I want to add a sort by rating on product list view. Product rating is not an attribute, so I can't edit it in the magento backend.

So I think the best way is to create a module for this problem, but I don't know how. Hope you can help me?

EDIT:

the snippet below from amasty works like the solution from http://www.fontis.com.au/blog/magento/sort-products-rating but both gererate the following error only on homepage:

Joined field with this alias is already declared with the following stacktrace:

It seems to be an error with the custom theme, but changing the alias not working for me, so I dont know where the problem is, hope u can help me:)

  • Where did you add the code? Maybe it's called twice... – Fabian Schmengler Feb 23 '15 at 13:48
  • for testing purposes just local -> code/local/Mage/Catalog/Block/Product/List.php, but I think you are right, because the custom theme shows bestseller products and so on (ktm-demo.com/nextlevel/index.php/?___store=default) on homepage so that could be the problem – Fox Feb 23 '15 at 14:25

To sort products by rating you can use the following code, taken from this module:

$collection->joinField(
        'rating_summary',                // alias
        'review/review_aggregate',      // table
        'rating_summary',               // field
        'entity_pk_value=entity_id',    // bind
        array(
            'entity_type' => 1, 
            'store_id' => Mage::app()->getStore()->getId()
        ),                              // conditions
        'left'                          // join type
    );
    $collection->getSelect()->order('rating_summary desc');

  • hi amasty, thanks for your reply I have tried something similar from fontis.com.au/blog/magento/sort-products-rating, but I always get the following error: "Joined field with this alias is already declared" :( ... p.s. I know that working with local is bad practice, but it was just a try – Fox Jan 9 '15 at 16:51
  • UPDATE: the error "Joined field with this alias is already declared" is only displayed on homepage. – Fox Jan 9 '15 at 18:04
  • any suggestions how to fix this error? – Fox Jan 11 '15 at 20:45
  • Try to use different alias, or, if the field has been already joined, just use $collection->getSelect()->order('rating_summary desc'); – Amasty Jan 12 '15 at 15:56
  • changing the alias not working for me and there is no other join too :( ... I added a stacktrace above, maybe someone can help me – Fox Feb 23 '15 at 11:20
