JReviews has everything you need so you can get started today!
The JReviews extension combines the functionality of a Joomla directory component and a Joomla reviews component into a single, powerful and user-friendly component. JReviews is in constant development with a strong emphasis on user experience, SEO and performance. Use JReviews to build City Guides, Classifieds, Business Directories, Product Catalogs, Book Reviews, Events, Movie & Gaming Review Databases, Job Boards, Beverage Reviews and so much more. JReviews for Joomla leverages the core Joomla category and content system; it is very flexible and has an extensive feature-set.
Included with every license, the RapidLauncher Add-on provides one-click installation of sample data.
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 Modules to let users 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 GeoMaps Add-on the Advanced Search Module is also capable of performing proximity 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.
The core functionality of JReviews already lets you put together an incredible site. If you want to extend it with even more features we've got a few add-ons to choose from.

Wish every developer could be like this!
Honestly - this is the first component I was thrilled to buy. Not only because it works above and beyond what you'd expect it to do, but because the customer support - to me - is unrivaled.-- Ralph Sutton
I am a REAL beginner - and I had A LOT of questions - I posted in the forums, I emailed the developer, and every single one of my questions got answered much faster than I could have anticipated.
The component itself is top notch but add in the fantastic customer support - and you have something special. Plus they are always working on improvements and listening to users - to incorporate features we want.
I can't say enough good things about jReviews. Well worth every dime!
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.-- Bernd Krystofiak, Founder, moveGreen Business Community for renewable energy, mobility and environment
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!
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.
Amazing product, even better support
At first we were a little skeptical about Jreviews because it looked "too good to be true". We downloaded the trial and literally 30 minutes later, we bought the product because it was simply amazing. The support here at reviewsforjoomla is second to none. Everytime we have issues Alejandro answers within 5 minutes or even less. This product is the best out there and is always getting better. I don't know where yourwiseguy.com would be if it wasn't powered by Jreviews.-- Joey Campos, CEO, Yourwiseguy.com
World Class Software, Support, Development and Value for Money
Everything about JReviews is World Class.-- Richard B, Owner, BowlsChat
It is a very advanced, multi featured and easy to use product that works very smoothly 'out of the box' as a standalone item or integrated with other software.
JReviews is so versatile the possibilities are endless, you can build anything you want (the addons are the same high quality as the core product) with minimal effort, safe in the knowledge that the support provided by Alejandro and the team is superb - fast, helpful, reliable, innovative, responsive to feedback and focused on providing a solution that is best for the customer.
The Online documentation and tooltips within the product provide a high level of detailed information for the core elements of the software as well as multiple variations for different scenarios and numerous helpful guides.
It is also excellent value for money at less than 50 cents per day (< 25 cents per day from year 2 onwards) and the best available in this market sector by a wide margin.
We only work with suppliers that we consider to be totally reliable with high quality products, a similar level of support and tremendous value for money; JReviews easily meets all those conditions.
JReviews is an essential part of any website that requires a Directory environment, it is an amazing package and we give it the highest possible recommendation.
