    We recently purchased and activated your Classipress Rate Author Pro plugin and everything seems to work, except that the feedback doesn’t appear in the “Moderate” list under the CP Rate Author menu.

    If moderation is turned on, the feedback is nowhere to be be found. With moderation off, the feedback appears in the front-facing author profile. In addition, the feedback count is correct on the bottom of the Moderation page, so it appears that the feedback is being written to the DB.

    Most recent versions of Classipress and plugin installed. NOTE: this is running on a multi-site (again, core and MS files up to date).

    Any guidance wold be very much appreciated.

    Many thanks,

      Hi Rob,

      Can you send us the URL to your site? Also, if you have a development site you can give us admin access to that would be great.

      Please send details to support (@) wprabbits.com

    I your plugin is ok, but its not comfortable to write a review at the listing owner page, because its a little bit hide from the users focus.

    Please make it possible to place a button/link or a popup with “write a review” just from the listing detail page.
    With that feature your plugin would be nearly perfect.

    Do your plugin also create a rich snippet review for google?

    Hi Rubencio! OK! I want to buy the PRO version. But first I need to know if I have the right of no cost to ClassiPress 3.5 version and an “idea” when you have version 3.5 ready.



    • rubencio


      Hi Claudio,

      We’ve been testing the actual version during the last week and it is already compatible with latest ClassiPress 3.5.1 version so we will be updating the product page within a couple of days in order to clarify this.

      Concerning the updates yes, you can download updates for any product you purchase on the store during 365 days after purchase made.

      Best regards!

    Purchase the plugin 2 month ago “the latest version” I was unable to install it. never receive an answer from the support site 8 weeks of waiting…

    when trying to activate it I have always this error:
    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected end of file in D:\inetpub\apps_site\3389\occasions\wordpress-4.2.2\wordpress\wp-content\plugins\cprate-plugin\admin\cprate-admin.php on line 781

    on a clean install with the classipress 3.4.1 and WordPress 4.4.2

    Maybe i miss something, I tried three times on 3 differents install of WordPress with the same result,

    the problem may come from my server but i cannot say nobody answer my questions on the support site.

    I give one star because of the bad support…

    To get this plugin to work, I modified the code in the instructions and added on lines 43 and 44 to author.php file. The modified code is below:

    ID, $hide->false); } ?>

    Hope this helps!

    i was very happy that I have found your plugin, I ordered directly.
    But after the installation and activation I become an error.
    I have found the errors (33 counts) in the script “cprate-admin.php” and replace “?>>” to “?> >”. I can activated the plugin and wordpress give me true result, but in the list the plugin was “deactived”, I can do this any time more, with the same result.

    I use ClasiPress Theme in version 3.5.7 (sorry, the last version).
    My ticket was 7 days old, sorry, but please help me and create a plugin “certifed” version for the last version of classipress theme.
