I have Boldy theme on a 3.2.1 instance of Wordpress.

I have installed the plugin WP-PostRatings.

I want it to show up on my individual posts when posts are viewed individually on a page.

  • I installed and activated the plugin.
  • I added
    if(function_exists('the_ratings')) { the_ratings(); } ?>
    within my single.php file, as shown in pastebin.

However, nothing is happening with my blog posts when viewed as single pages.

Have I put the code in the wrong place/file?

few things you can check

  1. the code is within the loop
  2. the plugin is activated
  3. check plugin option page and select a rating type
  4. check page source code and see what is being generated.
  5. if all ok. your css is not blocking any rating star tag.
  6. de-activate, uninstall, delete and re-install the plugin
  • 1. yes, right under 2. yes 3. Done - tried others 4. No mention of ratings where id expect it (Above post title) 5. Do not think so... 6. Tried and same issue.

ok some more thoughts. do you have

<?php wp_footer(); ?>

in your theme's footer.php

do you have any lightbox plugin installed?

deactivate all plugins except rating, then does it work?
