We have been developing for Joomla and WordPress for several years now and decided to put together a list of resources for services and products that we believe you may find useful.

Products & services that integrate or work well with JReviews

  • GTranslate is a multilingual website solution which can translate your website automatically. We like the service because does not require that you add any code on your site and does not interfere with the performance of your site queries. The ClickFWD GTranslate.JSON Joomla plugin extends the translation coverage for extensions like JReviews that serve content via ajax requests with JSON responses.

  • EasySocial

    Social networking community extension for Joomla. JReviews integrates with EasySocial at many levels including the activity stream, points and badges. JReviews also comes with several Apps to display information in a user's profile (listings, reviews, favorites). It will also display the user's avatars on his reviews, listings and comments and link back to the profile.

  • JomSocial

  • SourceCoast

    SourceCoast is the developer of JFBConnect, the complete social network integration suite for Joomla. It allows you to integrate your site registration and login to Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn, Yahoo, WindowsLive and many other social networks. Many JReviews clients use JFBConnect on their websites and it's a great complement for our UserProfiles Add-on.

Web hosting

  • DigitalOcean

    We host our sites on DigitalOcean and they are as good as it gets for cloud hosting. Fast servers using SSD drives and competitive pricing.

  • ServerPilot

    ServerPilot is a secure control panel optimized for hosting WordPress and PHP websites on cloud servers. We use ServerPilot to build our servers on DigitalOcean where we host our Joomla and WordPress sites. Something to consider is that while ServerPilot will allow your scripts to send mail, it doesn't offer a mail server to manage your emails. For that you will need to use a 3rd party mail hosting system. We use Zoho.

  • Zoho

    Zoho provides everything you need to boost sales, step up productivity and manage all day-to-day activities. We use them to hosting our email. They have a free plan for one domain and up to 10 users.

  • Sendy

    Sendy is a self hosted email newsletter application that lets you send trackable emails via Amazon Simple Email Service (SES). This makes it possible for you to send authenticated bulk emails at an insanely low price without sacrificing deliverability. We use it and the value you get is unbelievable! Checkout the free FWDSendy Joomla Plugin which makes it easy to add subscription forms for your mailing lists anywhere on your site.
