This will be most likely last release in the 1.5.x series. Mostly this is bug fixing and improving deletion of different types of votes, fixing Safari/Firefox problems with tabs on the admin panels and improving RSS integration for multis and thumbs.
For the last few weeks I have been working on the new website called TVScape as the title suggests. First version of the website should be live in the next two weeks. Since the website will be review oriented it will depend heavily on GD Star Rating.
GD Star Rating allows you to set rules for voting that can be global, per category and per post. This way you can set very precise rules through out the blog and control the voting process. This post will explain how voting rules work and how to use it.
To summarize the post, there will be no comments reordering using ratings in GD Star Rating. For now. Problem is not that I don’t want to make it, but that it cannot be done at the moment the way I would like it to be done. Here’s why.
I realized that some users didn’t quite understand everything about templates, so I decided to go through all the T2 options and the way the plugin uses Templates. Before asking any T2 related questions you need to read this post first.
And, it’s finally here. Thumbs up/down or recommendation ratings are now part of GD Star Rating. Thumbs can be used for both posts and comments, can use different sets much like the rating stars. This version also features few fixes and changes.
This second part will analyze GD Star Rating impact on blog pages. This post will focus on number of queries that GD Star Rating adds to a page. There are many factors that must be taken into account, but I will cover most interesting cases of use.
