Star Rating Block

Permalink 1 user found helpful

As part of another larger project I've produced a Star Rating Block for C5

It's very simple and features...

* AJAX to submit rate (no page refresh)
* Tracks IP Addresses (1 rate per IP Address)
* Must be logged in to rate.
* Did I mention It's FREE !!!

Not sure if this is of use to anyone else... however since it uses AJAX/Javascript, php includes & other stuff it may be a good learning tool for someone.

The block is attached and a demo link (with download link) is below...

That's great. You should submit it to the marketplace so it gets reviewed the the Peer Review Board and once it gets approved you'll get some karma points and your very own add-on page for it. Good job.

Yea Lucas I agree.

Jimbo you did a great job. I am adding it to one of my sites this week. Go with Lucas's recommendation and submit it to the Marketplace.

Updated to V2

Note that updating will cause all votes to zero.

You could maintain your rating by backing up the database table btJjStarRating and restoring from there. bID is the block id, on a per page basis (I think) and the total_votes and total_value are the values you would repopulate on a bID basis.

Correct, JimboJetset?

Unfortunately not no... V1.2 stored each vote against the block ID but in V2 this is no longer the case. V2 uses a unique combination of both the block ID and page ID to store votes. This was done to allow people with hundreds of pages to add the block to a common template and use the child update feature to put the block on all child pages. V1.2 could not do this because it was tied soley to the block ID.
So although V2 will not delete existing votes it won't recognise them either. Sorry..

I like the updated version. Nice work :)
I haven't used mine yet, but will upgrade before doing do.

Shame the update will wipe out old votes....
Anyway to add a function where you could add votes as you place a block as an option.

I know that's cheating on votes, but would help with updates.

The block is not working with concrete 5.4. Gives Adodb exception.

Replace "btJjStarRatingVotes2" to "btJjStarRatingVotes" everywhere in models/rating.php

Had the same issue, fixed it by selecting "custom templates" for the rating block and then "Align Left".
