- Manage multiple reviews by approving or deleting them before they are shown on the website.
- Add a dynamic amount of rating categories to your review form
- Generate an easy to use review form using a shortcode.
- Style your own reviews and review form by uploading your own custom CSS or adding to the given CSS.
- Extensive help page with information
- English and Dutch translation.
Unzip the star-review-manager.zip file in your plugin folder and activate your plugin in the admin menu.
And you’re done!
- What is a review instance
A review instance is a container in which your reviews reside.
- How do I manage my reviews
You can manage (approve or delete) your reviews by clicking on the manage reviews link on the Manage review instances page.
- I created a review instance but I do not see anything show up on the page?
Make sure that you include the review container shortcode (do not forget to also include the id parameter that can be found in the review instances table).
Next to the review container, make sure that you also include the review form short-tag (including the related container_id parameter).
More information about this can be found on the help page, located in the admin menu.
