Development Update

I have had a bit of a change of heart, there will be some more 3.x releases.

Some things to expect in 3.0.8:

  • Some users have reported issues with user submitted reviews, so as well as investigating these issues I am cleaning up the submit review form.
  • The form for submitting comments and reviews now uses a star widget for rating instead of a text box (if enabled). I have chosen to use RateIt which is a jQuery plugin by Gidon.
  • If you only have one review, then the select category step is removed when writing a review.

3.0.7 Released

Simple Review 3.0.7 has been released (download). An upgrade is available for 3.0.6 users (download, unzip and then follow instructions).

Some new features as mentioned here.

  • New. Support for comments using Disqus.
  • New. Support for reCAPTCHA.
  • Fix. Category and Review image selector Joomla 1.6.
  • Fix. Backend review filter and pager issue.
  • Fix. Content plugins Joomla 1.6.
  • Change. The default comment template has been simplified and the orange has been removed.
  • Change. The default review listing template (category.css) has been changed and the alternating background colour has been replaced by a top and bottom border. This is due to not currently having nice transparent star icons.
  • Change. Categories and Reviews default to being published.
