Major Features

Multiple Instances You can run an unlimited number instances of the review system on the same forum with same set of files! Each instance can have a different look and feel to it with the help of the customizable display blocks, custom fields and custom rating questions.

AJAX integration We used AJAX wherever we could to help reduce the page reloads, including adding/viewing comments and rating reviews

Automatic image resizing All images added to the review system will be resized and have a thumbnails generated. This will help reduce the page load time but not having to dowload the full image when you just need the thumbnail.

Images in WYSIWYG editor We added the vB WYSIWYG editor with the ability to add inline images into the review text so that you can create reviews that pop.

User or Staff reviews Different usergroups have different levels of permissions. Staff's reviews can be auto approved while user submitted reviews can be set to require approval. All reviews are created through an easy to use feature rich front end.

Front End and ACP Approval Review approval and editing can be done quickly through either the front end by moderators or in the ACP by adminstrators.
