Hello there,

Just wondering is it possible to display the rating stars or even just the number (highlighted in red) or would this require custom development?

Example feed - user reviews for Waze app on iTunes app store:
http://itunes.apple.com/au/rss/customerreviews/id=323229106/xml

This is by far THE BEST navigation app I have ever come across. I stopped using all other navigation including the built in ones in the car. Don't waste time reading these reviews. JUST DOWNLOAD IT!

It displays the review and author fine, but no rating/stars.

Thanks in advance,

Not possible, but it uses the library/Zend/Feed/* reader/builder

The builder.php file has a construct which could take variables (but xenforo doesn't seem to use them??)
I dont know if it requires a plugin to extend on xenforo's method, or if it requires a little source code edit to append the rating to the content, and then when xenforo does the entries it assumes rating is part of it.

line 300 has itunes construct stuff, if (isset($data['itunes'])) { .. it does not seem to list rating

Now that i think of it, i am probably looking at the wrong stuff, .. mhm..
