How to Install and Use Review Press

Review Press is a very basic plugin that allows you to set up a simple reviews section for your website. It adds your reviews as a custom post type and allows you to set up review categories and tags. This plugin might be a good choice if you already have a blog, but want to add a review component to it.

There are promises of more features in a future version, including Amazon affiliate product linking, but for now, it’s a very basic plugin. If you’re looking for the basics, it might be right for you.

The developer’s website can be found here:

Add Amazon ASIN Information (NOTE: This feature doesn’t work yet)

At the time of writing this tutorial, the Amazon ASIN support is not included in the plugin. However, there is space to put an Amazon product ASIN (you’ll find it on any Amazon product page) and you can also add a rating for the product. This is likely in preparation for future versions of the plugin, but again, this information won’t be added to the blog through the current version of the plugin.
