Visitor Votes Read Only

In some cases you may need to show an average of your visitor’s votes, but without allowing them to rate it (e.g. in a category page). In this case, just add the readonly=”yes” parameter to yasr_visitor_votes shortcode.

All these shortcodes can be used along with the postid parameter. So,if you wish to show a rating from another post or page you can just use the postid, e.g. yasr_overall_rating size="medium" postid="XXXX"

  1. Hi. Nice plugin .. Just a quick question .. is there any way to add it by shortcode? I mean in my web i want to use in the homepage as well … but it shows on the left side down on the footer and makes the design ugly … Any idea? Best Regards

  2. Can a shortcode start inline with a previous text or have text after? I have a two ranking system, and want to put the stars before or after the previous 100-point system. But it always goes to the next line, no matter how I edit the HTML.

    1. Hi Pablo, of course is possible πŸ˜‰

      You can do it by placing the shortcode manually or even when auto insert is enabled.
