Hi WPbuddy,

Nice plugin!


Where can we find the star ratings output in the backend? I dont see it with plugin options.

We have a few custom categories but we cant find the data from that.

Thanks for helping.

Hey TravisKempers, thanks for your comment. I hope you’re doing well today.

Unfortunately I don’t know exactly what you’re looking for. Are you searching for the settings page? If yes, it’s located in “Comments” -> “Rating”. If you want to check the ratings for every single comment, please take a look in the “Comments” section. There are several new columns which show the ratings.

Hope this helps. If not, please don’t hesitate to contact me again ;)


Hi there,

1) Can we use only a thumbs up rating?

2) Can both up & down ratings counts as one? Idea is to show a total number of all ratings.

Regards, Igor

My friend, then one more question? On screenshot #2 showed an option to “Activate down voting” on/off, what does this feature mean?

Thanks, Igor

Hey Igor, yes, you’re right. I have to correct my self on that. It’s possible to deactivate the down-rating right from the backend. However it’s not possible to count ups and downs as one.


Is there a shortcode to insert the comment section on blank pages?

Hey storeofideas, no, that’s not possible with the plugin as it should be the job of a theme to do that. It’s also different within every theme. This plugin is made to integrate the rating into the comments.

However it’s possible to show the comment ranking with a shortcode if you’re looking for that. Please see this FAQ question.

Hope this helps.

Hi there,

One pre-order question: do you have anu plans to add sorting feature inside comments? I mean most vote? comments, with the most posiive rating, most negative one.

Thanks, Igor

Hi team, I was talked about sligtly different idea – ability to visitors to filter comments by new, best & worst rated. Something like that – http://rock-review.ru/news/18777-novyj-videoklip-ot-halestorm-i-am-the-fire.html

Regards, Igor

Hey Igor, ah okay. Now I understand. Unfortunately this is not possible at the moment. But that’s a good idea for one of the future releases. I will add this to my future list.

Many greetings

Thank you. Almost all comment (and voting) systems have this feature.

hopefully you will keep improving and updating this plugin, because it’s great!

it would be great if you could offer a way to show some statistics for every registered user, like the number of thumbs up and thumbs down his comments got. is that possible?

thank you

or at least the total score of its comments. so if a user has 3 comments, each with a score of 3, the user will have 9

Thanks man. Appreciate your input. I’ve added your request to my request a function page.

Many greetings

Pre Sale Question (I’m sorry, I don’t think I understand Tom’s comment): Can this be used in combination with Revolution Slider like this http://MerchantSide.com website?

Hey Stucazz, and thanks for your comment.

I’m not quite sure what you mean exactly as I don’t see any comment sections on this page. Can you describe a little more what you want to achieve?

Thanks and many greetings

I’m so sorry, I posted on wrong thread! :-p

No worries ;)

Hello, is WPML compatible with your plugin? Is it possible to automatically change the language of your plugin depending on the user’s language?

Hey Saelbeth. My plugins is fully translatable. But I don’t know exactly what I need to do to make the plugins compatibly with WPML. As far as I know it’s possible to translate the strings used in the plugins right from the WPML admin interface. So I guess in most cases there is no need for any special changes.


Hi, i install the plugin, i would like to have the possibility to insert for the user the possibility to give from 1 to 5 stars, how i can do it?

Hey sigenial, and thanks for your comment. I hope you’re doing well today.

A star-rating is not supported by the plugin. It only allows up- and/or down-rating.



After I installed the plugin a lot of my users are asking me to show both down vote and up vote count and not just the result, is there an option which can make that happen?

Another thing is regarding sorting, can I have the plugin sort best comments first and also at the same time after those ones show the new ones (for the ones which don’t have a rating or their rating is 0 and then the negative ones after all of those)?

Regards Parham

Hey there,

First: Here is a little code snippet that allows you to show up and down votes: and-down-votes”>How can I show the number of up and down votes?.

Second: Yes you can resort the comments. There is an option for that on the settings page of the plugin (under the settings tab).

Third: Of course it’s possible to resort comments the way you like it. However this isn’t really easy as you have to know how to handle SQL queries. Especially because the original query is already very complex. Please take a look at the following Gist (code example). You can find additional hints right in the comments section there.

Hope this helps.

Can I login with facebook and google+?

Hey JulianWolf576, and thanks for your comment. Unfortunately I don’t know what you mean exactly!?


:D I add, for example, this plugin to my wordpress blog. When a guest wants to comment a post he can do the login with facebook, gmail or email? Thanks

Thanks for the explanation. The answer is: no. The reason is: this plugin is not a social login plugin. It allows the user to rate your comments ;)

Hope this helps.


how I do selection “UP” or “DOWN” active? I mean, that if I click on UP or DOWN, how I do active choice showing for example with grey colour?

Thank you for answer.

Hey Cihi, and thanks for your comment. Unfortunately I don’t understand what you mean exactly. Can you explain a little more please?


It’s simple…

If I hover cursor on choice (for example up) – symbol is black (or grey). I want to stay black.(or grey) after click too.

Example: https://ctrlv.cz/shots/2016/11/28/frUS.png – hover on UP (grey symbol) https://ctrlv.cz/shots/2016/11/28/YZbS.png – after vote (only score up, grey up doesn’t stay)

Is it possible?

Hey Cihi, and sorry for my late response. Go to the “Comments” -> “Ratings” page in your WordPress dashboard. Scroll down till you can see the custom CSS textarea. Enter the following:

.wpbcr-icon:visited {
   color: #000000!important;

000000 is the HEX for black. You can define another color if you like.


I sent a profile message, waiting for response

Hey there again, post types are not the same things as categories or single posts. So:
  • You can choose different post types (posts, pages, etc.)
  • You cannot activate/deactivate on a single post separately
  • You cannot activate/deactivate on a single category

Hope this helps.

ok I see. Would it be difficult for you to code the per category feature on a next update ? lol

So you want to see a functionality to active comment-ratings on posts that have specific categories only, right? I’ve added this to the request a function page.

Compatibility issue with https://codecanyon.net/item/facebook-recent-comments-widget-for-wordpress/7522372 Once I’ve installed the FB recent comments widget, when users click on + or – they will be redirected to the top of the page they are reading.

I deactivated the FB plugin, if you want I can send you the plugin files

Of course, you can do that at any time.

Hey diretur, I’ve checked your Facebook plugin with my plugin and for me it works just fine. Do you have any issues with the Comment Rating Plugin when the FB Comment Plugin is disabled?

Hello, I need to resort the comments, but it looks like the plugin only resort the comments page by page? https://faithtrend.com/2017/06/09/who-is-jesus-in-your-life/


ic153 Purchased

PHP Version: 7.1.6-1~ubuntu16.04.1+deb.sury.org+1

Ok, thank you. I will check that and go back to you as soon as I can.

This has been fixed. And update will be available as soon as it’s through Envatos review.

Hi, is this plugin compatible with BuddyPress now?

Hey towor. Thanks for your comment. No, this plugin is not made for BuddyPress and there are currently no plans to make it compatible with it. Sorry.

I like the look of your plugin and want to buy but unfortunately it’s not compatible. Last night I downloaded Purple Heart Rating, which you give for free at your website. But the problem is that it takes quite long time to load the result after I click on the button. And I can’t place the buttons above comments. Furthermore, IP address shows text, not number. I use wordpress 4.7.5. This means I cannot use it.

Thanks for your help. Now ALL bugs that I found have been solved. And the Plugin author reply my mail very fast ! It is Awesome.

I love this Plugin very much. I just need a simple plugin that have tiny useful function really what I need. I do not need a plugin that complicated functions. What it’s seem that complicated plugin is bigger then the CMS itself.

I love only this Comment Rating Plugin, very simple, and tiny. have no more useless functions. I have compared other plugins, that is very expensive and have many many functions that I do not need now.

By the way , this price is good acceptable.(but unfortunately, many people seems that do not like to pay a fee for a plugin) Wish you a prosperous business, have a lucky sale.

And I will Submit a Chinese translation to this plugin in the future.

Good luck Jason

Hey Jason, and thanks for your awesome review. By the way you can rate my plugin here.

If you have any other issues, please let me know.

Greetings to you and have a nice weekend! ;)

Hey, What im looking for is a way to insert a shortcode into a page and customers be able to add comments and rating per page with the ability to show those comments and ratings on the page or wherever I put the shortcode. Does this have that ability ?

Hey cab434, and thanks for your comment. I’m not sure if I get it right. You want to add a whole comment section with a shortcode, right? If so, this plugin is not the right one for you. It instead adds the rating functionality to the normal WordPress comment section.

Hope this helps.

Hi! After WP has updated to 4.8.2 I see an errors in my site logs like this:

2017/09/22 13:33:22 [error] 14825#14825: 3316368 FastCGI sent in stderr: “PHP message: You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near ‘%u’ at line 1 SELECT COUNT() FROM wp_cr_ips WHERE cr_ip = ‘’ AND cr_comment_id = %u, do_action(‘wp_ajax_nopriv_wpbcr_ajax_comment’), WP_Hook->do_action, WP_Hook->apply_filters, wpbuddy\plugins\CommentRating\Ajax_Rate::fetch_request, wpbuddy\plugins\CommentRating\Ajax_Rate::check_if_user_can_rate, QM_DB->query

+ 2 same (“%u”) errors in other code.

It happens when someone rate some comment.

Seems like “cr_comment_id” doesn’t exist in “%u”? Or it’s a problems with my server?

Hey zubiikov, and thanks for your comment. Yes, the problem occurs due to WordPress 4.8.2 which closed a security whole in a database function. Unfortunately it seems that the function now does not recognize the %u parameter any longer. We’ll provide an update today that should fix the issue.

Many greetings
