This plugin adds a shortcode tag that will display a rating in one of several formats. Here is a feature breakdown:

  • Input ratings as a fraction (4/5) or a percentage (80%).
  • Use any amount of stars from 2 to 100.
  • Set the minimal star fraction allowed, whole, half or quarter.
  • Split multiple ratings in one post/page into groups, and have a separate overall rating calculated for each.
  • Display the rating as image stars, text stars, a percentage, a fraction, or any combination.
  • Multiple star image sets included, others can be easily added.
  • Fully templatized output, use whatever tags you want.
  • Optionally group ratings in a table or other structure.
  • Settings page for global settings and tag defaults.

The only required parameter is rating, the rest are optional. Here is a basic example. [xrr rating=4/5]

This will convert the 60% into a fraction and display it as text stars: [xrr rating=60% display_as=textstars]

This will display 10 stars from the tiny_star image set and label the rating 'Movie Rating:': [xrr rating=7.25/10 imageset=tiny_star label="Movie Rating:"]

Check the Tag Options section for complete options.

The global settings on the settings page are documented there.
