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.

Customer Testimonials

Great reviews component for a gaming website

We use JReviews for many years in GameWorld.gr. It's a great component to incorporate reviews in a gaming website.

Highly recommended for everyone. It is also highly customizable.

-- Manos Gryparis, Editor-in-chief, GameWorld.gr

Fantastic Product and Truly Great Support

I have been using JReviews for over 10 years and although the learning curve for me was fairly steep, the product has endless applications and possibilities. The support is second to none and the updates come frequently, making JReviews better and always in tune with its time. Well done to the team behind it. I would highly recommend JReviews to anyone.

-- Fabien Bello, Founder, Bello Group Ltd

Very, very impressed

This component is just fantastic. Not only does it all the things it should do in a very intuitive way, Alejandro and his team have also thought of everything around it. There's an advanced search feature, a module that lists featured reviews and so on.

The most impressive thing, however, is the support you're getting for this extension. Whenever you have a problem, something really bad must happen in order to not get support within a couple of hours. So major kudos are in order here.

-- Dominik B., EIC, The Coreburner

Extreme Value & Highly Competent Staff

Our site allows people to Find, Rate and Share local food within their communities. We really wanted a platform that was very similar to Yelp.

We originally started with eDirectory before finding jReviews. That was a big mistake. Words alone cannot capture the difference between these two companies. I'll just focus on the strengths of jReviews-

This is an extremely well documented system. My strengths are in design, I have only 'played around' with some php. This site was my first time using Joomla. It took a few days to get the hang of it, but after that it was very easy. The CSS provided with the iReview template was simple to manipulate and I was able to create the look and feel I wanted very quickly.

When I got stuck with code, I was able to find 90% of the answers on the forum. The other 10% required a support ticket and those were answered within hours.

You get a very committed team with JReviews. If you're considering building a review site, stop looking. This is the one you want. In my mind, it's a bargain.
