Posting in the Magento forums has been disabled pending the implementation of a new and improved forum solution which should better serve the community.
For new questions please post at magento.stackexchange.com, the community-run support site for the Magento community. We will be providing updates on the new forum solution soon. For questions or concerns please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We plan to use the ratings/reviews in conjunction with a comments system allowing customers to comment or ask questions about a product similar to blog comments.
Is there anyway to duplicate the code for the ratings/reviews and strip it down and just use it for comments? Or maybe use the comments trackback funcationaly from Exression Engine to power this feature?
