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.

Real asset in your online business

Jreviews turned out to be a real asset, a very valuable part of our present and future endeavors. The software is flexible and complex enough to allow you to build almost any kind of data driven web portal. It is easy to jump in and start using Jreviews to build blocks of your future website. If you just want to make things simple, use standard template, be as quick as possible with your website deployment, then Jreviews will do an excellent job. However, if you're eager to make a step ahead and use Jreview's customization capabilities then you'll be surprised how many new ideas will arise. For me the best of all is that you don't have to be programmer to use it, actually you're going to need one to build a website features that Jreviews has already built in. Last, but not least, persons behing Jreviews give incomparable support, making you feel confident about the future of your online presence.

Feature packed component with BEST support going... Amazing Product!

The features of JReviews seem endless and they just keep coming. Out of the box JReviews clearly satisfies intended users needs and does everything it is intended to do and more. Once kicking the tires its easy to realize the power of this great component, the only thing needed is your touch of imagination.

The installation, configuration and setup of JReviews is well documented plus the forums provide a vast wealth of information. As with any software there is a learning curve which I found this curve to be short lived. The best way to get started is jump in with both feet, read, read and read more. Follow the documentation and try it for yourself. You will not be disappointed. JReviews is gracious enough to provide a trial period, many providers don't. Big Plus!

JReviews is easily customizable even for a beginner like myself. I have found the documentation and forums provide better then 95% of answers to questions. The excellent support handles the rest. Just follow the setup guide, watch the videos and dig into the Tips and Tricks section and you won't look back. The addons to expand versatility are worth every penny plus they are developed in house. Another Big Plus!

When it comes to support Alejandro and Kristian are two of the best in the industry. They are Prompt!, Professional! and Eager! to understand your questions and provide spot on answers every time. They are to the point, handling every situation with Integrity. I know JReviews is a great component, It sells itself without question. For me the unparalleled support is the icing on the cake for such a feature packed component. Great Job Guys!!!
