Users based reviews for GD Rating System Pro plugin

User reviews for WordPress content
With this addon, you can easily implement the reviews posted by users into any post (supporting custom post types) using any available rating methods.
The review form contains standard elements, but it can be expanded through the use of filters and actions with additional fields used for the review.
Pros & Cons
Pros and Cons are optional and standard elements for reviews, and they allow users to list exactly what they like or dislike about the review topic.
The list of posted reviews in a post can be sorted based on different criteria, including the review rating, date, and how other users rated the reviews.
Typically, the review contains the exact rating user posted, with the review content, pros and cons list, rating percentage, and additional information.
Each post with reviews can show the rating overview that includes an average rating from reviews, and it can contain the post author’s own review information.
For each user review, other visitors can comment, using the normal WordPress comments system, including support for the threaded comments and moderation.
