Custom text for "wpdiscuz-stars-label"
Hi friends! We've been LOVING wp discuz and were absolutely delighted to discover the star rating feature (how did we not realize this sooner??)
Right now when we choose to display the ratings on the page, the result is something like: (5/3) That's not a great look for our readers, who are probably wondering wtf that means. Is there a way for us to customize that text output?
Thank you @jimmyatbyjillee,
I'm sorry, but you cannot customize this. This is already in our to-do list to change the design of the ratings. Probably we'll add it in next version release.
Dang, no way to do it at all, even via css? We would really love to be able to do that. There is a plugin called "kk star ratings" and they give you the ability to customize as shown below. It makes for a much more easy-to-understand design (from a user standpoint,) since it really doesn't make any sense for the average user to see (4.8/71) next to the stars on a post...
We hired a developer on Upwork who developed a custom plugin that changes the output of the wpdiscuz labels. You can see it in action here: https://www.onegoodthingbyjillee.com/how-to-make-powerful-homemade-shower-cleaner/
Unfortunately the way the star rating schema markup is output, we're not seeing stars next to our posts on Google, so we're working on figuring out a way to get this markup (AggregateRating) into our Article markup.
But as far as the label, the solution we have worked great. If you like, I'm more than happy to get you in touch with the dev that helped us.
