Implementation notes
  • Designed for performance, only minimal data is fetched when interacting with the rating system
    • Overrides XF2's rebuild behaviour to instead be incremental rather than count all ratings on a piece of content.
  • As MySQL's InnoDB table structure does not feature prefix compression, a content type/id pair is very inefficient space-wise.
  • Uses per-content tables which are dynamically managed to store count totals, and automagically links these to the right places for use.
  • If a content's table is "too large" to extend (ie when adding a rating type) without downtime, that content has the rating type disabled for it and the required manual SQL for the administrator to run provided.
    • "too large " table size threshold is an adjustable, may be to fully automatic or fully manual for adding columns.

This is an amazing addon, Xon has done an amazing job, especially on mobile. Whats even more amazing is the support Xon gives. He really goes above and beyond to help his customers. I trust him and trust his work fully.
Superb rating addon. Developer (Xon) is probably one of the best here. Always try to help customers, listen customers and quickly resolve bugs.
Shine on Xon!
Awesome rating addon for XF, the best rating solution I have seen for a mobile device in any forum platform. And the support is insanely quick, helpful and accommodating!
Best XF rating addon by far (I've paid for the others and regret it). Also, the author has been receptive to the user's suggestions and helpful/quick to resolve issues.
Content Ratings is an add-on built from the ground up with performance, extensibility and scalability in mind. Rock solid code and a must have for forums of all sizes and demographics.
A solid replacement for Post Ratings in XF2 :)

Pretty flexible with how ratings can be defined, and integrates with profile posts and conversations out of the box as well.
