Reviews v2.0 – Easy Digital Downloads allows visitors and customers of your website to review the downloads offered on your website quickly and easily.
Reviews v2.0 – Easy Digital Downloads extends the WordPress commenting engine so all review submissions are moderated and can be edited, which gives you full control of the reviews you’d like to display or hide.
The add-on comes with built in styling, making the reviews presentation beautiful yet simple. The CSS and HTML has been designed to work with any WordPress theme, making it exceptionally versatile.
All reviews include HTML5 microdata for Schema.org, allowing Google and other search engines to pick up and display the product reviews in search results.
Shortcodes are available to easily embed or reference reviews in posts or pages.
Several widgets are available as well for displaying featured reviews and recent reviews.
