    Hi Brian, I noticed that highest rated was not ordering posts by user scores. It seemed randomg. I found this on the support forum http://industrialthemes.ticksy.com/ticket/116177/search/ Changin it to this did order the articles by user rating, but it only shows a few articles when there are many more which have been rated.

    There are also issues with the TOP RATED widgets. They are not pulling through any data.

    Have all of them actually been given both an editor and user rating? Because that would be required in order for them to display...

    The top rated widgets also work only on editor ratings, so you need to make sure your articles have been assigned editor ratings.

    No, we have turned editor ratings off, so they only receive user ratings. As I mentioned I applied that code change from that previous thread, but it did nothing. Is there something I can change to take into account the total rating score, rather than the editor score only, effectively dismissing the editor ratings in the process?

    You can turn off editor ratings but then the downside is that some of the areas that sort by ratings won't work correctly, as is the case with your situation. I have it on the list of possible future theme updates to set it so you can actually sort purely by user ratings without requiring editor ratings at all, but unfortunately I don't have it implemented yet so I don't have any specific code locations or anything for you at this time...

    ok so if that's not working...can you provide me custom css to hide the sort by highest rated? Also I see that a lot of people are kind of using the theme in this way, with your workload is this likely to make it into the next theme update :)

    I have found the check box where they can be turned off. It would be great if user ratings could be used to sort articles. I see that you already have that feature in widget of trending articles. Thanks Brian.

    Hello Salih Mujcic

    Can I ask you a Question?

    On your Site (gemerclips.tv) you are using a social media bar (under the videos). Is this a plugin for wordpress? Can you give my the name of that please?

    Thank you very much

    @Salih - I've had another request for that too. It's on the possibilities list but I'm not completely sure when/if it will make it in.

    Hi SA,

     

    Sure it is a plugin it's called "Simple Share Buttons". Best of luck :)
