    Star Rating Field: Ability to use a custom image.

    Asked by marketing905 on January 13, 2017 at 08:12 AM


    Is there anyway to use a custom image as a star rating? I'd really like to use a custom one as the "stars" available to me are too small.

    Many thanks,

    Unfortunately there is not a way to change the images in the star rating field or increase its size without affecting the field functionality. 

    I will forward this thread to our second level as a  feature request, although we cannot provide an ETA or ensure this will be developed we will let you know as soon as we get updates regarding this.

    Hey Richard,

    I forwarded your request but as my colleague Kevin said we can't ensure you if this will be ever implemented or not.

    But by curiosity I tried this CSS3 property where you can scale objects. Maybe this can interest you.

    If you inject this CSS code below, you can make the star rating field a little bit bigger by compensating on the image quality:

    .form-star-rating {
        transform : scale(1.25,1.25);

    Hi, I am using your transform solution to scale my rating stars larger, it works great in Chrome, but changes are not visible on Safari / Ipad. Do you have any suggestions?

    You could add a vendor prefix so the code works in all browsers, here's a link with more  info about it: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Glossary/Vendor_Prefix 

    Here's the code given above with the browsers prefix added: 

    .form-star-rating {

        transform : scale(1.5);

        -webkit-transform : scale(1.5);

       -moz-transform : scale(1.5);

        -o-transform : scale(1.5);

        -ms-transform : scale(1.5);


    Hope this helps.
