I made a quick fix for this situation of duplicate reviews appearing on the reviews page… and I’m not even a programmer. My goal was to also show product reviews on the product page but I also ran into the duplicate reviews appearing on the actual reviews page.
After finding out that it’s impossible to simply copy and paste the code from the review/product/view/list.phtml file (and being very frustrated about this) into the product view.phtml page, I tried used the code in post #9 of this thread to add the reviews to my product pages in view.html after the “Additional information” section and then fiddled with some formatting.
This worked but provided two sets of the same reviews on the actual review page.
So then I went back into the list.phtml page and commented out everything from just before the first call to get the toolbar to just after the second call to get the toolbar (I want every possible review to show up on this page, so why limit it to 10/20 per page?).
Now on the product page the reviews are showing and on the reviews page the same reviews show only once, while the form at the bottom shows up as it should.
Now if anyone can tell me how to isolate just the stars part of the ratings then that would great.
