When Review Rotator’s “Consider category” option is enabled, the software shows reviews from the current category only. These types of targeted reviews can help a customer decide which product to purchase or entice them to buy additional merchandise.
Any number of Review Rotator blocks can be put into place on your store site using the standard Magento CMS.
Some of Review Rotator’s incredible benefits and customizable options include:
- Instant installation and integration

- Review restriction to limit reviews shown to those from current category and/or subcategories
- Configurable number of reviews
- Minimum review rating setting (Allows only those with a minimum rating to be put into rotation)
- Display of last “x”-number of reviews added
- Rotation of reviews to avoid displaying results twice in a row
- Flawless integration into any store design or layout
- NEW! Display of only specified reviews
- NEW! Display of reviews only from specified products
- Easy 2-minute installation
- 100% open-source
- Meets Magento programming practices
- Free upgrades during support period
We'd love to see a rotating/scroll of reviews, but hopefully that will come in the future. Another great job by Aheadworks!
Just bought the extension after I had bought the Advanced Review extension. Had some trouble getting it to work on the front-end but AW fixed it quickly.
Would be nicer however to have the reviews sliding in a frame instead of showing them all. Perhaps in the next release?
- This is a nice little extension. it let's customers get a glimpse at products they otherwise wouldn't have search for themselves. We have it display on the right side bar. We installed tracking code within the links, and people are clicking on the links. It's easy to install. We had a glitch with our system when we upgraded the extension, but AW was great and went right in and fixed it for us. Great extension. Can help boost order amounts by showing customers the other products that they might be interested in.
- The extension is good, but lacking one MAJOR feature.. images! I dont see how a thumbnail is not a standard feature in this. However with the help of the excellent support staff, I got images included...
I really like having reviews rotating on my pages. I love the controls, of being able to select to not have the few really bad reviews show up all of the time, so that people can see the more helpful ones. The only criticism that I have of the extension is that any review that is long, cannot be read. The only link going directly to the product, which is good, but on a product with a lot of reviews, it could be hard to track down the one that caught your attention in the first place. Having a link at the bottom of the review that would go to a page that displayed the rest of the review would be ideal.
I love the review rotator on http://www.diffuserworld.com because each of the long reviews has a "Read More" link at the bottom.
