Is it possible to add a form for voting with stars ?

  1. beuzathor

    I begin with your plugin from today. I would like to do a field for voting in a form.
    The field will have à title and five stars for to evaluate. Visitor can click to the stars for say what he thinks.
    Is it possible ?

  3. Currently there is no ratings/star ratings field. So this isn't currently a field option. You'd have to use radio buttons which ask for a number rating or a drop down that asks for a number rating. We do plan on implementing a Ratings field type with options such as stars in a future release.

  5. We're trying to do something similar by using the myreviewplugin. I'm trying to find some information on how to use their star rating system inside a Gravity form. I have a good PHP guy but am trying to find any documentation on this. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

  6. I'm starting to look at ways to collect reviews myself and if this comes in Gravity Forms that would be very handy. Love the support you guys give.

    We are looking to add an admin only rating for each enquiry submitted via gravity forms.

    Basically each enquiry would be rated based on 5 criteria which would then provide an average total rating for each enquiry. This is only for the admin and would be used to rate the quality of leads we get from different sources.

    Is this type of functionality coming soon?

  8. You can use an admin only field drop down, with values of 1 to 5. Then you can sort based on that field to get your most qualified leads to the top. It would not be as visual as a star rating, but the ratings would be there for admin use.

    Ok, I actually just set that up to try while I was waiting for a response (which was very quick, thank you) but, I can't see the admin only parts.

    I've gone into the entry and still can't see it, where does admin enter the data?

    I'm guess it's right in front of my face ... :)

  10. Two things. I would add a default value, maybe 1, or lowest, or 3 for average, so there is always a value. When you view the single entry, that rating will be there. Then, when you click the blue edit button, you will see that you can use the drop down you added to rate the entry.

    Does that work for you?

  11. Hi - I was looking to create a form for a client where their customers could rate their service. And have read through this thread a few times trying to find a solution.

    I have made a solution using Gravity Foms, FontAwsome, CSS and a little javascript. I'm not quite finished with the solution - and I can't share the URL (yet) as the site is still in development. But I thought that I would leave a comment for other people looking for a solution.

    My approach is:

    1. Download and include FontAwesome in your site:
    2. give your form a custom css class in the gravity forms admin - i called mine "rating-form"
    3. set up a radio button field with five radio buttons (or whatever number you want)
    4. in the text section for each radio button put the following: <i class="icon-star-empty" id="1"></i>
    Using both class - this will be the font that is displayed & an id, which equals the rating level.
    5. Add a little CSS to hide the input button and format the text:

    .rating-form .gfield_radio li {
    float: left;
    padding: 5px !important;
    width: 60px;
    display: block;
    font-size: 60px;
    .rating-form .gfield_radio li input { display: none; }
    .rating-form .gfield_radio li label { margin-left: 0 !important; }
    i.icon-star {color: #0f6cae ;}
    i.icon-star-empty { color: #999;}

    6. Add a little javascript (this is not finished - it just works for clicks - and doesn't work if the page reloads and not all fields are filled in. It could also do with a mouseover and mouseout function or two.

    jQuery(document).ready(function($) {
      	if ($( ".rating-form" ).length > 0) { // check that the form is on the page
    		$( "li i.icon-star-empty" ).click(function() {
    			var num = $(this).attr('id') ;
    			// fill in the stars
    			for (var i=0;i<=num;i++) {
    				$("#"+i).removeClass('icon-star-empty').addClass('icon-star')  ;
    			// empty stars above the one clicked
    			for (var k=5;k>num;k--) {
    				$("#"+k).removeClass('icon-star').addClass('icon-star-empty')  ;
