Simple rating tool

I'm trying to create a website that allows users to comment/write a blog on companies and their services. I would therefore like to implement a simple star rating at the bottom of the "Write a new blog" page so users could give their ratings.

I wouldn't require this to go into the database but would just like to show it up on the respective post when viewed.

Has anyone ever tried something like this or would you have any hints as where to start with this?

thanks a lot in advance.

gbailey,

I'm actually just finishing up a plugin that does exactly that. It uses AJAX to send the vote, which is stored in the database. The voter's IP is checked to make sure it's not a duplicate vote. It also works when the reader has javascript turned off. The plugin is for b2evolution 1.8, which is still in development, but I'm using a cvs snapshot on my site. If you want to go ahead and upgrade, I can tell you how to get the plugin. You can see a demo [url=http://brendoman.com/dev/180-alpha/]here[/url]

Hi Personman,

Well that sounds fantastic!! I'll look into an upgrade (my project is still in the development stage also) over the next few days.
Would be great if I could test your new plugin for the rating then.

thanks a lot

Hi Personman,

I working on the rating tool using b2evolution 1.8. Do you have a sample which I can use.

Thanks

Hi Personman,

Thank you for the plugin. I have downloaded it and shall integrate it in 1.8 alpha.

Best wishes.

Hi Personman,

I am having this error when I install the plugin in 1.8.1 RC. The error is

Parse error: parse error, unexpected ';', expecting T_FUNCTION in D:\Apache Group\Apache2\htdocs\b2e\blogs\plugins\starrating_plugin\_starrating.plugin.php on line 318

Can you kindly advice me on fixing this error.

Thanks

Best wishes

Oct 05, 2006 17:29

chauhans, the error is because personman used a PHP short tag (line 210 in version 0.1 of the plugin).

Search for "<\?[^p]" (regular expression) and replace it with "<?php".

Oct 05, 2006 17:32

Sorry about that. I just fixed it in the new version, which I'm trying to get released today if blueyed and I can get one more thing fixed.

Oct 06, 2006 12:31

alright :o looks good but I got this error: document all is zero or no object
I am using b2evo 1.8

Oct 08, 2006 09:15

I solved it by myself. plugin does not work with IE. the rating window is only a "black box".
it works very good with firefox.

Oct 08, 2006 12:40

If you want to use IE then upgrade to IE7.. unless you are one of the millions on Win2k that MS don't give a hoot about :)

The rating tool works with IE7, as well as a few other things.
Won't help your visitors though, unless you put up a big sign that says "Use Firefox, or if you must use IE, then get 7"

Oct 08, 2006 17:49

joachim,
You're right, there was a bug, but I just fixed it and updated the zip file. Download copy the new files over the old ones and it should work. Thanks for catching this for me.

Danny

Oct 08, 2006 22:07

Do you get the same error when trying the demos at script.aculo.us in Konqueror?

Oct 09, 2006 09:16

the black window works pefekt @ IE with the permalink, but if you want to view the rating box from the "main-page" you still get a black box and not the rating inside.

Hi All
I have just installed b2Evolution ( 1.8) anh try to install starrating plugin by manual on manual.b2evolution.net but still have some problem.Could any one help me with some problems:
- I download and install plug-in successfully.
- In Start Rating Plug in setting, I set it "opt-out" in Rendering setting
- Modify "_main.php" in skin as manual

<?php $Plugins->call_by_code( 'starrating', array('id' => $Item->ID ) ); ?> 

But I am not sure where to hack second change :

<?php $Plugins->call_by_code( 'starrating', array('display' => 'notice' ) ); ?> 

I try to post 1 post with already check Start Rating Option, but I did not see any change in my Blog.

Note: I installed b2E in localhost

Please give me some advices!
Thanks and Best Regards,
Khoa Huynh.

Khuynh,
That second line of code goes right after the <body> tag in your _main.php file.

Also make sure that the first bit of code is placed inside the bSmallPrint section (or at least somewhere inside the post loop).

Do you see any stars next to your post after doing that?

Danny

Oct 09, 2006 18:06

joachim,
I'm not sure what you mean. I tried skins.b2evolution.net in IE and I can vote from the main page. Do you have a link to a site where you're experiencing this problem?

Oct 10, 2006 14:19

I'm just getting mysql errors at your site.

Oct 10, 2006 20:46

?? everything works fine ??? there are no mysql errors.

Oct 10, 2006 21:02

The errors are gone now (but I didn't imagine them this morning). I think I see what has happened. You didn't follow directions very well and you placed the notify skin tag inside the post loop. You end up with several divs with the same id, so when the JS tries to update the div, it doesn't know which to use. Move that notify skin tag to right after the <body> tag and I think your problem will go away.

Oct 11, 2006 15:37

Dear personman
Thanks for your reply, now It work great.I like this plugin?

Hello

i've got a problem with your plugin personman, i installed it as said in the manual, then i have

Undefined index: display in _starrating.plugin.php on line 123

i'm on 1.8-beta b2evolution.

Regards, patrice.

Try upgrading to 1.8.2. That what this was designed with. It's a more stable version, anyway, so you should be using it.

Oct 26, 2006 01:07

personman, the error/notice is with the plugin, not b2evo.

Care to add it to the evocms-plugins repo? Then I would just have taken a look at it.. :)

Seems the SkinTag() method gets called without a "display" param. You might want to check if it's empty() in your plugin (I have 0.5.2-dev here).

Nov 10, 2006 22:37

Personman
the rating just stops at 'Loading...'
Do you hve any idea why?
It worked for 1 day, than it just died
Thanx,
P.

System: b2evo 1.8.2, starrating 0.5

Peter,
I just voted for a post on your blog and it worked fine.

Nov 12, 2006 22:03

:( it still desn't work on mine...
Thanx for checking.

I notice that star rating doesn't work on the blog all blog. Is there a way to fix that?

Dec 14, 2006 23:42

I just installed on the 1.9.1 beta and I am wondering why I am receiving error messages:

Trying to get property of non-object in d:\program_files\wamp\www\blog\plugins\starrating_plugin\_starrating.plugin.php on line 210

Under this is repeats all the stars over and over. Also I am receiving the loading message after trying to submit.

Dec 15, 2006 00:22

Add

error_reporting(1);

to your /conf/_basic_config.php file (or to the top of the plugin file). 1.9.1 seems to enable display of php notices. I'll release a new version of the plugin that fixes all the notices (sloppy coding on my part), but you can turn down error reporting for the time being.

Dec 15, 2006 18:20

okay added the error reporting line and that took care of the messages, however there is 1 issue that came out of that. not sure what the fix is, I will look into it but I wanted to show you so you could see:

Dec 15, 2006 18:26

Can you give a link to your site and let me know what web browser(s) are affected?

Dec 15, 2006 19:37

sorry its on a localhost, i have been testing and building up a blog. its on a closed network.

browsers affected though in my testing:
ie 6

firefox 2 - firefix also has a small black bar on the left side half of the size of the netscape

netscape 7 - netscape also has a black bar on the left side - image attached

Dec 17, 2006 16:03

Hi I love the fact that you have developed this plugin! Can't wait to get it working...

I am running 1.9.1- still in test -

I get this error in the sidebar:
Notice: Undefined offset: 2 in /home2/bigjim/public_html/blog/plugins/starrating_plugin/_starrating.plugin.php on line 177

When I go to the file, it's a blank space.

and when you vote you get a new page with this error:
Notice: unserialize() [function.unserialize]: Argument is not a string in /home2/bigjim/public_html/blog/plugins/starrating_plugin/_starrating.plugin.php on line 262
unit_long23|

You can see it at this url:
http://blog.hotstuffleatherandlace.com/index.php/b?cat=4

Also, I don't think the images are right...
Please help when you have the chance...
Thanks Jim

Danny : Something I noticed in Democracy was this error was caused by \n in one of the $params. If it's the same problem you can cure it like this

     <input type="hidden" name="params" id="params" value='<?php echo str_replace( "\n", ' ', serialize($params) ); ?>' />

¥

Dec 17, 2006 16:16

The $params Just bellow line 117 looks like this:
function SkinTag( $params )
{
global $plugins_url, $DB, $Item, $Plugins, $blog, $ReqAbsUrl;
$outof = $this->Settings->get('outof');
if(!isset($params['display'])) $params['display'] = 'stars';

if ($params['display'] == 'notice') {
echo '<div id="ratingResults" style="display:none"></div>';
} elseif ($params['display'] == 'toprated')
{

Where would we fix it?

Thanks,
Jim

Dec 17, 2006 16:26

Hi Jim,
Sorry that was just a note for Danny.

You'd need to replace every occurence of :-

serialize($params)

with :

str_replace( "\n", ' ', serialize($params) )

Take a backup first though huh, because I haven't looked at the code I'm just basing it on the cure for a different plugin ;)

Dec 17, 2006 16:52

Thanks again, did a quick search on the code no serialize($params) found. There are plenty of ($params) and even some $params.. not very good at this, maybe I should wait until personman looks at his code?

Try changing this line :-

$checkIP = unserialize($r->used_ips); 

to :

$checkIP = (empty( $r->used_ips) ? NULL : unserialize($r->used_ips) );

Thanks! that did the trick on the 2nd error after voting. Although it still goes to a new page.

Still have the side box error refering to line 117.

Progress has been made.

Thanks,

I installed the plugin but instead of getting 5 stars I get 5 numbers...

Apparently I have done something wrong. Here is where I put the code:

</head>
<body>
<?php $Plugins->call_by_code( 'starrating', array('display' => 'notice' ) ); ?>

<div class="bSmallPrint">
<a href="<?php $Item->permanent_url() ?>" title="<?php echo T_('Permanent link to full entry') ?>" class="permalink_right"><img src="img/chain_link.gif" alt="<?php echo T_('Permalink') ?>" width="22" height="22" border="0" class="middle" /></a>
<?php $Item->feedback_link( 'comments', ' &bull; ' ) // Link to comments ?>
<?php $Item->feedback_link( 'trackbacks', ' &bull; ' ) // Link to trackbacks ?>
<?php $Item->feedback_link( 'pingbacks', ' &bull; ' ) // Link to trackbacks ?>
<?php $Item->edit_link( ' &bull; ' ) // Link to backoffice for editing ?>
<?php $Item->trackback_rdf() // trackback autodiscovery information ?>
<?php $Plugins->call_by_code( 'starrating', array('id' => $Item->ID ) ); ?>
</div>

Thoughts?

Btw --- the site is www.theparchment.org -- the post about New Years 2007 has the plugin enabled so you can see what I am getting as a result.

I'm guessing that you haven't fully upgraded your skin. In particular you appear to be missing the hooks that plugins use in the <head> section :-

<head>
	<?php skin_content_meta(); /* Charset for static pages */ ?>
	<?php $Plugins->trigger_event( 'SkinBeginHtmlHead' ); ?>

You need to add it to _main.php
