Creating a new theme
How to create a design theme
Warning: DO NOT DUPLICATE AN EXISTING THEME. Yes, this would make it slightly easier to create your new theme, but it will also make your new theme horribly incompatible with Magento updates. Many designers (including some major Magento design companies) did this for a long time, and left the Magento world in a bit of a mess when 1.4 was released. Instead, use the “least impact” approach, outlined in this article to maximize compatibility with updates.
This ongoing article is meant to be a reference for basic data-fetching tasks in the Mage environment as well as a learn-by-example tutorial. Please add to it as you can…

Most shopping cart platforms offer a built-in reviews feature. However, there are 2 challenges with reviews for small and mid-size ecommerce sites:
Getting your shoppers to leave reviews to achieve a critical mass of reviews Getting consumers to trust the reviews on you site Generate more reviews

If a server side error occurs, Magento by default redirects to a special page that displays the error message itself and a trace. While this is useful information such a display can be quite annoying:
During development you most likely do not want to be redirected, but see the error directly on the page where it occurred. This way you can simply reload the page after fixing the error.
