Import Reviews from other plugins to WP Review Pro

WP Review Pro is built with the option to import your existing reviews from 6 of the most popular review plugins.

Importing reviews is easy and rarely causes trouble. But keeping any unforeseen circumstances in mind, we would recommend that you backup your website’s database just in case.

It’s important to know that the import process is irreversible. That means once you import your reviews from any other plugin to WP Review Pro, you cannot transfer the reviews back to the other plugin. But if you have a backup, you can always go back.

To make the backup, we recommend our superb backup plugin, My WP Backup Pro. A free version of the plugin is also available through the WordPress repository. Here is the link.

After you have backed up your website, you can proceed to import the reviews. Log into the admin area of your website, and navigate to Settings -> WP Review Pro.

On the next screen, navigate to the “Import Reviews” section and click it.

On the next screen, you will see the option of selecting the existing plugin which you want to import your existing reviews from. Click the drop-down menu to reveal the supported plugins.

Here is a list of the supported plugins. We will support more plugins in the future.

  • Yasr – Yet Another Stars Rating

  • Author hReview

  • WP Rich Snippets

  • Reviews

  • WP Product Review

  • GD Rating System

Select the plugin that you want to import reviews from, and click the “Import” button.

A confirmation box will appear that ask you to confirm the import. Click “Ok” to start the import.

Depending on how many reviews you have on your website, this may take a few seconds to a few minutes. Please do not close the browser, navigate away from the page, or refresh the page, as it may interfere with the transfer.

Once the transfer is complete, a small notification will appear on the top which will show how many reviews were imported. Since this is a demonstration, our confirmation shows that it imported 0 posts.

That’s about it. It literally takes a few clicks to have your reviews imported to WP Review Pro.
