GD Rating System Pro 1.2.4

GD Rating System Pro 1.2.4 is a minor release that includes a couple of fixes, improvements and some very important updates to posts and comments sorting and rating query object.

To make the plugin more flexible, posts and comments sorting objects are moved into plugin core from addons. And, both have one more option you can use to set a minimal rating for filtering posts or comments for sorting. Post sorting has few new filters for auto sort feature used for post types archives. Rating query object can have post status set if you are querying posts items, and by default is set to publish and closed posts (for bbPress topics). There are several other small updates too.

As for the fixes, there are several bugs fixed: problem with bbPress top rated topics view used with like this method showing topics with no likes, problem with repeated revoting with like this method, minor issues with rating log, problem with post meta box saving and minor issue with plural form in the like this text display. Big thanks go to Benj Lipchak for reporting several of these issues and even providing fixes.

That’s all for now, please report any issues and problems in the support forum.

Next major version coming soon

Next, 1.3 version is scheduled for the end of this month. It will include new addon for handling display of ratings in feeds (RSS, AMP, FBIA, ANF), support for any icon in FontAwesome, some admin side improvements, option to prevent post or comment authors from voting for own posts or comments, and improvements to Editor addon and rating recalculation.

If you want to test GD Rating System Pro, you can request demo website where you can check out all the plugin features and decide if the Pro version is what you need. If not, you can download the free version, and evaluate it and maybe later decide on an upgrade. The free version can be download from WordPress plugins repository: GD Rating System on WordPress.org.
