Completely Disable Reviews


Guest

Recommended Posts

How do I completely diable the "Reviews"?

I know I can remove the box from the right column, but then even if I do that, the ability to write a review still appears on the product pages. I saw a thread in here that explained how to remove that capability altogether, but someone said that doing so messes with the thumbnail images/click to enlarge.

Does anyone know a quick and clean way to completely disable the reviews?

Oh ok, this may not be the best way, but for now it works great-I just replaced the "Reviews" button with a 1x1 transparent image. Problem solved :)

if you want to remove the reviews side box do this. This can be used on any box.

 

add to stylesheet:

 

.hidden {

display: none;

}

 

 

then open up the box php file you want to remove find the

 

<tr>

<td>

 

That is above the php code. change it to

 

<tr>

<td class="hidden">

 

Now the box will never show. and you wont get errors

That's very complicated...

Just open your includes/column_left.php or column_right.php and comment out, or remove, the code for the box you do not want to be displayed.

//  require(DIR_WS_BOXES . 'reviews.php');

instead of

  require(DIR_WS_BOXES . 'reviews.php');

well, commenting the code //require(DIR_WS_BOXES . 'reviews.php');

and hiding/removing the button/page link is a first step

<? // echo "<a href=".tep_href_link(FILENAME_PRODUCT_REVIEWS, tep_get_all_get_params()) . '">' . tep_image_button('button_reviews.gif', IMAGE_BUTTON_REVIEWS)."</a>"; ?>

 

but it does not prevent anyone to access the reviews funtion using the link http://yourgoodhost/catalog/product_review...oducts_id=1xxxx

 

I´ve disable the reviews renaming the files .php to .disable , you can delete them but this way you can always recover them back.

So rename the following files

product_reviews_info.php - to -> product_reviews_info.disable

product_reviews_write.php - to -> product_reviews_write.disable

reviews.php - to -> reviews.disable

product_reviews.php - to -> product_reviews.disable

 

Then any access to http://yourgoodhost/catalog/product_review...oducts_id=1xxxx will return a 404 page error , but since no links/buttons refer to the review this is a good behaviour.

 

Hope it helps
