If the resource you were rating at the time you clicked on the
Remote Rate link was your own, you may be interested in several of the Remote Rate a Script options we have available. These allow you to place an image (or
even a rating form) on your script's web site in order to increase the number
of votes your scripts receive. Please choose from one of the options listed
below if this is something you are interested in:
Please, no cheating...
We have had several cases where a script has been removed from the index due to cheating involved with Rate It! We usually find these, even when they are very obscure, either from user reportings or routine checks by staff. By being removed from the index, you'll lose more accesses than you ever would by falsely bolstering your Rate It! value.
One way to link to the rating form is through a simple text link, such as:
The HTML code you should use in this case, is the following:
<a href="http://php.resourceindex.com/rate?00177">Rate this Script @ The PHP Resource Index</a>The number '00177' in the HTML source references the resource id number in The pHP Resource Index database. You should make sure you find the script you want to link to, then click on that script's 'Rate it!' image which will lead you to the correct id number.
Small Image Links
If you're looking for a little more than a basic text link, you may wish for one of our smaller image links to the rating form:
The HTML code that should be used in this case is as follows, where all instances of 'red' should be replaced with 'purple' or 'green' if you want a different color, but nothing else should be changed:
<a href="http://php.resourceindex.com/rate?00177"><img src="/images/rate/remote_red.gif" width=300 height=11 alt="Rate this Script @ The PHP Resource Index" border=0></a>Remote Rating Forms
Our policies on the use of a remote rating form on your web site are very strict. If we find a web site in violation of the acceptable terms, we have the right to block all incoming votes from the offending web site or remove your listing from The PHP Resource Index entirely. The only voting mechanisms required on a remote site are the form types shown below, unless you get permission to use a different rating form scheme. Basically, we want the default vote set to '--' and the user must be able to freely choose from 1 - 10. Any site that we find that is attempting to submit all 10's or something similar when a user simply hits submit will be in violation of the remote rating rules.
Having said that, here is what the current remote rating form looks like. If we get significant user feedback, we will create others. If you wish to have something custom made on your site, feel free, but make sure you get it approved by us and that it follows the basic guidelines set forth above.
Using this form will allow users to rate your script directly from your site and the rating will be recorded. The above form is disabled, but the following source code will work if you simply cut and paste it into your web page. The source code (along with an explanation and details about items that can or should be changed) is shown below:
<table width=300 cellspacing=0 cellpadding=0 border=0>
The following can be changed in the source code above. First, if you want the form to be displayed in green or purple, you should change all occurrences of 'red' to 'green' or 'purple'. Furthermore, the Rate it! script allows you to set a referer so that it will return a link back to your site once the user has finished rating the script. In order to utilize this, you should change the value of the 'referer' hidden form field above to the URL where you are placing this form.
Thanks, and let us know if you have any questions,
The PHP Resource Index.
