How to move User rating
From Joomla! Documentation
The "J1.5" namespace is an archived namespace. This page contains information for a Joomla! version which is no longer supported. It exists only as a historical reference, it will not be improved and its content may be incomplete and/or contain broken links.
The only real solution for moving the user rating is a hack.
In version 1.5 mambots have become plugins, therefore you should look for the file
/plugins/content/vote.php and change
$mainframe->registerEvent( 'onBeforeDisplayContent', 'plgContentVote' );
$mainframe->registerEvent( 'onAfterDisplayContent', 'plgContentVote' );
You must hack a mambot, namely in file
$_MAMBOTS->registerFunction( 'onBeforeDisplayContent', 'botVoting' );
$_MAMBOTS->registerFunction( 'onAfterDisplayContent', 'botVoting' );
