Reviews

Nothing to prevent spam comments

I had to stop using this plugin because of too much spam. There isn’t a captcha (or similar) and it didn’t appear that akismet prevented spam either. Maybe there is a solution but I contacted their help desk that said it might be included on a future update.

But apart from that it did what was wanted – my main interest was in allowing reviews to upload an image with the review.

What a great discovery

This is exactly what I was looking for for sometime and today I have found it while searching for a different woo commerce plugin. Kudos to the developers.

Great plugin!

Yithemes has great support and know how to build the best out of the best plugins and themes!

good plugin but..

It needed some custom CSS to make it a little more prettier 🙂

kind of limited as functionality, premium being a must for people who want more than just simple review form + attachment, for me it’s enough (although, an upvote/downvote would be nice).

giving it 4 because of limited functionality and customization in the free version.

still a good plugin.
