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 WordPress extends the core WordPress posts system; it's extremely flexible and comes with unparalleled features and functionality.
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 and Filtering Widgets 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 Widget.
When combined with the MapsPro Add-ons the Advanced Search and Filtering Modules are also capable of performing proximity searches using postal codes, partial or complete addresses.
All user actions appear in the BuddyPress activity stream 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 BuddyPress user avatar and name is also shown on user contributed content linked to the BuddyPress profile. Three BuddyPress plugins are available to display a user's listings, reviews and favorites in his 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 Widgets 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.

Jreviews is the Single Most Significantly Transformative Plugin for Wordpress
From the first moment several years ago that I identified the need to have comprehensive reviews functionality integrated into some of our websites, and my technical assistant researched and recommended JReviews for this purpose, I have never had any reason to regret my choice or to contemplate any alternatives. The basis of this verdict is that:-- John Rees-Evans
a) the original functionality provided by JReviews was so conspicuously superior to anything else on the market
b) some features that I suggested would further enhance the product have been carefully considered by Alejandro and added to the original product, essentially making what was an already exceptional product virtually perfect
c) whenever I have configuration or integration issues, Alejandro or one of his team responds swiftly and communicates the solution clearly in terms that a non-technically trained person such as I am, is usually reasonably well capable of understanding
d) whereas I used to find Joomla very awkward and non-user intuitive to use in comparison with Wordpress, and yet nonetheless persevered with JReviews in spite of the fact that I was required to run Joomla sites purely to satisfy the one criterion of having a site that was compatible with the world's best reviews software, the fact that Alejandro has since developed a Wordpress plugin now makes our work vastly less onerous
I continue to be extremely grateful that the product exists and hope it will continue to be maintained and developed indefinitely.
Needed help with our website ... site was down and we were somewhat panicked. Emailed jReviews support and had a response within minutes. Alejandro was able to troubleshoot the issue and get us back up very quickly. Product adds tremendous value to our website and we are grateful for the continued support and product development!-- Mark McKeen, Owner, BarkleyAndPaws, LLC
The best product for Joomla!
I've been using the JReviews component as the foundation for my website for 4 years. They offer the best customer support I have experienced compared to other component providers. They always help in case there's a problem and are very quick to respond.-- Sergey P., Fish Team Russia
I can sincerely recommend all JReviews products!
A must buy for any website
What 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
