Hi,

How do we set the review section on Magento so customers do not have to login to leave a product review. Currently they have to login which seems to be putting them off. Is there a setting we have missed?

Hello

There are some solutions for this case:
- System > Configuration > Advanced > Advanced > Mage_Review > Enable > Save Config.
- System->Configuration, then click on “Catalog”. Then click on Product Reviews and Select Yes to enable or No to disable and click on save config button.
- read this “how to”: http://www.magentocommerce.com/knowledge-base/entry/how-do-i-configure-and-use-the-reviews-and-ratings-module

If this does not help, try this solutions:
in file app/design/frontend/default/your_theme/layout/review.xml add this code:

<catalog_product_view>
       <
reference name="product.info">
               <
block type="review/product_view_list" name="product.info.product_additional_data" as="review_page_product_additional_data" template="review/product/view/list.phtml">
                    <
block type="review/form" name="product.review.form" as="review_form">
                        <
block type="page/html_wrapper" name="product.review.form.fields.before" as="form_fields_before" translate="label">
                            <
label>Review Form Fields Before</label>
                            <
action method="setMayBeInvisible"><value>1</value></action>
                        </
block>
                    </
block>
                </
block>
       </
reference>
</
catalog_product_view>

In file app/design/frontend/default/your_theme/template/catalog/produc/view.phtml add this line:

<?php echo $this->getChildHtml('review_page_product_additional_data'?>

The only thing you need to do is to set this field to ‘Yes’:
System->Configuration->Catalog->Product reviews->Allow Guests to Write Reviews.

And clear the cache just in case,
Marius.
