Multiple Rating Fields
Comment Rating Field Pro allows any number of rating groups to be used on the WordPress comment form. Each group can have an unlimited number of rating fields.
Using the Post Type and Post Type Taxonomy Term filters, each group can be targeted to display on specific areas of the web site.
Google Rich Snippet Schema Support
Each rating field group can have a schema type defined. Visitors can see ratings on your Google search results, which helps drive more traffic to your web site.
Schema types tell search engines what the reviews are about to further help with rankings – Comment Rating Field Pro supports Creative Work, Offer, Organization, Place and Product.
Retina Ready, Any Color and Size
Editable styling options include star/bar color for the foreground, background and highlighted star states.
SVG icons are used to ensure ratings render pixel perfect on and device or computer, and the star size can be specified.
Rating Field Options
Rating Fields on your comments form come with several options, including:
- Maximum Rating: From 3 to 10 stars
- Precision: Average Ratings can be rounded to 0, 1 or 2 decimal places. Optionally allow reviewers to add half / .5 ratings.
- Position: Add rating fields at the top of your comment form, before or after the comment field
- Limit Ratings: Only allow reviewers to leave one rating per Post. Optionally disable ratings on comment replies
- Roles: Limit which WordPress User Roles can add ratings
Both average ratings and/or rating breakdowns can be displayed anywhere on your WordPress web site, including your Post’s content, excerpt, comments, Post RSS feeds and Comment RSS feeds.
Display options include:
- Enabling or Disabling ratings to be displayed on content, excerpts, comments and RSS feeds
- Positioning: Display ratings above or below your content
- Styling: Display star ratings, with or without grey ‘unfilled’ stars
- Display Average Rating: Enable or disable, with options to label the Average Rating
- Display Total Ratings: Display the total number of ratings made by reviewers
- Display Breakdown: Enable or disable a breakdown of ratings for each field
- CSS ID and Class: Optionally specify a HTML ID and class(es) to attribute to the rating output, which you can then target with your own custom CSS for more styling.
"Amazon Style" Bars Breakdown
When display ratings on Posts, offer greater transparency in your reviews and show visitors exactly how many reviewers gave a particular rating with the bar style output.
This displays each available rating, with a bar showing which percentage of reviewers left that overall rating.
For more control, there’s an advanced shortcode which can be inserted anywhere on your WordPress site that accepts shortcodes – for example, in a widget or a different Page.
Shortcode options match those listed in the Display Ratings functionality above – again allowing complete control over the output style, displaying a breakdown, using stars or bars and more.
The shortcode also provides
This ensures you can display the rating for any Post, Page or Custom Post Type anywhere on your WordPress web site.
Top Rated Posts Widget
Display the top rated Posts, Pages or items for a specific Taxonomy Term in your WordPress Sidebars, using the CRFP Top Rated Posts widget.
Filter and Sort Comments by Rating
Using the “Amazon Style” Bars Breakdown, visitors can click on a rating, displaying all comments with that rating. Comments can also be sorted by date or rating, both high to low and low to high.
This is useful if your product or service has a lot of reviews, and users want to quickly see positive, negative or recent reviews.
Sort Post Lists and Taxonomies by Rating
When viewing a Post Type Archive (such as your latest Posts, or your Blog Page), or Posts matching a specific Category, Comment Rating Field Pro can order Posts by rating, instead of the WordPress default date ordering.
For developers, we provide extensive documentation on custom functions, which can be used in your Theme or Plugin to:
- Display the average rating,
- Enable rating support on bespoke comment systems
- Output comment ratings on bespoke comment systems.
This avoids using shortcodes, enhancing the display control and site performance.
We also provide a number of documented actions and filters on all output, allowing you to customise markup to suit your specific needs.
Jetpack, WooCommerce and Simple Comment Editing Compatible
Comment Rating Field Pro is compatible with Jetpack Comments and WooCommerce, meaning you can still allow visitors to leave ratings whilst writing a comment on your Post.
We’re also compatible with the Simple Comment Editing Plugin, allowing your users to edit their ratings when editing their comments.

Frequently Asked Questions
What are the hosting requirements?
You must have a self-hosted WordPress site (not WordPress.com), running at least version 4.5 and PHP 5.3.
Do I have to pay every year?
To receive ongoing support and updates, you must renew your license every year (unless purchasing a Lifetime license). This is optional, and if you choose not to renew, you can still use the Plugin.
Can I upgrade my license later?
Yes. You can upgrade an active (non expired) license, only paying the pro rata difference between the upgraded license and your current license.
Do you offer a free trial?
You're welcome to purchase a license, and if within 14 days it is not suitable, simply request a refund - no questions asked.
Can I use this Plugin on client sites?
Either purchase a Lifetime license, or have your clients purchase their own license. If purchasing a Lifetime license, support requests must come from the license holder - not your clients.
