Star Ratings Integration

  1. I know that this has been raised on a few occasions in the past - and I recall having seen a comment or two that it was under consideration - but I just wanted to check on whether or not star ratings were on the radar screen for Gravity Forms and, if so, when we might be able to expect to see it happen.

    If it's not on the radar screen in the near-term, what is the best way to approach this?

    I've seen a post about using GD star ratings with GF - with some custom PHP - but don't know if there may be a better/simpler way (esp, one that doesn't depend upon another plugin).

    Many thanks

  2. There are no plans that I know of to include star ratings in Gravity Forms, especially since other plugins provide star ratings already. You can read about integrating the existing GDSR plugin here:

    If you have any questions, please let me know.

  5. I am "this close" to creating an extremely simple, all-CSS solution for a 5-star rating input using gravity forms' radio buttons. The only problem I have is radio button groups are generated using unordered lists. Each button is within it's own li tag. Is there any way to simply generate adjacent buttons without the list eg: <input><label></label><input><label></label><input><label></label>

    I need the labels and inputs to be siblings with the same parent container in order for the CSS to work. I'd be happy to share the code that makes the star rating if I get it working.

  6. I got it to work but I had to delete the list generating code from common.php. It's a bit crude and when GF gets updated, it will wipe out my change. Does anyone know a better way to prevent radio button groups from being generated as a list?

  7. Gravity Forms outputs all the form fields as lists. There is no easy way to change that.

  10. I figured out how to work around the autogenerated lists by using the gform_field_input filter to make custom radio buttons that worked with the CSS. Mission accomplished! CSS 5 star rating functional! Thanks for your help.
