Filter gdrts_render_single_thumbs_rating_args_vote_from_user is used to filter the parameters used for the rendering of user vote text in the single rating block for Thumbs Rating method templates. This filter has several arguments:

  • $atts: the array of parameters to filter
  • $render_object: the instance of the render object
  • $vote: vote object
  • $vote_value: only the numeric vote value
  • $logged: datetime of the vote
  • $_remaining: number of remaining attempts to change the vote or vote
  • $_vote_limit: this can be single, multi, revote

Variable $vote_value can be +1 or -1, and if you want to change it (for display purposes only), you can use this filter:

Array $atts contains following elements:

  • before: HTML to show before the rating text.
  • after: HTML to show after the rating text.
  • vote: the string showing the vote. The format depends on the $_vote_limit argument.
  • remaining: the string showing the number of remaining attempts. The format depends on the $_vote_limit argument, and it will be empty for ‘single’ vote limit or if there are no attempts remaining.

Example to change strings

add_filter('gdrts_render_single_thumbs_rating_args_vote_from_user', 'custom__gdrts_render_single_thumbs_rating_args_vote_from_user', 10, 7);
function custom__gdrts_render_single_thumbs_rating_args_vote_from_user($atts, $obj, $vote, $vote_value, $logged, $_remaining, $_vote_limit) {
  if ($_vote_limit == 'single' || $_vote_limit == 'revote') {
    $atts['vote'] = sprintf('You voted <strong>%s</strong>, %s ago.', $vote_value, human_time_diff(strtotime($logged));
  } else if ($_vote_limit == 'multi') {
    $atts['vote'] = sprintf('You previously voted <strong>%s</strong>, %s ago.', $vote_value, human_time_diff(strtotime($logged));

  if ($_remaining > 0 && $_vote_limit != 'single') {
    if ($_vote_limit == 'revote') {
      $atts['remaining'] = sprintf(_n("You can change vote %s more time.", "You can change vote %s more times.", $_remaining), $_remaining);
    } else if ($_vote_limit == 'multi') {
      $atts['remaining'] = sprintf(_n("You can vote %s more time.", "You can vote %s more times.", $_remaining), $_remaining);

  return $atts;
