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.

Honest review about Jreviews

I just want to take some time to give a sincere review of Jreviews and Jreviews support. This Joomla exstention exceeds all my expectation by the virtue of its versatility. We use this component in non for profit sector to review and government and non governmental organizations, and Jreviews has been very useful for our service. The Tech support is remarkable. I highly recommend Jreviews. If you are considering to buy it, don't hesitate. It is a good investment and the service is invaluable. Good luck guys and thank you very much for a brilliant work and a generous heart. Keep up the good work!

Always ready and willing to help, EVEN when I don't know what help I need!

Alejandro and his team have supported my team since we began working with Joomla and JReviews at least 8 years ago, but in the last couple of years, when we've really needed support for different ventures we were taking, that's when we have relied most heavily on the fantastic support of the team. If you look at the site, you won't see the correct implementation or actual REVIEWS part of the software, but that isn't the fault of anyone but me and my team...once I purchased the website, I went "rogue" and ended up not using the product as intended. However, the fact that we haven't implemented the software as intended has not stopped Alejandro from supporting us as we have traversed our own On-The-Job implementing to the best of our ability. We have received help, direction, suggestions and even encouragement as we moved forward, and again, now as we embark on another "adventure" upgrading the site. Many thanks to the fine software and the support, even for those who haven't taken full advantage and/or potential of JReviews and the iReview template. We can't thank you enough!!

JReviews Rocks!

I have without a doubt had a better experience with JReviews than any other Joomla component.

This is an exceptionally robust & dynamic component. The online systems & value it creates on your website is really unmatched.

The support is unmatched, the component's developers know it inside & out. All support tickets & forum posts are answered within 24 hours & sometimes a lot sooner. Its also really well documented. Its ratings & review ability is unmatched, the Google maps API integration is awesome also, along with the paid listings addon!

Its a little pricier as a component but completely worth it! I've purchased 2 licenses for two websites of mine www.driversvoice.com & www.ebudmarketplace.com. Anyone looking to confirm my recommendation feel free to contact me through my website below

Thanks again!

Outstanding

During the last four months I had the pleasure to build two large portal-type websites that use jReviews as their main component. The level of professionalism and care to details that I found in the jReviews package amazed me right from the start -- this is indeed a very well constructed and also very well documented set of extensions. The templates are well-structured and use a proper naming scheme for custom variable placement, which I found essential for the inevitable customization process. Custom coding examples in the documentation provide great insight and are really helpful to make the most out of any project. Backend administration is very sophisticated and a joy to work with. The greatest asset though of the company behind jReviews is the incredible level of support they provide -- never in 4 years of Joomla development have I experienced such instant and helpful responses on both support forums and support ticket management. I highly recommend jReviews to anybody building any type of reviews / commentary / recommendation portal.
