author-hreview-plugin-release-11

Hey everyone, we’ve released a new update for the Author hReview plugin. This update was a result to a member query, he asked for more control of which post type to enable reviews on, so we did it.

By default; reviews are enabled on posts and pages, but you can enable reviews on any specified Custom Post Type on your site. The changes we’ve made is to allow you to enable reviews on any custom post type including posts and pages.

The new settings looks like this:

author-hreview-custom-post-type-settings

Now you can upgrade to the latest version of Author hReview plugin within your account.

Note: If you already have reviews on posts and pages, then mostly you will need to enable them within the plugin settings after upgrade, so just make sure you tick posts or pages checkbox then save settings, and you are good to go.
