Rating 4 YaBB 2.4

Let your members rate whatever you want - mods - movies - books - games - music...
Create items for users to rate (or download and rate) or let one membergroup or all members create items. Show rating, votes, clicks (if URL provided) and graphics bar.

Clicking on a bar, will open an "Item Breakdown" screen.

May 10th, 2009 at 8:10pm: beta 0.1.1a - changed text element to comlpy with german language files. Changes are in "Ratings.lng" and "Ratings.pl".

Feb 22nd, 2010 at 11:00pm - beta 0.3 - changed a lot of code for xhtml validity. All changes since 0.1.1 are in Ratings.pl, Ratings.lng, NewSettings.pl and Settings_Main.pl

Feb 24th, 2010 at 3:26am - beta 0.3.1 - more code cleanup to make it xhtml valid and fixed rate bars align correctly in older IE browsers.

Feb 26th, 2010 at 1:32am - beta 0.4 - more code cleanup and layout changes. Fixed page index.

I've just installed it on a test board... Looks great.

It will come in handy for a music forum I've done to rate albums.

Thanks for the Mod!

Just one thing I've noticed...

If you don't fill in the information correctly when trying to Add, Edit and Delete Items, the 'System Information' errors are blank...

Thx. Derek - fixed. New package attached to first post. All changes are in "Ratings.pl" and "Error.lng".

Strange! Just for the record. I don't remember ever giving you permission to update this mod.

I don't really see which features that should be?

  • Moderators can add/remove ratings in topics (and they could in my old 1.3.1 vertion too).
  • The Ratings area in topics are templated so you can move it anywhere you want to - or remove it.

If more ppl. find those features significant (i don't) i'll think about it...

I don't know if all is done - it's beta 0.1.1 - but you are welcome to make german.lng files.

I don't want to start a battle about that - but still: No i did not. Boris (MF-B) contacted me and told me that he had a ready made update for YaBB 2.1 running on his own board, so i gave him permission to release it.

can you change this in Ratings.pl:

Code
Select All
						<span class="small">
						$startdate<br />
						<b>$maintxt{'525'}:</b> <a href="$scripturl?action=viewprofile;username=$useraccount{$thisrateuser}">${$uid.$thisrateuser}{'realname'}</a>
						</span> 



Because in Main.lng is this in German

Code
Select All
'525' => 'verschoben von', 




This is need in German for moved topic text, but conflict with ratings list. Wink May you can add extra line in Ratings.lng

I think I was the one that originally asked for the star version, and I loved it then, and I would still love it now. But I am very happy to see this back again, whether or not the stars make a return.

I can see the point and purpose of rating threads, and it would be kind of nice to have, but again, the main thing is having ratings back at all!

Thank you, Carsten!

I'll try tonight to get my test board updated again, and give this a try!

It's not you ... it's me.

I was responding to this:

Auto-apply Rating (enable to auto-add Rating for all current and new Threads)
Set option for view Rating on Message Index (Enable or Disable, Show graphics only, Stars or Bars)

In general, but it looks like the bullet points here were about smaller details of the feature ... so if it is already in, that is great. As I said, me not understanding, not you not understanding.

I probably should have waited until I had a chance to install and test before saying anything, anyway. But sometimes I get ahead of myself. Sorry, Carsten!
