Release Notes

This web part is an ‘administrative’ level tool used to update a Blog site to a) enable ratings on the post and b) add the User Ratings web part to the site.

By default, Blog sites do not have ratings enabled and while it is possible to enable ratings manually (see the Ratings Web Part description for enabling ratings), the only way a user can ‘rate’ the post is to actually navigate to the Posts library in the site. In most cases, this is impractical as users may not have access to view the library.

This part overcomes this issue by enabling ratings on the Posts library automatically and ‘edits’ the site Post page to add the Ratings Web Part. This enables end users to rate items while viewing the post, a much better method.

Reviews for this release

Same as the user rating part - I love it when this stuff just works the way advertised. Nice documentation but this one is a gem since it showed me a few tricks about working behind the scenes.
