Installable with the Extension Manager


This documentation concerns the Ratings Application after changes performed on XWiki 12.9RC1, for documentation prior to that version please check this page.

This application allows to rate XWiki pages.
By default, the ratings application allows to perform Ratings on a scale of 5 stars, and performs an automatic computation of the average rating for each pages. 

This application is based on the Ratings API, you might find more details to customize or create your own rating application.


Rating stars displayed in XWiki pages.

Rating stars displayed in Extension Manager.


The administration page for Ratings is available under the social category, and allows to disable or enable the application.
It's enabled by default, not that disabling it won't remove the Ratings data.

Prerequisites & Installation Instructions

We recommend using the Extension Manager to install this extension (Make sure that the text "Installable with the Extension Manager" is displayed at the top right location on this page to know if this extension can be installed with the Extension Manager). Note that installing Extensions when being offline is currently not supported and you'd need to use some complex manual method.

You can also use the following manual method, which is useful if this extension cannot be installed with the Extension Manager or if you're using an old version of XWiki that doesn't have the Extension Manager:

  1. Log in the wiki with a user having Administration rights
  2. Go to the Administration page and select the Import category
  3. Follow the on-screen instructions to upload the downloaded XAR
  4. Click on the uploaded XAR and follow the instructions
  5. You'll also need to install all dependent Extensions that are not already installed in your wiki
