Hi there

Before buying your plug-in, I need to know the following :

1. I plan to put online a web site offering human resources services. People will pay a subscription to access a database of different resources like Plumber, Nannies, Daycare, etc.

2. When someone pays for the service, he’ll become a user with certain privileges like reviewing a specific person in my human resources database. In other terms, if a user hire a plumber for example, he will have the option to review his work in a few questions without the need to enter his email or click on a sumbit button. Is this possible ?

Thanks

Hey Mahers,

Thanks for the interest in Let’s Review.

I’m afraid that that sounds like a very niche/specific site that you are building, and I’m not sure Let’s Review is the right match for your needs. The plugin allows visitors to submit reviews via the comments system, but that does need email and needs to be submitted. You’d also need to have an editor review in the post, you don’t have to show it, but you need one so that the comment reviews know what criterias it should show. So I feel like even though there are some things the plugin does that could help, the implementation you need is completely different and I don’t think it’ll work as you hope or need it to.

Best of luck with the project though!

Hello,

Is it possible to have a widget you can display on other websites? Like a widget where people can submit their review, or a widget with a total score?

Hey TerrorJunk,

Thanks for the interest in Let’s Review.

Do you literally mean having Site A publish reviews, and then on Site B (completely different site) to add a widget to load reviews from Site A? If so, I’m afraid that as far as I know, that isn’t possible at all, as I’m not sure how a site can securely access the database of a completely different site to extract data.

Not sure, maybe trough an API? For example; I let people review envato on my website; I want to offer Envato the ability to display their score dynamically on their website; ignore the reviews for now. But just a widget, html code or dynamic image people can display on their website to show their average rating.

Ah right, but I’m afraid it isn’t that simple, there are serious security implications and not something a plugin like Let’s Review should be trying to do, so I’m afraid that won’t be possible. I’m convinced that no review plugin ever made has functionality like that in WordPress, mainly due to the complexity of it and the security risks to the site.

Did you ever add the Letter Grade functionality that you talked about adding over a year ago?

Hey Ewingmh,

The version 2 update for Let’s Review included tons of huge new features (user review comment system, complete new designs, new shortcode tool, ability to add user rating boxes anywhere or a complete unique post-independent review too, etc). The Letter grade is one of the few features that did not make the cut, but it is on the development wishlist so hopefully it’ll be added in a future update.

Bummer. Guessing it’d be fairly simple to remove the numbers and replace with letters?

I’m afraid not, the numbers are outputted automatically with code calculations, they aren’t manually entered in any way. For grades the php would need to get the number and then using some criteria (such as 0-10% = F, 11-20% = E.. etc) output the relevant letter.

It is near the top of the wishlist though, so in the next major update it will at the very least be attempted to add it :)
