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.


Directory listing features include favorites, claims, inquiries and comparison functionality

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.

Joomla directory and reviews setup for multiple ratings criteria

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.


Videos, photos, audio and attachments can be uploaded to listings and 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.

Testimonials from JReviews Clients

Fantastic product, development and support

Now though I have a found something that I hadn't expected to find, something that not only does what it claims to do but far far more.

I really don't think the title does this justice, I only looked at it because I wanted to use it in-conjunction with another certain comp only to find it does far more than the the comp I wanted to add it to.

Well my original comments still stand, this product just gets better and better. I have now added GeoMaps and its brilliant. Thanks for this it is really enabling me to make my website better and better and also inline with my competitors, ahead in some cases..

Fantastic, if you are sceptical of buying you have no fears with jReviews

-- Mark, Owner, Touring and Tenting

JReviews, Geomaps and CSV Importer - Fantastic

This is a critical set of components for us and the people at ReviewsForJoomla have delivered. Quality components with excellent service - well worth the cost!

We were able to import almost 100,000 entries in no time and have the site well underway.

Many thanks to the team!

To busy for your business? take just one component to replace Myblog, Jomcomment, mosetsTree and others

For me, in fact, it took some time to realize the SUPER-POWER of the possibilities using Jreviews.

After five years i was no longer happy with my Joomla based moveGreen project. I spent tons of time to hunt bugs within many different joomla components, browsing many forums trying to find solutions for "enexpected software behaviour" and realized that my users began to hate the permanent "at work" status, no real improvements and the complex and different frontend usage of the implemented services.

Then last December, after months of ignoring all the problems i was willing to sell my baby, just give it all away and make this horror show end. But i took some time when i found that i had bought jreview a year before - but never gave it a chance because i was so busy with everything else. Too busy for business - do you know this feeling?

I thought: hey i could replace the free, but buggy xyz component with this commercial one - pay for support and they have to act when i have a problem? sounds good!
Then, minutes later while i was browsing my installed components i began to realize that i could replace MOST OF THEM with this one - with JReviews!

WOW !

My support hell of different joomla components changed into a "just one component with best ever support" heaven!

And that's true! I replaced mosets tree, jomcomment, myBlog, Sobi and got additional features like members posting articles, reviews with stars, comments, classifieds and much more just with one JReviews installation and it works like a charm, including a fantastic user friendliy frontend which gives my website a very professional look and feel.

I love that my users love my website - I love the possibilities to integrate more functionalities with the same component and I'm absolutely satisfied with the outstanding 5 star support.

Sunny regards

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.
