Star Rating

This plugin allows your visitors to rate your posts using star ratings. By default they can rate the posts out of five stars, but it's easy to change that value in the backoffice plugin settings. Users with JavaScript enabled can vote without reloading the page using an AJAX call. The plugin works when JavaScript is disabled by the reader, too. By default, each vote is checked against a list of IP addresses to make sure that it's not a duplicate, but this can be disabled in the backoffice.

Great plugin, I was looking it for a long time.

By the way after install, the vote system works fine but not the AJAX effects, like info or vote confirmation. Any tip

You can check it on http://www.lacuchara.es

Thanks in advance.

Hi again,

On IE before cast a vote the info icon appears broken and after vote it looks good.

I’d like to make the stars smaller and to center them. Is this possible?

Would be great if this plugin would change a user who has already rated’s rating, instead of just showing a “you have already rated” dialogue.

Great plug-in, I’m already using it. Thanks.

I have one question. Right now, the titles of the top rated posts are “stacking” on top of each other.

Is there a code or setting that will truncate the titles or space the top-rated posts based on title length?

Thanks again.

After voting, shouldn’t the image change to reflect the rating average? It always shows no stars.

guys, all those ’stackings’ ‘no image’ etc etc, issues are because of ‘your skin’s ‘li’ properties, and the plugin works even with the latest version (2.4.2) cheers

I had no luck following the instructions where it says “Put this one in the post loop inside the bSmallPrint div or just below the post title:”

Using evoCamp, there is no bSmallPrint. I put it in on line 70, but it doesn’t work, can anyboldy help me?

I noticed a lot of votes coming from bots crawling our site. It may be worth adding rel="nofollow” to the anchors rendered for each star link.

Great plugin!

d’oh looks like I didn’t fully understand nofollow, disregard previous comment. When I dug in I did see your comment as well, going to see what it takes to implement that.

With evopress you shoud edit posts.main.php and add the line there (it was hard at the beginning).

Thank You, i like the plug in,
but we must hope that those who vote our blog will give us full stars, otherwise it would be counterproductive but it can be an incentive to write good post :)

Hi Danny,

in a further blog I have used your starrating-plugin. Now I wanted to download it again, clicked on the name of your plugin and came to a website with explanations about installing and other helpful instructions. The download-link there brought me to www.sourceforge, but the title of the zip-file there was “capture 1.8.."??? Is this really the correct file? Sorry for my bad Englisch (am a German girl, Bavaria)…

Many thanks for your answer and help!

Yours, Karin
