Summary of this Tutorial:

Start by installing and activating the WP-PostRatings plugin then go to Ratings, Rating Options to configure.

You can pick the ratings image to use and them pick the max ratings, and then update for ajax styling, ratings permissions, and loging method then save changes.

Next, decide where we want the ratings to show. If we just want the ratings on select posts you can add the shortcode to the post.

If you want it on all posts you would need to add some code to your archive, page, index, single, and loop page or at least the ones your theme has.

Now your visiotrs can vote on your posts and you’ll be able to see the rating.

  1. Hey, it looks like a really good plugin, but unfortunately I'm unable to set it up for some reason. :/ I'm pasting the "<?php if(function_exists('the_ratings')) { the_ratings(); } ?>" line in every file you've mentioned and nothing is happening, I' m still not able to vote on my website. Could you explain where exactly to put that line?
