JReviews has everything you need so you can get started today!
The JReviews plugin combines the functionality of a WordPress directory plugin and a WordPress reviews plugin into a single, powerful and user-friendly plugin. JReviews is 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 WordPress leverages the core WordPress categories and posts; 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 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 GeoMaps Add-on the Advanced Search Widget is 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.

How Do You Do It?!?!
I don't know how you find the time to develop such a slick component AND offer such exceptional support - I'm seriously by you guys!-- Mark Clulow, Web Master, spotlight™
Don't get me wrong - this is a complex component - configuration took me a fair while to work out how it all fits together - but there is excellent documentation throughout, the on-line documentation is very thorough and keeping the component up to date is a real breeze - click, click, smile! :D
I've turned to the support team on two separate occasions now and both times I got the most amazing response:
1. Here's the problem
2. Here's how we already fixed it for you
Have a nice day.
Can you imagine how nice it feels to get a message like that?! Hahaha!
ReviewsForJoomla makes our web site REALLY useful AND looks nice. Your component has definitely paid for itself already - thank you all SOOOO much for your outstanding work.
The best directory plugin on the market
I have been using JReviews for my art gallery website since 2011. I have only good things to say about JReviews. The most significant advantage is its unparalleled flexibility to create a custom reviews and listing submission directory of any kind. It is very powerful, very easy to customize and very user-friendly. I have hundreds of users who write compliments on the website because of the ease and freedom they have to add, edit and control their own listings. I recommend JReviews to anybody starting a submission-based website, with incredible search features, custom fields, and now with the new advanced filtering, JReviews just keeps getting better and better and never ceases to amaze me. if you know basic HTML you can make your JReviews listings design 100% unique and with great documentation from JReviews you can create all the features of other top level websites that cost thousands. JReviews is the best investment I have made for my business and I highly recommend JReviews to anyone who is serious about creating a professional website for reviews, directories and listing submission of any kind.-- Miguel Bevia, Artenet, Artenet
During the last four months I had the pleasure to build two large portal-type websites that use jReviews as their main component. The level of professionalism and care to details that I found in the jReviews package amazed me right from the start -- this is indeed a very well constructed and also very well documented set of extensions. The templates are well-structured and use a proper naming scheme for custom variable placement, which I found essential for the inevitable customization process. Custom coding examples in the documentation provide great insight and are really helpful to make the most out of any project. Backend administration is very sophisticated and a joy to work with. The greatest asset though of the company behind jReviews is the incredible level of support they provide -- never in 4 years of Joomla development have I experienced such instant and helpful responses on both support forums and support ticket management. I highly recommend jReviews to anybody building any type of reviews / commentary / recommendation portal.-- Sebastian Schalipp, Web Developer
