The JReviews extension for Joomla includes everything you need to get started and easily create sites for business directories, classifieds, catalogs, events, reviews, multimedia, and much more!
JReviews is the best Joomla directory component and the best Joomla reviews component, combined into in one powerful and user-friendly solution. It has been in constant development for over 13 years, with a strong emphasis on user experience, SEO, security, and performance.
The core package comes with everything you need to build high-end website, and we offer free and paid Add-ons, and a solid developer documentation so you can extend the functionality to meet your particular requirements.
Start off with standard forms containing the basic fields for listings and reviews and extend them with custom fields. There are many types of fields to choose from including non-standard inputs like Related Listings to connect listings with one another. It is also possible to control user access settings and to customize the rendered output of each field.
Through the use of Listing Types, you can design multiple listing and review forms so they are tailored to each of your categories. For example if you have Venues and Events listing types each one can have different forms that collect different information.
Let your vistors make the most of your site with these great features. They'll be able to create their favorite list, claim listing ownership so they can manage their own listing, submit an enquiry to a listing owner and easily compare multiple listings on the site.
It's very easy to submit listings on the front-end of the site so you can allow site members or even guests so contribute new content. With fine-grained access controls you choose which listings are automatically published and which go into moderation.
Build your site just the way you want with the ability to define different sets of rating criteria for each of your listing types. You can establish the rating scale that will be used on the site and also assign different weights to each rating criteria.
Top rated lists take into account both the average rating and the number of reviews a listing has received for more accurate results. Listings can also be ordered by rating for each individual rating criteria. So for example, your site visitors would be able to find top rated restaurants based on the quality of food alone, instead of only by average of food, atmosphere, service and pricing. Your site visitors will be able to vote on reviews and use the review search functionality to find reviews that match their keywords.
Editor reviews allows you to give your business or trusted users the ability to post reviews that are shown, and averaged, separately from the user reviews.
Listings and Reviews can have any type of media associated with them. Each media type is automatically recognized and videos and audio files are automatically converted to HTML5 compatible formats so they play in all browsers. You can import media files directly from other sites and automatically embed videos from the most popular video sharing sites.
Choose from multiple layouts and display options for videos and photos and you can even have different settings for each of your listing types. For example you can display a photo gallery in the detail page for Hotels and use a film-strip layout for Movie listings.
Create custom Advanced Search and Filtering Modules to let your site visitors quickly find what they are looking for, including the ability to search listings by rating. You can design multiple forms with different inputs or let users use the default Advanced Search page where they can search listings by listing type, category and the defined search fields.
The Live Search feature improves the user experience by loading results in real time as the user types in keywords or makes selection from the Advanced Search Module.
When combined with the MapsPro Add-on the Advanced Search and Filtering Modules are also capable of performing location searches using postal codes, partial or complete addresses.
All user actions appear in the EasySocial and JomSocial activity streams to enrich your community. New listings, media, reviews and review discussions can be posted to the stream in addition to favorites and votes on reviews and media.
The EasySocial and JomSocial user avatar and name is also shown on user contributed content linked to their profile. Three Community plugins are available to display a user's listings, reviews and favorites in the user's profile page.
We implement Schema.org, Facebook Open Graph and Twitter Cards.
Review and Breadcrumbs structured data markup is output by default to increase the probability that you'll get nicer results in SERPs.
It is also possible to configure each of the site Listing Types with different Schema.org and Facebook Open Graph object types.
We know it's important to display different information throughout the site and once installed you'll find the following Modules available, each one with many configuration settings:
We've also implemented a ShortCodes system that allows you to place the output of listings, reviews and custom fields anywhere on the site.

Long time user and very happy with JReviewsWe have been using jReviews for about 2 years and we are the happiest customers you can imagine: this highly customizable software can be adapted to any use from yellow-pages-style directory to an exclusive review site. The templates can be modified even by beginners and if you have any problem with that: the support by the team of jReviews is just excellent. Answers often in under 12 hours, direct support by Alejandro. In two words: 100% recommended!Arne Peine Aachen Reviews
The only thing better than their products is their supportI spent months researching different platforms for building a quality review site and hands down ReviewsForJoomla is the best product out there. Since I had no experience with Joomla! I was a bit hesitant, but after reading their forums and seeing the level of support they offered I decided to try out the demo. Three days later and several forum posts I knew that this was the complete package and purchased the full version. Their dedicated support team is the best I've ever run into.Scott Holmes
Pleasantly surprised. I recommend JReviews for directory and review sitesAs 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.
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.Chris Walker
Solid product, great supportWe have used JReviews for many years and it's been one of the best features loved by our website visitors. The product gets better and better and the support is top notch. If you're looking to extend Joomla or WordPress and create a directory and reviews features, you can't do better than JReviews. Just get it.Ron Severdia PlayShakespeare.com
