Anybody else interested in such a feature?

I am currently setting up what I can with the existing features to add reviews to my site — however the current features are lacking … I was wondering how many others would be interested in seeing some review functionallity built into OcPortal, and I also would like to find out from the ocPortal team what such mods / addins would cost… Maybe some of us could pool together to get this functionality.

An ideal review system would allow each user to add a ranking (1-5 stars) with their comment that then get averaged out for the product entry — Would also be nice to have the Pro's / Cons fields on their comments — It seems that the catalogue function has much of the needed structure in place to do this, just a matter of changing the rating system just a bit.

Hi,

I can't ethically sell the same functionality to two people (I'm referring to what I said about us doing a project that will include this, in the other topic), so if you don't mind I'll hold off replying until we've implemented the functionality we plan to into 4.2.
I'll then probably say what we've done somewhere, and if you or anyone else need it enhancing further, or releasing as a 4.1 addon, I can quote for that.

  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

4.2's out in beta, but we keep adding to it for various reasons ;). I'm not sure when the next beta will be, possibly a few weeks.

Oh a review system is some thing I have been needing for a while.
:) Keep up the good work.

I run http://otakuplayground.com and am hopping to make themes and other things for ocportal even though I no longer use it for otakuplayground.com I still love it and feel it could go far with the right help. It needs themes and needs people to advertise for it.
