I'm using Clickable star ratings for my e-commerce web site. I have followed the instructions provided within this tutorial:


Now I'm trying to accomplished that star rating is required entry. So when I use the class name "required-entry" in the following code of line:

<input type="radio" name="ratings[<?php echo $_rating->getId() ?>]" id="<?php echo $this->escapeHtml($_rating->getRatingCode()) ?>_<?php echo $_option->getValue() ?>" value="<?php echo $_option->getId() ?>" class="radio rating-input" />

just at the end of the code where is says: class=radio rading-input i have made the change so it looks: class=radio rading-input required-entry

Now star rating becomes required-entry, but it becomes required-entry for all the five starts - and i need to make five stars required-entry as one field.

I did same thing but the different way. Instead of putting required-entry class to radio, I add new validation rule to that form.

Please put below code in your review form page, it might be work for you:

<script type="text/javascript">
    var dataForm = new VarienForm("review-form", true);

                ['validate-rating', '<?php echo $this->__('Please select one of each of the ratings above') ?>', function (v) {
                            return false;


Here is the output of validation: enter image description here

Let me know if you have query for the same.

For single rating option:

  • Great, happy coding ... :) Feb 2, 2016 at 10:29
  • Hi again. Sorry my bed. I just noticed that when I do not select star rating it asks me to select one of five start - which is OK. But. than again, when I select one star, it still keeps me asking to select the star? Any idea?

  • How many rating options are enabled in your store, it will prompt you for all required rating option in my case it is Quantity, Price & Value. I need to select star for each rating. Feb 2, 2016 at 10:50
  • Where is only one option in my case, which is the Value. Thanks.
