Improvements to Ratings and Reviews

Description

(Putting these in one ticket though the listed improvements cover both the ratings widget and the reviews section.)

There are a few things we can do to improve ratings and reviews:

  • Change all empty stars to be grey in color, instead of yellow. This is on the single view in both places (ratings and reviews) and in the homepage/search result cards.
  • Remove blue underline when hovering the ratings number (in the widget).
  • Show total number of reviews in ratings widget (similar to homepage).
  • In the reviews section, decrease the spacing between the stars and review itself (see screenshot for section).
  • Remove the on-hover blue underline entirely from the "Read all [n] reviews" and "See all" ratings links, to match the "Read more" links elsewhere.

Replying to samuelsidler:

  • Change all empty stars to be grey in color, instead of yellow. This is on the single view in both places (ratings and reviews) and in the homepage/search result cards.

That's really hard to do without fundamentally changing how the stars markup to make half stars work. I don't think the yellow outline is working too badly.

  • Remove blue underline when hovering the ratings number (in the widget).

That seems to have been fixed in an earlier commit.

  • Show total number of reviews in ratings widget (similar to homepage).

With the different sizes of stars, adding the total number just looks very awkward. I think having the counts per rating right below that works well enough on single views.

  • In the reviews section, decrease the spacing between the stars and review itself (see screenshot for section).

I'll have a commit forthcoming on that.

  • Remove the on-hover blue underline entirely from the "Read all [n] reviews" and "See all" ratings links, to match the "Read more" links elsewhere.

#3373 will cover that.
