Ajax-powered vote plugin for Joomla! with a fresh, modern look

This plugin is an extended version of the Vote plugin from the core package. You can display the rating stars before or after the content. It's possible to limit the loading execution only to the article view.

The votes are transferred via Ajax requests to the server which increases the user experience greatly (the page does not have to be reloaded completely).

You can add an intro text using a Joomla! language string and display statistics (overall rating and amount of votes) below the rating stars.

JVE uses the external script 'star-rating-svg' for the modern, fresh look. The library is a flexible, lightweight star rating jQuery plugin that uses the SVG format.
