Get product review info (independent) of review page

Featured Image

Here at Inchoo, we are working on a private project, that should see daylight any time soon. One of the requirements we had is to show product review info on pages independent of product review page. Let’s say you wish to show review info on home page for some of the products. After few weeks with working with Magento, one learns how to use the model stuff directly from view files. Although this might not be the “right” way, it’s most definitely the fastest way (and I doubt most of your clients would prefer any other :), especially if it’s some minor modification).

Here is a code to retrieve the product review info:


$storeId    = Mage::app()->getStore()->getId();

$summaryData = Mage::getModel(‘review/review_summary’)

/* @var $summaryData Mage_Review_Model_Review_Summary */


['primary_id'] => 147
['entity_pk_value'] => 166
['entity_type'] => 1
['reviews_count'] => 1
['rating_summary'] => 80
['store_id'] => 1


Just be sure to pass it the right product id number. Cheers…

    Hi, now i doing select all products that have review highest, or vote % highest, but when select with ->join, magento generate sql statement ok, but collection not ok. More detail, i need order by rating_summary but collection products order by entity_id. Actual i don’t understand. This is my code:

    			$collection = Mage::getModel('catalog/product')
    					->setOrder('rating_summary', 'desc')
    				->join(array('res'=>'review_entity_summary'), 'res.entity_pk_value = e.entity_id', array('res.rating_summary'));
    		$collection->getSelect()->where('store_id ='.$this->getStore())
    		$collection->getSelect()->order('res.rating_summary desc');		 

    Hope for soon reply. Thank
