Reviews for non registered users
« on: April 11, 2019, 10:45:13 am »
Hello,

how can I allow the review system for the non registered users?

They can insert name, email and they can review.


Thanks.


Regards,
Davide

In VM Configuration/Shopfront under Recommend a product, ask questions you can enable "Allow non logged-in to send a recommendation or ask a question"

Hi,

yes, I did it.
But with this shop anyone can ask a question, but he can't write a review.

Hello Patrick
You may be correct, permit users who have bought the product to review, means probably also logged in, right?
Have not tested this.

VM used to allow this, but sometime ago it must have changed. I would never let random visitors leave reviews - an invitation for spammers!

Of course, the customer can moderate and publish only approved reviews and the IP are saved in DB so you can filter spammer.

I dont directly sold it, because it need to modify the template to display correctly the reviews in front.
I only sold extensions in the shop, when i know it work without code changes.

A customer had a small trick, so that guest customers could review a product, as long the session is still active.
I should fix your bug, please support the VirtueMart project and become a member
