DragonByte Reviews is an advanced review system that allows you to get your users interacting with your forums on a new level

Uses

With a wide range of permissions, you can allow your users to create/rate reviews, and customize it to your liking. You can also setup separate instances of the review system with different rating questions, custom fields and a review front page look.

You can even tie the review system into any product system with a little custom work.

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

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.

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.

Very interesting. Willing to pay for one that does what I want.

Will this allow an admins/mods to create a bunch of product listings that users can then rate? I don't mind users creating their own reviews first, but I also want to be able to create a bunch of products (not that I'm selling) that I then want users to review/rate (sort of like Amazon reviews or other review sites ).

After the initial review/product is posted, are additional users then able to add their mini reviews with a rating? And if so, can those mini reviews be thumbed up or down and then listed according to how useful they are? (just like amazon)

Another good addition would be if we could include an affiliate link, or automatic affiliate link with redirect.

Some type of mass-import from a csv file could be useful in a pro version.

Right now no. The reviews are stand alone and users can rate/comment on them. I've had a couple requests for this kind of system on it, so I'm sure the next time I work on it I'll add something like that to it.

One question, how would the affiliate link work?

The one that Chris did had the ability to upload audio.(Only single file)
Maybe using jplayer for both single and multiple files. Other than that, I like this.

Thanks for the suggestion. I've added the request for audio files to our tracking tool. I'll look at adding it in the next feature release.

Thanks for posting this and I'm sorry about the problems. I should have a fix ready to release for this later on today.

Would the first post be the review and the following posts comments? I looked at your forum and it looks like all the info is within the post, no custom fields on there? I could build an importer for it but there would have to be a lot of clean up done after if you wanted it setup right.
