    I am currently trying to run
    on my wpmu blog and there seems to be a problem with the db tables when i try to use the ratings plugin.

    To know.
    Post Ratings Version 1.11
    I have put the plugin in the regular plugins(not mu-plugins) folder and only activating it for one blog to get it working.
    I have no conflicting plugins installed.
    Running MySQL version 5.0.37

    Error details.

    WordPress database error: 
    [Table 'wordpress.wp_1_ratings' doesn't exist]
    INSERT INTO wp_1_ratings VALUES (0, 3, 'Home', 
    0,'1183026444', '', 'h216-183-19-' ,'Guest', 0)

    The problem is that i am running the plugin on a different blog wp_5 and what really throws me off is that in the uninstaller it says that

    Once uninstalled, this cannot be undone. You should use a Database Backup plugin of WordPress to back up all the data first.Your data is stored in the wp_5_ratings, wp_5_postmeta and wp_5_options tables.

    I have tried to activate it on a few different blogs and although the uninstaller information and mySQL databases have the new tables created in the right place thier just seems to be a problem when we go to store the values, which gives the above error always with the table prefix wp_1.

    I would think the error would be in the code(around line 700 of postratings.php),

    // Log Ratings No Matter What
                $rate_log = $wpdb->query
    ("INSERT INTO $wpdb->ratings VALUES
    (0, $post_id, '$post_title', $rate,'".current_time('timestamp')."',
    '".get_ipaddress()."', '".gethostbyaddr(get_ipaddress())."'
    ,'$rate_user', $rate_userid)");
                // Output AJAX Result
                echo the_ratings_results($post_id, $post_ratings_users,

    Any help would be monumental as I am at a loss and i know it will be something ridiculasly simple like a comma or variable name as these problems usually end up being (Note, I installed the origional 1.11 version again to make sure none of my code tweaking caused a problem and am still getting the same error. Also i only get the error if I am logged out if i'm logged in it simply shows the loading image then goes blank (I have it set so that registered users and guests can vote))

    I do think this feature would be really cool to add to my wpmu installations so that users can have some input on the rlevance / quality of posts. It is also very interesting because thier is a way to get the most voted, highest voted ...etc to show up on the home page or sidebar.

    Sorry for the length but i figure too much information is better then the people that say ...IT doesnt work please help me....

    That being said, -IT doesnt work please help me

    I am not gettign too far on this one I can't seem to narrow down the problem.

    Does anyone know of any other plug-ins that do user post ratings that works with mu or that works well and i might have more luck migrating to MU.

    Or of course if anyone can point me in the right direction for modding the plugin I am trying to use and getting the proper table values.

    sorry I can't help on this but I too, need a psot rating plugin, but not the usual one, star based, like from 1-5 instead I'd like one of those where you can give thumbs up or thumbs down so the end result is more like a positive or negative figure instead of some stars.

    This I find much better, but haven't yet found such a plugin. The closest I found was something called comment karma, which was doing this for comments => you could rate comments...

    You might try the Spotback Rating widget.
