Post ratings module [beta]

Permalink Email to the author Report to webmaster

A 5-star rating system for posts. Fully configurable, includes a set of controls for mods/admins and widgets to show the best rated posts by a given period.

Users just rate posts from 1 to 5 stars (you can limit voting to registered users only if needed)
Everyone can see the results, but mods/admins have full details and extra controls
By tuning the settings and with a cron job added, you can easily build rankings

Ratings are built with a sanitized Bayesian rating algorithm.

Cron job required

For automatic rankings building, a cron job must be set:

  • For one week period:
# m h dom mon dow command
0 0 * * sun php -q /path/to/bardcanvas/post_ratings/cli/calculate.php > /dev/null
  • For half month period:
# m h dom  mon dow command
0 0 1,15 * * php -q /path/to/bardcanvas/post_ratings/cli/calculate.php > /dev/null
  • For one month period:
# m h dom mon dow command
0 0 1 * * php -q /path/to/bardcanvas/post_ratings/cli/calculate.php > /dev/null
