#2137 new defect

Full Reviews no longer show when looking at ratings.

Reported by: jdailey Owned by:

Component: Support Forums Keywords: ui-feedback ux-feedback


The new UI looks nice but removing the review body text makes it very difficult to look through and compare reviews. I am only seeing the ability to click into every review based on its title. Many of the review titles are the same and don't say much about the users experience and why they liked or disliked the plugin/theme they are writing about.

If it is a space issue could we show at least first sentence with a read more option? This would give people investigating a plugin a better sense of what the author likes or dislikes about the plugin.

  • Component changed from General to Plugin Directory

I assume you are talking about the plugin directory here? Going to change the component to reflect this, let me know if not the case.

  • Component changed from Plugin Directory to Support Forums

It's about the Support Forums theme.

The old one used to show review text in general list: 2137.PNG, the new one doesn't: 2137.2.PNG.

That said, the new plugin directory currently displays the latest reviews on the plugin page: 2137.3.PNG, although that might be changed in #2632.

I'd like to mark this as worksforme at this time.

The plugin directory now provides the most recent reviews in full body text, if users wish to dive deeper they get an archive view from a forum which seems like a good compromise to me, but am open to input on this.
