    Star-rating form

    Asked by Verge on April 28, 2015 at 10:33 AM

    Hello. I've got a client that has hired me to build a fairly simple iPhone/Android App using AppMachine. AppMachine has a feature where you can drop in HTML code into a particular page to power a special feature you might want to add to the app that is not offered natively. 

    My client (which is a restaurant) wants an area that features their beer menu where the app user can go and "rate" a beer using a star-rating system. And then, once they've entered their star-ratings, they could click "submit" and be taken to a results page to show what the highest rated beers on draft are at that time. 

    I know Jotform offers a star-rating system, but I'm wondering what the best way to go about using this feature would be that would allow me the most control over the styling of the stars and the results page? Is this possible what I'm describing? Maybe even through one of your third-party apps or widgets? 

    Let me know what you think.

    Our stars field style can be customized. In fact you can change the style and colour from the toolbar, or you might want to use custom CSS.

    We also have visual reports that you might like to add as your custom thank you page.

    Here is a demo of what you might accomplish.

    The problem is, after refresh, my rating is not showing. Is like I never rate. You should make a database with IP. Someone rate the article/product, and the sistem register the options he made. If, it is an html form. The rating should have a script, which register the numbers of the pages he is put, Page1, Page2, Page3.. from the same domain. The script will memorize the option rating of a user (by an IP).

    Suppose I have a rating form in 900 pages. The script will consider and number the Rating Form different.
