I'm looking for a way to get a direct link to a specific review (using review_id), such as :

Code: Select all

<a href="index.php?route=product/product&product_id=1&review_id=1">Review #1</a>
If it's not possible, a link to the tab review could possibly be sufficient, such as:

Code: Select all

<a href="index.php?route=product/product&product_id=1#tab-review">Reviews</a>
I have found some references for the former version of OpenCart (1.5.x), such as Link to select a tab or Linking to different product tab using text link, but nothing for the current version (2.x). Does anybody have an idea to get links like this?

Ello, mate.
You can do this both ways...

The first one is the hardest one, you should create a product/review.php controller and a product/review.tpl view and maybe a model, where you call the review and show it to the viewer with a link like ... ew_id=9001. It isn't so hard at all.

The second one you can do what i call 'gambiarra'. Just call a script triggering the click on your review tab button on window load when a parametrer is passed. For example: (example link= /index.php?route=product/product&product_id=9001&show_review=0)

Code: Select all

//somewhere in Product-controller
$this->data['show_review'] = $this->request->get['show_review'];

Code: Select all

//somewhere in Product-view
<?php if($show_review) { ?>
<script type="text-javascript">
<?php } ?>
