Placing Review Section In Block


I know now cs cart have smarty based HTML block. We can add direct .tpl code in blocks.

I am trying to place review for product in block then in tab.

Why: customers can see all reviews without any button click of the tabs.

Can any one guide me which part of file code I can bring into block.

Hope this information will be so helpful to all community members.

If I find any solution I will update . :)



Dear RR,

Unfortunately your message is not quite clear. But if you want to put the content of the “Reviews” tab to the special block, please use the following code:

{if $addons.discussion.status == 'A'}
{include file="addons/discussion/views/discussion/view.tpl" object_id=$product.product_id object_type="P" title=__("discussion_title_product") quicklink="disussion_link" no_box=true}

It should work with CS-Cart and Multi-Vendor 4.1.x


hi @ecomlab. it works perfect. I was looking the same.

How to displace rating review written by the customer if the review is not empty.

Edited: A test review is written and approved by admin. (review is shown up in review tab though)

[font=“arial, verdana, tahoma, sans-serif”][color=“#282828”]Could you please provide us with the dummy example of the required look and feel? Will try to help you [/color][/font]


Well, I just want to place the review tab content under the description section of the product page. I dont want the review should be shown in tab.

I want it to be shown just under the description section. (product page)

hope its clear.

So I planned to place the review code in block.

[color=#282828][font=arial, verdana, tahoma, sans-serif]It seems that the issue is caused by the strong cache of static blocks. Please check the article below and try to clear the cache[/font][/color]

yep its some cache stuff. Its shows up now clearly in the block.

How to hide the review tab though @ecomlabs.

I tried editing the review show to disabled. (by doing this the rating and review link under the product title disappeared),

I just want that review tab to be hidden any suggestion.

Thanks for helping me up in this thread.

Dear RR,

The tab can be disabled on the “Products tab” page:

And do not forget to clear the cache )

glad it works perfect and works smooth now like my client requirement.

thanks for your support @ecomlabs

You are welcome.
