The WordPress Review plugin allows to add custom fields to your Review form (besides the default title, content, user name and e-mail fields).

Custom Fields Position

First thing we need to do is to define, where custom fields will be placed to. Navigate to Admin Dashboard → CM Reviews → Settings. Under the Review Form tab find the option Custom fields position. This option allows to define the position of custom fields in relation to the review title and content. It has 3 options.
