When I try to submit a post, I do not see the fields for ratings and reviews. And I also don't see them on the review page. But in the admin section for the showcase, I have it set to allow ratings and require reviews. Showcase
I have set the permissions and I now see the button. But my question is, when submitting an item for the first time should the rating and review fields appear as well? Or does a user have to submit an item, then click the button to rate/review it? It would be nice if both the item fields and the review/rating fields are at once.
Ratings and Reviews are SUB CONTENT (like comments) that are posted on a given Showcase Item. Custom review fields are for adding custom inputs to the Rating/Review input form (custom item fields are for adding custom fields to the item input form).
Showcase does have an Author Rating (per category option) that is separate from user reviews (which is for the showcase item author to set an author rating for the item).
Showcase Item Authors are allowed to post User Reviews as well (if you give them permission).
