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 12 years, with a strong emphasis on user experience, SEO, security, and performance.
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.

JReviews is one heck of a deal!
The DigitalChumps team is nothing if not demanding-we've got big dreams and we're very particular about how we want our stuff organized (much to the dismay of our poor, overworked web designer). :) That's why we were worried about what types of solutions were available for our reviewing and content publishing needs. We needed something versatile and rock-solid to make sure everything runs without a hitch and looks professional while doing it... and that's precisely what we got in jReviews. It's one heck of a great package that, thus far, has met every requirement we've defined. And that's not even mentioning the fantastic resource that is Alejandro for when we need support. Take it from us, jReviews is one heck of a deal!-- Steve Schardein, Editor-In-Chief, DigitalChumps
Incredible Flexibility, Incredible Support
When it came time to develop the My Senior Choices website, an online senior facility and senior providers directory, we knew before we even began that we would use the JReviews component. We have worked on some other projects using the extension and would not even consider building an online directory without it. Its flexibility is unmatched and only limited to your imagination, the pieces all fit and work together so there is no need to purchase a bunch of different extensions which really helps with keeping the site updated and secure. But, by far, the best thing about the extension is the support we get from Alejandro, the developer. If we come up with an idea that he fills will benefit the whole community he will include our requests into future versions, which is so unusual for a Joomla extension developer. We just love every aspect about the extension but we particularly love that we can get into the bowels of it and rewrite it so it suits our specific needs but the extension is written so intelligently that he has devised a method to save those changes so they never get overwritten. It is just so nice to know that if we have a need, it will absolutely be handled by the JReviews extension and the JReviews support.-- Cindy Moore, Founder - Managing Partner, My Senior Choices LLC
If you are considering it, buy it, you won't be sorry!
