    Hi,
    Is there anyway that I can create a Review/Rating module for a particular item (like Amazon).  Seems that I can use the Blog module but there's no rating feature yet.
    Thanks for your help

    Hello Keen,

    We have started on such implementation, but it is not in the product yet. The approach we use is, storing the rating in a meta data field. The public part of this, is jQuery implementation, allowing you to rate. Here are the basic steps you should follow:

    1. Create a new meta field for your blog items. This is described in our User Manual, Customizing Modules section.
    2. Use GetMetaData and SetMetaData methods to get and store the meta data.

    I hope this helps.

    while developing this, please also incorporate it at the page level as well! it's great that all the gc modules will work with it, but i'd like to be able to show ratings on individual pages as well.

    thanks!

    Hi Keen,

    We are targeting this feature for 4.0 version, or shortly after that. It will be available for pages as well.
    The 4.0 release itself is scheduled for June/July.

    Kind regards,

    Hi Georgi,
    Thanks for your reply. So in case if I want to develop a rating/review module (for shopping cart) , I should modify Forum module or Blog module ?
    I'm thinking about using the Forum module  because for the Blog, only the author can create new post, is this correct? (or is there anyway in which any user can post a new blog entry ?)
    Regards,
    Keen

    Hello Keen,

    Unfortunately the Forums module is not Generic Content based module, so it is not supporting the Metafields architecture. The Blogs module is Generic Content based though.

    It is possible that everyone can create a blog post, with some development from your side. You can use our API to create a new blog/post, please take a look at the examples here:
    Let me know if you have any further questions.

    Hi Georgi,
    Is that I need to create  a new user control which is similar to the new blog post page and calling the Blog API from that ?

    Hello Keen,

    This is exactly what I mean. And the control should work on the public side.

    I noticed that you paste some code snippets while you compose the post. They are related to a dictionary, which is sometimes broking the editor layout. We kindly ask you to remove such code snippets from the post body, because we should clean them manually in the other case.

    Thank you for your understanding.

    Hi Georgi,
    Sorry about the code snippets which are accidentally inserted.
    For the next version 4.0, is there any pre-release before June/July so that I can take a look in advance about the Rating feature ?
    Best Regards
    Keen

    Hello Keen,

    We targeting June or July for 4.0, but will surely provide some betas before that. I cannot confirm to an exact date though.
