The Product Review Module allows a merchant to offer reviews and ratings of products in an ecommerce store. The module is quite flexible, and is easy to integrate into any page. The merchant can control how many reviews appear on a page, how many characters are displayed, change the rating graphic, and customize the entire look and feel of all the review pages.

The module is installed by default in the reviews directory. You access the admin interface at:

http://www.your_domain.com/reviews/admin/

The admin interface allows you to search through reviews, approve reviews, adjust templates, and import sku/name combinations. The Configuration section allows you to control settings such as how many reviews to display, how to sort reviews, the admin email address, etc...

By default, we setup the module and the hosting account to parse .htm and .html for PHP commands, which enables the module to easily integrate into any webpage. To add the review code to any more infomation page (i.e. detailed product page), simply put the one line below where you want the review section to appear:

<?php readfile("http://www.your_domain.com/reviews/summary.php/PUTYOURSKUHERE"); ?>

Simply replace "PUTYOURSKUHERE" with the SKU of the product. If you are using a default product template for your ShopSite store, you can place this line of code in the "More Info Page Text" under "Edit Product Info". If you are using a custom product template, you can use the below code to automate the include in the product template under the "More Information" section:

<?php readfile("http://www.your_domain.com/reviews/summary.php/[-- PRODUCT.SKU --]"); ?>

If you need help in getting this code integrated in your pages, just let us know.

For those of you who already have your html pages parsed for Server Side Includes (SSI), the code below can be used for the review:

<!--#include virtual="/reviews/summary.php/PUTYOURSKUHERE" -->

Or if you are using a custom product template, you can use the code below to automate the include in the product template under the "More Information" section:

<!--#include virtual="/reviews/summary.php/[-- PRODUCT.SKU --]" -->
