Sort Reviews/Ratings by date on Woocommerce

WooCommerce questions are off-topic, but since reviews are merely comments, I think we can make the case that ordering comments is still on-topic.

wp_list_comments() has a reverse_top_level parameter that will set the most recent comment first and then go backwards. Assuming it works like I think it should then you’d want to add this parameter to WooCommerce’s wp_list_comments().

Conveniently, a filter is available for the wp_list_comments() args that are used in the single-product-reviews.php template.

<ol class="commentlist">
    <?php wp_list_comments( apply_filters( 'woocommerce_product_review_list_args', array( 'callback' => 'woocommerce_comments' ) ) ); ?>

So, then to filter in new args, the process of filtering is the same as usual:

function wpa_filter_list_comments($args){
  $args['reverse_top_level'] = true;
  return $args;
add_filter( 'woocommerce_product_review_list_args', 'wpa_filter_list_comments' );
