Comment form not showing Star input


Recommended Posts

I have this code in my template but it's not loading the stars. In the module CommentFrom if I comment out the check around whether it should show the stars they still not not render.

Any ideas why the stars will not show???


// comments form with all options specified (these are the defaults)
echo $page->comments->renderForm(array(
    'headline' => "<h5 class='uk-modal-title'>Leave a Review</h5>",
    'successMessage' => "<p class='uk-alert-success'>Thank you, your review has been submitted.</p>",
    'errorMessage' => "<p class='uk-alert-danger'>Your reivew was not saved due to one or more errors. Please check that you have completed all fields before submitting again.</p>",
    'processInput' => true,
    'encoding' => 'UTF-8',
    'attrs' => array(
        'id' => 'CommentForm',
        'action' => './',
        'method' => 'post',
        'class' => '',
        'rows' => 5,
        'cols' => 50,
	'inputWrapTag' => '<div class="uk-input">',
    'labels' => array(
        'cite' => 'Your Name',
        'email' => 'Your E-Mail',
        'text' => 'Your Review',
        'website' => 'Your Website',
        'stars' => 'Your Rating',
        'submit' => 'Submit Review',
    // the name of a field that must be set (and have any non-blank value), typically set in Javascript to keep out spammers
    // to use it, YOU must set this with a <input hidden> field from your own javascript, somewhere in the form
    'requireSecurityField' => '', // not used by default

Even this line does not seem to work in inspector, it just shows the default p tag

    'inputWrapTag' => '<div class="uk-input">',

Can you post your code for rendering the form.

Just what is shown in the Implementation field:

echo $page->comments->renderAll();

I suggest testing a Comments field on a clean installation of PW so you can determine that it does indeed work and then you can focus in on what might be different on your other site.

Any updates regarding this ? 

I have to enable the star option for comments in my new project - As I mentioned in above comment, CSS+JS files are  linked correctly. 

The code to  render the comment  as :

 echo $page->videocomments->renderAll(); 
                    echo $page->videocomments->renderStars(); 

videocomments is the filed name for comments

But the stars are not showing anywhere  when we try to input the comment  😞  But  stars showing in the admin panel and also it shows when a comment is approved but just a single star only




The star option is enabled in admin section as well 548168244_Screenshot_2020-06-22EditFieldvideocommentsbhimonlineclassroomin.png.d03ec79e41ad85d57e5b0d4384382617.png



So there is no way I can display the STAR option when a comment is input. Please help 


thank you

@JeevanisM Post all code from that template. Are you 100% sure you enabled stars for the field named videocomments?

Also, check your browser console, because there are errors/missing files (/js/pjax.js and /js/lazysizes.min.js) on the page that you linked. I don't think that it's related to your problem with missing stars, tho. Just a heads-up.
