How to create a simple review/rating website?
February 19, 2013 7:59 PM   Subscribe

I want to create an intra-company website for my co-workers to rate/review widgets. It will not be a commercial venture. Is there is a free or free-ish way to do this?

I intend to do this as a fun side project. In my mind, it is something similar to "rate my professors", but pre-populated with widgets/criteria to rate. Users will not have the ability to add widgets. They will only be able to search for an existing widget by name, and then rate it along 2-4 criteria. Nothing too complicated. I have some techie skills, but nothing advanced. Is it possible to do this easily/cheaply?

If you want the absolute easiest way to do this, I'd install Wordpress with the poll plugin. Or a voting plugin.

Thanks, DarlingBri! Looking at it, I think I can manage what I want with a free wordpress.com blog and some plugins. Problem solved!

Great! Wordpress.com won't allow you to install plugins except polling, but that may work for you and if it doesn't. the basic idea holds for self-hosted WP.

The free wordpress.com blogs have an option to rate individual posts. I think I can manage with that, since this is just a fun side project only.
