After some searching and testing I found this simple plugin to be really great tool for a WordPress site developer. It's easy to start using, implement and modify. It's search engine friendly. And even though it's free, Nate-the-plugin-developer was very helpful with my questions. 🙂 I would say the only downside is the very brief documentation. Couple of pointers to people using this plugin: Check the looks of the /reviews page created by the plugin. You can override the default with a new archive-grfwp-review.php template file. Check also the individual review page at /review/your-single-review-url especially if you have been using review categories. You can override the default with a new single-grfwp-review.php template file. These pages will be indexed by search engines and they might look odd in your theme.

I've tried many review/testimonial plugins but this one is perfect for my needs. I build and design websites with WordPress for my clients, most of the time I want to incorporate reviews into a sites existing styling, for it to be easy to configure and be comfortable for users to add content. This plugin fits my description very well and has all features I need and allows me to extend it easily if I require. It's also completely transparent in styling and follows the WordPress admin UI style perfectly resulting in bare minimum learning curve for users. This plugin is a refreshing change to many plugins on the repository, clean, lean and just enough features. Thank you.
