Content Rating System and Feed Manager Improvements

Just a quick post to mention some new goodness that has landed in the mojoPortal code repository.

Content Rating System

I just completed the first version of the Content Rating System. Its built into the core in such a way that it can be used across features. So far I've integrated it into the Html Content Mdodule and the Blog, but there are lots of other places where I plan to use it too such as for product ratings in the WebStore feature.

It has an option to also allow feedback comments:

but I haven't yet implemented a UI for reviewing or showing the comments.

On this site I've configured it just for rating without comments in the blog (since it already has comments) but in the documentation pages like here, I've enabled the comments. I've got mixed feelings about it in terms of the comments because I also plan to implement a threaded comment feature that can be integrated into any of the features so that threaded dicussions can be attached to any content. When that is ready it may make this comment feature for the ratings less useful.

Feed Manager Improvements

Huge thanks to Walter Ferrari for his improvements to the Feed Manager! We now have support for Atom feeds and the really cool new feature is an option for selective publishing. With selective publishing you can subscribe the Feed Manager instance to a bunch of feeds and then selectively publish just the posts you like from those feeds.

You can try these features now on

I expect to make a new release of mojoPortal to include these features within days.
