Major Update for the WP Rich Snippets Plugin and Add-ons

It has been a few months since we’ve released the WP Rich Snippets plugin, we’ve put a lot of effort to bring new features and modifications to the plugin to make it work for everyone. We’ve reached version 1.0.0b91, which still a beta.

Thanks to all our active members and their great feedback, we plan to bring out the final version after adding a few other new features and make sure the plugin is working great.

What’s new in version 1.0.0b91

The most noticeable modification in version 1.0.0b91 is the depreciation of tabs, so user reviews are no longer display in a tab, it will just show on page below content.

Also, the older versions of the plugin was saving user rating in comment meta with a specific meta key, we’ve changed the meta key to “rating”, this will allow us to integrate with other plugins like WooCommerce, we are working on the integration add-on to be released soon.

You can view a list of changes of version 1.0.0b91.

Customizer

WP Reviews Update: V1.1.9 with Default Repeated Criteria Fields and More

I’ve been asked several times to include this feature and I had it for long time on my to do list. Finally, the default repeated criteria fields has been added to the WordPress Reviews plugin.

I’ve added a new tab to the plugin settings page called Criteria, under this tab you will find the Default Criteria settings. You will be able to create a new set of Criteria for your reviews, and enable it on every new review on your site. Also, there is a new update button for the criteria, this button will update criteria on all reviews (all old reviews), but of course you have to deal with care when using this feature, you don’t want to lose the data your users already added to the reviews.  [Read more…]
