YITH WooCommerce Advanced Reviews


Add a histogram table to the reviews of your products, such as you see in most trendy e-commerce sites, and give users the possibility to attach images to their reviews. Keep up-to-date about most trendy products thanks to the new options conceived to manage an advanced review system.

Detail, feedback and customisability in one plugin only

YITH Woocommerce Advanced Reviews offers something more than the traditional displaying of product review and rating.
It allows your users to add a title and one or more attachments to their reviews. Furthermore, a summary is generated for each product with an indication of how many reviews have been written for each different rating.

Research states that other users’ reviews are the primary information, together with product price obviously, that drives them to buy an item or not. Let your users discover what other users say about the product.

Don’t understand the hate

I installed this plugin and configured as “verified purchase only” and it now does exactly what I need. Why do other shop owners not enable this? It’s a really nice review plugin!

Spam comments all over

Seemed to be a good plugin. Doing what it should do.
But soon after the install, the spam comments started coming in all over the website.
Unfortunately useless this way.


I seriously don’t understand why developers do a half-arsed job? I mean you might as well not do it at all then!

The biggest no-no and the reason i won’t purchase premium plugin is the fact that it won’t allow you to manually approve reviews and this plugin does very little to prevent spam because of that.
Other than that i like the way one can customise albeit the very limited attributes but still i was able to make it look the part of my site.

The deal breaker is of course the lack of manual approval which has forced me to give up on this plugin and uninstall it in the end. Such a pity because this has a potential but doesn’t feel like developers have any clue about providing a positive user experience.

If Your Site Breaks / 500 Server Error

I created an account just to leave this review. My WordPress admin displayed a 500 error when I installed this plugin. Long story short, this plugin does NOT work with php7, but it does work with php5.6.

Php7 is nearly twice as fast as php5.6, and is also much safer. I saw someone said it’s making their site slow. That would be why.

So, if your site gives a 500 error after activating this plugin, your options are to: either use this plugin and run php5.6, or disable this plugin and run php7. If you really want to use this plugin, you can change your php version from cPanel >> PHP Version Manager.

Keep in mind what I said about using php5.6. If you use this plugin, you are effectively slowing your site down tremendously and exposing yourself to potential security issues. I for one am finding another review plugin.

*I haven’t used the plugin so I couldn’t provide a legit rating, but I think 2 stars is fair considering it doesn’t work with the newest version of PHP*.
