GD Star Rating
Integrating ratings into the comment form? (3 posts)

    I run a small publishing house website and am feeling kind of overwhelmed at all of the options available with this plugin, so I thought I'd just try posting a question.

    I want to give each book we release its own page with a summary/cover/tags/etc. However, I would like customers who buy the book to be able to leave comments on how they liked it.

    I can turn comments on and off for individual pages, so that's not a problem, and ideally, I'd like to have the comment form have the multiset star rating integrated into it somehow.

    Is that possible at all? I want the comments themselves to function like reviews, with ratings and text-based comments all included, as a help to other customers.

    Is this function bundled into GDSR somewhere? It's very possible I've overlooked it!

    ETA: Alternatively, I'm not opposed to turning off comments altogether so long as the rating area has a text-box option as well, where a user can leave a review.

    I realize this plugin is called GD *STAR* Rating, but is a textbox comment in addition to the star rating an option?

    Hrm, well after finally digging up this (4 years old) tutorial, I successfully integrated the review system into the comments form, but have been stumped as to how to get the review to display WITH the comment on submission. The code provided:

    <?php if (defined("STARRATING_INSTALLED")) : ?>
    <div style="float: right">
    <?php  wp_gdsr_comment_integrate_multi_result(get_comment_ID(), 1, 0, "crystal", 16); ?>
    <?php endif; comment_text(); ?>

    (my multiset ID was "1")

    The comment text is indeed shunted to the left, making way for the float-right div on the right, but nothing shows up, so there's just a big gray hole.

    Related, I only want this to show up in my PAGES comments; it's showing a rating box on EVERY post/page though. I realize it's integrated into the comments, but even pages where no comments are displayed show the star rating box. What gives?
