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 build 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 an incredible 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.

Client Testimonials

Pleasantly surprised. I recommend JReviews for directory and review sites

As the third developer on a project that has stalled for over a year, I came into it not knowing anything about JReviews. To be honest, I still do not know how to fully utilize all of the features. I had a deadline and a site that was a disaster full of hacked templates and mysterious settings. I needed to get this site up and running before March 17 because the owner is planning an email blast to 20,000 users.

The site was slow on a shared hosting plan at godaddy, so I moved it to a dedicated server and now it flies. It loads in 1.7 seconds. I then had to attack the templates. The developers that preceded me made quite a mess. After fiddling around with it for about a week, I finally gave up and started with fresh templates.

I had some javascript conflicts and Alejandro and Kristian were all over it. They guided me through and even logged into the backend to assist me. All in all. I enlisted their assistance in about 4 issues that were crippling the site.

Considering the fact that the license was purchased over a year ago and previous developers had hacked up the site, I really did not expect much in the way of support from the developers. I was pleasantly surprised and am still am very pleased at their response and assistance rendered.

If I am ever asked to create a directory / review site again, I will insist the client use this component. Not only does it have more features than anything out there (multiple criteria ratings comes to mind), the developers are top notch and willing to help.

Wish every developer could be like this!

Honestly - this is the first component I was thrilled to buy. Not only because it works above and beyond what you'd expect it to do, but because the customer support - to me - is unrivaled.

I am a REAL beginner - and I had A LOT of questions - I posted in the forums, I emailed the developer, and every single one of my questions got answered much faster than I could have anticipated.

The component itself is top notch but add in the fantastic customer support - and you have something special. Plus they are always working on improvements and listening to users - to incorporate features we want.

I can't say enough good things about jReviews. Well worth every dime!
