What's the one thing that we all look at before purchasing a product online? Product reviews! When we saw that Craft Commerce didn't have a product review system built in we decided to build one ourselves. We're happy to announce that you can now purchase this plugin through our website!
About The Plugin
Just like our last plugin, this one was also created out of necessity. It's almost surprising that it wasn't included but it did give us the opportunity to build a plugin that can help our fellow developers out, similar to our first plugin, Popular Products. After discussing the most essential qualities of a review system we decided that the plugin should:
- be completely devoid of styling so that it easily drops into an existing stylesheet
- allow users with an account to leave product reviews
- encourage users without an account to sign up
- require reviews to have a comment and a 1-5 rating
- restrict reviews to one review per user per product
- flag reviews as 'pending' when they're created
- build a backend that allows admins to manually approve reviews
- show a list of approved reviews on each product page
We were able to include all of those in version 1 of this plugin and welcome outside opinions for a future version release.
