Is there a wordpress plugin that could do a search based on RATING STARS?

I am building a site using this theme:

It allows people to give a tripadvisor type star-based rating.

I'd like to be able to search by the rating or use it as one of the search criteria. Is it possible?

thanks in advance

You have MANY options for adding star rating. Below are 4 free plugins with 4+ star reviews:

WP-PostRatings is the most popular (and well reviewed) plugin -
Rating Widget is another very popular and well rated -
kk Star Ratings -
WP Customer Reviews -

With a quick search on CodeCanyon I was able to find this well reviewed (and relatively cheap) premium plugin -

@Brad, the question was for plugins that can be used to search by star ratings :)

@badwolff, pretty much any of the "good" search plugins should be able to do this.  Almost all ratings are saved as custom fields so as long as the search plugin can search custom fields, you can get what you what.

I personally use SearchWP and FacetWP on all sites where I have complex search needs.

These two plugins, combined with their add-ons, are awesome and absolutely can create a search where you use a widget in the sidebar to filter by rating or a even just a search by rating.

Jason thanks! They look very promising and I will test them within the week.

No conflicts?

Yes, I use them together.  SearchWP produces the initial search results, FacetWP filters them.  They are designed to work together.
