Which branch, version are you on? Also, the support period has passed so we won’t guarantee a fix.

@angus @fzngagan i have a food recipe forum. and i want my users to vote on topics and recipes posted by others users in form of posts. and i want to show these star ratings via schema.org so google can recognise this structure data and show the starts on my google search results page. How can i do this, does this plugin support google structure data already ?

Also, is this plugin compatible with discourse solved and discourse question and answer plugins, so that other users can also vote up or down other people posts/topics along with stars?

We have a new admin panel for the ratings stuff now. If you go to yoursiteurl/admin/plugins, you’ll see a Ratings tab where you can tweak all the settings. For enabling on the whole site , you’ll have to enable the said rating criterion for all the categories. Do get back if you get any difficulty in doing that.

I’ve left a review on your PR. Can you make the suggested change? Thanks for pointing out the issue.

There’s one PR to be merged soon related to schema.org data which will make it work reliably.

For compatibility, do try and let us know. Its a dynamic ecosystem so you’ll know better when you try :wink: .

So do i wait for the new update and then install this? or if i have installed this plugin already, can i get its plugin updates directly from admin GUI?

You can install and get the update later via gui. Just that our free support period is first 5 days of every month and you’ll have to wait a few days if something is broken.

Okay good. so best case is to try plugins in first 5 days of any month and inform u guys of any bugs or compatibility issues if any.?

If i install pavilion plugins after 5th of the month days, then i have wait more?

Also, i have installed the rating plugin, and enabled it, but i dont see the settings anywhere to enable topic ratings on a category or on a specific tag. I have checked tag settings, category settings, and ratings plugin settings, but didnt find to do this anywhere. can u help?

Ok, I’ll do some research myself and figure out what the correct schema.org metadata should be.

I’ll try to check today but no promises. Our support period is first 5 days of the month :slight_smile:

Also check /admin/plugins/ratings for setting up the ratings.

@fzngagan I followed your steps, but i do not see any way to create a rating type in admin panel, please see below:

all i see is this

Where do i configure adding new rating types and set them on categoires or tags ? i also went to categories settings but i dont see any option to enable to add new ratings type on tags or categories.
