BlueSpiceRating enables users to rate a wikii page with up to five stars or to recommend the page. In the Namespace manager, wiki administrators can configure in which namespaces ratings or recommendations should be activated.


Users select a number of stars to provide their rating. Users can change their assessment at any time, by choosing less or more stars. The average evaluation as well as the number of assessments are displayed.

If a user rates the page multiple times, only the first assessment is counted. Subsequent ratings only change the average evaluation, but not the number of assessments.


Users click on a recommendation link to make the recommendation. Users can change their assessment at any time by recommending the page or by retracting their recommendation.

If a user recommends the page multiple times, only one recommendation is counted.
