    Hi aleksandar!

    If I was in your situation I'd proceed in this way:

    • Create a solution installing umbraco as Project (and not as website)
    • Add a new Project (Class library) to your solution and, inside it, create a new edmx generated from the database that should contains the rating records (I think three columns are enough: Id (pk), NodeId, vote). Maybe you can add a View to your db, which gives you the average vote for every node to retrieve more easily the pages votes average
    • Add to the Umbraco project a new surface controller containing two actionmethods: one to get the average of the votes and the othe one to set a new record in the database you created before
    • you can use an already existing jquery plugin to implement the ui of the rating.
    • everytime the page is loaded you can call the first actionmethod via ajax to retrieve the vote average of the page and set the js plugin
    • when a user click the star you should call the second actionmethod (always via ajax, posting to the method a model with NodeId and VoteValue) to set the value in your db

    To avoid multiple votes from the same user (if there's no login) you can simply use cookies (not the best solution at all)

    I hope this is clear enough, but if you are new to .net and mvc I'd suggest you to read some documentation about it.

    Best regards
