ReviewIt is a WordPress and BuddyPress theme that provides you with powerful review and community features.

FULL BUDDYPRESS/BBPRESS THEME (not required though!)

Nowadays any theme will work with BuddyPress/bbPress, but ReviewIt is actually built as a BuddyPress/bbPress theme meaning it styles all the BuddyPress/bbPress pages to match the theme. However if you don’t want to use BuddyPress and/or bbPress, no problem, the theme doesn’t require it and works just fine without it!


The theme is integrated with the powerful GD Star Rating plugin to bring you the following review features seamlessly:

  • Both the post author and visitor can rate posts
  • Users can rate posts from the top of the review, via the comments or both
  • Multiset rating (multiple rating criteria for individual posts)
  • Sort reviews by date, title, site and user ratings
  • Vote up/down other users comments


The theme comes in two distinct colours, dark and light to suit your particular site.


Once the theme is activated it automatically installs the necessary pages so you can get the theme set up in under a minute. Additionally you can install the demo content to get the theme looking exactly like the live preview site.

SEO (Search Engine Optimization)

SEO is top priority with this theme and is vital for a top Google ranking. Important content is placed before the sidebar regardless of the sidebar position so it is crawled first by search engines. Headings are wrapped in heading tags (h1, h2, h3 etc) to tell the search engine they are important. The theme also uses heavy internal linking through related posts, primary navigation menus, sidebar and footer navigation.


This theme comes with an extensive help file that explains how to set up every aspect of the theme. If you encounter any problems or just have a question after purchasing the theme head over to the dedicated support site at


Here’s a list of some of the other theme features that were not mentioned above:

  • 7 custom widgets (GP Recent Comments, GP Review Boxes, GP Review Lists, GP Post Boxes, GP You May Like, GP Review/Post Entries and GP Latest Members widgets)
  • Cufon fonts
  • Front-end login, register and profile pages
  • Add custom review tags for easy categorizing of reviews
  • Custom post/page/category options
  • Fully localised (translation files)
  • Image resizing
  • Unlimited Sidebars
  • Degrades gracefully if javascript is disabled
  • Compatible in all major browsers
  • BuddyPress/bbPress ready
  • WooCommerce ready

Note: This theme uses custom post types for review pages instead of normal posts. Not all plugins work with custom post types but most do now.

We’ve honestly been looking for a great theme since we started over a year ago. Our founder is very picky and wanted all of these features that most themes don’t have. 200 themes later, we found ReviewIt which was almost EXACTLY what he wanted. It’s like there was some mind reading going on. The documentation is great! It’s really nice to see that since most themes are just a hodgepodge mess. Nice coding too, a great step up from our old site. Our writers were really excited and our fans are too. Thanks!

Great Theme! Permanent updates and dedicated support staff! 5 stars

Bought this a few months ago. Couldn’t be happier. Does everything I want, and a lot more. Support is great to. Nice work.

Great theme. Used it to create a new Recruitment Agency Review site. Highly recommended for beginners.

Bought this theme a while ago and I’m still happy with it, responses to questions on the Ghostpool Support Forum are always answered very quickly. Good job Ghostpool! – DigitalVinyl
