Disable self-rating (Author/Created By should not be able to rate his own document)

Nice solution.

Is there a way I can have this feature: "Author should not be able to rate his own document. This is needed to restrict self-rating."

Thanks! Well, yeah it's quite easy to do. In the ItemRating.aspx page, you can just check whether the current user is the content author or not but you'll need to rebuild & redeploy the solution.

I could do it myself and make it configurable but I'd need other requirements so that I don't build a full new release only with that feature :). If you have other ideas, don't hesitate :)


Best Regards
