Hesham suggested Genisis as a good theme that supports this plugin… I was eyeing Volatyl http://wpleaders.com/themes/volatyl/ but these are still beyond my budget because all I’m missing is the ability to put the “Top Rated Reviews” widget on a secondary page and the ability to have banner ads, so I can’t justify spending that much. Although, I may be able to do this with 2012 and I don’t even know. If there is nothing cheaper with same functionality, are there any others in the same price range that you recommend when I am ready to spend $50-100?
Another thing: does anyone know if I can make my site logo show on facebook when I share to facebook using the facebook plugin and the 2012 theme? Would be much appreciated – I know it’s way off topic.
Thanks a bunch.

It doesn’t really matter what WordPress Theme you are using, a well coded Theme should work fine. I haven’t tried Volatyl Framework with the plugin, but I think it will work just fine as this Theme is well coded. I recommend Genesis framework for 2 main reasons:
1- It’s a very solid Theme that you can count on.
2- It has hooks and filters that will help you do things the way you want.
Most of issues happen when:
– Using a Theme that has a custom WordPress commenting form (that has different id or classes that the defaults)
– Using a Bootstrap based Theme, which could conflict with the WP Reviews plugin. (there is an option in the plugin settings to stop loading Bootstrap from the plugin in this case)
– Using a responsive Theme that has same classes names but with a custom styles, this also can conflict with the plugin.
A few things to stay away of as these could cause a conflict:
– Running another plugin that implements review markups.
– Using a Theme that has reviews functionality.
– – –
For you other off-topic question, try the Facebook debug tool:
This should tell you what’s missing and point you to any errors. Also, you need to add Open Graph code to the HTML page head, so that when someone shares your site it will grab the correct details, an example of this (it’s how I did it on this site):
<meta property="og:image" content="[url to image]" /> <meta property="og:title" content="[page name]" /> <meta property="og:description" content="[content description]" />
I hope this helps in any way.

Thank you Hesham! Is the Genesis framework user friendly for non-programmers? For example I have no idea where the HTML Page Head is, as you suggested.
Is there a cheaper theme you know or can find me that will allow me to put widgets on a secondary page (not only on sidebar) and that will allow me to have head banners and take WordPress out of the bottom of the site?

Yes, it is widely used and I know many avid WordPress who are doing great with Genesis Theme, and they have a great support and a ton of tutorials online, so if you don’t know how to add HTML to the page Head, simply ask support and they will help you out.
I don’t know cheaper Themes, but Genesis will allow you to do whatever you want on your website as a strong Framework.
