How do I add stars to my post?
How can I put stars for rating the books I read from my p.c.? When I write a post on my android phone I can put stars into the post , but not when I do it on my laptop. When I review a book I want to say how many stars I think it´s worth.
The blog I need help with is petulareadsromance.wordpress.com.
I think this is what you’re looking for. The text you type to get a star is right at the bottom: http://en.support.wordpress.com/smilies/
So That looks like if I type :star: :star: :star: i will get three stars on the post .Is that right?
Just and added note. These star ratings are your visitor’s use
Nope that didn´t work. Just gave me the words and dots. I will just have to carry on only posting from my phone.
Check under Settings ->Writing that you have emoticons enabled.
Another option is to use a program like Windows Paint to create your own images for the different star ratings. You can then upload those into your media library and simply add them to posts as needed.
I will see if I can work it out with Windows paint . I´m only just learning how to use my lap top properly. Thank you all for your help.
You could try visual editor row 2 icon 7 for custom characters
There’s a star in the 4th row and 7th position there.
Thanks, timethief. I was looking for one there and couldn’t see it. I am overdue for a visit to the optometrist… ;-)
That’s so funny kokkieh because I’m visually challenged. :)
I know! In my defence, without my glasses I’m also blind as a bat. Not an excuse here, though – I’m near-sighted, so computer screens shouldn’t be a problem.
I thought of something else that so easy to do. You can copy and paste a star image
☀ for ☀
☆ for ☆
I think I will stick to doing it on my phone its so much easier. Thanks anyway for your ideas.
My browser is Chrome. I´m not looking for ratings for me. I want to put stars on the books I review to say what I think of the book. I have given up trying to do it on the computer. It´s much easier through the App on my phone.
