Extend comments fieldtype with custom field(s) and star rating

Recommended Posts

I am looking for a developer who can extend the comments fieldtype for me.

I need two additional fields:

  1. add a field "title"
  2. add a star rating field (in backend and frontend) the rating field in the backend can be an input field and does not have to display as stars, but would be nice. The frontend needs to display the rating as stars.

There are two Star Rating modules already available, one is a rating for pages

the other is a fieldtype.

I need a solution that has the ability to be rendered as average ratings (so half stars are possible, you can find the code in the first module I mentioned, the second one just handles integers).

There are two types of output. One is for products and will show average ratings (see attached screenshot)

and the other one is for a comment and only shows full stars.

Pls provide me an offer/estimate.

After we agreed, I provide you with FTP and Backend access and you tell me which files changed.

Work needs to be done until 21. August 2015.

No response after four days. So I have to do it myself. Right now I got two custom inputfields working (title and rating), but yet without the stars. Thats the next step. I will post the result in the forums.

      Hi Guys,
      I am running a page template that contains a filter form that allows users to display results based on number of  comments. 
      Here is what I am thinking about doing: 
      -add new field called total_comments 
      -somehow populate this field every time a new comment is added or removed by admin with count($page->comments)
      -use form filter to display results that the selector form has found.
      Example: $selector = “total_comments>=$q”; 
      My question to everyone: Is this a good approach? If so how do I get another field to update based on the comment module adding or removing a comment?

      Hi, I am wondering if someone can help me out with getting the count of the comments of a page? 
      I am using Ryan's comments module as a reviews system for my site and would like to display the count of the comments per page, as below 

      The shops part that you see above is something similar to this 
      <?php $set_page = $page->title; $count = $pages->count("template=prices, title=$set_page"); echo $count; ?>

      The "Comments" core module has been activated locally with its four associated parts, including an Akismet API key, and has been rendered as per instruction via  Testing the comment form continues to render errors after this manner in the 3.0.96 version.
      Error: Exception: Invalid email address (processwire@localhost:8888) (in ... /wire/core/WireMail.php line 130)  
      After an exhaustive attempt on my part to overcome this error (with limited knowledge), I considered that maybe a corrupt file might be the cause.  However, after updating from 3.0.62 to 3.0.96, the same error persists.  Below is the particular section/line of code mentioned.
      /** * Sanitize an email address or throw WireException if invalid * * @param string $email * @return string * @throws WireException * */ protected function sanitizeEmail($email) { $email = strtolower(trim($email)); $clean = $this->wire('sanitizer')->email($email); if($email != $clean) { $clean = $this->wire('sanitizer')->entities($email); throw new WireException("Invalid email address ($clean)"); //<--- this is the line } return $clean; }  
      Inasmuch as this is the final element that needs to be addressed for this particular site, your assistance in helping me understand the issue and the remedy regarding this matter would be greatly appreciated.  Good day!

      Hi all, help needed with comments here. I see that there is a star rating system and possibility to upvote or downvote specific comments. Page on comments still does not go into details, especially about displaying them. I followed other things on that page, including the styling, to the letter. If you include custom code {stars}, stars are displayed but not properly (it shows 5 star only regardless of the rating). Also {votes} does show the arrows but they do not do anything. While in the backend things do work as expected (ie. stars can be set and votes changed). Am I missing something, like custom JavaScript or similar? Anyone else using these features in their comments?
