    CMS for review-website

    Hi guys!
    I'm looking for a good CMS to create review websites (where you can compare different providers of a service and let users write their own reviews)
    Do you know of any? Thx

    Check out www.review-script.com

    There is a private messaging plug-in coming out soon and you can see that here:

    user - test

    Hope that helps,

    That's a terrible demo. Someone needs a serious course in marketing.

    In phpLD users can submit articles (reviews) as well as comment on other user reviews.

    It's not a demo, it's the actual program. It's also not a sales or marketing site. Someone needs a serious course in figuring out the difference between a demo and a program.

    Obvious to blind freddy it is a program. Obvious to me the presentation is cr*p. They and a lot of script developers need some marketing presentation. It is called sizzle.

    Article Live is a great article script, and there's no reason you couldn't use it for a review site.

    How about using WordPress and Dan Grossman's Review plugin?

    @Kendothpro: How are you getting on with this? I'm looking for a review script myself and I was wondering if you'd come to any conclusions. Dan Grossman's Review plugin looks quite good, I wouldn't mind giving that a try.

    I'm having no luck here at all. Tim, I'd be keen to give your script a try but I can't see anything about a free trial or a money-back guarantee. I'm not going to part with cash just to see if it works for me - is there any way I can test this out without committing to a purchase?

    Hi Dave,

    One good way to find out if it will do what you want is to log into the admin area and set up some categories, review criteria, review items and the go to the user side, register, login, write a review and test drive the whole thing. If there is something you are unable to determine from doing that, let me know and we'll come up with a solution.

    Here is my current development site you can test out:

    http://www.trade-review.com/review/admin/

    user - webmaster
    pass - 4tugboat

    Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Thanks,

    Tim

    Well, after trying a number of options I'd have to say Tim's script at www.review-script.com could be the go. The only other script that was worth trying was much more expensive and overkill for most needs.

    Tim has been very helpful and professional to deal with. For most people I'd say his review script is definitely the best option.
