    Would be nice with more options as to where they appear and how they appear(centered, left, right etc.)

    But overall a great addition and am looking foreward to more user feedback :)

      If you click on “advanced options” after activating the ratings, you’ll see some options to change alignment, color etc.

    Hello,

    Being new to the wordpress function, I tentatively think that this is a great idea if only for the fact that ordinary folks get to voice their opinion via this voting scheme. I don’t think it gets any better in terms of a democratic voice.

    I was kind of hoping that the user’s rating of a post would displayed in their comment and then show an aggregate total below the post itself.
