Hi guys

Ive been looking for a Wordpress Review Theme and haven't found exactly what I'm looking for. I ended up spending around $129 on a review theme, but it was very limited as to what I could do.

I'm looking for a theme that shows the most popular reviewed item on the main page, showing rating stars and a very short description. Also, I wanted possibly the top 5 rated products below too (again, with star ratings).

Main thing i want is an option of having a thumbnail next to each item on the main page, aswel as on the product page.

Not sure if this is possible, but I wanted an option where if someone wanted to leave a review and star rate a product, they would need to sign up, and sign in to do so.

Can anybody help?

Thanks for looking!

Esh

    Which theme was that?

    Your probably going to need to download & install a ratings plugin for WordPress. Maybe something like:

    WordPress › WP-PostRatings WordPress Plugins
    WordPress › GD Star Rating WordPress Plugins

    You'll need to see if your theme has built-in support for thumbnails. As jackdeff said, the Thesis theme can handle this. Just look at the theme documentation / look around on google if people with the same theme have done it.

    Sign up/Sign in can be handled by WordPress itself. You might need to modify the plugin a bit, using WordPress conditional statements to check wether the user is logged in or not, only showing the rating to non logged-in users whilst allowing logged-in users to vote.

    Hope this helps a bit.

      They are still under maintenance as of now.

      DIYthemes is almost done with the site maintenance and will be online shortly. Thanks for your patience!
