  • suggested on Vote to set Editable to no Remove # of ratings
    I'd like to be able to show just the star rating and not show "1 rating" etc. Also, I'd like to have the option to not allow visitors to vote.

  • @dvb Thanks for the suggestion! Yes we know that this feature could be more convenient in the future. I do not know yet when we will develop it, but we agree that it could simplify some tables...

  • It would be great if the "List" type would support multiple values. Currently many tables has a header with some yes/no criterias that could be simplified to just one field.
