Below is code in list.phtml showing products on category pages. I am looking to use the attributes (RatingSummary, ReviewsSummary) in related.phtml

<div class="product-name"><a href="<?php echo $_product->getProductUrl() ?>" title="<?php echo $this->stripTags($_product->getName(), null, true) ?>"><?php echo $_helper->productAttribute($_product, $_product->getName(), 'name') ?></a></div>

                **<?php if($_product->getRatingSummary()): ?>
                <?php echo $this->getReviewsSummaryHtml($_product, 'short') ?>
                <?php endif; ?>**

                <?php echo $this->getPriceHtml($_product, true) ?>

I found the below code on the web that might be a step in the right direction but does anybody understand how I can adapt it or something different so (RatingSummary, ReviewsSummary) will work in related.phtml

 foreach($this->getItems() as $_item) {
         $product = Mage::getModel('catalog/product')->load($_item->getId());
         echo $this->htmlEscape($product->getDescription());

I would like to use the (RatingSummary, ReviewsSummary) attributes inside the related.phtml Below is the current related.phtml code:

<div class="product-details">
                    <div class="product-name"><a href="<?php echo $_item->getProductUrl() ?>"><?php echo $this->htmlEscape($_item->getName()) ?></a></div>

                <?php echo $this->getPriceHtml($_item, true) ?>
                            $listHelper = Mage::helper('colorswatchproductlist'); 
                            $listHelper->showSwatches($_item); ?>
  • <?php echo $this->getReviewsSummaryHtml($_item, 'short') ?> in related.phtml didn't work?

1 Answer 1


you can use the blocks getReviewsSummaryHtml since the related.phtml has all of the methods from Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_View available.

So, in your related.phtml add the following

<?php echo $this->getReviewsSummaryHtml($_item, 'short') ?>
