Full list of features:
Lots of designs and combinations to choose from
Exclusive review Gutenberg Blocks
Unlimited Affiliate Buttons
Translatable into any language
Add reviews to posts and custom posts
Powerful Widget with lots of options
Valid review rich snippet schema markup inbuilt to show review data in search results. Note: It is impossible to force Google to show review snippets in searches. They changed how it all works and even if you have 100% valid schema, they won’t show it in the results any more, as spammers abused the system for years. This lead to them clamping down on it hard and the algorithm only showing it some times (Notice how you don’t see many review snippets in searches any more these days?).
Inbuilt gallery option
Default Options to save time when adding new reviews
Use any custom icon for the reviews
Use any image for the reviews
Set option fonts for your review boxes
Comes with FontAwesome 5 integrated and can be turned off in plugin options
Pick from 3 different animation styles for when criterias come into screen view
Select between editor only/visitor only/editor + visitor reviews
Visitor rating option
Let’s Review API allows you to easily grab the final score, final score subtitle and review color to add integration into any theme. Zeen, Valenti and 15Zine themes have the plugin’s API integrated for extra functionality and plugin integration out-of-the-box, so that is how the scores can be shown on layouts outside the actual post (such as on the demo’s homepage). If you have no experience with code, you will need help from a developer to help you integrate it into whatever theme you may be using – as every theme is coded differently and it is impossible for the plugin to automatically auto-inject itself in post loops outside of the actual post page.
