Configuring Ratings and Liking

You can configure the way ratings and liking for different types of content work to make them a more or less prominent feature of your community.

Ratings and likings are a great way for users to get feedback on content and earn status points. When a user rates or likes content, the community sees that action listed in the Community Activity and Recent Activity widgets if you have them enabled (Admin Console: System > Settings > Widgets). For example, the community might see Joey Ramone rated The Rose City Quarterly Document or Joey Ramone liked The Rose City Quarterly Document. For more information about widgets, see Designing Pages with Widgets.
