In short, Widgets and Uninstaller will be included in WP-PostRatings and WP-PostViews in version 1.20 onwards
WP-PostRatings widget supports “Most Rated” and “Highest Rated” posts and/or pages. WP-PostViews widget supports “Most Viewed” post and/or pages.
This should make quite a lot of users happy because they always wanted this feature instead of manually inputting php codes into the widget.
I have also added in an option page for WP-PostViews under “WP-Admin -> Options -> Post Views” in version 1.20. So now user can choose to let WP-PostViews count views from everyone, guest only or registered users only from the options page rather than manually editing the php code.
The release date hopefully will be around October 2007.
There is a bug in WP-PostRatings 1.11 together with WordPress 2.1.x which will not remember any ratings if you have rated the post. The bug seems to go away if you are using WordPress 2.2. I presumed there is some changes to the add_post_meta() and update_post_meta() in WP 2.2. I have since fixed the bug and now it works perfectly on WP 2.1.x and WP 2.2.
If you guys have previously downloaded WP-PostRatings 1.11, kindly re-download it again. Sorry for any inconvenience caused.
I have added 2 minor features to WP-PostRatings and WP-Polls. It is the ability to choose whether to show the loading image with text and the fading in and out of the poll/rating.
Some of you may not like the loading image with text, and now your wish came true, you can choose not to display it under the respective options menu.
For those CSS validating freaks, the opacity CSS value for wp-polls and wp-postratings will not pass CSS validation at W3. Now all you have to do is remove those lines in the respective css file and choose “No” for “Show Fading In And Fading Out Of Polls/Ratings”
One last thing before I end, as you all may know, if polls or ratings is embedded within the post, when viewing feed for the post, the post content might appear unsightly, so now let me gather your feedback to this issue with a poll.
Should I Remove Poll/Rating From Feed If It Is Embedded Within The Post?
