The existing star rating plugin for jQuery takes too much effort (client & server) so I wrote the jQuery Rater Plugin that should reduce the complexity of implementing an ajax rating scenario on the client side. The server side is easier as well since the markup doesn't change after a user has already rated. This plugin can also support multiple raters per page.


$(function() {
    $('#rating-1234').rater({ postHref: 'Rate.php' });


  • Auto Ajax posting
  • Supports rating update and rating count
  • Shows previous rating before user has rated
  • Markup is same for rated and unrated
  • Supports step ratings (partial stars)
