I'm using Rating 3.2.3 and EE 2.7.2.

In my template, the tag {if rating_comment_no_results} never returns true and never displays its content, even when there are no comments for that rating.

Template code (this is on a single entry page inside channel:entries):

{embed="vendor/.ratings" entry-id="{entry_id}" vendor-type="{categories show_group="10" limit="1"}{category_url_title}{/categories}"}

And that embed looks like this (some pieces removed for brevity):

{exp:rating:entries precision="2" orderby="rating_date" sort="desc" img_height="14" img_width="14" collection="directory" entry_id="{embed:entry-id}" limit="200"}

<div class="vendor-reply">
<h5>Reply from {title}</h5>
<h6>{rating_comment_date format="%F %d, %Y"}</h6>
<div class="restrict-height">
<div class="overflow"><a href="#">Read more…</a></div>
{if rating_comment_no_results}
{if logged_in_member_id == author_id}
{embed="vendor/.rating-reply" rating-id="{rating_id}"}


And then inside that next embed we have:

    <label>Reply to this review <span class="expl">This option is available only to the listing owner</span></label>
    <textarea class="autosize" placeholder="Write your reply…" name="comment" /></textarea>
    <a class="btn directory submit" href="#">Submit Reply</a>

With the {if rating_comment_no_results} conditional in place, the second embed never shows, even when the conditional is true. If I remove that conditional it shows as expected so there's no problem with the embeds or other code. The conditional simply doesn't work.

Any ideas Solspace?

  • Have you tried a hard-coded string in the conditional such as {if rating_comment_no_results}No results.{/if} for testing?

Try {if rating_no_results} ... {/if}, which is the "no results" conditional used in the other Rating tags. Looks like the "comment" part should be removed in the docs.

  • {if rating_no_entries} does not work, however {if rating_no_results} does seem to work. Any possible conflict between rating:comments and rating:entries no_results conditional if one is inside the other and they both use the same conditional tag? Feb 9, 2014 at 8:54
  • Sorry! I meant {if rating_no_results} ("_entries" is definitely wrong). Edited the answer above.
