? 3) a shortcode for only the summary?

4) I didn’t see many user reviews…only one with john doe.. is this the example how the user review will look like? Or did I miss something, are there more examples?

5) I see that there is an option to share the user review by email or twitter, are all social media’s shares possible or just these two?

6) Is there an example how the review will look like in responsive mode?

7) Can you show also a few screenshots of the backend options?

These are the things i couldn’t find here or in the live preview. It would be very helpful in order to make a buying decision. Thank you a lot.

Sure thing:

In each post, you have a review metabox with all the fields. You create the post’s review there and it outputs where you set it to output. You can also use a separate shortcode to build a one-off review and again, you can insert that anywhere.

2- The full user reviews are done via the WordPress comments. There is a shortcode for user ratings, which is what was used here: http://letsreview.cubellthemes.com/multiple-user-ratings/ the shortcode was added multiple times and using different settings to show the different ways it can look.

3- There isn’t a specific shortcode for just a summary, but you can use the “unique review” shortcode and only enter a conclusion title and conclusion content and it would only output that block.

4- The user reviews are done via comments, you can see some examples in the comments of this post: http://letsreview.cubellthemes.com/somebody-else/

5- No, those buttons are not from the plugin, they are from the theme running on the demo site (it’s our 15Zine theme: https://themeforest.net/item/15zine-hd-magazine-newspaper-wordpress-theme/10802918 ).

6- Open the demo site up in your phone to see it live yourself :)

7- Videos showing the backend will be made over time. For now the only screenshots are the ones in the plugin’s description page (Under the “Powerful, beautiful & easy to use” header).

But if you have ever used a Codetipi theme, you’ll know that the backend is as designed as the frontend. For example: the review options are all as simple as can be. They are composed of buttons with illustrations, simple On/off switches, speedy drag and drop (with add/delete buttons), proper sliders to set scores (if you use stars, the slider will be 0-5. If you use percentage, the sliders will be 0-100), some settings hide/show depending on other selections, etc. It’s all logical and pretty.

Hope this helps.

Hi there,

Do you have a list of the latest updates?

What’s new?

Thanks,

Igor

Hey Igor,

Another customer asked the same thing moments ago, so I’ll copy/paste the response here for you too:

There is a new changelog section directly inside the new plugin backend area (check the first “Welcome” page in the Let’s Review admin menu).

And an updated presentation on the plugin description page will be upload later to highlight all the new goodies and improvements. A “What’s New” video is also being made at the moment to show it all in action.

But as a quick recap, the main highlights are: User comments can now have full reviews. A new shortcode tool interface (New button in editing toolbar). A new backend interface. New review designs (Clean and Modern B ). A new migration tool to convert reviews from other review systems to Let’s Review. Some likely better performance through code tweaks. Re-designed documentation. And more, check the changelog.

Hope this helps.

Codetipi

thank you!

You’re welcome!

Congrats to the update.

I’m just missing the option of showing 2 digits behind the comma as we once talked about. :-( This is a really important topic for us.

Little improvement tip: The new option ‘Add Review Option To Comments’ is great! If the visitor choose to leave review via the comment box, then they should also have the possibility to leave a overall score with the help of a slider.

You’re welcome :)

I thought you wanted it to snap at quarters so the stars would appear cut at exact quarters – 1, 1.25, 1.5, 1.75, 2, 2.25, etc. are you saying you wanted literally any random score but with 2 digits? It would be a simple tweak to do that. Let me know.

Yes, please. This is the most important feature for me. We need this kind of exact score for the best albums of the year. Because the best album reviews are always close together, and we need to see the difference clearly. Thank you in advance for your help.

Ah I see, I thought you wanted it to snap at quarters, so that’s what the feature does. If you open up a ticket at http://codetipi.ticksy.com and include your admin login details I’ll see what I can do to help.

Hi, I’m having the same fatal error that others are experiencing when trying to install version 2.0.

Hey Luis,

You already opened a ticket about this, but just in case someone else reads this:

This is due to the plugin being optimized for PHP7 and a few lines (including 1225) use PHP7 rules. It is being tweaked at the moment and a new quickfix update will be released shortly.

As Codecanyon some times takes time to approve plugin updates, please open up a ticket at http://codetipi.ticksy.com and I can send you the updated plugin directly.

Thanks!

Everything’s working perfect and the migration tool works really fast!

Thanks Luis, really happy it’s all good now! Happy reviewing :)

Pre-purchase query:

1) I can see there is an option to include a conclusion with the review to summarize the whole review and overall rating. Is it possible to add a summary to individual criteria, to explain each star/percentage/point rating? Thanks!

2) Is there a comparison table functionality? If I review multiple restaurants in a single post, for example, it would be neat to summarize the whole post in a chart of some kind.

Thanks!

Hey again :)

1- No, I’m afraid that is not possible.

2- There is a list shortcode that comes in different designs and you can use to create summary lists of existing reviews, you can see examples here: http://letsreview.cubellthemes.com/top-x-lists/

Hope this helps.

Hello, how can i translate in Options > Who can leave User Rating—In the comments is “Is this a review?” and “review headline” but i want to translate it.

Hey Tease87,

The plugin doesn’t have the German translation done yet, it has Spanish/Danish/French at the moment. You need to do the translation. If you haven’t done it before, here are the steps:

1- Go to the theme translation folder, which is located in “lets-review/languages/”

2- Make a copy of the file ‘default.po’ and rename the file to the locale of your language. German I think is de_DE.po

3- Open Poedit (can be downloaded for free from http://www.poedit.net/) and open the file you have created in it

4- Translate all the strings and save your changes. After you save, you will have two files,a .mo and and a .po

5- Upload these files to “lets-review/languages/”

6- Make sure your WordPress site is set to be in German (Settings -> General) and it should automatically load the German files.

7- Every time you update the plugin you’ll need to re-upload the files. So to save yourself and other Germans time, please send the translation files over in an email so I can add them directly into the plugin. You can open a ticket at http://codetipi.ticksy.com and attach the files.

I hope this helps.

the user gen. reviews. Does it work if your site is using Disqus as default comment system? And the standard wordpress comments are not active?

Hey MEMT,

Hope you’re well :) And I’m afraid that is not possible, because Disqus works through an iFrame and works completely off-site, it isn’t possible to inject extra fields and data into Disqus comments at all.

Codetipi

Hello,

Is it possible to make separate page (or several) to showcase posts by rating, by amount of reviews, show latest reviews, and etc?

For example on one page show top rated posts for specific category, or tag?

Is there a list of how posts can be sorted?

Hey Eskimoz,

Yeah, you can do that thanks to a handy top list shortcode. You can create lists of posts using different options. You can either select specific posts/by categories/by tags. And you can select one/multiple of them too.

You can then select how many posts to show and the order can be “default/latest/top scores”, and you also have two different designs to choose from.

You can see a live demo of both designs here:

http://letsreview.cubellthemes.com/top-x-lists/

And to create the shortcode you’d use the “Let’s Review shortcode tool” which has a nice interface to set all your options.

Hope this helps.

Hello Codetipi, the conclusion text in the “Bold” style isn´t floating properly around the score box. In dekstop view it´s ok, but on a smartphone the conclusion text is displayed very narrow. Is there any way to change that view with CSS?

Best regards Markus

Hey again,

Ah I see, from the looks of it, it seems your current theme must have specific breakpoints in the css that the plugin can’t plan for. Once it is live (or if you can show me it before), I can look at your site’s css and share some css code tailored for your theme to tweak that.

Hello codetipi,

perfect! I will contact you as early as possible. Launch should be in about a week. Thank you!

Sure thing, you can submit a private email here if you’d rather keep it private: https://codetipi.com/contact-form :)

I am interested in your plugin, have just sent you a private message (because I do not want add your competitor’s website publicly on “Comments” page).
Thank you.

Hey Anna2054,

Thanks for the interest, and sure thing, I’ll check your message shortly.

Hey,

I’m just wondering if this plugin has comparison tables?

I checked on the live preview and couldn’t find it. Also I noticed something about it in the changelog so I thought i’d ask :)

Hey Markyb12,

Thanks for checking out Let’s Review :)

Currently you can create lists of existing reviews using a shortcode (easy to insert thanks to the Let’s Review shortcode tool) and order them by using different options. Currently there are two designs and you can check them out here: http://letsreview.cubellthemes.com/top-x-lists/

If that isn’t what you are looking for, feel free to send an email via https://codetipi.com/contact-form with the full suggestion and hopefully reference links to understand what you’re after and I can let you know if there are any plans for something like it.
