WP Review Plugin – sneak peek!

Whenever I was writing a review on any of my blogs, I wanted a simple plugin that would allow me to create a simple review table, add stars, calculate the average rating and add a summary. Unfortunately there was no such plugin. And that’s why we’ve set out to create it.

We’re already doing internal testing but I wanted to give you a sneak peak and get some feedback from you.

Here’s how the final result looks on light theme:

reviewtable

We’re also doing a white version of the table for dark themes.

Here are the settings for setting up product types:

reviewtype

There are a few other minor options but mostly this is it. Create product types, write a standard post, select product type in the post and rate it. That’s it. Simple as can be.

Questions

  • Would you like to see more table color options (beside white/black)? If so, which?
  • Is there anything else you would like to see in a review plugin?
  • Any other comments or suggestions.

Let us know in the comments or send us an email.

    This is a great idea! I would like to see a white background color with red stars. Can the comment area be larger or does it expand with the amount of words?
    Thanks.

    Hi Dejan – Looks good. It would be nice if we could easily style it using CSS. If we had a list of the classes or ID’s used to format the various items, we could then restyle to fit whatever environment we found ourselves in.
    Just a thought. I don’t want it to get too complex, but that way those who are comfortable with CSS would have a lot of flexibility and those that aren’t comfortable with CSS could opt for the standard options.
    Either way it looks like a nice addition to the toolbox.

      George,

      this might be interesting for a future version, it might take too much dev time to do this now. But yes, definitely a good idea and worth thinking about it for the future versions.

    In the configuragtion sceen as Table color why not just put a color picker ?

      Mercel,

      table color is not just one color, there are four: text, two background colors and stars. So it would complicate a bit. If we go that route, we’ll need something like George before you suggested.

      It never occurred to me you’d want rating beside 5 and 10. I think it’s easier to just and add, for example “3” and “7”. We’ll put this in the next version.

    Can’t wait to use this plugin! I would love to see some options for medium range colors that blend in better with softer color schemes and allow gold or red stars to pop. Or alternatively, maybe a white background with a good choice of colored frames.

    Does the option list include the option to add a custom besides the list in the drop down? A product like a fashion item/accessory would need other appropriate options. For example ‘very comfortable’ for shoes, ‘ideal for’, etc.
    Adding some flexibility to options. I hope it makes sense.
