# How do I hide the rating stars in the product list when there's no rating yet?

Currently my Magento store shows 'hollow' 5 star ratings for all products without ratings (which is 99.9% of products as it's a new store).

I would like to only have the star rating appear if a product has received one or more ratings.

I would like this to happen on the search results view, category product list view (same I believe) and also carousel display (such as recommended products at bottom of product details page).

The code which I believe is currently calling the stars into play on the list view is in list.phtml and is as follows:

<?php if($_product->getRatingSummary()):?> <?php echo$this->getReviewsSummaryHtml($_product) ?> <?php else:?> <div class="ratings"> <div class="rating-box"> <div class="rating" style="width:0%"></div> </div> </div> <?php endif;?>  BUT perhaps there's a deeper level which needs editing so they don't show on a carousel (eg recommended products) also? I can't find any advice on this specific need anywhere and would really appreciate some help. Thanks. • An "easy" way would be to find the image file being used and erase the outline of the "hollow" star - this way an image is still loaded but is invisible until the other "filled" stars replace it. – Steven J Sep 14 '17 at 0:26 • before those code, you need to put condition and into that you need to check that, Is product has any rating or not. – Dhiren Vasoya Sep 14 '17 at 2:31 • I did think of the image replacement @StevenJ, but I think it's using Font awesome. (You couldn't have known that with the above info, sorry.) – Scotttiew Sep 14 '17 at 3:08 • I Post answer, please check. – Dhiren Vasoya Sep 14 '17 at 4:36 ## 2 Answers You have to do that thing using this code. <?php$ratobj =Mage::getModel('rating/rating')->getEntitySummary($_product->getId());$ratings = $ratobj->getSum()/$ratobj->getCount();
if($ratings): ?> <?php if($_product->getRatingSummary()):?>
<?php echo $this->getReviewsSummaryHtml($_product) ?>
<?php else:?>
<div class="ratings">
<div class="rating-box">
<div class="rating" style="width:0%"></div>
</div>
</div>
<?php endif;?>
<?php endif; ?>

• Thanks for your solution, I'll try all supplied solutions soon, when I can get back in and make modifications (some server maintenance means I can not go test it fully yet, sorry... long story ;) I'll see what works best, and choose an answer. Thanks again! – Scotttiew Sep 14 '17 at 22:29

If you want display if product have minimum one star then rating will display then try this code:

    <?php
$storeId = Mage::app()->getStore()->getId();$summaryData = Mage::getModel('review/review_summary')
->setStoreId($storeId) ->load($_product->getId());

if ($summaryData['rating_summary']):?> <div class="ratings"> <div class="rating-box"> <div class="rating" style="width:<?php echo$summaryData['rating_summary']; ?>%"></div>
</div>
</div>
<?php endif; ?>
