    Default Building a new site and I would like to add an option for users to leave a review

    Hello all,

    I am working an a new web site that involves info about schools and I would like to add a way to leave a review of teachers. At the same time the user can create a profile and take part in community talk on a forum. Does anyone know of an add on script or app that could resolve my criteria?

    Thanks for any help or direction you can give!

    Check hotscripts and see if they don't have something close to what you need.

    What are you building the website on? A CMS like WordPress or Joomla?

    Hi there Russ

    Are you using a CMS or a blogging engine such as Wordpress or are you building it in pure HTML?

    The answer to your question would be to simply use a pre rolled CMS and add functionality that would acomplish the tasks you are having a challange with, this almost comes out of the box with the good ones.

    Check Hotscripts. I did a search on google for 'hotscripts poll review' and this is one of the results: hotscripts poll review

    If a script doesn't exactly meet your needs, you can frequently modify them to meet your needs.

    If using a random script from a place like Hotscripts, you should thoroughly review the code before using it. Many scripts have SQL injection issues.

    Hi, I am building it in pure html, its a responsive website.

    Check Hotscripts. I did a search on google for 'hotscripts poll review' and this is one of the results: hotscripts poll review

    Thanks for the link Bill this looks interesting. I found a couple other simlar widget type plugins, Star Rating System for Websites | Rating-Widget and Customer Ratings and Reviews | Website Rating Tool | Review Software but still researching.

    Hi Brian, is this because of possible conflicts?



    Thanks all for your help

    Nope. Security.

    SQL injection is one of the most common ways to exploit a website. Some scripts will, for example, send a request to example.com/poll.php?id=24 without filtering those query string values. If one of those is not filtered (say, the id), then a malicious user or script could do something like dropping your database. They could also do a cross-site scripting attack.

    Makes sense although I never thought to check for that. Write most of my own stuff anyway.

    What do you mean by a cross scripting attack?
