Create review like module in magento

I have created a module by which we can marked product review helpful or not
Create a table
  `product_id` int(11) NOT NULL,
  `review_id` int(11) NOT NULL,
  `customer_id` int(11) NOT NULL,
  `like` int(11) NOT NULL,
  `notlike` int(11) NOT NULL,
  PRIMARY KEY (`id`),
  UNIQUE KEY `product_id` (`product_id`,`review_id`,`customer_id`)

Modify review_detail  add two field like, notlike
Add the below code in the app\code\core\Mage\Review\etc\config.xml

Add the following code in your review page after the review description

      $like_url = $this->getUrl('review/product/list').'id/'.$_review->getEntityPkValue().'/rev/'.$_review->getReviewId().'/lik/';                                                                     
               <p class="rev_h"> Was this review helpful?
               <?php if(!Mage::getSingleton('customer/session')->isLoggedIn()):?> <a href="<?php echo $this->getSkinUrl(''); ?>customer/account/login/"><?php else: ?>             
               <a href="<?php echo $like_url; ?>1"><?php endif?>Yes</a>(<?php echo $this->htmlEscape($_review->getLike()) ?>) /
               <?php if(!Mage::getSingleton('customer/session')->isLoggedIn()):?> <a href="<?php echo $this->getSkinUrl(''); ?>customer/account/login/"><?php else: ?>
               <a href="<?php echo $like_url; ?>2"><?php endif?>No</a>(<?php echo $this->htmlEscape($_review->getNotlike()) ?>)  </p>    
After that go to app\code\core\Mage\Review\controllers\ProductController.php
$customer_id = Mage::getSingleton('customer/session')->getCustomerId();
                                                $rev_id = Mage::app()->getRequest()->getParam('rev');                                                             
                                                $lik = Mage::app()->getRequest()->getParam('lik');                                        

public function listAction()    {                    
                                if ($product = $this->_initProduct()) {
            Mage::register('productId', $product->getId());
Now open  app\code\core\Mage\Review\Model\Resource\Review.php  and past this
public function saveLikereview($product_id,$rev_id,$customer_id,$lik)
                                $adapter = $this->_getWriteAdapter();
                                if($lik==1){ $like=1; $notlike=0; }
                                elseif($lik==2){ $like=0; $notlike=1; }
                                $data = array(
                                                    'product_id'  =>  $product_id,
                                                     'review_id'        =>  $rev_id,
                                                     'customer_id'  =>           $customer_id,
                                                   'like'                     =>           $like,
                                                    'notlike'                              =>           $notlike
                                                $res = $adapter->insert($this->_reviewLikeTable, $data);
                                                                $adapter1 = $this->_getReadAdapter();
                                                                $select = $adapter->select()
                                                                                ->from($this->_reviewDetailTable, array('like','notlike'))
                                                                                ->where('review_id = :review_id');
                                                                $no_rev = $adapter1->fetchAll($select, array(':review_id' => $rev_id));
                                                                                $condition = "review_id =".$rev_id;
                                                                                $data = array(                                                                                                   
                                                                                                                  'like'                     =>           ($like + $no_rev[0]['like']),
                                                                                                                  'notlike'                              =>           ($notlike + $no_rev[0]['notlike'])
                    $adapter->update($this->_reviewDetailTable, $data, $condition);      
                                catch(Exception $e){      }             
Also past  $this->_reviewLikeTable   = $this->getTable('review/review_like');  under protected function _construct()
Now open app\code\core\Mage\Review\Model\Resource\Review\Collection.php
And add $this->_reviewLikeTable     = $this->getTable('review/review_like'); under  protected function _construct()
And change array('detail_id', 'title', 'detail', 'nickname', 'customer_id')); in to
array('detail_id', 'title', 'detail', 'nickname', 'customer_id','like','notlike'));

Magento onestep checkout remove shipping method step

In this blog, we will see how to remove the shipping method step from magento onepage checkout
The source code of this module has been tested in magento 1.6 version but should work fine 1.4+.
Removing the shipping method step is pretty simple, here are the steps to do it. I am going to set the ‘freeshipping’ shipping method as the default shipping method so that the checkout process goes smoothly. Also for this code to work make sure the freeshipping method is enabled from admin. Attached is the source code for this module
open app\code\core\Mage\Checkout\Block\Onepage.php
$stepCodes = array('billing', 'shipping', 'shipping_method', 'payment', 'review');
$stepCodes = array('billing', 'shipping', 'payment', 'review');  

also open app\code\core\Mage\Checkout\controllers\OnepageController.php
find function saveBillingAction()
 if (!isset($result['error'])) {

                $method = 'freeshipping_freeshipping';
                $result = $this->getOnepage()->saveShippingMethod($method);
                Mage::getSingleton('checkout/type_onepage')->getQuote()->getShippingAddress()-> setShippingMethod($method)->save();

if (!isset($result['error'])) {
                    if ($this->getOnepage()->getQuote()->isVirtual()) {
also change
elseif (isset($data['use_for_shipping']) && $data['use_for_shipping'] == 1) {
                    $result['goto_section'] = 'shipping_method';
                    $result['update_section'] = array(
                        'name' => 'shipping-method',
                        'html' => $this->_getShippingMethodsHtml()
elseif (isset($data['use_for_shipping']) && $data['use_for_shipping'] == 1) {
                        $result['goto_section'] = 'payment';
                        $result['update_section'] = array(
                        'name' => 'payment-method',
                        'html' => $this->_getPaymentMethodsHtml()

find function saveShippingAction()
look on
 if (!isset($result['error'])) {
                $result['goto_section'] = 'shipping_method';
                $result['update_section'] = array(
                    'name' => 'shipping-method',
if (!isset($result['error'])) {
                    $result['goto_section'] = 'payment';
                    $result['update_section'] = array(
                        'name' => 'payment-method',

And also go to the app\code\core\Mage\Checkout\Model\Type\Onepage.php
add    if(empty($shippingMethod))
          $shippingMethod = 'freeshipping_freeshipping';
after starting of   public function saveShippingMethod($shippingMethod)    {

Insert rupee symbol instead of Rs in magento

We have previously posted the solution for INR symbol. But that was playing with code, finally we were able to solve that problem in easy way. Here it goes:

Step 1: Goto: lib/Zend/Locale/Data/root.xml
Make changes in root.xml
find <currency type=”INR”> replace next line with this <symbol>Rs. </symbol>

Step 2: Goto:  or click
save the page as rupee.js and save it inside /js folder of the root.

Step 3: Goto: \app\design\frontend\default\your-theme\layout edit page.xml
After this <block type=”page/html_head” name=”head” as=”head”>
add <action method=”addJs”><script>rupee.js</script></action>

Step 4 : Clear cache by deleting all the files and folder inside /var/cache folder. Clear cache from back-end as well.

Show all product in a page without pagination

If you want to display all product in a page  just open the file


Inside this file, the function that we are interested in is getLimit() beginning around line 723.

 $limit = 'all';

how do i change the price filter attributes price range with text

I am a coder but facing a unique problem. By default i get the magento price filter, with the price range but i want price filter like as given below:

under $50
$50 - $99(5)
$100 - $199(3)
$200 - $299(10)
$300 - $499(2)
$500 - $699(17)
$700 - $899(1)
$900 or above(12)

You can configure step of price ranges via admin panel. Log in into admin panel and go to System->Configuration->Catalog->Catalog->Layered Navigation. There select "Manual" in dropdown Price Navigation Step Calculation and enter prefered value into next input field.
