Item5768: "OK" button in star votes serves no purpose

It appears that the star voting gets submitted as soon as one clicks on a star so the "OK" button serves no purpose other than to confuse the user.

Possible fixes:

  • Remove the "OK" button on star voting.
  • Add autosubmit option. If set to "on" then star vote works as presently (vote submitted upon clicking on star) and "OK" button not displayed. If set to "off" then "OK" button is displayed and must be clicked to register vote. This option would be useful for polls that have multiple items to vote on.

By "star vote" I assume you mean a rating. Ratings do not display an OK button. Can you please paste in the %VOTE here, so can understand?

As you pointed out yesterday, a single star-rating does not display the OK button since it submits automatically upon selection. So perhaps the simplest solution is having auto-submit not apply for any voting with more than one vote item.

Took a deal of experimenting, but I found a really simple way to do it.
