    Nice work, Could be have a forum - forum option? Some forums have it, others don't.

    Thanks :)

    Looks great !


    The only problem with being able to rate threads in the thread listing is people don't need to read the thread to vote ...
    Of course, knowing your name and rating will be in the rating popup should discourage rating abuse.

    Should there be some maximum number of thread ratings per unit of time (spam prevention) ?

    Very nice work done with this.

    Would it be possible to only have this active in a particular forum?

    Been waiting for someone to come up with this. @JulianD this was a welcome surprise to find released today indeed.

    @Alien has come up with a good idea.

    But I'd extend it further and include an optional setting so only people who have participated in X thread can actually rate it. This would help prevent non-participating members from going on a mass rating spree on things they took no part in. And of course encourage people to participate.

    People can't rate threads from the thread list view. They have to go inside the thread to do so. The stars in the thread list view are just for displaying purposes.

    I have installed addon in XF 1.2 and the greyed out stars appear but aren't clickable - where do users set their rating for the thread?
  16. JulianD

    JulianD Well-Known Member

    The stars are only clickable within threads. Also, make sure you are rating a thread you did not start. The addon doesn't let authors to rate their own threads.

    @RoldanLT suggested that I should include rich snippets microdata into the addon, to allow Google display the thread ratings in search results. It is technically possible but after further investigation, the review Microdata is only applicable to service and products, not discussions: https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/146645

    I guess it's not going to happen since it can negatively affect your rankings. If there's any other rich snippet that could be used to display the thread's rating, let me know.

    There's an incompatibility with the Live Threads addon. I will fix it tomorrow. Thank you for reporting it!
