    Hi,

    I need a little help to install “WP-PostRatings” plugin in Graphene theme.

    When I install and activate this plugin I must to place this code somewhere:

    You may place it in archive.php, single.php, post.php or page.php also.
    Find: <?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
    Add Anywhere Below It (The Place You Want The Ratings To Show): <?php if(function_exists('the_ratings')) { the_ratings(); } ?>

    In my old theme was in single.php, but in this theme I don’t know where.

    I want to shows up the ratings after the post/text (before the line and tags and social buttons /look the demo of your theme/), but I can’t find in which php page is this. Pls tell me where to put this code in Graphene 🙂

    Thank you!

    Actually using “WP-PostRatings” plugin in Graphene is even easier. No need to edit any theme file. Just use Action Hook widgets.

    Go to Graphene Options –> Advanced –> Action Hooks Widget Areas and select graphene_before_post_content or any other appropriate action hook in loop-single.php. Then go to Appearance –> Widgets and drag a Text Widget to Graphene Before Post Content widget area and add [ratings] to it. That’s it! You can also use a PHP Widget with this function,

    <?php
    if(function_exists('the_ratings')) { the_ratings(); }
    ?>

    ?>

    One more stupid question:

    Where exactly to put this function?

    When I add [ratings] in Text Widget it shows literally “[ratings]” in the blog 😀 And if I put the function there i’ts show me nothing… I don’t get it …yet 🙂

    And with PHP Widget it doesn’t work. The stars are inactive…

    Do you have a child theme? If yes, try adding this code to your child theme’s functions.php file,

    <?php
    function graphene_show_the_ratings {
    if ( function_exists('the_ratings') ) {
    the_ratings();
    }
    }

    add_action('graphene_before_post_content', 'graphene_show_the_ratings');
    ?>

    When I add this:

    Quote:
    <?php function graphene_show_the_ratings { if ( function_exists(‘the_ratings’) ) { the_ratings(); } } add_action(‘graphene_before_post_content’, ‘graphene_show_the_ratings’); ?>

    The result is:

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '{', expecting '(' in C:xampphtdocswordpresswp-contentthemesgraphene-childfunctions.php on line 2

    Oh! My bad. Here is the correct code,

    <?php
    function graphene_show_the_ratings() {
    if ( function_exists('the_ratings') ) { the_ratings(); }
    }
    add_action('graphene_before_post_content', 'graphene_show_the_ratings');
    ?>

    Ok, it’s works. But the stars are separated with space between them and with grey border.

    And the ratings are shows up in the top of the post and I want to shows after the post/text. 🙂

    Also when I vote:

    Warning: Creating default object from empty value in C:xampphtdocswordpresswp-contentpluginswp-postratingswp-postratings.php on line 183

    this is the wp-postratings.php.

    I can’t do anything for plugin’s error! Ask the developer of that plugin for support.

    If you want to move the rating to bottom of the post, replace

    add_action('graphene_before_post_content', 'graphene_show_the_ratings');

    with

    add_action('graphene_after_post_content', 'graphene_show_the_ratings');

    in the above code.
