With huge performance boost, many new features, and fixes, with more addons

Niš, Serbia, March 1, 2020. Dev4Press today announced the release of the updated plugin for WordPress: GD Rating System Pro 4.0, updates to all existing plugin addons and 2 new addons: Book Rich Snippet Addon and Analytics Addon. GD Rating System Pro is a comprehensive rating plugin for WordPress that includes multiple rating methods, support for a wide range of rating types (posts, comments, users, terms and custom user-defined types), detailed customization support through settings and via editable templates. The plugin includes 20 built-in addons and it has an additional 12 external addons (6 free and 6 pro).

Version 4.0 represents the biggest update to the plugin since the first version is released back in 2015. The work on this version took a lot of time, with development starting in September 2019, with the stable version released on February 24, 2020.

The new version introduces additional database tables and the upgrade procedure to migrate data to these new tables. The goal of that is to improve data organization, improve all the database queries, overall plugin performance and caching strategies used by the plugin. Othe new features include rewritten system for vote limiting, allowing you to limit votes for one rating item per user on a daily, weekly, monthly or yearly basis. And, the system that loads the JavaScript and CSS files is mostly rewritten to allow for better flexibility in loading only files that will be used on a specific page. Rich snippets addon is expanded with 3 more snippet schemas, posts and comments integration are much improved also. There are many other new features and updates, and a total of 20 bugs fixed in this release.

New ‘Analytics Addon’ is also released, allowing you to create reports and export ratings and votes matched by the report settings, allowing for various filters to narrow the list of rating items. Results are exported into JSON and CSV formats and can also include a statistics overview of the ratings and votes. Analytics Addon is a Pro addon, with the price starting from $29.00. Analytics Addon is included in the Dev4Press Plugins Club and Rating Plugin Club memberships without extra charge.

New ‘Book Rich Snippet Addon’ is released to add a new snippet schema for Books based on the Google implementation of the snippet, and it is fully tested and compatible with current Book schema implementation Google uses. This is a free addon for the Pro version of the plugin.
