The Everywhere add-on for JReviews extends the user review system functionality of JReviews to other Joomla components such as: business directories, galleries, e-commerce stores, file repositories, social networking and more.

Integration is convenient and incredibly powerful!

Manage all of your site's reviews and ratings with one system and a uniform, themeable look. You don't lose flexibility because the configuration for each component can be different:

  1. Multiple sets of rating criteria: each category in your component can have a different rating criteria set. For example, in a business directory, suppliers of services could have different rating criteria than suppliers of goods.
  2. Custom fields in reviews: you can use JReviews’ custom fields system for reviews to expand the review form by asking additional questions such as: date of purchase, pros/cons, experience with product, would you recommend?, etc. All the custom field types used for jReviews can also be used for jReviewsEverywhere in reviews.
  3. Comprehensive MyReviews page: Reviews submitted in all components are shown together in a user's MyReviews page and they link back to the appropriate component detail page.
  4. Moderate reviews in one place: All component reviews are moderated in the JReviews administration.

Important: The Everywhere add-on does not integrate with 3rd party component rating systems, it remains a separate rating system. For example, a top rated list for your 3rd party component will not use user ratings from Everywhere add-on. Also, the Everywhere add-on doesn't enable searching for user reviews in 3rd party components.
