Topic: Stars Rating - add default value + change rating on click instead of on hover

ungovernable free asked 3 years ago

Using MDB Pro, how can I set a default rating of 5 stars with the rating plugin?

I also would like to know if it is possible to change the rating only when clicking on the stars instead of changing on hover. The reason is that when filling a form its possible you will hover the mouse on the stars by mistake, changing the rating unknowingly.

Hi. To set 5 stars by default, add css .amber-text to each star. Unfortunately, at the moment it is not possible to disable change the rating on hover.

Hi, after adding .amber-text it is impossible to change the rating. It's stuck to 5 stars and the user can't change it. What I want to do is to have a default state of 5 stars but still let the user change the rating.
