Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can get the sort by vote count to work with the GD STAR RATING plugin? I have added sorting parameters to a category list on my site but it still isn't ordering the posts by the number of thumbs up votes.


Does anyone have suggestions of what I should check? Are there options I need to set in the GD STAR RATING admin panel?

  • I had looked over the post that was suggested before I posted my question but I didn't see anything that would help me. For one thing, that post is over 3 years old and many of the links in it no longer work. Second, that post is talking about using code to do queries. I am trying to just use some URL parameters. – Michael Surkan Feb 22 '13 at 17:28
  • URL query strings don't do anything all by themselves. The code you want to avoid may be necessary. – s_ha_dum Feb 22 '13 at 19:50

I solved my problem. I needed to change the parameter "votes" to "thumbs". I also found it worked better to show the results in a descending order. Here is the working URL:
