    New features

    • Ratings now support decimals and in the front end the displayed rating also shows half star when available. ( The half star can be disabled with a hook. More at documentation)
    • Terms and conditions feature is now added to the theme. In Theme Settings you will find a new tab called “Terms and Conditions” where you’ll find all the settings regarding this feature.

Also in every review under the tab “Review additional info” you will find a new textarea called “Terms and conditions text” where you can add the terms text for each review independally.
