    Any idea when we can expect a v3.2.4 compatible "reviews" plugin ". It is badly needed for 2 customers...

    It would seem that our concept of "today" differs quite a bit...:) Any news?

    Yep sorry. It's almost ready. Just a couple of tweaks to make it more nice.

    Thanks for your patience.

    Twelve days later, the patience is being stretched, severly stretched...

    The absolute silence on this is not just deafening, it's also becoming seriously offensive...

    Hi Vasily, thanks, much appreciated. It would be great if a notification could go to the listing holder as well as soon as the review has been posted (auto or after approval). Here's why. I've been working with "customers" in some shape or form for over 35 years by now, and know a little about how their mind works. Universally, customers are lazy, they want everything with as little effort as possible from their side. One of the big problems a directory company has is renewing their listings. Time and time again the customers want to know if the listing (ie his money) is performing. On a directory listing, they want to know if people are looking at their listing. Simple things like an email notifiying them of a new review proves to them that their money is indeed working and their listing isbeing noticed, without it laying an extra burden on the directory holder. It is a simple and very effective way of making listing renewals so much easier (this is the same reasoning behind the enquiry form on www.cretefocus.com). I think this functionality would be well worth the effort of putting in. The body of such an email could be a language key maybe so that it can be adapted for individual sites, reading something like "a new review of your business has been posted on [listing URL]...."
