Re: Core rating feature?

Well, something to add to another release - finish this feature. For now, I'm not going to worry if it works in the new release, as it has nothing. Maybe we should add something to the page that it is under development and provide a landing page for feature discussion and development.

The description from Tom is more or less what I would expect it to do in its basic form : you have a calculated value that is updated each time someone votes, and that value is the one that is retrieved at display time. Each user should have a list in his user profile with all the votes that he cast. Perhaps it would be a useful feature to let admins determine if votes can be changed once cast, or even removed. A rating type would be interesting to have : for example when rating a module, you can define that there are multiple ratings that you want to capture : ease of installation, feature set, compatibility with existing modules, ... That means that you need to be able to link the vote to an object, and also define for this type of object which categories of votes can be cast.

A good place to integrate this would be the downloads module (which has other issues), there the voting

Going through the upcoming release and making sure everything still works - it looks like we never finished this. The wiki page has moved - it's now at

If anyone has an example of this and how it was intended to be used, that would be great! It came from SmartObject

Ah, sorry, I misunderstood.

So we have no modules using this feature at the moment? So no example code....
