Star Rating Block

The Star Rating block allows any site author to add reviews to the site.

Select the Star Rating block from the inserter icon to add it to your site.

The blocks are solely for the author to create and insert into a post; they do not solicit feedback or polling of users reading the post.


The Star Rating block is available on all Jetpack-connected sites.

Adding the Block

You can add the Star Rating block by searching and/or selecting it from the Jetpack section of the block selector:

See Jetpack Blocks for detailed instructions on adding blocks.

Half-Symbol Ratings

If you are having trouble deciding between 4-star and 5-star ratings, you can give a half-star rating by clicking twice on the rating.

Block Toolbar

Click in the block to display the block toolbar.

You can use the alignment button in the toolbar to add the ratings to the left, right or center relative to the page.

Block Settings

Every block has specific options in the editor sidebar in addition to the options found in the block toolbar. If you do not see the sidebar, click the ‘cog’ icon next to the Publish button. Here’s what you should see for the Star Rating block:

The block sidebar for the Star Rating block


In the Styles section of the block options, you can select either Filled or Outlined stars.


By default, the Star Rating block includes 5 stars. You can make this more or less using the slider in the Settings area of the sidebar. The minimum amount of stars you can set is 0.

Color Settings

You can customize the star color using any of the defaults in the Color Settings section. Alternatively, you can use the Custom Color link to use any other color.


The advanced tab lets you add a CSS class to your block, allowing you to write custom CSS and style the block as you see fit.
