This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.



With Reviewer you can create and manage reviews on your website. With just a few clicks the plugin is installed and you’ll have all you need to get started on writing reviews

No fuzz

The Reviewer core plugin is not meant to be a one-size-fits-all solution. It is pouring the foundation to build a house or even a skyscraper if you’d like.
This means that the plugin is designed to have all the core features you need to start writing and managing reviews, and the ability to extend these features to fit your exact needs.

Beautifully designed and coded

I take great pride in writing beautiful code and that can be seen in the Reviewer plugin. I know users (like you) don’t look at the code / don’t care about it, but this is one of the most important things to build a solid, stable and maintainable plugin. Trust me.


Every WordPress site works and looks differently.
looks: By default Reviewer brings you standard looking templates that should fit most themes. Want to up your game? you can override every template and make things look exactly how you want.
works: Need to modify how something works? The plugin is made to be easily extensible, and we have a ton of documentation that will also show how you can accomplish doing so.


We’ve extensively written documentation which can be found on

Feedback is welcome

Reviewer has launched in Feb 2017, which means that it is still a young plugin. Therefore all feedback, suggestions, feature requests and whatever is on your mind about hte plugin is more then welcome!

Looks good, but I was hoping for a solution that allowed visitors (the public) to write product reviews, not just the site owner.

I searched for a while to find a plugin that would allow me to have a separate section for reviews so I could reserve my posts section for blog articles only. This does the job nicely. I was able to point this plugins reviews archive page directly to my existing reviews page and then start adding reviews. The widgets are handy as well, I am able to put them in the side bar of other pages to advertise the reviews section. I would describe this plugin as simple and easy to set up. I had a couple of questions for the developers, they responded almost instantly and have resolved them for me and have been very helpful.

Jeroen is incredibly fast at responding to any queries and resolve any technical issues. The attributes section allows you to display any custom fields which can incorporate HTML.
