Can you recommend a rating plug-in which goes well with Classifieds?

One where users can rate Listings and nothing else?

All which I have tried so far do not work because either rating appears elsewhere as well or even several times on one page/listing/post

Thank you for contacting us here in the Support Forum

I don't know of any plugins that surely work, right now I would need to consult that with the 2nd Tier Support

But, have you considered using Toolset Plugins only in order to achieve your Goal?

As a simple and very basic (yet) example, you could:

1. create a "Select field" Custom Field (lets call it "Rating)

2. Add some Options, lets call them "Excellent", "Good", "Satisfying", "Bad"

3. With CRED Plugin you could then create a Form that Edits Existing content (depending on which content you want users to rate)

4. Include something like this in this new CRED Form:

[credform class="cred-form cred-keep-original"]
    [cred_field field="form_messages" value=""]
        <div class="cred-field cred-field-rating">
            <label class="cred-label">
            Rating
            </label>
	    
            [cred_field field="rating" post="post" value="" urlparam=""]
	</div>
    [cred_field field="form_submit" value="Submit" urlparam=""]
[/credform]

5. You could then either create a Content template, or include the Custom Field and the CRED Form directly in your WP Editor (wehre you edit your content, like posts)

6. The user can then "rate" by choosing from a drop-down.

7. With Access Plugin, you can even decide what Roles can rate, and which roles can't.

You could render the rating CRED Form wherever you need it, and you can even filter your content afterwards with some Query Filters in a view.

Please consult also the screenshots about.

thank you. I will try this

Hi Beda, I will try implementing in the way you recommended.

But, could you kindly find out (with second tier support) if there is any third party option that we could integrate with Toolset in order to achieve this rating functionality in a different way?
