// automatically include optional WB module files (frontend.css, frontend.js)
    
if (function_exists(&#39;register_frontend_modfiles&#39;)) {
        
register_frontend_modfiles(&#39;css&#39;);
        
register_frontend_modfiles(&#39;js&#39;);
    
?>

great work !
can i somehow let people rate the posts of a (news)page separately, instead of only a bunch of questions at the end of the page ? i tried creating a whole bunch of different sections (News - Ajax - news - ajax - news - ajax) but the second Ajax rating doesnt show - plus, the News sections after the not showing ajax sections don't show either :/

Ok, i'll try that.

Another thing: I was thinking to add rating for news items, kind of like jackielein posted in this thread.

I want to have both commenting and rating of news items on my site. Any suggestions?

There a plans to integrate a rating function into the topics-module.
But: Topics is still beta and is not that easy to use like "news". And still mostly german.

Oh my! Thanks! I installed it, and it seems to be working. I'll play around with it and post comments if something comes up.

I was planning to make "Top rated"-page, where visitors could see posts in order depending on the average rating.

Something to do in the future maybe?

Another thing: When adding news, I always need to put unique table name? So in the first post I inserted
Code: [Select]
[[ColorRating?table=rate1]] and second:
Code: [Select]
[[ColorRating?table=rate2]] Is this the right way?

Would it be possible to add Rating Droplet in News settings-page, so that table name would increase by one for every post? This way rating would always come automatically to every post.

Could this be somehow done with post_id? But how to call the post_id?

Another thing: When opening new rating, would it be better/possible to add new row to table instead of making new table?

I'm back again with this project. Any ideas for making a top-rated-list? Also, I would love to show average value for every rating.

If anyone is interested, I'm calling this droplet in the news settings (Post Header:) like these:
Code: [Select]
[[ColorRating?table= [PUBLISHED_DATE]_[PUBLISHED_TIME]]]
