Description

Review Content Type is a feature-rich, extendable and powerful WordPress review plugin allowing you to create professional looking review websites with ease.

Whether you’re an affiliate marketer or a blogger writing reviews of products, services or anything else, this plugin has you covered.

How this WordPress review plugin is different?

Unlike other WordPress review plugins that add review functionality to existing post types, this plugin adds new review custom post type along with related custom taxonomies instead.

Great review plugin for WordPress!!!

This is a terrific plugin. One has to make some changes to give it the look and feel of one's own website, but there is plenty of room for that. After translating and pasting the following code in my functions.php this plugin gives me all I was looking for: add_filter( 'get_the_archive_title', 'your_prefix_review_archive_title' ); function your_prefix_review_archive_title( $title ) { if ( is_post_type_archive( 'review' ) ) { return post_type_archive_title( '', false ); } return $title; } The code helps to get rid of the word Archives at the archive page. I use the plugin for reviews (what else?). I want Dutch entrepreneurs to start publishing videos. With only 24 million people in the world who can speak Dutch there is no real market for a commercial platform on video publishing for Dutch (and Flemish) speaking entrepreneurs. But I just want to do it. One should have a hobby right? This plugin makes it possible I can publish reviews for this niece audience. Thank you for that Chetan Chauhan! For Dutch who want to see it in action (or who want the Dutch language files): https://combron.nl/reviews/

Great! But few issues.

Hi there, I think the plugin is really useful and has a lot of potential. However, there's few issues: 1. The brand image is not aligned with the button, the image is shifted towards the left and it looks messy in my opinion. 2. Social media plugins see the 'pros and cons' and 'summary' as two different post therefore the social buttons appear twice. 3. After adding an image my footer broke and was overlaping with the footer. Please make sure that the summary is 'fixed'. Thanks and I hope you'll be able to make some improvements. Jakub

Brilliant review plugin

Allows for really customizable reviews, that integrates perfectly with WordPress / my chosen theme. Developer is very responsive to questions. Highly recommended.
