not suitable for WMPL / Multi-language
I am pretty convinced that when I installed Site Reviews (long time ago) it said: “Multilingual Support: Integrates with Polylang and WPML allowing you to assign reviews to all languages of a multilingual page.”
Now, the plugin mentions: “(note: translating reviews is not supported)”
I reached out to the developer who wrote back: “However, translating reviews themselves is not supported with WPML or Polylang. This is because Site Reviews uses custom tables to store the rating information and assignments of each review, and uses highly optimised custom SQL queries to manage thousands and even tens of thousands of reviews with very little performance impact to your website. The downside to this is that it makes it more difficult to allow WPML or Polylang translations of reviews without impacting performance when you start to get a lot more reviews.”
For me, having a multi language site with WPML, this is a major setback. So think (at least) twice when considering Site Reviews.
Other than that, the plugin works but you almost have to be a developer and play a lot with the fields/toggles to use to get a proper result. Once done, never touch it again.
