I'm no coder. gave this a try to add review capability to my site. tried all the major plugins out there, but the pro versions got all the functionality. This plugin just ads that same pro level user reviews, total score, review display abilities with simple short codes & minimal settings. I'm more than impressed how neat & how great the plugin works. the best thing is you can add this to pages or posts. so you have the great category, tag features of wordpress posts combined with a neat & smooth plugin. looking forward to learn a bit of css to add a personal touch into this.
