With the classic editor, when you create or update a page or a post, a box (metabox) will be available in the upper right corner where you’ll
be able to insert the overall rating.
With the new Guteneberg editor, just click on the «+» icon to add a block and search for Yasr Overall Rating.
You can either place the overall rating automatically at the beginning or the end of a post (look in «Settings»
-> «Yet Another Stars Rating: Settings»), or wherever you want in the page using the shortcode [yasr_overall_rating] (easily added through the visual editor).

Votos de visitantes

You can give your users the ability to vote, pasting the shortcode [yasr_visitor_votes] where you want the stars to appear.
If you’re using the new Gutenberg editor, just click on the «+» icon to add a block and search for Yasr Visitor Votes
Again, this can be placed automatically at the beginning or the end of each post; the option is in «Settings» -> «Yet Another Stars Rating: Settings».

This is working great, 5 stars !, but i just need one rating to my whole site, not for each post/page, i will put the shortcode on my footer element, shown to entire site. Please provide a way to save the rating _only_ to a certain page/post id like [yasr_visitor_votes page_id=13], where the static page for my homepage, has id = 13 Thank you 😊🙏

The ratings functions are extraordinary, and the whole product design appears to be top-notch. Most important in my case, however, was the support and responsiveness. I purchased the pro version primarily for the user reviews feature (more than the ratings feature) which was probably a dumb decision on my part since the product is first-and-foremost a ratings plugin. Dario was immediately responsive to my questions — I mean responding to my email in three minutes! Ultimately, I asked for a refund because the plugin didn’t meet my particular needs on the reviews side, and I was granted one – again, within minutes! So, while the product ended up not working out for me, I was totally impressed by the professionalism of the team. Clearly, they care first and foremost about their users’ satisfaction. Highly recommended vendor!
