I have to implement rating like the steps here. But the problem is that I couldn't find 'Rating Settings' under 'General Settings' in List Settings page.

I tried this to configure in central admin .. but no luck.

Can any one please suggest what can be done.

You have tagged the question with SharePoint Foundation so I assume you are not using SharePoint Server product.

Ratings are NOT available in SharePoint Foundation. They are available in SharePoint Server standard and enterprise version only.

See the feature comparison here:


Based on your comments and link in your question, it seems looks like it should be available to you unless you started with blank site template. I just figured it out. Also check:

You can enable RATING feature alone by following Powershell command.

Thanks for sharing the editions comparison page. As I can see Ratings feature is available in Standard edition. Updated the tag info. – sandeep talabathula Jan 21 '12 at 19:35
If you are using SharePoint Server enterprise, you should be able to use rating. Make sure user profiles are configured and your web application is associated with user profile service. Both from central admin. – Ashish Patel Jan 21 '12 at 21:41

I could able to see the User Profile Service for under central administration. And, also it's up and running. still not able to see the rating settings for the custom list. – sandeep talabathula Jan 22 '12 at 5:28
Thanks @Ashish that was a good update and post is nice. I'm using Blank Site template and that's the problem where it started. But, for blank site when I activated Publishing feature I started getting different errors: The DataSourceID of 'TopNavigationMenuV4' must be the ID of a control of type IHierarchicalDataSource. A control with ID 'topSiteMap' could not be found. – sandeep talabathula Jan 22 '12 at 5:42
