WP Customer Reviews

Version 3.0.5 Lite is now available

October 10, 2015

Earlier this month we released the next major version of WP Customer Reviews – version 3.0. We are now up to 3.0.5 after addressing some bugs and adding a few small features. There is an upgrade bug that’s affecting .1% or less of users, so be sure you are using the check box “show reviews on this page” on the main business reviews page of your website (along with the short code) to prevent the upgrade issue

Customer Reviews & Testimonials Plugin for WordPress

There are many sites that are crawling for user-generated reviews now, including Google Places and Google Local Search. WP Customer Reviews allows you to setup a specific page on your blog to receive customer testimonials.

WP Customer Reviews allows your customers and visitors to leave reviews or testimonials of your services. Reviews are Microformat enabled (hReview).

  • All submissions are moderated, which means that YOU choose which reviews get shown.
  • Reviews are displayed to visitors in a friendly format, but search engines see the hReview microformat (and RDFa soon!)
  • NEW! Reviews now show up on your Google Places page as well as in the Search Engine Results Page in Google :)
  • Multiple anti-spam measures to prevent automated spambots from submitting reviews.
  • Provides a configurable Business hCard, to help identify all pages of your site as belonging to your business.
  • Completely customizable, including which fields to ask for, require, and show.
  • Works with caching plugins and all themes.
  • Includes an external stylesheet so you can modify it to better fit your theme.
  • Reviews can be edited by admin for content and date.
  • Support for adding your own custom fields with one click.
  • The plugin can be used on more than one page.
  • Supports both Business and Product hReview types.
  • Shows aggregate reviews microformat (hReview-aggregate).
  • Fast and lightweight, even including the star rating image. This plugin will not slow down your blog.
  • Validates as valid XHTML 1.1 (W3C) and valid Microformats (Rich Snippets Testing Tool).
  • And much more…
