Default Overall Ratings

I am using GARS to run my comic reviews forum and currently have ratings for Art and Writing.

However quite often a comic with poor art could be so good that the art doesn't matter to the overall score of the comic.

Is there anyway for me to add an Overall rating to the forum type then have only that rating show up on the forum display?

Why not use vB's thread rate for that?

I never really thought of that!

The only thing that worries me there is that some of my users are far too capable of missing that completely.

Would there be a way to either:
a) add the thread rating tool into the new thread template
or
b) going back to my original idea of an Overall rating, is there a way to tell the template to only take the value of one rating rather than the average of them all

hmmm... not really if you want 2 ratings (overview and individual items). I would suggest looking into moving the thredrate into a template and then use the template module to place it in a prominent position

So if I want just the overall (threadrate) to appear on the forumdisplay I would just edit the template so instead of pulling the GARS rating it pulls the threadrate instead.

Then for the threadview I would just edit the template so where the ratings appear it would put the threadrate below.

I think I can do that with a bit of trial and error!

Thanks for the advice
