How to Display a single product instead of a category on Home Page- Magento tutorial


Product reviews helps in boosting customer’s confidence in your product. No points for guessing why they are one of the primary driving force behind conversion. Amazon is a great example of product reviews where a majority of the products are sold due to efficient reviews posted by their consumers.
To show the review form and product reviews on product page in Magento Theme you need to editcatalog.xml found here

You need to find catalog_product_view class. Inside this reference add the following code:

1, <block type=”review/product_view_list” name=”” as=”product_review” template=”review/product/view/list.phtml”>
2, <block type=”review/form” name=”” as=”review_form”/></block>

Finally, you need to add the following line of code on the product page inapp/design/frontend/default/YourTheme/template/catalog/product/view.phtml at appropriate place.

<?php echo $this->getChildHtml(‘product_review’) ?>

I hope this will help you show product reviews easily.
