Users running a non-download version of Vanilla (pulled from github), on branch release/2019.016 or master from the last 2 weeks should upgrade to release/2019.017 or latest master for security reasons. Downloaded official open sources releases are not affected.

Rate My Link 0.1.5b

Creates a special post type link, which allows user to rate a link 1-5

See screen shots for details.

Remember to set permissions

dashboard/role->Edit (next to applicable Role). The following can be set:

  • Plugins.RateMyLink.Rate
  • Plugins.RateMyLink.Add
  • Plugins.RateMyLink.ViewUserRatings
  • Plugins.RateMyLink.EditReset

ViewUserRatings does nothing. Repeat for each role.

Then set the categories you want the link posts to be possible.

settings/managecategories -> on Category there are checkboxes:

  • Link
  • Link Only

Link Only means there are no other forms of discussions, in that category.

There are also a couple of options that you can set in conf/config.php

$Configuration['Plugins']['RateMyLink']['NotSelf'] = TRUE;
$Configuration['Plugins']['RateMyLink']['Blind'] = TRUE;

The first one means you can't vote for yourself, and the second means it is a blind ballot.
