Remove Ratings from Comments Plugin

I would like to remove the ratings option from the comments plugin. Especially problematic is the rating appearing on my item browse page under each item.

Ok, you will need to open up the plugin's files to find and remove the rating related data.

The folks who developed the plugin might have some suggestions:

Thanks Sheila.

I tried to reach out to them, but got no response. Is it possible to just hide the ratings on the item browse page and item show page, instead of completely deleting all ratings related data?

I don't have the plugin running on my installation, but it seems like the plugin.php file contains the
function display_rate($id) with markup related to displaying the ratings. I would start there, and first comment out all of the code related to that function, and see if you get the results you're looking for on the item pages and continue to play around with it a little.

You can always grab the files again if you need to start over with the original plugin.

I removed this from the plugin.php file in the comments directory:
<div style="text-align: right;">
Rating:   <select id=comment_rating><option value=''></option><option value=5>5</option><option value=4>4</option><option value=3>3</option><option value=2>2</option><option value=1>1</option></select>
That got rid of the ability for a user to see the little drop down ratings thing. Now I just need to figure out a way to get rid of the "ratings" header for each item.

Still in plugin.php file, I removed "Rating" from this line so that it would not show up <h3> <span style="padding-left: 10px;" id="ratingValue"></span></h3>
From this line,
<p> <span style="padding-left: 10px;" id="ratingValue_<?php echo $id?>"> </span></p>
I removed "Rating" and "No rated."
So basically, I think that I have gotten rid of the rating system by just not letting it display.
