Lightbulb AODb ratings widget - 07-24-2011, 09:55 PM

I'm bringing in a huge load of new features to the AODb before its big relaunch. Among these are user accounts and the ability to rate items in the AODb when logged in.

In the AODb ratings look like this:
There you can click on any star to rate that item, easy.

But, what I thought would be a cool feature would be rating and viewing ratings directly from here on the Alice community; so I invented the AODb ratings widget.

When this is finalised and released you will be able to grab some automatically generated BB code from your AODb account and paste it into any post on this website.

The end result is this:

This is the actual widget, not a mock up, play with it if you like (not that you can submit any ratings without user accounts ready).

Just in case I have the AODb offline right now, here is a picture:
It is an image built from 5 segments, each a dynamically generated image so it can display the actual rating real-time (relative to page refreshes). You can click on any star to rate the item in question (which here is RP by X, this rating is just representative, I would give RP 5 stars) when accounts are up and running.

Tell me what you think.


I have mostly moved on from Alice, but may still respond to messages if important [-]
