JReviews Directory & Reviews for Joomla and WordPress


JReviews is the Swiss Army Knife equivalent of a Joomla extension and WordPress plugin. It's a multi-purpose solution that allows you to create almost any type of site and to use JReviews within the same site for different purposes. Whether you need to build a City Guide, Business Directory, Classifieds Ads, Jobs Board, or a Product Reviews Catalog, all of this and much more is possible with JReviews. With over 12 years of continuous development, JReviews boasts thousands of features and a strong add-on offering that allow you to build a functional and very powerful platform for your site visitors.

Since 2006, over 7,000 clients have used our products to fulfill their dreams of starting up their own business. JReviews was created by Alejandro Schmeichler and it's the longest running reviews project for Joomla. The idea for the project started as a hobby in 2005 out of the need for a multi-criteria rating solution for a reviews site. This product was called Xtdratings and Alejandro made it available for free and created a website to support it. It became so successful at the time, that it led to the development of JReviews, first for Mambo CMS, and later for Joomla. In 2010, JReviews was folded into ClickFWD, a business dedicated to providing web-based software solutions. And in 2014, the first version of JReviews for WordPress was released.

Alejandro Schmeichler is the lead developer and project manager for JReviews. He has an Electronics Engineering degree from Universidad Simón Bolivar in Venezuela and an MBA from the MIT Sloan School of Management. Alejandro has been working in the development of software solutions for over 12 years.

Great Product, Even better customer support!!!!!

I have been using Jreviews for about 2 months now and I have to say that it is one of the most well thought out extensions that I have seen to date. Not only is it robust, but they have made it incredibly customizable. I have very little knowledge about php and coding, but this system has been a breeze to learn and adapt to.

The reason you should buy this feature is because of the Support Forum. The moderators (in particular, Alejandro) are amazing. They not only help you with the little stuff, but often go way above and beyond the call of duty and help you customize your code. Simply incredible!

I've used JReviews for 7 years and it gets better each year

This is one of the only times I have been compelled to write a review like this, but JReviews is simply fantastic. Back in 2011, I looked high and low for suitable reviews software. I came across JReviews and wow!, what I found was so much more than just reviews.

With JReviews you can build powerful directory, reviews and so much more. I have built sites with all of these features. The support is exceptional and it probably the best I have experienced. I'm very technical with IT, but I am no developer, yet I have built powerful websites using JReviews. It is fast, infinitely powerful and I am yet to come across a serious bug or any kind in all these years.

Take my word for it - don't even bother with the trial - you have already found the perfect platform!
