About this demo

This is the demo website for the GD Rating System Pro plugin for WordPress. The plugin is developed by Dev4Press, and a license for the Pro version is available to purchase on the official plugin homepage. With the Pro license, you get access to several extra free addons and graphics packs, and you can also purchase premium addons to get more complex features: multi ratings, user reviews…

To get the plugin and all the addons available, you have the option of getting the Rating Plugin Club Membership license.

About the Demo

This demo shows the comment form rating integration allowing users to leave ratings for posts through the comments form when submitting comments, instead of the direct post rating. To submit a rating for each post, you need to leave a comment and the rating with the comment. The rating can be included only with top-level comments, if the comment is a reply to another comment, the rating is not included (this is an optional feature).

Rating plugin and addons used

This demo uses only GD Rating System Pro plugin and Comment Form Addon. Comment Form Addon is free with the license of the GD Rating System Pro, or with the Rating Plugin Club Membership license.

Theme used

This demo uses the GeneratePress theme (with Pro license). The demo website runs on the child theme for GeneratePress because it makes it easier to later expand things with additional code or templates, and in general, using a child theme is better in the long run.

Demo Data has been generated using DemoPress plugin, also developed by Dev4Press.
