hi,

it would be great to have a feature sending email notification to admin about each product review. since they need to be approved by admin, i think it would be really convenient and efficient to be informed about them in time, without checking the regarding admin section quite often.

best reg,
pesz

Hey, i have just realized that there is an RSS feed in the admin for the pending reviews, which is perfect.

Hi,
Also take a look at the Admin Email Notifications extension. It allows you to send email notifications about new order placement, new cusromer registration and new tag or product review posting. Be aware of what is going on at your store!

I completely agree that it MUST be included, and it is available in almost all other e-commerce solutions, but magento lack the notifications functionality at the momement. So you can wait for an update and possibly lost some sales ...  What do you think?

In the admin: Catalog / Reviews and Ratings / Customer reviews / Pending reviews

you can find a “Pending reviews RSS” on almost the top of the page.

Hi pesz,

Many thanks for that. Even though the RSS icon is there, I can never get to the actual feed - it asks me for username/password, but does not recognise them. This has been reported by other users in the forum.

Can you get to the actual feed by clicking that link?

Thanks!

hmm, strange. in Magento ver. 1.3.1 clicking that link results:
mydomain.com/admin/rss_catalog/review/

which does not work, but i have set up thunderbird to this rss earlier, and that link below works perfectly:
mydomain.com/index.php/rss/catalog/review/

try the latter link!

Hi pesz,

Ok - the second link is the only one I can get to inside my browser:

mydomain.com/index.php/rss/catalog/review/

However - it does NOT show any reviews that are actually pending. I tried submitting a review myself, and it’s showing under pending in admin, but NOT in the feed.

Also - this would meen that all pending reviews are public, as the RSS feed URL is not inside a protected directory?

Thanks!

for me it works fine and shows pending reviews.

since this page needs authentication, it is not public.

good luck!

Thanks - yes, it does work - it just takes a little while for the reviews to show in the RSS feed.

For those wanting to subscribe to the feed, you may need to enter the feed like this inside your reader:

http://USERNAME:PASSWORD@www.SITE.com/index.php/rss/catalog/review/

Thank you for your help!
