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.

Online Gaming Reviews - Never to be the same!
When there's a Commercial Joomla option out there, I am normally very picky about making sure there is nothing better that is free. Be assured, if you are debating buying JReviews, just do it! You won't find better support or a better plugin. Every issue I've had, my fault or not, the staff solved it within a day, and that is a huge deal for production sites with lots of customers. My gaming reviews website now stands a chance against the larger ones, all thanks to its organization and easy modification (you can fit the templates to your needs effortlessly). The Forums are amazing for support, the userbase is fantastic. If you have a coding question - they're there! Big thanks to Alejandro for providing this revolutionary component for our sites!

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.
