Extra Vote not only provides the ajax five-star rating feature to your Joomla content, but it allows you to insert those beautiful voting stars anywhere else inside of your article independently, so your users can rate specific parts of it, just by adding {extravote 1}, {extravote 2}, {extravote 3}, etc, in order to id every piece of content you want people to rate.

Excellent. Rich snippets appear in search engine listings (e.g. Google, Bing) after the pages have been crawled again.

Ease of use

Not a problem. If you want to see rich snippets on a page indexed by Google, submit the page again using Google's Webmaster tools.


Intuitive/not required


Quite good

I used this to: As a replacement for Joomla's standard voting plugin. Marking search engine entries with "star ratings" rich snippets.

It does what it says perfectly.

Ease of use

Very easy to configure, just remember to disable the Joomla "Content - Vote" plugin



I used this to: Personal blog. In my case i didn't immediately understand that I had to disable the "Content - Vote" plugin in order to have only extravote showing, otherwise both voting system were being displaied. It's explained in the documentation, I should have read it!
