Plugins for aReview

When you install and activate the theme, you'll notice that a message will appear asking you to install two plugins: Custom Field Suite and Yet Another Stars Rating. You only need to install these plugins if you want to run your website in review mode. If you just want to use aReview as a simple blog theme, you don't need them.

  • Custom Field Suite - you can choose between product review mode, movie review mode, and game review mode. Click on the one you're interested in and copy the import code, than go to Field Groups > Tools and import it. After you've done this, you'll notice when you edit a post that you'll have a set of options. They're pretty self explanatory so configure them to your liking.
  • Yet Another Stars Rating - first of all, go to the YASR settings and make sure this option Show "Overall Rating" in Archive Page? is set to Yes. After that, edit your posts and assign them a rating and insert the shortcode [yasr_overall_rating] where you want it to appear.

You should also install and run the Regenerate Thumbnails plugin.
