Does anyone know how to edit the downloads section so that a person can comment on a download without having to rate it also (make rating optional). Using the Enhanced Downloads module and nuke platinum 7.6. thanks for any help.

that does let the comments go through without selecting a rating, like i'm looking for. but the problem is now, by not selecting a rating, it automatically rates it as a "0" and offsets the overall rate (ex. like if it was a 10 it will take it to a 5)... think it inputs the rating into a couple different sql tables, so maybe if someway could get it to not put a "0" for the rating when people only wanted to comment only. but i'm not very good with the sql scripting and the stuff like that. thank you for the help so far!

Thats a little bit beyond the realm of free help. It would take some work to alter all the files needed for that to function that way.

You would have to alter the table and a field to track if they picked a rating then find all the places the rating is used and alter those to reflect the new totals if no rating was selected.

about how far out of the realm of free help would something like that cost to redo/fix the script? lol

I will look into what exactly it will entail. There are quite a bit of functions that rely on the comment having a score. I will shoot you a price and time limit via PM asap.

wouldn't it possibly be easier to separate the rating and comments so that the rating part could be left as it is and maybe add a sql table for comments so registered users could just add comments as they want?

Sounds like you have a pretty good idea of what todo. Let me know if you have any questions.
