We need rating scripts for different situations in our webpages. For example we want visitors to rate a wallpaper in a wallpapers site, or a product in a shopping cart. For this we can use one of the rating scripts presented below:
The guys from Masuga Design made this script unobtrusive, configurable( you can set number of stars) and provided the backend too – which use PHP and MySQL. The js part is based on prototype/scrptacolous.
This is a CSS only solution. The ajax part or backend is not covered here. The technique is crossbrowser, permits multiple sizes (see demo on their site) and is linked to another two posts that teach you how to create this.
Author took previous presented solutions and added the JS and PHP part. As posted on site “not a beginners tutorial – and just follow the steps” is presented in 5 short clear steps.
A minimal but complete rating system. This script i scapable to rate in percents, so you’ll have a more accuracy.To adapt it to your design you will need to dig into code and make changes needed.The stars are one sprite image as background, with variable background position.
Based on prototype,the raw demo of the script shows it’s capabilities , like locking the staring, callbacks,external set, bindings to form elements.
This script uses png with transparency,is animated, and has a ‘snap’ configuration that allows you to set steps for rating. Is mootools based, and will send the rating to an url set when you create the instance of the rating class. It also provides a tutorial of theme skinning.
“Starbox allows you to easily create all kinds of rating boxes using just one PNG image.” It uses prototype and for effects scriptaculous.
This can have variable number or sizes of stars – starting from 1 like gmail starring system. Is based on jquery.
Please let me know if you know other rating scripts/techniques.
