Stack Info

Overview

Simply drop a Rateit stack anywhere in your page, and start collecting ratings. The stack requires no database or any initial setup. A visitor clicking your Rateit stack will have their rating count toward the overall average rating. The stack is smart enough to know if a returning visitor gave an instance of the stack a click previously. So no one may sit there clicking the stack repeatedly giving a dishonest rating.

A visitor may click the same stack again at any time to change their rating, and the stack will recalculate the average rating based on that change, not treat the second or any subsequent click as a new rating.

Rateit communicates with it own PHP file to monitor and keep the rating accurate, but doing this via Ajax ensures that the stack has no need to force you page to have a .php file extension. This is critical to maintaining already established inbound links to a page that is currently of the .html type.

Choose between 6 different styles of rating icon, and you have full control over size, colour, icons, and text.

The are 6 simple language settings for the 6 possible texts that can be displayed underneath the rating icons at different times. Theinfo text is optional and can be turned off. You can see the stack in action on every demo page of the Doobox website, in the grey column to the right, and also in the live demos below.
