Rating widgets for websites, blogs and comments

    Tumblr instructions are here.

    Graddit presents rating widgets for your websites, blogs and comments. There's a number of predefined widgets on this page you can choose from.

   Copy and paste generic widget code and corresponding styles into you pages. There's also code prepared for use for Blogger and Blogger comments:


Instrunctions for Blogger you could find below, but first here's explanation of some of the parameters.

Important parameters

<div id='rate' class='rate'>{[["&#9734;","&#9733;"]]}</div>


This div element contains information about the symbols used to display rating: "&#9734;" is empty star, "&#9733;" – filled star; It can also contain any valid HTML element, like images or spans. id of the div is important, as it's passed to the server (see below).



<div id='stats'></div>



This div element will contain text with the number of votes, views and average rating. Its id is also passed to the server, but you can omit the whole div, in this case the previous div (rate) will be used instead.



<script type='text/javascript' src='http://www.graddit.com/rate/ eng/ 5/mjov07w?id=rate&stats=stats'></script>
don't change it language number of stars unique rating ID id of an element where rating will appear id of an element where number of votes will be shown


    You can also pass the following parameters:
  1. ...&top=no — this prevents rating from appearing in statistics;
  2. ...&callback=my_function_name

    If this parameters is passed, after rating is loaded your function with name "my_function_name" will be called with the following parameters:

    "key"rating id
    "id"id of the div with rating widget loaded
    "stats"id of the div with text (number of votes)
    "average"average rating
    "amount"number of stars
    "votes"number of votes
    "data"raw votes data

    This gives you the full control over the rating widget.

    How to add rating widgets on your blog
  1. Select a widget and copy code from a Blogger tab.
  2. In the settings of your blog select Design tab (in old interface; in new interface it'll be Template tab), save old template (Backup/Restore button), Edit HTML and select "Expand Widget Templates":
    Old Blogger interfaceNew interface
  3. You can backup your template now if you haven't done it yet - select all, copy and save into a file. In the template text find string "<data:post.body/>" and paste widget code after it. If there's more than one such string you might need to try it first: add some string (like '!!!'), save and check if that is the place where you want your new widgets to be displayed; than remove !!! and paste widgets code. You can separate rating from the text with one or two new lines with <br/><br/>, like this:
  4. Add the following line into <head>...</head> section of your page:
    <link type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" href="http://static.graddit.com/css/graddit.css" />
  5. Save the template and check that rating appeared under all the posts in your blog. If you don't want it to be shown on main page of the blog, but only when one opens a post, you should change widget code line

    "<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType != "static_page"'>"
    to
    "<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == "item"'>"
  6. To add rating to all the comments in your blog take widget code from Blogger Comments tab and put it after line <data:commentPostedByMsg/> in the template.


    Rate beat on the right hand side of the main page shows the latest rated records among all the sites using rating widget.

    You can also see the statistics of all rated records of a certain website. You can administer your widgets and see more detailed statistics here.

    Below there's an example of how rating may look like in your blog.
Rating widgets for websites, blogs and comments, 4.18 out of 5 based on 104 ratings

  1. how do i add my own rating instead of users? Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  2. What exactly do you mean by "my own rating"? If you want to not allow user to change rating it'd be better to use static images. But I like the idea though, I'd probably add a parameter "maxvotes", so that users might not vote more than a certain amount of times and if you'll set it to 1 and vote yourself, you'd get what you want (if I understood you correctly). Check the updates.

  3. Thank you. Very nice. I added the appropriate Blogger Code and styles, but they are not seen when using Internet Explorer. I can see it perfectly using my Android Phone, however.

    Thank you.

  5. hello my friend...very good job and i am using five stars which works excellent... i have a question: Is there a way to display in the sidebar the top rated posts by users? or in another page of my blog to have the top rated posts? thx in advance

    1. Hello MathHandler. In short, yes it's possible.

      First, you can get statistics on stats page:
      http://all-rate.appspot.com/eng/stats - type in URL of your blog and check what it shows


      Second, you can setup a separate page on your website (or blog). On that page you need to make a JS call like this:
      <script type='text/javascript' src='http://all-rate.appspot.com/stats?url=http://fruitfulbookmarks-ru.blogspot.com/&callback=callbackStats'></script>
      where ?url=... should be URL of your blog or website, it'll show you the same table as all-rate stats page mentioned above, but to make it working you need also to copy 3 JS functions from http://all-rate.appspot.com/js/common.js and make them available on that page (by copying them entirely on a page or in a separate js file which you include in HTML):
      - callbackStats
      - getURLData
      - callbackURL
      You can have your own realizations of these functions to make stats look like you need and reorder rows as you need - this is also the way how you can make a sidebar (tough, yes :)). One thing to remember that it shows only the records having 1 or more votes, the reason for this is that if you'll show all the pages with ratings, it'll also show you previews (like when you're writing new blogger post which is not yet published) - you don't want them to appear on stats, as stats is currently completely public. Also, you can avoid a page to be added to stats if you call widget with &top=no parameter in URL. And one more thing: I see your profile is closed to view by public, probably so is your blog - this does mean my script will not be able to read titles of your pages and instead of titles you'll see something like "access denied" (URL will remain though). To change this'll need to modify those 3 functions.

      I'll definitely make a nice-looking customizable sidebar after I will define how to arrange records in this "top-rated" widget. Which is better: page with 1 5-grades or page with 2 4-grades; page with 10 1-grades or page with 2 3-grades. I need to invent (or steal) some formula taking into consideration all possible kinds of ratings I have. Currently it's only amount of stars to consider, but later there'll be more parameters.

      Delete
    2. I want to do exactly the same thing. Ranking of the highest ratings in the sidebar.. but I don't know much about js. Is there a tutorial for this? or a widget?

      Delete
    3. It dosen't work correctly if someone have star ratings and polls on each post. When I make this tops sidebar it shows incorrect average rating (different than on each posts).
      For eg. on post "98" it shows (rating:3.8 | votes: 6 |views: 118), on sidebar it shows post "98" (6). Same here https://manage.graddit.com/account/tops on preview when I chose criteria "average rating" it shows 6 instead of 3.8.

      Delete
    4. Got it. I'll modify it to exclude polls from tops sometime soon.

      Delete
    5. Anytime soon? Is there some kind of temporary solution?

      Delete
    6. It was fixed and polls should be gone from tops by now. Still see them? URL example would be helpful.

      Delete
    7. Here you can check how it looks:
      http://mlodewino.blogspot.com/p/top.html
      post 131 should be 4.5 instead of 5
      post 84 should be 3.4 instead of 5

      I can send you on email my graddit account secret key if you want check it there.

      Delete
    8. For some reason you have duplications: same pages but different rating IDs (with rating_ prefix and without). I'll provide an option to delete wrong ratings in admin, so that you could do it yourself.

      Delete
    9. I deleted all ratings. I waited a few days for new one. I have made new top and it still shows wrong ratings.

      eg.
      http://mlodewino.blogspot.com/p/top.html
      post 14 should be 2,7 instead 5

      Delete
    10. It seems there was an error that forced tops to use rating of the latest vote, not the average. Should be working fine now. To wipe the tops cache you can log in and just save corresponding top.

      Delete
    11. Still something wrong.

      http://mlodewino.blogspot.com/p/top.html

      -post 103 should be 5 instead 5.4 (how there could be avarge 5.4 if max is 5?)
      -also it try to make avarge from my info page (not post)
      -post 78 is 3 and should be 3.7
      -post 96 is 4.07692307692 instead of 3.3

      Delete
    12. Rating more than 5 come from the old history when polls counted as regular ratings. I've update those history records manually, so it should work now. Also, there's fix for wrong ratings.

      Delete
    13. Thanks. It's working fine now.
      Why some ratings are displayed like this:(4.73076923077) and other normal, like this (4,7). Is there way to force all to display one decimal place?

      Delete
    14. Well, initially these values were not intended to be displayed to users, it's an admin thing. I'll format the output.

  7. Hello,

    how to show this widget in selected posts only?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You need to take code from Generic tab and add to your post (not template!) - if you're asking about blogspot. If it's a regular page then take Generic code and put it into HTML code of that page.

      Delete
    2. And yes, every time you'll have to get back to http://graddit.com and take Generic code for every new post/page or invent new rating ID yourself. Another way (for blogspot) is to copy Blogger code into the template as described and also put the desired conditions into that template, but the blogger templates aren't very flexible, so it depends on what you want.

    1. You can change it with styles: copy the styles from http://graddit.com/css/graddit.css into your template/html page and change corresponding elements size; or deploy css file to a free hosting and change styles in the file, include that new file in the HEAD section. If you need an advice on styles give me the link (here on send to fruitfulbookmarks@gmail.com") and describe what exactly you want.

  10. what abt get a callback for just one post with stars? I only want to show the rating feedback at the top of my post and the voting at the bottom? or be able to show both voting at the top and the bottom of the post. This is for blogger.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Is it for a post page (containing only one post)? If so, it should be possible to add in the template as many ratings as you want, even if that will be the ratings with the same IDs. Also you can pass name of a JS callback function and then process ratings data as you want in this function: show results on top of a post, for example, but you might need to change the template. Give more details (maybe a drawing) and I'll try to advice you how to do it.

      Delete
    2. basically I have a summary preview of each post on the front page; at the top of each post, there is title, date and comment and I want to add the ratings there and I also want to add it at the end of the post so that after a reader is done reading he/she can also access it at the bottom.

      So I want it to either show the stars (the result of the stored ratings) or the stars that can be used for voting at the top of each post. and to only show stars that can be used for voting at the bottom of each post.

      Delete
    3. I've tried to use your code twice in one post page but it only shows once.

      Delete
    4. To add 2 ratings at the same page you should have different div IDs and pass them to rating script, meaning in code instead of ...div expr:id='data:post.id'... it should be something like this:
      ...div expr:id='data:post.id-top'...
      and
      ...div expr:id='data:post.id-bottom'...

      and these IDs (with -top and -bottom) should be then passed in the parameters, something like this:
      &id=" + data:post.id + "-top"

      Because of the specific character of the blogger templates it can be not very trivial to do. I wouldn't recommend doing this, instead I would add a separate div on top of each post (in the template), for example with id='top_rating_stats' and write a callback JS function that will get ratings data and then dynamically insert stars in this div. I understand it's kind of high-level explanation, I'll try to prepare a tutorial and post it in this blog.

      Delete
    5. okay thank you. I look forward to the tutorial.

  11. Can this ratings be used in the Google SERPS ?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Do you mean rich snippets, that Google is using to show the stars on the search results page? Basically these snippets is just HTML code built into your pages. Currently widget is all javascript, meaning it's loading data from the server when your page is already loaded. When google search crawler downloads your page it sees only the JS calls. I heard their engine is smart enough to run some JS, but never tried it. I was going to implement snippets and have some experiments to figure out how google works with dynamically loaded snippets, but honestly saying I'm pessimistic about it. Another possibility I see is to get rating information on the server side (of your server), cache it, generate snippets and send it to user as a part of HTML, but it can work only if you manage your own server (or have a hosting) and run your website there. I'll investigate on it and write a post on how to work with snippets.

      Delete
    2. Tried JS. Just as I thought, Google isn't picking up the snippets created by JS. I'll try some other tricks a bit later.

      Delete
  12. Hi, your widget is nice and useful. I have one problem with the number of stars (I'm using blogger): the first time I add your code to my blog I changed the number of star to "3" but now if I try to change another time that number in the code the n° of stars on my blog remain 3 . Can you help me?
    Thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Once rating is created and stored in the database you can't change the number of stars. Possible solutions:
    - leave desired number of stars (5?) in the template; all new posts will appear with that number of stars; old posts will display 3 stars.
    - there's a trick you can use: each rating has an ID, for blogger that ID is posts ID, see the widget code: ...http://graddit.com/rate/rus/5/&quot; + data:post.id + &quot;?stats=...; you can add some letters before or after - that will change rating IDs and you'll see your stars, like this: ...http://graddit.com/rate/rus/5/giveme5stars&quot; + data:post.id + &quot;?stats=...; you'll lose existing votes/views/rating info though.
    - I'm going to implement an interface that will allow to manipulate ratings in admin panel; not going to happen soon...

  15. This is a great GREAT widget!! Thanks a lot!
    I'm having problems with the stars and stats, I can't put them in diferent lines (in blogger), like this:
    *****
    (rating: | votes: )

    I thought a simple "br/" would do it... I hope you can help me, thanks!

    1. I'm talking about the yellow stars code btw..

      Delete
    2. If you want stats (that rating/votes) on another line you need to have a separate div for stats. I've changed template for this blog to move stats below stars, so you can open source of the page and see how it's done; you can also check red stars code on graddit.com, it has separate stats div. In short:
      1. add div like this one:
      <div expr:id='&quot;graddit_stats_&quot; + data:post.id' class='ffbs_stats'></div> and separate it from previous code with <br/>
      2. send its id to the widget with stats= parameter, like this:
      ...&amp;stats=graddit_stats_&quot; + data:post.id + &quot;&amp;...

      Thanks to your question I found duplications in my code (not affecting the functionality though), I'll fix it soon. You know what, if you'll come few days later I'll add stats div to yellow stars code too, so that you could take it from there and just put <br/> between main div and stats div.

      Delete
    3. Thanks a lot!! I made those changes and works fine! Looks better this way, it's more flexible to add some css style.

      I'll come later to see the new code.
      Just a suggestion since you are modifying the code, it would be nice if it's even more flexible so anyone can add diferent styles to labels and numbers. I don't know how your code works exactly but maybe with diferent div for each elemnt would work.

      Again, THANKS A LOT!!

      Delete
    4. I made changes and yellow stars now have separate div for stats.

      Regarding styles and divs-for-everything concept. I believe this is not necessary for a couple of reasons:
      1. Most of the users don't need this; having additional elements and styles will make widget heavier while I'm thinking how to make it lighter.
      2. In fact you can have different styles for anything you want - you just need to use callback parameter that allows you to call your own javascript function that will get all the data you need (like id of container element, number of votes/views, etc.), so you just need to implement the desired behaviour there. You can refer to this post for details: http://fruitfulbookmarks-en.blogspot.com/2012/04/how-to-duplicate-rating-information.html

  17. How can i have multiple individual 5 star rating widgets in a homepage?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. 3 things you need to know:
      1. Each rating has it's own ID; open http://www.graddit.com, expand any Generic code tab and you'll see that in the call line there's something like this: ...src='http://www.graddit.com/rate/eng/5/r29jtd?... - this "r29jtd" is rating ID; refresh the page and it will be different. You need to pass different IDs for different ratings;
      2. There should be HTML container where widget will be displayed; again, check the code - you'll see there's <div id='rate' class=... div with id="rate" is a container; you should have different containers for each rating (with different ids);
      3. Same thing for stats container; good thing here is that you can remove stats at all and stats will be displayed in rating container automatically.

      So, to have many ratings on the same page you need to place on your page code similar to this (yellow stars):

      <div id='rate_1' class='ffbs_rate'>{[['<img src="http://img.graddit.com/img/star.png"/>']]}</div>
      <div id='stats_1' class='ffbs_stats'></div>
      <script type='text/javascript' src='http://www.graddit.com/rate/eng/5/r29jtd_1?id=rate_1&stats=stats_1&class_star=ffbs_star_img&class_star_set=ffbs_star_img_set&class_star_vote=ffbs_star_img_vote&views=yes&info=info&info_delay=2'></script>

      <div id='rate_2' class='ffbs_rate'>{[['<img src="http://img.graddit.com/img/star.png"/>']]}</div>
      <div id='stats_2' class='ffbs_stats'></div>
      <script type='text/javascript' src='http://www.graddit.com/rate/eng/5/r29jtd_2?id=rate_2&stats=stats_2&class_star=ffbs_star_img&class_star_set=ffbs_star_img_set&class_star_vote=ffbs_star_img_vote&views=yes&info=info&info_delay=2'></script>

      <div id='rate_3' class='ffbs_rate'>{[['<img src="http://img.graddit.com/img/star.png"/>']]}</div>
      <div id='stats_3' class='ffbs_stats'></div>
      <script type='text/javascript' src='http://www.graddit.com/rate/eng/5/r29jtd_3?id=rate_3&stats=stats_3&class_star=ffbs_star_img&class_star_set=ffbs_star_img_set&class_star_vote=ffbs_star_img_vote&views=yes&info=info&info_delay=2'></script>

      etc.

      P.S.we're not talking about Blogger platform, right? Blogger will work automatically if you use proper template constructions.

    1. What was the base template which you customized? You can try all these places with some small piece of text (like "!!!") to see if that appears somewhere in you posts (try to open individual posts too, not just main blog page).

      You can specify URL parameter in the script call (...&url=http://path_to_post...), in this case when user votes it will count against that page. That is probably not what you want if you expect ratings to appear on each post of your blog.

      Delete
    2. thanks for your answer.

  21. How can I change the size of the stars?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. there are several ways to change size of the stars:
      1. use your own stars; check the widgets code, you'll see the stars URLs:
      <!--{[['<img src="http://static.graddit.com/img/star.png"/>']]}--> - you can change them;
      2. customize graddit.css and use your own customized version;
      3. change the above code like this:
      <!--{[['<img style="width: 30px; height: 30px;" src="http://static.graddit.com/img/star.png"/>']]}-->

      The examples are done for Generic code; let me know if you have issues adopting this to Blogger platform.

      Delete
    2. Forgot one more: in the parameters there are css classes to be used:

      ...&class_star=ffbs_star_img&class_star_set=ffbs_star_img_set&class_star_vote=ffbs_star_img_vote&...

      so instead of using customized graddit.css you can add your own styles and pass their names to script.

    4. Service gets, stores and uses in future number of stars that was passed to it the very first time for a particular rating. In your case it was 2 initially and this value got stored for some of your posts. I dropped it to 1 for all of them and kept the number of votes and views. You still can see issues with some of your posts because of caching. It will drop in few hours or immediately when somebody votes for such posting. Soon it will be working properly for all of your postings.

  24. Hi! me again :) I was reading all previous comments about duplicating the stats info to show it in the same post in blogger. But is there a way of duplicating everything? I mean if I put the stars at bottom and the top of the post, is there a way to allow voting in both places? And of course using the same ID. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You can duplicate code and for bottom and top parts set different DIVs ids (and keep same rating ID) and it will display same ratings on both parts, but you'll have to write lots of JS to synchronize voting and stats (when user clicks on top rating you'll also need to update bottom ratings stats and disable voting). My suggestion: don't do it :)

  25. Use successfully Rating widgets on my blog but faced a problem with the stats when I try to enter the statistics (https://manage.graddit.com/account/eng) addresses this problem

    And something else in internet explorer does not show the stars

    1. Accessing stats with Google Chrome? Accept the certificate (proceed on that page on the screenshot) and if page appears blank after that you'll need to click on the shield in the URL address bar and allow loading unsafe content. This is an issue with the certificate and I'll try to solve it in the nearest future, but for now this is the solution. I'm also aware of the issues with IE when stars are not showing, will try to solve it with delayed ratings load option.

    I added star-rating widget, like this

Why!

  34. hey fruits isit possible to have 2 raiting widgets on the same page posts like a star raitings and a thumbs up and thumbs down raiting as well, is this possible?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yes, it's possible, in the widgets code you'll need to set different IDs for DIV elements and rating IDs (by adding thumb_ prefix, for example). Also be aware that two ratings can mess up your tops and related posts (if you're using these widgets). To avoid issues with tops pass top=no parameter with the rating you're not willing to see in tops.

      Delete
    2. Ok I will try that and let UNO how it goes also fruits can I add the poll widget as well so I want all 3 widgets tell me if this is okay, thanks

      Delete
    3. It's ok, but you'll need also poll_ prefix added to the IDs; polls should not appear in tops. Also you might want to remove all the stuff from widget code that has "labels" (except for one of your widgets) - these labels are there to save labels of your posts to be used in related posts widget. It will work, I guess, but it will be saving them 3 times increasing loading time of your pages.

    12. ok, you're almost there, now you need:
      - add thumb_ prefix to the div id ... div class='ffbs_rate' expr:id='&quot;thumb_&quot;data:post.id'...
      - add thumb_ prefix to the div id passed to server ...?id=thumb_&quot; + ...
      - also remove labels patemeter (...labels=labels_...&amp;url=) from the second code (for thumbs), it will speed up load time a bit.

    14. I don't see issues with this code. I guess the page freezes because the top widgets you added there are trying to call gradditLoadTopPosts function that is node defined. Remove callback=gradditLoadTopPosts from your tops code, it shouldn't be there on the regular posts pages.

    15. hi
      i removed the gradditLoadTopPosts from sidebar tops
      but still page freezing not loading

    16. I see you removed rating widgets code completely and still pages are not loading. To be sure if it's graddit widgets causing the problem remove also tops and see if that fixes the problem. In JS console I see that you have multiple issues coming from code that is not relatede to graddit (lightbox and relatedposts). Remove widgets one by one and see which one brakes yor blog.

      Delete
    17. i removed the original star raiting and all the sidebar tops and still freezing
      then i removed the lightbox javascript still page freeze then i remove related post javascripts and still freeze, even if all 3 of these are removed the page still freezes regardless so i take it must be the code then, know i have removed the code because it freezes my site, let me know what i can do to get the thumbs

      thanks mate

    20. Well, that probably means there was an error in the code I gave as I didn't test it. I suggest you to not overload your blog with the widgets as it slows it down. I'll try to implement it on a test blog, but not before I implement more important stuff, so it's not going to happen in the nearest weeks.

  38. Hey!

    The widget looks great, but I can't get it running - I can't find string "" - it just doesn't exist in my blogger template and I am using a standard Awesome Inc. layout provided by blogger, slightly customised.

  39. Yeah, that's it, thanks!:)

    Works nicely now when I open a post. Unfortunately, it doesn't show on the main page, before opening the post. None of the strings from point 5 works - no matter which one I put there it still doesn't show on the main page. Any idea why?

      <b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == "item"'> - to show only when you open a post

    2. I have the static_page one and it doesn't show. I tried both and none works for both places. I just chose the widget, chose "blogger" and copy-pasted it and the default is static_page.

If you want you can translate 'rating' to 'classificação', 'votes' to 'votos' and 'views' to 'visualizações' and then release it to us.

    A greeting from Portugal!

  43. Is it possible to configure this apply a rating to the actual comments user leave and not just have it appear on the comment page below the post? In other words can the rating appear next to the comments left by users in order to rate them directly? The instructions indicate using the "Blogger Comments" code, but that only yielded the appearance I described above… regardless great script, just what was needed so far.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yes, it's possible and yes, you need to use Blogger Comments code. You should locate proper place in your template in order for ratings to appear near each comment. Have you tried to set it after <data:commentPostedByMsg/>?

  44. Yes actually, and to no avail. It is entirely possible that something got missed, but it was tried a second time without result. An example of usage can be found here: bavardagewithmulberry.blogspot.com. The posting section works flawlessly, and thank you for that. Perhaps you can spot the error, as the Blogger Comments code was left in the template at what is believed to be the proper place. Cheers for your time…

    3. I can't define any issue with the presented code, but I can't see that ratings are called when I open a post with comments. Have you removed the code from the template? If not, you probably picked a wrong place for the widget call. Try something simple insted (text like "!!!") and see if that appears near the comments.

    1. > If I place "!!!!!!" next to "data:commentPostedByMsg" I show no results next to comments
      this is it, that means you chose a wrong place, probably you have more data:commentPostedByMsg entries in the template, try them all.

  46. hello.. can i know can i host the script rating n views in googlecode? coz for me when i load my site, its keep my blog slowing down and take more times to connect the graddit.com..

    it is possible? thanks..

    1. Hello. It's not possible for 2 reasons:
      1. googlecode is not meant to serve as a webserver that you need for server-side scripts. The scripts being copied to googlecode will not work;
      2. even if you have a server / hosting (which is not free, by the way) I'm not sharing the scripts;

      What you can do in order to speed up loading process is to get faster hosting for the images (stars). Have the pictures on a server that works faster for you and change the corresponding paths in the widget code.

    1. Please paste your entire template XML (with the ratings widget code) to http://pastebin.com and give a link to it here. Or send it to support@graddit.com and I'll check it as soon as I have time. Don't forget to tick "Expand Widget Templates" checkbox before copying the code.

  48. Greetings and congratulations for your contribution with all these widgets.
    I have installed the rating widget and i have been using it without any real problem until the last month.Now,there are great delays in the page's loading time.I did't change anything and some speed tests in the internet shows me that one factor of these delays is graddit.
    What have changed?Is anything i am doing wrong?

    My blog is garmovies.blogspot.gr
    Thanks in advance.

    1. Yes, there are delays due to high number of blogs using widgets - servers' performance sometimes isn't enough to handle all requests. I'm currently working on optimizations. What you can do now to make your pages load faster is to implement delayed widgets load (after page was loaded completely). I would probably write a post soon describing how you can do this.

      Delete
    2. I made all the changes and i have noticed that the page loads faster.Definitely,graddit doesn't delay it any more.I will keep an eye on it.
      Thank you for your instant response and help.

    can u help me? because...if u see at my home page, http://www.filmeuy.com/ it's need to load 15 ratings...

    ReplyDelete

    1. Just take non-blocking code from Blogger tab here: http://www.graddit.com/ratings-widget. IDs stay the same, so you will not loose your ratings stats.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It's not supposed to add views every time you refresh the page; it tries to count unique views. Also, there is caching that can lead to lower numbers, but they will go to normal eventually.

  53. Hard to say, usually happens if you take wrong code or put it in a wrong place. It's also possible that there's an error in the code. Save the template to pastebin.com and give the link here.

    3. 1) I want to thank you for all your work and respond as soon

      2) is that I would like other than just 5 stars if not 10 seconds I saw in your tutorial just had to change this link
      expr: src = '"http://www.graddit.com/rate/eng/5/" the number 5 for 10 being so expr: src =' "http://www.graddit.com/ rate/eng/10 / "
      but ago and are still appearing only 5 stars?

      3) I was wondering if there will be any way we as administrators can put a number of porpoises and views of the items at will and since that amount because it sigansumando the votes and views

      4) If you could explain a little better how to implement and to serve as the other parameters ("key", "id", "stats", "average", "amount", "votes", "data")

      5) ask why not put a paypal donation button? in my case I am so grateful with you I wanted to make a donation

      6) I do not tire of thank you for your work

      Delete
    4. You're welcome. Here's the answers:

      2) You can show as many stars as you want, and you're right - you need to replace 5 with 10. But it will not work for existing, already created ratings. Once you make a request it stores the number of stars and uses it no matter what value you pass later. You can fix it. Register here (generate the key to register, follow the instruction), then go to Statistics tab and there you would be able to delete old ratings with 5 stars, read more here.

      3) That's a planned enhancement: to allow read-only ratings and ratings with predefined ratings.

      4) Are you asking about callback function parameters? You can read about it here and here and refer to http://www.graddit.com/js/graddit-extras.js for live examples. Or describe what would you like to do and I will tell you if that is doable.

      5) I had a donation button, but nobody donated, so I moved to subscription plans, you can see them on Prices page. What it gives: no ads in ratings votes popup + some features like stars on Google SERP, fair cross-linking (implemented, but not yet announced) + most of the new functionality I'm going to develop will be open for subscribers only.

    6. If you want to change the number of stars for existing ratings you must use ☠
      If you just change 5 to 10 it will show 10 stars for all new posts and 5 for all old posts that have already been shown at least once

  54. Friend page loading very slow for me but that I have the code with Non-blocking: load widget starts after page is completely loaded (better user experience). Requires jQuery.

    fasts do not please me if I become premium lojas a better server? I'm desperate for the loading time of the page

    but I really like the grading system and do not want to remove it please help

    1. Although there's a time during the day when graddit service experiences higher loads, non-blocking code should not stop your other stuff from loading. I checked your pages, everything seems fine with the code. Besides, there's a short timeout, meaning if ratings can't load in few seconds they drop connection to prevent pages from being stuck waiting on graddit.

      Currently subscribers are not separated from free accounts, but I like the idea, I will implement it and will offer subscribers dedicated servers with better performance.

    2. thank you very much for responding and what I say because of the load times is that users have complained about it and besides that experienced several times myself

  62. Hi Evgeny,

    Sorry to bother you again, but since blogger updated it's format, I needed the hack for dynamic views again. And somehow, it still does not verify on my website... (Maybe because of the custom link? (TheFluks.com)). I tried every possible option again! Would it be possible to send me the login and password again?

    Sorry for the trouble and thank you again for your help!
