Feedback on RatingContrib

-- CrawfordCurrie - 27 Jun 2007

This is the first topic I've created at twiki.org. I hope I did it right.

-- FilSalustri - 04 Jun 2008

I'm running TWiki 4.2.0, build 16278, and trying to install RatingContrib, but can't.

If I try to install via configure I get the error

  • Subroutine install redefined at /Library/WebServer/Documents/t/RatingContrib_installer.pl line 890.

If I download the plugin manually and run the installer, I get:

  • Can't locate object method "findUser" via package "TWiki::Users" at ./RatingContrib_installer.pl line 713.

Any hints on how to fix this?

Thanks Fil for creating this topic (yes, you did the right thing!), and thanks Crawford for contributing this extension! I completely missed it.

The installer has been buggy at times, you might have run into this. If this is the case, the author would need to build the package again. In any case you can unzip the package and copy the files into the twiki directory, preserving the directory structure.

I recomment to convert this contrib into a plugin and name it StarRatingPlugin. That way one can simply use a %STARRATING{ name="cool_factor" value="3" stars="10" }% to add a hidden HTML input field and a set of stars to pick a rating. I have just done that conversion with the ColorPickerContrib / ColorPickerPlugin.

Consider also supporting Star (half) half stars. There is a jQuery plugin for star rating, http://articles.sitepoint.com/article/jquery-star-rating - not sure if useful for our use case.
