Bootstrap jQuery Author: Kartik Visweswaran

Allow users to instantly leave a star rating for topics, and display an average rating! RateKit is an easy-to-use, ultra low maintenance PHP and jQuery plugin. Tracks by visitors’ IP address and stores ratings in a local SQLIte database using phpBB’s topic id to track each topic. When it loads, it checks for existing ratings of that topic. If an IP address has rated before, it will not allow another vote. Star color and size are customizable inside the common language file. Administrators may set user permissions to use RateKit, and/or hide in selected forum categories. It almost takes zero skill at all to operate!

  • Fixed: Bug reported that sometimes topics were not opening in version 1.2.0 using phpbb 3.2.2
  • Added: ACP option for disabling Ratekit on Locked, Global, Announcement and/or Sticky topics.
  • Moved: Top both top & bottom templates in viewtopic, to before post buttons.
  • Changed: Templates for all styles. Migration removes /prosilver/ from this extension and /all/ folder in this package.
  • Tweaked: CSS to reflect some template changes and to float the ‘Overall’ to the right in view topic, plus other mobile enhancements.
