NEEDED: WordPress 'review site' plugin

Discussion in 'WordPress' started by ih82lose, Jul 18, 2008.

    Hello

    I am looking for a plugin for wordpress that allows reviews. I would like to have several reviews, with multiple criteria where the data can be compared against the others. Then be able to use the results across the whole site. I hope this makes sense.

    Say for example:
    Joes Dating site:

    Total= 17

    Cost: 5
    Ease of use:7
    popularity:5

    ________________

    Second Dating site:

    Total= 18

    Cost:9
    Ease of use: 6
    popularity: 3

    _________________

    third Dating site:

    Total=26
    SEMrush
    Cost: 7
    Ease of use: 10
    popularity: 9

    Then on home page:

    TOP 3 DATING SITES!
    1. third Dating site: Total=26
    2.Second Dating site: Total= 18
    3.Joes Dating site: Total= 17


    PS

    I know of:
    http://www.dangrossman.info/wp-dg-review-site/
    http://paulgoscicki.com/projects/wp-movie-ratings/

    But they don't do everything I want done.

    How about this one? It's the SB Review Plugin.

    http://www.sourcebench.com/toolbox/sb_review-wordpress-review-plugin/

    I have not used it but here is a list of the features (as listed on the website):

    • Define categories of ratings you wish to collect. Rating is from 1 to maximum that you define. Setting minimum doesn't make much sense.
    • Modify the order in which rating categories appear.
    • Very basic fraud prevention.
    • Globally enable/dispable plugin per wordpress category
    • Enable/disable given rating category per wordpress category
    • Set weight of each rating category per wordpress category. For example one rating category has more importance in given wordpress category..and less in other.
    • Set description per wordpress / rating category pair.
    • There is default template initially used by all rating categories. Can define additional templates for display and set it wordpress category based.
    • Collect ratings along with every new comment.
    • Recalculating ratings on deleting comments
    • Display ratings collected for each comment.
    • Display average rating from all collected ratings for a post.
    • Display the number of positive or negative ratings for each post (based on weight of rating categories).
    • Display post score rating. Weighted avarage of all ratings to use as ultimate rate for a post. Uses meta store, hence is much faster as calculation is made on comment added and not each user request.
    • Manage rating categories easily from your WordPress admin options tab.
    • Define HTML to appear before and after rating labels and inputs easily from your WordPress admin options tab — no complicated function arguments.
    • Drop-in to any existing blog to add ratings. Simply doesn’t display anything for comments or posts that didn’t include ratings.
    • Flexible enough to be used as a post rating system, or to drive an entire rating & review site built on WordPress, depending entirely on how you customize the output.
    • Fixed some XSS and slashes issues with original plugin

    Please take a look at WP DG Review Site again. I've renamed it to WP Review Site for a simpler name, and it now has some new features:

    http://www.wpreviewsite.com

    It can now sort by top rating (with weighted averages so a 1 vote 100% rating isn't ranked above a 5 vote 90% rating) which I think is what you wanted.

    There is a $18 discount for Digital Point members:

    I've been looking for a similar plugin - the ones I've seen just rate the post and don't compare it against others or have cumulative results.
    If you try it, please let us know how it goes (and what version of WP you have).
    Thanks

    After trying out a few of the different plugins out there, I've found the best Wordpress Review Plugin is WFReview. They've recently updated and included suggestions from users. They have fantastic support and a member forum that has a quick response. The other plugins were either buggy, no support, or just didn't have options I wanted. I would use this one before trying any others for sure! Don't waste your time or money!!!!!

    Have you tried MyReviewPlugin? I have decided ti buy this after weeks of research online. Find it much better than WPReviewEngine and ReviewPluginForWordpress.

    Let me know if you have any questions.

    Since there's no demo site for the WF Review could someone using the plugin please share a link to their site? How do developers expect to sell their "wares" if they won't provide a demo???? Not good marketing (lazy way out) and I don't want to waste my time watching promo videos filled with hype or info I don't need. The "sample user sites" (2) listed on the web page are dead links which is also not a good sign and makes me wonder about the developer. Since some of you claimed how great it is could I please see your site?

    Thanx

    Sorry to say this, but I hate it when I search google, find a forum and see threads full of links to sites that want to sell me.

    Why isnt anybody able to say: Have used plugin A not working for me because of x and y. Also used plugin B. Nice plugin but I desperately need function Z. So I used plugin C. That does not have K but has Z and most of the other features....

    Just signed up for this forum because this is now the 5th link full of bs

    Searching for gallery plugins I found a website that has reviewed all the wordpress review plugins

    Sorry for my bad mood up there. I think it is just annoying to always find the same links with very few information.

    Are there any review themes or plugins out there for Wordpress that aren't for automated affiliate "review" sites?

    I'd like to put an actual review site up, but am having a heck of a time trying to find anything out there that's not made for affiliate review sites.
