#4736 closed defect (invalid)

Plugin review submitted without star ratings

Reported by: anand.au14 Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Component: Support Forums Keywords:


On one of my plugin "Form Vibes" I received a review. It was full of praises so you can expect a 5 Star Rating.
But strange thing is that there was no rating at all.

Also it is displaying Total Review count as 7 while in the list under it, it is displaying all 8 review.
So it is also skipping this faulty review in counting total review.

Here is the link to the review

I have already requested to update the review, so it might show you some star rating later on.
I have attached the screenshot of the current state.

Looks like the user updated it to 4 stars.

Hi @Otto42

Yes user did updated the rating to 4 star. I am not concern about rating on my plugin.
What I am referring here is a possible bug that plugin/theme can be submitted without a star rating.

Review form doesn't allow you to submit a review with less than 1 star. So if such reviews are getting submitted then there is surely some missing validation on backend.

I suspect this was probably caused by #4275 or something similar to it.
