Can't see all the stars given in reviews.

I've been reviewing stories in my archive and, though up to ten stars can be given, not all ten of them show up on the title bar of the list box. One story has five stars visible, but ten were given. Mostly though, only 3.5 or 4 stars show when seven, eight, or nine stars were given -- and no half-star options are available.

Where do I go to enlarge the field so that all stars will be visible.

Thanks.

This is by design.

The rating you give is not stars but a scale from 1-10, a common system that most visitors will grasp easily.  At the time of the story display all the ratings are averaged out and then applied on a 1-5 scale with 1/2 increments allowed.  It makes for a very compact visual representation of the overall opinion of the selection.

In theory you could change it, probably by editing the corefunctions.php file.

Thanks for your quick response.

I'll take a look at that php file.

And can I just say that if you're only going to show five stars or half-stars then it might make more sense for reviewers to actually be able to choose those options.

Thanks again.
