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.

A Great Extension!!!

JReviews abilities are truly endless and I consider this component a fundamental and irreplaceable extension highly customizable and adaptable. Alejandro, creator of this component, offers an impeccable support, always fast and efficient to the problems and requests of all users.
A Great Extension!

-- Filippo Fraternali

Amazing Product, Amazing Support

It's obvious from the get go, that jReviews is one of the most popular, well written Joomla components out there...

But where it really stands out, is the level of dedication from Alejandro in supporting his product. In one day, I got 6 responses from him while we worked through a problem, that he easily could have refused as being outside of normal support for his product. My first response was at 8:30 A.M. until the final, problem solving response at 10:30 P.M. All that, in one day!

I've used other products from other developers, who have whole support departments. None of them has ever demonstrated the patience, speed, and accuracy of this developer. Absolutely fantastic product.

JReviews is more than a plugin, its a solution.

This is what I call a perfect plugin.

I am a professional web developer and use tons of plugins on a daily basis. I have been using JReviews for almost 10 years for multiple smaller sites, mostly for some private projects. Now I am again working on a bigger project and need a review script. Many times before, and again over time, I was searching testing review scripts.... I always end up with JReviews.

I only had to contact the support couple of times over the years, and the ultra fast and perfect response time didn't change over time. This is what support should look like!

JReviews is so well-thought-out for its use cases with endless configuration possibilities that allows you to do just anything. Nothing else compares to this, and there is not much missing. If its still not enough, and you need deeper tweaks in the code or templates then this is also designed perfectly. The system is built robust and in a manner that lets you change things without having to be afraid to break other things if you follow the rules. Again: Fantastic.

New features are added constantly and the development process is always up to date, no lagging behind.

Not really too relevant, but there could be more templates available. I understand the "Why" but as a Dev I don't like IONCube encoded scripts...

Again, after years I still think this is one of the most complex, robust and functionally perfect solutions for review sites.

My number 1 Pick, far ahead of competition.
