CIOpenReview is free, open source software for creating product or service review websites, written in PHP using the CodeIgniter framework (http://codeigniter.com) and released under the GPLv2 license (see the 'LICENSE' file for more details).
CIOpenReview is a fork of the original OpenReviewScript which was abandoned as of 2012. There have been several changes to the original script:
- CIOpenReview now uses CodeIgniter 3.0.6 and has updated requirements (see Server Requirements)
- CIOpenReview uses MySQLi extentions and works on PHP 7.0!
- You can now rate in 1/2 star increments
- Debug information is stored in a table on the DB
- Bootstrap-based Theme
- User password hashed with password_hash() (Much more secure)
Newer features are in the works and I am open to any suggestions:
- Adding admin and user logging
- Improved click-through stats (currently show total click for lifetime of review)
- Language translations
- Improvements in user security
- More themes
- Automatic Social Media submissions on new reviews.
IMPORTANT: This software is currently beta, there will probably be some bugs/issues. Please report them ASAP and I will get them cleared up.
- PHP version 5.2.4+ (PHP 7.0 COMPATIBLE)
- MySQL 5.1+ or MariaDB 10+
- PHP GD Library
- PHP cURL Library (libcurl)
Also required for Installation:
- An FTP client / Shell Access to be able to upload/download script
