I recently tried a few ratings plugins and have installed Rate My Post. It places a row of 5 stars at the bottom of posts to allow rating.
Its imperfect in the theme but most of that isn’t important. The issue I’d like to address is that little balls are showing up behind and to the left of each star icon. This appears to be an artifact of the image border feature? (which I have set to none) Ran into a somewhat similar issue prior.
They’re at the bottom of this post for example, just above the social media icons.
