Default How do I create different ratings for different forums.

How can I do this:

I have four forums. In two I want the same rating questions and another two I want different questions.

I don't know if that explained it but my goal is having four forums but some ratings creteria are not appropriate for certain forums. So how do I customize each forum?

You need to create an Article Type AND Ratings Type for each set of ratings you want. So if you wanted 4 different ratings criteria in each of your 4 forums you would need to create 4 types.

Then under the types settings pick your ratings tpe from teh drop down menu.

I hope this explains it. I found GARS very confusing at first but once you get the hang of it its quite intuitive

I only have GARS a few days btw

Chets right and I can totally accept his comment that it can be confusing at first - but his observation is also very common... once you play around with it for a bit, it really hits home what you can accomplish with it.

To reiterate what Chet was saying:

You most likely want to have 2 sets of ratings (admincp->gars->ratings). And 2 different types, each pointing to the ratings you want them to use (admincp->gars->types).

HTHs!
