hi, you probably have seen the thing 'amazon' and other sites use to grade and give punctuation to different things, something like, there are some stars (most often 5 stars), and you click on the star that represents the score you wanna give. i did something like that for a thing like a forum, where you give score to comments. it was working ok, and the only changes i am aware of i have done recently are only visual changes, no functionality. this time i have been testing the functionality and it is almost complete, and what i have been doing this time is just creating the styles, with no changes on other things. now i try the score thing again, it was working, now it does not. i thought it mat be because since i am changing appearance, i placed some elements inside tables and so on, so the path to those elements would change, but it should not be the case, since i am not passing to the scripts all paths, but just the element names, and each element has an unique name.
i tried it in explorer and works fine (though slow, it may have something to do with the fact that now there are styles while when i first created there was none). the score thing displays some stars (not actually stars, but for the explanation), if you click on a star it will 'light all previous stars', or if you hover the pointer over a star, it will show that value while you have the pointer over that star, and show the real value once you move the pointer out. it was working fine in mozilla, now it does not work half of it; it does not change the pictures when you hover or even display the 'lighted' stars when you click over a star, just the 'empty' ones.. what the hell is going on? i have been in this project way more than i would have liked, and these kind of things, when i think something is working ok then is not for some unknown reason and just stalls this thing.. that gets annoying.
if somebody wants to check it, you can enter int his direction:
it wont let you set a score if you are not logged in, so you can use this test login
* (<-this is a test login, and this is the test location, it wont be the real one)
i want to know, what could have done that what was working previously is screwing it now. it works in explorer but not in mozilla, though it was working in mozilla previously, and working well and fast. if you want to give a score (actually, you cant, since the score thing is disconnected from the server), but to display the score format, click over the score already given to a comment (where it says 'calificacion'); and i am aware it looks ugly, this is not my main concern at the moment, i'll change the scoring appearance later
