Allows your Posts to be rated on a scale of 1 - 5 stars.  Many features and options included for this.

Detailed Description:
Post Ratings allows your posts to be rated on a scale from 1 - 5 stars.  Users can not rate their own posts.  This mod is completely customizable.  You can choose the rated and non-rated images to display.  Put BBC and Smileys into the rating options.  And many more features.  You can Enable All Posts, and/or New Posts, or Disable All Posts, and/or New Posts from being rated.  You can choose to not allow the First post within a topic to be rated.  You can set the % values for each rating within the Ratings Threshold and also set the Ratings Threshold Strength.  You can also choose a limit on how many ratings each post can have as well as what to do when locking that topic.  If a message and/or topic is removed, all ratings within that message/topic will also be removed.  Also, permissions can be set to allow for enable/disable in topics and/or posts on a per Board basis via Board Profiles.
This mod lacks certain features that are presented in Post Ratings Pro, which can be downloaded here:
Post Ratings Pro provides everything the Post Ratings Mod has, plus the addional abilities listed below:
  • The ability to turn this into a Topic Ratings MOD.
  • Ordering all topics within a board by highest/lowest rating.
  • Guaranteed to work on any SMF 2.0.x version, including the latest!
  • The ability to select Categories/Boards to enable/disable Post Ratings in.
  • Statistics added to the SMF Stats page (index.php?action=stats) for Highest Rated Topics/Posts and Most Rated Users. Adds a complete Statistic settings Administration section for manipulating the output of these statistics.
  • Ability to display ratings on the Message Index.
  • Ability to allow members to rate their own posts (if needed).
  • Ability for those who have permission, to see a break down of ratings for each post/topic, by clicking on the "Rated {x} times." text.
  • Fully customizable for whatever your forum needs. Change any strings (with full BBC code support), images, display output, and more.
  • Fixes Bugs found in the Post Ratings Mod.
  • Integrates into the SMF Moderation Logs, and will let you know when any ratings are enabled/disabled or if any ratings within any topics/posts have been deleted.

Note:  After installation, you should go to your SMF Permissions area and setup the permissions for Post Ratings before Enabling it, that way everything should work as planned once Post Ratings is Enabled in the Topic and Posts Admin Area of SMF.

Important Note:  To ensure Post Ratings Settings are correctly placed and loaded, you will be redirected so that your File Cache will be cleared, directly after installing Post Ratings.  After which, go to: Forum -> Posts and Topics -> Post Ratings and complete setup.  Than make sure you have your permissions set for each usergroup.  You will notice their are Board Profile permissions as well for enabling in topics and posts.
