As soon as you start using JReviews, you'll quickly realize that it is both the best WordPress directory plugin and the best WordPress reviews plugin, combined into in one powerful and user-friendly solution. JReviews is in 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 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.

My winner of the overall best Joomla commercial product for 2008/2009
There are too much goods to say with JReview, I don't know where to start.-- Ajmal / Pembaris Crew
JReview is the most advanced and most flexible Joomla component there is, in Joomla sphere. Advanced in the sense that in the front end view, you could see 3 types of component view types, 3 "right-out-the-box" themes, interactive forms, interactive Joomla-plugins friendly detail page. While those are only from the front-end, on the back-end you will have an AJAX based (which means the page doesn't load when you on JReview admin page) plus automatic feeds on latest build and announcements from devs for any important news/updates.
While those are the great features offered by the component itself, the flexibility are by far, the best I have seen in Joomla's component. The number of 3rd party components integration are next to countless, since from my experience, JReview leads in the highest number of components integration especially with JReview EveryWhere. It supports almost every if not all community-based components like JomSocial, Community Builder and more.
There you go for a 5 stars Joomla's product. With their superb forum support that almost the same level as other components ticket support, you can't get any best form of support other than JReview's. With great customers community in the forum which helps each other (Tips & Tricks), with video tutorials on top of that, JReview worth every penny that you'll spend!
A must-have for any review-type site developers and highly recommended for those non-programmer webmasters that are willing to climb this acceptable component's learning curve!
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
Amazing Product, Amazing Support
It's obvious from the get go, that jReviews is one of the most popular, well written Joomla components out there...-- Marc Hudson, Creator, LandscapingScene.com
But where it really stands out, is the level of dedication from Alejandro in supporting his product. In one day, I got 6 responses from him while we worked through a problem, that he easily could have refused as being outside of normal support for his product. My first response was at 8:30 A.M. until the final, problem solving response at 10:30 P.M. All that, in one day!
I've used other products from other developers, who have whole support departments. None of them has ever demonstrated the patience, speed, and accuracy of this developer. Absolutely fantastic product.
