Overview

This product is designed to allow you to make vBulletin's thread rating system more visible and configurable. Your settings regarding whether users are allowed to change their votes and to check the thread rating are taken into account. However, if you choose to use the highly visible thread rating, if a user has already rated a thread and you do not allow vote changes, they will not be shown the voting options, but will instead be shown a message that they have already voted and vote changes are disabled.

The settings are divided into two categories:

Highly Visible Thread Rating Settings

Here you may set whether you wish for the thread rating system to appear at the top of showthread pages rather than in the thread controls bar. You can then configure the CSS for this element. Lastly, you can decide if you wish for the list of users who have rated a thread (along with their vote) to be displayed. The users are shown using their HTML markup, and link to their profile pages. You may select which usergroups are allowed to view who rated threads



Thread Rating Control

Here you can exclude usergroups from being able to rate threads. You may also exclude forums from thread rating, while forums that have been excluded from the rating system via your Forum Manager will remain excluded regardless of this product's settings.

Credits:

This product is an extension of the mod vb.org Rating System for vb4 authored by eTiKeT™ (who graciously marked the code reusable).

This product does not require you to make any template edits, just install it and set your settings.

Updates:

version 1.1
  • Added setting for the selection of usergroups allowed to see who rated threads.

version 1.2
  • Fixed conflict with function name used by my "Featured Threads" add-on.

version 1.3
  • Admin options processing more efficient.
  • Templates now cached.

Compatibility:

Tested and working on VB 4.2.x and should work on all 4.x versions of vBulletin.

Backup/Warning:

This product does not alter your database, however it is always good practice to make regular backups and you should make a backup before installing ANY new mod.

As always, products are USE AT YOUR OWN RISK. I will provide support and do my best to help but no absolute guarantee is offered.

To Install:
  1. Download and extract the attached .zip file.
  2. Follow AdminCP -> Plugins & Products -> Manage Products -> Add/Import Product.
  3. Click on "Choose File" and browse to the product .xml file that was packaged in the .zip file.
  4. Click "Import."
  5. You MUST enable the product in the settings before it will function.
  6. Configure the remaining settings to your liking. Each setting has a detailed explanation of its use.

As I understand, we don't need to install template modification you mention in first post? Your mod does everything itself?

That's correct, and I can see how my choice of wording could be confusing, so I will edit the first post.

"Show Rated Thread"
- Instead of a yes/no option, can you make it so we can exclude certain usergroups from viewing the who rated the threads?

- Is it possible for you to make a mod (or add into this one) to arrange threads based on how many ratings it has?

Thanks for the Mod

Yes, that would be easy to do. Look for that within 24 hours.

Very nice, installed in 4.2.0pl4, works fine.

When ever make any update maybe you include phrase:
"You have already rated this thread and vote changes have been disabled by the administrators."

To change in Greek I found it in template "markfl_visible_thread_rating"


Thank you

Ratings visible in Forum Thread listings?

Do rated threads show the rating when viewing a forums thread listing?

You'd have to edit the "markfl_visible_thread_rating" template.

Installed but nothing displays

Well now. Okay, installed and have Enabled Product? set to Yes; Enable Highly Visible Thread Rating? set to Yes; Show Who Rated Threads? set to No; left Usergroups Allowed To See Who Rated Threads as All; selected Excluded Usergroup(s) and selected Active Forum(s). Save changes.

Entering any of the enabled forums and clicking on any thread doesn't show the rating window at all. What am I missing?

Do you have "Allow Thread Ratings in this Forum" set to yes for the desired forums in your "Forum Manager?"
