After installing Magento you need to set the Rating Visibility in the Admin panel. By default, ratings are not associated to any store view and the submit or a review will fail because of this.


To set the Rating Visibility do the following:

  1. Go to Catalog > Reviews and Rating > Manage Ratings
  2. Open each Rating Name and assign a store view
  3. Click the Save Rating button.

How to disable Reviews & Rating

  2. Set "Mage_Rating" and "Mage_Review" to Disable and click "Save Config" button
  3. Open the following file: /app/etc/modules/Itactica_ExtendedReviews.xml
  4. Save the file and refresh Magento cache (System > Cache Management)
