Hi all, I dont want to be wiseacre disappear but have found a lot of problem with reviews system in oscommerce. So i try to mention personal opinion about it. My critics are the folllowing.. For review need prehistory of products. Probably the reviewer has product experriencies and can say something about it. osCommerce shop follows orders? No. osCommerce use the login force to make review which is a very bad behaviour with a press button. There would be better inform reviews after login as neither force login write reviews. Could customer found easy the reviews system to take a review? Hm.. Which customers write review? Basicly nobody unless somebody ask them. Do you remember to write a review yourself after 3 weeks of order? Could customers manage the self reviews in account? No. Are there any contribution for reviews? Yes but I dont find effective solution for it. I am not the supporter to write reviews as admin. I dont like to implement outside ajax applications to give out my shop commercial data. What would be better? First of all oscommerce has another problem. When I tried to rewrite of reviews system just realised that attributes system are not followed in reviews.. When I listed the ordered products by customers the attributes take a limit of options. How could customers reviews reflected to attributes? This main conflict founded between attributes and stocks too. V3 can handle this conflict with parent-child connections but we are producing in v2 at this moment. The best way would be to prevent option's conflict when connect attributes to reviewed product. How could we integrate the previous listed requirements? As @@burt mentioned in oscommerce appears to be totaly outdated topic I have to aggree with him. Previously I take a reflection about his post but I re-evaluated my opinion now. I have started to work out an alpha review module system for oscommerce. under test mode - ask pseudo review form in email after specified order status and date limit - cron management - alternative html reviews page for emails on http server - display statistical page from emails under construction for v2.3.4 - implement review modules in customer account focused on ordered products - implement review box for product_info page with microformats - change login logic to inform customers about reviews - enable reviews vote for visitors Known other conflicts: order language is not figured out in the core. To see in my github repo Estimated full reviews modul will be work out for v2.4 system If you have any question or remark it is free to write here.
