    • I seem to be getting a url error when using this with friendly urls and friendly paths enabled:

      an example of the url being generated by the makeurl function:
      http://localhost/development/swellguys.co.za/new.html?starvote=2&pid=263


      which should be:
      http://localhost/development/swellguys.co.za/dev/new.html?starvote=2&pid=263
      • Hi Marschant,

        If you substitute any occurrences of $modx->documentObject[’alias’] in the makeUrl calls with an empty string (’’) then that should solve the issue.

        Thanks for the bug report ... any problems then let me know. I will get the main package updated tomorrow with this fix.

        • Confirmed, did this last night and it worked, might I suggest checking the "use friendly alias path" settings and outputing different url strings based on that?
          • No need ... removing the alias value will allow it to be used for all combinations of friendly url settings. smiley

            • Hi,
              First of all, thanks for developing such a cool snippet.

              I have facing one strange problem with it, I added the star_rating with onevote parameter but it still allows me to vote more than one time i.e. it counts the 2nd vote...

              I have used following parameters:

              [!star_rating? &onevote &docID!]

              I also tried using: [!star_rating? &useSession &docID!]

              but none of them helped me.

              Please suggest the solution.

              Thanks
              Deep

              • I never used Start Rating, but usually snippet calls need a value assigned to the parameter... I guess you’re still learning MODx there. Check out the doc, it helps getting through the basics smiley

                If you look at the snippet page, you’ll see that the &onevote parameter seems to be a boolean : i.e can only be either set to true or false &onevote=`1` or &onevote=`true` I guess. When the parameter is set to true, it seems the snippet uses cookies to remember the vote (thus, not allow multiple votes).

                The &docID parameter is optionnal, only if you need to retrieve the star rating from another document. Then you should use it like this &docID=`5` if the document you want to use has the ID : 5 (see in the document tree the number in parentheses).

                I’ll let those who actually used the snippet get into more detail.
                Hope it helps smiley

                    • lol, I just typed out almost to the word what David said in his post - beat me to the posting though laugh

                      It doesn’t matter what value the &useSession and &onevote parameters are given, the fact they are specified in the snippet call will trigger the relevant functionality.

                      The &docID parameter is, as David mentioned, for remote page voting and was something that was used in the designing of the MODx Repository. I know that somebody did once mention a Ditto/Star Rating combo but I’m not sure if they ever got anywhere with it ...

                      Glad you got it working Deep! smiley
