By default magento 2 review structure is like this -

/templates/review.phtml and inside it you have - /product/view/list.phtml and Magento_Review/templates/form.phtml files.

form.phtml file is called using <?= $block->getChildHtml() ?> in review.phtml file

What I want to do - remove that getChildHtml part from review.phtml file to make form disappear. So far I get it to work. I have successfully removed my review form. Now I want to add my form back but inside list.phtml file and call it using getChildHtml. How can I do this? So far what I have tried ended with no luck.

Final result should be that in list.phtml file I call my form like this - <?= $block->getChildHtml('review_form') ?> and it should appear in place I put him

Thank you for any advice! :)

  • Can you add the full path of file where you want to add the review form? – Sukumar Gorai Dec 18 '18 at 10:19
  • @SukumarGorai Inside - /module-review/view/frontend/templates/product/view/list.phtml – help Dec 18 '18 at 10:20
  • And where are you calling the list.phtml? – Sukumar Gorai Dec 18 '18 at 10:25
  • @SukumarGorai In its default place - inside review.phtml file. Basically what I want to do - remove form from review.phtml file and call it inside list.phtml file – help Dec 18 '18 at 10:33

You can do this by following steps:

Step 1(Adding form in review list.phtml):

Create review_product_listajax.xml under below location:


with below content:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<layout xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:View/Layout/etc/layout_generic.xsd">
    <referenceBlock name="product.info.product_additional_data">
        <block class="Magento\Review\Block\Form" name="product.review.form" as="review_form">
            <block class="Magento\Framework\View\Element\FormKey" name="formkey"/>
            <container name="product.review.form.fields.before" as="form_fields_before" label="Review Form Fields Before"/>

Step 2:

Copy the below file:


to your theme:


and add the <?= $block->getChildHtml() ?> code block to desired location of that file.

Step 3(remove form from default location):

Create catalog_product_view.xml to below location:


and add the below content:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<page xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:View/Layout/etc/page_configuration.xsd">
        <referenceBlock name="reviews.tab">
            <referenceBlock name="product.review.form" remove="true"/>

Above code will remove the default form place and add ti list block. Flush the cache and test.

  • Hey, just noticed that my reviews arent saved anymore. Submitted review but didnt appear in reviews (also no message was shown that review successfully saved). And I also noticed that in console there is error - "magento 2 syntaxError: Unexpected token u in JSON at position 0" Can you help please? – help Dec 18 '18 at 13:47
  • You need to check the submit url of your form if its not showing correctly then you need to add the url correctly . – Sukumar Gorai Dec 18 '18 at 13:49
  • url seems to be correct. Noticed if I delete "review_product_listajax.xml" then no error is thrown, so some part is missing in that file probably – help Dec 18 '18 at 13:55
