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.

A must buy for any websiteWhat a fantastic peice of software. As a non programmer I couldnt afford to pay for someone to do what I wanted, so when I found jreviews, it was a no brainer. The software is very easy to use and set up. The support is the best I have ever come across. Dont even think if you should or shouldnt buy this, just buy it the cost is nothing compared to the power this gives your site. Thanks for all your help on the support team once again.Mark White MD, Cosmeticsos
Absolutely Essential Joomla ExtensionWe’ve been using JReviews for a few years now and are delighted by the flexibility and the ease-of-use supplied by this absolutely essential Joomla Extension. After shopping around for a bit and comparing other available options, it was quite clear that JReviews would be the winner when it comes to options, usability and functionality - hands-down. We love to use it and the support provided is also absolutely top-notch. Highly recommended!Melanie Samwer German Association for Hypnosis (DVH)
Amazing ComponentSince I bought JReviews I year ago it has not let me down. It is very flexible, easy to customise and very functional. The administrator side of the component provides a lot of options and works fairly easy due to ajax integration.
Support is also great, you usually have your response within the day and bugs are squashed fairly quickly.
I recommend this component to everyone who wants to add extra review functionality to their website and wants to improve the look of their content. You will not regret buying this component.Thomas Theunen Owner, MiniTech
JReviews is simply the best directory and review solutionIf you are looking for a review solution or a city guide, as was my case, you don't need to look any further. JReviews is a complete and comprehensive solution that is really customizable and with one of the best support teams I ever met (and I have worked with a lot of extension developers).
If you are a Wordpress user maybe this was a show stopper before, but now they provide the same solution both for Joomla and Wordpress. (I recommend Joomla, but not because of this extension because it is identical on both platforms).
The extension is so big and with so many options that I can't say it is super easy to setup. However, the documentation is clear and the support is helpful. Once you understand the concept and the structure the learning curve can be quickly overcome.Emilio Navas CEO, Hong Kong | Framed
