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: Advanced Search, Directories, Listings, Reviews, Fields, Range, Media, User Favorites and Totals.

Easy to Use and Great Results
For our site, it was crucial that the ratings software be flexible and robust. The rating system is the key to the business. ReviewsForJoomla was just what we needed. It was very easy to implement. The vidoes turotials got me most of the way there, and the quick support response allowed me to build just the site we wanted without delaying the client's business. Thanks for a great Joomla! component.-- Ric Fox, Web Developer, Real Estate Agent Rating and Reviews
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
I was searching for comparing extension for Joomla. I received recommendation for JReviews from its competitor. JReviews promissed many features that I wanted. But I was unsure how they work and whether I will be able to use them. I asked many questions before I decided to buy JReviews. What convinced me were very professional replies to my sometimes dilletante questions before I even decided to buy.-- Max Jung
I never regreted to have purchased JReviews. Now I am using it for about 4 months and I can say it is excellent extension. At the beginning I thought it will be complicated. Although is has very many features its administration is quite easy and I learned to use it very fast. There is excellent documentation for JReviews and its template. Obviously I had many question that I posted in the forum. Each of them was answered within one day. Many times within minutes. Although my programming knowledge is basic with the help of Kristian and Alejandro I am able to use overrides for individualising of my site.
I must say that I have never experienced such professional and friendly support. For all my questions, even for stupid ones I received well meant reply and advices that went many times further over my query.
I want to express to Kristian and above all to Alejandro my greatest thanks.
GeoMaps Is Everything I've been looking for.......
I am already a fan of Jreviews, but I am now a huge fan of GeoMaps. There aren't many components that I can get for $49 that I can plug in, fill a few things out and BAM! it's up and ready to go.-- Christopher Hall, Owner, ReddingWebDesign.net
