Časté dotazy

What should I do if structured data do not show in search result pages.

Please have patience as we have no control over how google or any search engine indexes your pages. It might take some days or even weeks for the robots to crawl the ratings.

I have been using a verion of this plugin prior to v3. Is it safe for me to update?

All previous ratings and options will be preserved. However, since v3 has been renewed from scratch, we do not support downgrading to v2 after upgrading to v3.

I found a bug or want to contribute.

The source of this plugin is located at Github. Feel free to post an issue or submit a pull request.

Since the last update, if you deactivate automatic placement and use manual placement with shortcode instead, the stars will appear HUGE and there is no way to reduce their size. Checked in several websites. I guess they will fix this bug soon, but right now I have had to uninstall the plugin.

The plugin is great, please continue with the development. Other star rating plugins for WordPress have very limited customization options compared to yours.

Almost in all sites i use the kk star plugin but with new update everything is broken on my sites and rankings dropped critically. Please don't use this plugin instead you can use other similar plugins
