An editorial staff and user driven review site for movies, blu-ray, digital media, video games and other technology.
We were looking for something that had a very intricate backend that allowed for a relational database. We got something that helped us build very detailed databases and that allowed us (through little effort) to make our site more searchable and accessible to the outside world while allowing users to add their own opinions. We could not have been happier with JReviews.
JReviews is, well, for reviews! Since we mainly do reviews it seemed like a natural fit. We had certain requirements - configurable field types, cross searching, weighted scoring tight integration with the CMS(Joomla). Again, we got more than we anticipated originally! In addition, having the ability to use the built in thickbox for images without an additional plug ins is a great plus and the templates are well commented and easy to adjust.
We use it for everything. We currently have over 700+ reviews and it compliments those needs. Our Frontpage uses JReviews modules in three module positions to highlight the newest reviews from the primary categories we review on - Games, DVDS and Anime. It also is used to generate our section pages and is used within the content using a JReviews template that has been modified to allow for tabbed reviews with related items using sliding drop downs. This and various other little bits help make our site look and feel professional. It created a very solid backbone that established an organized system that works and integrates related articles together using the fields configured within JReviews. In addition, our authors don't even need to really think about what's been set up in the backend. From the front end the submission process is seamless.
First and foremost, the support from Alejandro has been unrivaled. He dedicates himself to clarifying any issues and correcting them. Service goes a long way and it shows. Now, to the beef. It fits our mold for our review site perfectly. It allows us to do so many things that we didn't feel Joomla could provide. It allows us to do a lot of relationships between fields. JReviews submission interface works well within Joomla's interface and allows for our authors to work on what they need to do, submit reviews.
Filmering.at is an austrian movie-website. We offer news, videos, reviews and a community for movie-fans.
We already had a lot of editor reviews, so we needed a very flexible user-review system that could interact with the editor reviews, which are written in the standard Joomla content system. We also wanted a system that worked with JomSocial, so that the users would have a complete experience on our site and wouldn't see that all components are separate.
It is by far best review system for Joomla. We tried it and we saw that it is an amazing component that gives us a lot of opportunities. We wanted just a simple component for user-reviews, that also displays the reviews of the user in the JomSocial profile, but we found out that JReviews has a lot more things to offer. The great modules, the favorite system, the integration with the activity stream of JomSocial and the whole new design opportunities for our movie sites. And very soon we also found out that the support is simply awesome (no Joomla component has anything compared to the support of JReviews). For this reasons we decided to integrate JReviews even further in our website.
We use JReviews as the user-review system for movies and as an supplemental feature to our editor reviews. Also we use the great features of the JReviews modules. In short, everytime when we list movies in a module position we use the JReviews modules which are very flexible and beautiful. We also use JReviews to enhance the community features of our website. We modified the favorite system a little bit to a Fan system, and in the profiles of the users we show there user reviews and the movies they are a fan of. The JReviews template system allows us a very flexible output of the modules and profile plugins. Also we developed a "Fans also are Fans of" module which shows which movies are also favorited by users who are a fan of the movie. This allows us a better visual style of our movie sites. We also use the advanced search of JReviews and we use a lot JReviews functions for our movie-archive.
JReviews gives us a very flexible system for our movie site. The system is flexible enough to work for all kind of review sites and with the help of the great support, customization is possible in all possible ways. JReviews gives us opportunities to improve the quality of our website in a dimension that no other Joomla component is capable of. Everyone who wants to offer reviews in any kind of way should use JReviews.
PlayShakespeare.com is the Ultimate Free Shakespeare Resource providing high-quality plays, reviews, a discussion forum, a download library, and the latest Bard news.
At first, the site had a very limited roadmap, but users requested features right away. Having reviews was always part of the original plan, but we implemented other aspects like a document library, discussion forum, and a customized search first.
After a survey of the available options, we chose jReviews because it appeared there was strong support and a future. For us, the product cost was only a small part of the overall investment—most of it going into the time and effort of building and maintaining a reviews section, which could all be lost if a product suddenly died. So the stability of jReviews played a major role in our decision. jReviews was able to do most of what we needed out of the box. But we have very specific needs that pushed the limits of the product and the developer responded to a multitude of challenges, solving our every need.
We use JReviews to allow our team of Shakespeare reviewers worldwide to contribute reviews on theatrical performances, books, DVDs, feature stories, or just about anything Shakespeare related. Reviews are evaluated on a variety of criteria as well are cross-referenced to the theatre profiles and reviewer profiles in Community Builder. Custom fields allow us to automate and monetize our reviews with aspects like Amazon and other product links. The Listings Module helps more fully integrate JReviews content into relevant areas of our site. In the future, we hope to build a directory of Shakespeare products to take full advantage of the power of JReviews. By extending Joomla's core content functionality we're able to do things previously not possible.
We're happy to see that the developer was interested in seeing jReviews work in real world applications. While it may be a challenge for some to learn the ins-and-outs of the product initially, the benefits are clear in the long run. We're trying to find other ways to leverage the power of jReviews and push it to its limits.
