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.

Where do i start ...
I've been using the Jreviews component for my Joomla based website for 2-3 years now, suffice to say I've stuck around and wouldn't contemplate moving fro the Jreviews family. Here's why:-- Andrew James, Site Administrator, AirRifleReviews UK
Support, upgrades and functionality are the three main factors that keep me coming back for more, I had started using JReviews with my first Joomla based website after migrating from the Wordpress platform (of which JReviews now supports both Wordpress and Joomla), as a complete novice I would recommend new users to thoroughly read the JReviews configuration manual before getting their hands dirty, having said that the support provided by both Alejandro and Kristian really is second to none (the best I've ever experienced), "I don't know where they find the time to manage such a large operation whilst providing such a high level of support along side maintaining the JReviews service - truly outstanding..".
To cut short what would potentially be a very long testimonial, I will sum JReviews up like this:
It is of the absolute pinnacle where it comes to reviews integration for CMS based websites, you can expect a seriously high level of functionality considering all of the coding is done by someone else "it has everything you could possibly wish for, and if it doesn't, the JReviews team are always open minded to new suggestions on top of providing that all important A** customer satisfaction / support."
My last words..?
You can stop researching for other extensions now, pick JREVIEWS, YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT - SERIOUSLY!!!
Help when we needed help!
As OJT (on the job training) tech support, I was introduced to Joomla 1.5 and JReviews after having worked on a Drupal platform for our website. I found JReviews to be the easier part to grasp from the get go. It's going on 8 years of working on the site, two attempts have been made to upgrade to a higher level of Joomla, but the scope of the job and the fact that the chosen template wasn't available on Joomla 2.5 left us in the dust. Technology is moving on, the hosting platform warned of the need to upgrade to CENTOS7, an upgrade of PHP, etc., etc. and after a significant hack of our website, I was left scrambling and dependent on the experience of our hosting support and on JReviews support. Our JReviews support has been the best, my questions answered and, Alejandro even helped fix some issues still remaining after our hosting site backed up the PHP to 5.3. We are looking at a new website (keeping our website) for the time being on WordPress and have already purchased both JReviews for WordPress and the iReview theme as well. I am very grateful that the owner of our website, knowing how well JReviews worked for us on Joomla, agreed to move forward with JReviews on his new WordPress based project. Thanks to JReviews support for many jobs (support tickets) well done!!!-- Jackie Awtry, Tech Support

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.

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.
