Social networks have given new meaning to the everyday life of people. People count more on what others say about a product or service than what the providers claim. Online rating and review systems are born to satisfy this growing need.
There are some third party extensions on Joomla which can handle reviews for site contents but when it comes to properties, users need a more complete system in which they can have control over the rating options and review settings along with ACL.
The RPL Rating and Review add-on has been created for this purpose. It is fully integrated with the RPL core, calendar and booking add-on, and even the membership add-on.
Rating is usually used for vacation rentals but RPL has made it possible to show ratings for all listing types, even ‘for sale’. Users can comment on existing comments and their comments can be set to automatically show or become visible through moderation.
Users can rate properties based on the options set by the admin. The admin can set as many rating options as he desires like cleanliness, value for money, staff politeness, etc.
