View Full Version : commentary/voting script

05-12-2009, 03:47 PM
I just got a job to implement commentaries and voting on a site for a design contest. Normally I'd do research on scripts that satisfy my needs on my own or just write it myself, but the deadline is two days from now, and I don't have that much time to spare.

So, if anyone knows of a ready to use component that does what I want, is easy to implement, and doesn't take much time to learn how to use, I'd very much appreciate it.

Users should be able to leave comments on each entry, that's pretty much straightforward; the form and comment headers should be available in english and german.

There won't be any user administration -- the voting will be IP based. Every IP gets 5 points to distribute among the entries.

I am fully aware that all of this is very simple to do, but when hearing about the deadline I got a little stressed out, and if someone had something handy that would spare me taking care of internationalization and security myself, that would be great!

Don't know any complex site that I have two days to complete i just use e_107. There is a voting plugin for it...


But might need some hacking to allow none members to vote. I know this isn't very efficient but considering your time frame its probably what i would do..

The comentry comes with the e107 its just called comment

what did you go for in the end?

Thanks for the link. In the end I did not want to risk spending time on a component that might turn out to not do what I want, so I wrote it myself.
