Update: WordPress.org plugin now includes ratings

Posted by


We have finally added the ratings feature to the WordPress.org plugin (version 1.7.6).

This has been available on WordPress.com for a while and it has been well requested for the .org platform since. You will now be able to add a rating widget to all your posts, pages and comments.

When you update or install the PollDaddy plugin, you will now be presented with a new ‘Ratings’ menu, above the ‘Polls’ menu.


You can see a full explanation on how it all works over on the WordPress.com support site.


Also, check out this video for a demo of how to use this new feature.
