Site Reviews

Description

Site Reviews is a complete review management solution for your website that is designed to work in a similar way to Amazon, TripAdvisor, and Yelp. The plugin provides blocks, shortcodes, and widgets, along with full documentation.

You can pin your best reviews so that they are always shown first, mark reviews as verified, require approval before new reviews are published, require visitors to be logged-in in order to write a review, send a custom notification when reviews are submitted, respond to reviews, and a lot more!

Site Reviews provides more features and options than almost every other free review plugin, and the support provided on the WordPress forum is excellent.

Installation

Minimum Requirements

  • MySQL 5.6 or greater
  • PHP 7.2 or greater
  • WordPress 5.8 or greater

Automatic installation

Automatic installation is the easiest option — WordPress will handle the file transfer, and you won’t need to leave your web browser. To do an automatic install of Site Reviews, log in to your WordPress dashboard, navigate to the Plugins menu, and click “Add New.”

In the search field type “Site Reviews,” then click “Search Plugins.” Once you’ve found it, you can view the plugin details such as the point release, rating, and description. Install it by clicking “Install Now,” and WordPress will take it from there.

Manual installation

Manual installation method requires downloading the Site Reviews plugin and uploading it to your web server with a FTP application. The WordPress codex contains instructions on how to do this here.

Updating

Automatic updates should work smoothly, but we still recommend you back up your site.

If you encounter issues with your reviews after an update, go to the Site Reviews Tools page and run the “Migrate Plugin” tool. That should return things to normal.

FAQ

How do I use Site Reviews?

Once Site Reviews is installed, you can read the “Getting Started” page by clicking the Help icon on the top-right corner of any of the Site Reviews admin pages.

Amazing that you get so much for free. Had no issues and will use again.

I've been accumulating reviews for years but never really knew how to make the most out of this valuable feedback. With this plugins lightweight yet powerful categorizing features I'm now able to display the best reviews on the right specific funnel landing pages for each of my products. This will add immense social proof while also giving my existing customers the spotlight they deserve for taking the time to leave a review. With its clever use of pagination of the long list of reviews it's loading my product pages very fast. The break down of ratings percentages in the summary shortcode a la Amazon is also very aesthetically appealing. Well coded and supported by the developer, I can't wait to try some of the future addons I can see the potential for with this plugin.

Without a doubt the best review plugin for WordPress. Clean code, developer-friendly, very customizable and reactive support to top it all. Thank you for providing such a gem!

From the way everything works and is displayed, to just using it and making the changes you want. I like this plugin very much. I wish it wasn't so difficult to "change the color" of the star. Download this, upload that, activate this and save this.. it's insane.
