    I’m using adfly script to convert all links on my site to adfly links, but it’s messing up with the plugin.When i click on a star to rate a post, it gets me to adf.ly page.
    I can exclude certain links from the script that they don’t get converted:


    var adfly_id = 104254;
    var adfly_advert = ‘int’;
    var exclude_domains = ['example.com', 'yoursite.com',];

    but i don’t know what to type to prevent the script from assigning a link to the stars.

    Can you help me to fix this?

    Hi, what a great plugin.

    The only issue I am having is inserting through gdsr_gsr_insert_snippet is showing the element as hidden, even with the “Snippet will be renedered hidden on the page” option turned off.

    I can’t even style it “display:block!important” as it’s trumped by the in-page styling being generated by the plugin.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

      This is not from GD Star Rating at all. Rating snippet is working fine, and the snippet you posted is for users info cards not the rating.

        It’s what I see when I put a URL into Webmaster Tools Rich Snippets testing tool.

        First:

        Buy Rapid home HIV instant test kits, Instant HIV test kits …
        hivhomekit.com/product/hiv-instant-test-kits/ – Cached
        The excerpt from the page will show up here. The reason we can’t show text from your webpage is because the text depends on the query the user types.

        and then what I posted above. No stars

          You need to enable it in plugin options, make sure it is not hidden (with CSS styles) and than it is up to Google to use ratings or not. I am 100% it works, check some of the pages from this website in test tool to see. Here is the example:

          http://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/richsnippets?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.gdstarrating.com%2F2012%2F04%2F20%2Fgd-star-rating-1-9-17%2F

            It IS activated and it’s not hidden. It WAS working on this install until the upgrade prior to my post and then it stopped working. The stars show on the pages but are not being picked up by Google’s Rich snippets testing tool.

            It works on four other sites – two that use the same theme (Weaver II) – but on this one site it doesn’t.

            Is there a way to remove the plugin and perform a clean install without losing all of the ratings the site received when it was working?

            All sites have the exact same settings.

    I have errors. Google rich snippet testing tool shows…
    Warning: At least one field must be set for HatomEntry.
    Warning: Missing required field “entry-title”.
    Warning: Missing required field “updated”.
    Warning: Missing required hCard “author”.

    There are many instances of how to fix this with a google search. These answers require finding certain lines of code. However these lines of code are not findable.. so where are they?

    Which pages and what lines of code need to be updated for this to pass and be useable for the function for which it is intended?

    Such basic basic functionality should not have to be solved with paid support, it should be available here. There is no sense downloading a rating program that will not be functional.

    Thank you.

    PS – here is a copy of one solutions page…
    Snippet Errors:
    Warning: Missing required field “entry-title”.
    Warning: Missing required field “updated”.
    Warning: Missing required hCard “author”.

    For the missing field entry-title:

    And replace the line in bold with this:

    For the missing field updated:
    The error occurs because Google snippet wanted to know when was the post updated, so you have to search for the line containing the string “”, and modify the line to look as below:

    Published on

    For the missing field hCard author:
    This is more tricky as you need to include the elements from hCard microformat which are ”vcard” and ”fn”. Find the string , and modify the code accordingly.

      These errors are not related to rating snippet. Google extract all sorts of snippets, and these errors point to hCard/Author snippet.
