Support » Plugin: WP Customer Reviews » [Plugin: WP Customer Reviews] reviews show up twice (duplicated) after installing custom fields plug

  • Resolved Phil Emery


    We’re trying to use wp-customer-reviews and it’s just the ticket.

    However, we needed to add 2 custom fields to the output (using the Advanced Custom Fields plugin).

    The reviews now show up twice, above each custom field.
    It’s pretty basic, just a call to the custom fields after “the_content”

    <?php the_content(); ?>
    	<?php the_field('ingredients'); ?>
    	<?php the_field('size'); ?>
         <?php endwhile; else: ?>

    Not sure how to fix it, although I’ve looked through the plugins code and the only thing I could find related is at line 870:

    /* return normal content if this is not an enabled page, or if this is a post not on single post view */
    if (!$is_active_page) {
    $the_content .= ‘<div id=”wpcr_respond_1″>’;
    $the_content .= $this->aggregate_footer(); /* check if we need to show something in the footer then */
    $the_content .= ‘</div>’;
    return $original_content . $the_content;

    any ideas how to get it to show up just once?

    Am also experiencing the same problem.

    I am getting the same but without the custom fields. A brand new install is displaying in two places on one pay. I am only using the shortcode.

    Use this shortcode:



    We’re not using the short code but have it automatically added to the bottom of the posts. Any help would be greatly appreciated.


    Great Plugin! But I’m seeing duplicate buttons to the review form – what is also interesting, is that when I add this shortcode to the text widget so I can see the reviews in the sidebar, it duplicates the reviews on the bottom of the page, AND shows the review form button. Weird. Is there a fix for this? It’s a basic install.

    I was able to hide the duplicate by creating my own CSS specific to the page ID.

    I also modified the file: wp-customer-reviews.php / by replacing the <hr /> at the end of each review item with my own CSS <div class=”review-sep”></div> – so I could hide it.

    .page-id-14 #page-content .item hr, .page-id-14 #page-content .hreview, {
    	display: none;

    I am also having the same problem with review showing duplicate can anyone help me please? Her is a link to the review page.

    I too am getting duplicate reviews, not using custom fields.

    Update: I think I have a clue for the programers. For me the duplicates happen on the single page I set up to hold all the reviews. I have the code entered at the top as so:


    Which I believe is “standard” However… in the edit mode for that page I had also included a check mark to enter the code on the bottom of the page so that a review could be submitted.

    With that option also includes stored reviews to be displayed, before the submit.

    So the code on the top of the page created the first display of the view and choosing the option to include the submit a review on that same page created the duplicate review just above it.

    Perhaps an option to allow the submit a review but not display the reviews above it is in order? Or turn of the option to submit the review on “reviews page”. (not preferred)

    Now I will review the options to see if the fix can be done with the existing parameters.

    Having the same duplicate problem. Not a coder. I wonder if any support people have read this thread?

    My suggestion to all that are still seeing duplicate posts is to do the following.

    Designate one page where your reviews will appear, and where users will submit reviews.

    Insert the shortcode [WPCR_INSERT]
    Make sure NO options are checked or filled in, in the WP Customer Reviews tab in the page edit window. Just simply enter the shortcode and publish the page.

    Now, go to your Customer Reviews Plugin settings. (Settings —> Customer Reviews

    Make sure that under the “Review Page Settings” the option for “Show review form:” is checked. Also fill in your preferred button text.

    Let me know if this helps.


    Hi strick as you can see looking through the threads there does not seem to be any support for this plugin. I have had a question on for 3 weeks and have had no reply as have many others, as far as i can make out you are left to figure it out yourself or hopefully someone else other than support may help you. Im not knocking the plugin because it is still a good one but there are a lot of messing with code and if you are like me and dont know much about code then we are lost.
    I hope support will read this and take note.

    Have you tried my suggestion above? That’s how I resolved the duplicate comments issue.


    Your solution worked for me. I think the key is in creating a designed page as opposed to a post. When I set up a page as you suggested, it woked fine with no duplication. However, using the code in a post still showed duplication.
