    Default Enabling product reviews

    I inherited a site using Zen-Cart version 1.3.9a. The owner would like to have product reviews, which appears to be built in, but I can't figure out how to enable them. Can anyone help?

    Thanks,

    John

    Default Re: Enabling product reviews

    Depends on what you mean by 'enabling'. As you noted, that function is built in to Zencart and is enabled by default. Is the 'Write a Review' button on the product info page ? Are you using a custom template ? If so, a link to the site would help.

    If you're looking for the 'Reviews' sidebox, I believe that's one of the boxes which doesn't appear until there's content available, in this case, a review.

    Here's the site:

    http://www.quinceandco.com/store

    It's a highly customized site which I inherited. I'm guessing that some code was removed from the template -- but I don't know which code or how much needs to be put back to make this functional.

    Highly customized is right. Very nice job, though. Generally, the reviews appear in a sidebox. Both sidebox columns appear to have been turned off in your site.

    What you'll need to do is figure out exactly where you want the reviews to appear, and post back.

    You can turn on the "Write a Review' button on the product info page in Admin - Catalog - Product Types - Edit Layout unless that function has been removed in the files.

    OK -- I was able to restore the reviews function -- there was a chunk of code on the original template that was missing from the customized version. I added it and viola! They're back.

    But, the client would like the reviews to appear below the product description (and not on a separate page). How can I accomplish that?

    Thanks,

    John

    Hi John,
    I have the reviews button, but when clicked it redirects to page not found, i think i have some coding missing too, where can this be found?
    Thanks

    What i mean is, can someone tell me where i can find the default reviews code built in so i can add this code to my site. I have back ups to work from if needed. Must have been deleted sometime.
    Thanks :)
