WooCommerce: Display Product Reviews @ Custom Page (Shortcode)

WooCommerce product reviews shows by default in the “Reviews” tab in the single product page. But what if, like me, you’re using custom sales pages and need to show such reviews elsewhere – by using a shortcode?

I’ve spent some time doing this for two Business Bloomer pages, the contact page (beside the request a quote form) and the Bloomer Armada sales page (just above the pricing table), so I thought it would have been great sharing the snippet with you. Enjoy!

Here’s my custom “WooCommerce product reviews shortcode” output on a test website homepage.

PHP Snippet: WooCommerce Product Reviews Shortcode

Once the snippet below is added to your functions.php, simply use shortcode [product_reviews id="123"] anywhere you like. Please note “id” is the ID of the product for which you want to output customer reviews.

add_shortcode( 'product_reviews', 'bbloomer_product_reviews_shortcode' );

function bbloomer_product_reviews_shortcode( $atts ) {
	
	if ( empty( $atts ) ) return '';

	if ( ! isset( $atts['id'] ) ) return '';
		
	$comments = get_comments( 'post_id=' . $atts['id'] );
	
	if ( ! $comments ) return '';
	
	$html .= '<div class="woocommerce-tabs"><div id="reviews"><ol class="commentlist">';
	
	foreach ( $comments as $comment ) {	
		$rating = intval( get_comment_meta( $comment->comment_ID, 'rating', true ) );
		$html .= '<li class="review">';
		$html .= get_avatar( $comment, '60' );
		$html .= '<div class="comment-text">';
		if ( $rating ) $html .= wc_get_rating_html( $rating );
		$html .= '<p class="meta"><strong class="woocommerce-review__author">';
		$html .= get_comment_author( $comment );
		$html .= '</strong></p>';
		$html .= '<div class="description">';
		$html .= $comment->comment_content;
		$html .= '</div></div>';
		$html .= '</li>';
	}
	
	$html .= '</ol></div></div>';
	
	return $html;
}

Where to add this snippet?

You can place PHP snippets at the bottom of your child theme functions.php file (delete "?>" if you have it there). CSS, on the other hand, goes in your child theme style.css file. Make sure you know what you are doing when editing such files - if you need more guidance, please take a look at my free video tutorial "Where to Place WooCommerce Customization?"

Does this snippet (still) work?

Please let me know in the comments if everything worked as expected. I would be happy to revise the snippet if you report otherwise (please provide screenshots). I have tested this code with Storefront theme, the WooCommerce version listed above and a WordPress-friendly hosting on PHP 7.3.

  1. Hey Rodolfo,
    Do you happen to have the addl css to turn the stars gold? #FFD700

  2. Thanks for this even i was looking for from last 6 months and finally i found this amazing blog and it worked for me but i have a query on the same, please go through this page as you can see the same results but i want product name along with reviews . is it possible?

    1. Thanks for your comment Piyush! You need to specify the product ID inside the shortcode, so why can’t you add the product name by “hand” just above the shortcode output?

  3. Hi, Nice snippet. Is ther a way to get product id dynamcally? I need to add this shortcode into a product template, so I can’t specify the prdocut ID.

    1. Hi Jessica, for sure!

      Try replace

      if ( empty( $atts ) ) return '';
      if ( ! isset( $atts['id'] ) ) return '';
      

      with

      if ( ! is_product() ) return '';
      $atts['id'] = get_queried_object_id();
      
  4. What about “Add a Review” button for that ID? Can you help me?

    1. Hello Dean, thanks so much for your comment! Yes, this is definitely possible, but I’m afraid it’s custom work. If you’d like to get a quote, feel free to contact me here. Thanks a lot for your understanding!

  5. Hey, I am using your script since a while and I like it, but today I saw, that there ist only the shortcode on that page an no reviews.
    PHP is 7.4.25 an WP still 5.8.3
    Whats happend?
    greetz Chris

    1. Hi Christian, if the shortcode is showing as text and not outputting content, it could be there is a typo in your shortcode name?

  6. Hello there,

    Is there a way to create shortcode to display only review form without the comments on the top?

    1. Hello Andre, thanks so much for your comment! Yes, this is definitely possible, but I’m afraid it’s custom work. If you’d like to get a quote, feel free to contact me here. Thanks a lot for your understanding!

  7. I don’t quite understand with your last statement
    “Please note “id” is the ID of the product for which you want to output customer reviews.”

    From what I’ve understood, I need to replace the “ID”. But I’m not sure where or what’s the my source. Or where to get the ID

    1. You can get it by hovering onto any product in the WP admin

  8. how can i get to show the comments attached photos

    1. Do you use a plugin for comment attachments?

  9. Can you do this for multiple products, so that you have shortcodes for all products?

    1. Hey Austin, thanks so much for your comment! Yes, this is definitely possible, but I’m afraid it’s custom work. If you’d like to get a quote, feel free to contact me here. Thanks a lot for your understanding!

  10. Is there an easy way to rewrite this to show responses to reviews (children of the original review with a depth of 2)?

    1. Hi Michael, thanks so much for your comment! Yes, this is definitely possible, but I’m afraid it’s custom work. If you’d like to get a quote, feel free to contact me here. Thanks a lot for your understanding!

  11. Hi, your posts are very usefull! Is it possible to change the customer reviews text near the star rating (below the product title in the single product page). For example, “100% satisfied” instead of “9 customers review”? Thank you so mych

    1. Hello Joanna, thanks so much for your comment! Yes, this is definitely possible, but I’m afraid it’s custom work. If you’d like to get a quote, feel free to contact me here. Thanks a lot for your understanding!

  12. Thanks for this – very useful! One question, how does it behave when there is a lot of comments? Will it paginate according to woocommerce settings?

    Thanks

    1. Hi David, thanks so much for your comment! Yes, this is definitely possible, but I’m afraid it’s custom work. If you’d like to get a quote, feel free to contact me here. Thanks a lot for your understanding!

  13. Hi! is there any way to show the reviews with a limit up to 5 reviews per page? because I tried, it shows all the reviews and the page length is increased which I don’t want. Thanks in advance.

  14. If I can afford to post this code that allows you to view all reviews without entering the id:

    1. Sorry, edit with this ( my bad ):

  18. This is great, thanks for sharing. Is there a way to also add Leave your rating above or below the reviews similar to that in the woocommerce tab as well so someone can leave a review also?

  19. Another super helpful snippet to learn from!

    Q: What is the best way to manually populate comments into the system? We have many to use from another application that we’d like to populate throughout the site (they are not specifically product related).

    Thanks –
