Rate TWiki pages for quality of content and relevance


This plugin enables TWiki users to rate any topic for quality of content and relevance of the topic across their TWiki community. Several display methods are provided:

  • A star rating is inserted in the topic header
  • A Review link on each topic shows a list of the current reviews
  • A link on a user page shows a list of reviews made by that person
  • A ratings statistics topic shows an overall summary of reviews by topic

This plugin also allows members of the TWiki community to rate any web page - and can be used to focus attention on the best (and worst) pages out there.

Please note that this plugin uses a MySQL database for storage of review data. Installation help is provided in these topics (included in the install set):
