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.

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.

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.

Great software with great service

Finding a quality Rate & Review component for Joomla was no easy task. JReview is so flexible, it easily met all my needs where others fell short. It's a slick, easy to use and robust R&R component that installed without issue and has run very smoothly.

If that is not enough, the customer service is fantastic. Fast, friendly and thorough responses. Alejandro answered all my questions and more, providing me with valuable feedback and excellent assistance in addressing my needs.

If you are looking for a Rate & Review, look no further, you've come to the right place

Above and Beyond

I initially bought Jreviews a little hesitantly, worried because I had very specific needs and I knew that I would have to customize it to make it work for me. I, as a beginner website developer desperately wanted this to work for me, and with the help from the support team it has for-filled my my every hope. The product is AMAZING "right outta the box" and I will probably look for ways to use it on other sites. The support that I received for my specific requests though was truly patient and beyond what I deserved really :P I asked alot!! I could not thank them enough.. I know I must have been annoying them in the end, but they always were fantastic! They have helped make a dream of mine come true, creating my website, and hopefully it will be a success. It could not have been done with out them. Jreveiws is so fantastic and the support is even better! Nobody could ask for more!
