Rating for Discussion Board

Feb 25, 2010 at 2:12 AM

It is a great solution, thx so much!!

I created a ratable discussion board, enter rating and comment functions are nice.

1. Rating calculation 

But I have 2 questions, current rating is not average rating, it is just for individual reply?

For example:

I create a Discussion A, and leave the rating blank

John replies Discussion A and gives 3 stars

Mary replies Discussion A and gives 2 stars

I want Discussion A rating be (3+2)/2 -> result is 3 star for Discussion A

But current rating, only display the first entry/discussion in the subject view, therefore the rating is blank in this case.

I did something wrong or this is normal/correct.

 2. Default value for the rating

Set the default value for the rating, for example: 3 stars

Is it possible?

Thx so much!!

Thanks! Here are the answers:

1) The rating is always the average of all the ratings for a given list item. In the case of a discussion board, you can rate the discussion itself or its replies individually. If the persons who reply rate their own reply, of course, this won't be counted for the average of the discussion. If you want an average rating for the discussion, they need to both rate the discussion and not their reply.

2) Nothing in the solution gives you this possibility. However, you could still customize it since you've got the source code :).

Best Regards
