Integrating both post’s standard and multi ratings into comment, so that the post reader can add comment about the topic and assign rating (or review) for that post along with the comment, is very easy. Read for more details.
Since we are now very close to 1.4.0 version of the plugin, I decided to release current development version as a Beta. At this point plugin is 100% ready for complete comment integration for implementing review system.
The number of templates needed for rendering has grown, and at this point all the needed templates are completed. So, I have decided to display interconnection of all the templates and they use. So, this post contains a map of all T2 templates.
And, another new version, this time, mainly a bug fixing release. Several reported bugs are fixed and I have managed to expand few more custom functions with new parameters. Next week you can expect all review features completed in 1.4.0 release.
Last few versions of the plugin have introduced many changes, and settings have changed as well. Most important are two fully new features used for setting spider bot’s and stars sizes and sets that will be added to main active rating CSS file.
Another new version is here. This time, not many changes made from the previous version, but nevertheless this changes are very important at this point. You can expect 2-3 new posts in the following day to cover all the new changes.
For the past week I have been working on few more features from the roadmap. And, almost half of it is done by now. Most important new feature is support for integration of the rating blocks (both standard and multi) into comment form.
In last two days I have been reviewing the plugin code and looking for few bugs reported in the last week or so. And I managed to find some more bugs and fix them. Also, I have also started working on the recently announced features.
And, in a short while after previous major version, plugin has reached 1.3.0. Few new tools have been added, many more bugs are fixed and I have made many improvements to the code along with expansions to the t2 templates system.
