Comment Rating WordPress Plugin

Posted by


Moderating comment by admin is time taking procedure and tired task.In order to stiop moderating and Blog readers can decide which comment should be display.

With Comment Rating we can enable “user moderated content”. This plugin automatically embeds clickable images in comments using AJAX javascript. It allows visitors to rate comments in Like OR Dislike. The votes are displayed along with the comments in either two numbers, one combined, or both.

Once ratings are in place the comments can be display. Poorly rated comments can be hidden in a click-to-see link. Highly-rated comments can be highlighted. Hotly-debated comments can also be highlighted to draw attention and encourage more votes and comments.

All three kinds of comments are configurable. So styling can be done with background color, opacity,fonts, etc. on the comment as well as the entire comment box.

This plugin allows wordpress as a general CMS in a Web 2.0 fashion. User generated content can be rated and their display by other users.
