The configuration for Fivestar is spread between the content type settings page, Fivestar site settings page, and access permissions. To configure:
- Configure the site-wide setting for Fivestar, Administer -> Configuration -> Content authoring -> Fivestar.
- Activate voting on each content type. For example, if you want Fivestar to appear on story nodes, use Administer -> Structure -> Content Types -> Story -> Manage Fields.
- Add a new field of type “Fivestar Rating”, and for its widget select "Stars (rated while viewing)"
- Enable anonymous voting.
If you want to allow anonymous voting, you'll need to set permissions for that. Use Administer -> People -> Permissions, and check the "rate content" checkbox for the roles you'd like.
You'll find these permission items under the "fivestar module" heading.
