h-review is a simple, open format for publishing reviews on the web. h-review is one of several open microformat draft standards suitable for embedding data in HTML/HTML5 on the web.
Here is a simple review example:
<div class="h-review"> <h1 class="p-name">Microformats: Worth the hassle?</h1> <blockquote> <a class="p-item h-item" href="http://microformats.org">Microformats</a> are the simplest way to publish structured data on the web. </blockquote> <p> <data class="p-rating" value="5">★★★★★</data> Published <time class="dt-reviewed" datetime="2013-06-12 12:00:00">12<sup>th</sup> June 2013</time> by <a class="p-reviewer h-card" href="http://example.com">Joe Bloggs</a>. </p> <div class="e-description"> <p>Yes, microformats are undoubtedly great. Unless of course you want to mark up volcanoes with fax machines, in which case schema.org is better suited to your needs.</p> </div> </div>
h-review is a root class name that indicates the presence of an h-review.
p-name, p-item, p-reviewer and the other property classnames listed below defined elements as properties of the h-review.
See microformats2 parsing specification to learn more about property class names.
h-review properties, inside an element with class h-review:
p-name- name of the review
p-item- thing been reviewed e.g. business or person (h-card), event (h-event), place (h-adr or h-geo), product (h-product), website, url, or other item (h-item).
p-reviewer- person who authored the review, optionally a nested h-card
dt-reviewed- date time of when the review was written
p-rating- value from 1-5 indicating a rating for the item (5 best).
p-best- define best rating value. can be numerically lower than worst.
p-worst- define worst rating value. can be numerically higher than best.
e-description- the full text written evaluation and opinion of the reviewer
p-category- freeform categories or tags applied to the item by the reviewer
u-url- review permalink URL
h-review is a microformats.org draft specification. Public discussion on h-review takes place on h-review-feedback, the #microformats #microformats chat channel on irc.freenode.net, and microformats-new mailing list.
h-review is ready to use and implemented in the wild, but for backwards compatibility you should also mark h-reviews up with classic hReview 0.4 (in progress) classnames.
(stub, add any property explanations here)
Examples in the Wild
- … add any h-review examples you find in the wild
For backward compatibility, you may wish to use classic hReview 0.4 (in progress) classnames in addition to the more future-proof h-review properties, for example:
<div class="h-review hreview"> <h1 class="p-name fn">My great review</h1> </div>
Microformats parsers should detect classic properties and parse them as microformats 2 properties. If an "h-review" is found, don't look for an "hReview" on the same element.
Compatibility root class name: hreview
Properties: (parsed as p- plain text unless otherwise specified)
fn- parse as p-name of the item being reviewed (p-item h-item p-name)
photo- parse as u-photo of the item being reviewed (p-item h-item u-photo)
url- parse as u-url of the item being reviewed (p-item h-item u-url)
reviewer- including compat root vcard in the absence of h-card
dtreviewed- parse as dt-
description- parse as e-
rel=tag- parse as p-category
rel="self bookmark"- parse as u-url. note that
relattribute value is treated as a space separated set, thus any presence of "self" and "bookmark" within such a set in a rel value is accepted.
Note: The hReview 0.4 (in progress) format has three properties which make use of
rel attribute, these are
tag, permalink (via the
bookmark values) and
license. Microformats 2 parsers SHOULD map these URLs into the page scoped rel collection.
