In short: this installs like a dream. The default layout works on most sites. You can easily put an over-ride or even customize your own theme for it. It works with KCaptcha, so a simple, clean captcha system that doesn't scare off commenters.
Gravatars work on older versions and I see they are coming for newer versions. Voting? Sure. Specialized permissions? Absolutely. RSS? Works great. Want to customize your smilies? Tree or flat display? It is all here. I've used this on some big production sites and had nothing but joy.
THANK YOU to the developer for updating this component!
Considering this is a free release a big thank you goes out to the developer SMART and everybody who helped...donation coming soon
Easy integration with other extensions.
Excellent performance and resistance to stress.
In general, it is almost perfect comment. Thank you for the time that you invested in the development of this excellent product.
I want to rate the component so much higher...but many sites are just absolutely crippled without this functioning properly on the latest version of Joomla.
Our websites RELY SOLEY ON USERS SPENDING TIME ON MY SITE ARGUING AND COMMENTING....and I dont think that I am alone.
Without a functional commenting system my users read and leave...traffic is dropping on our new Joomla 1.7/2.5 installs.
I dont want to abandon a component I use and LOVE on many sites but what can be done? I dont want to put off upgrading any longer.
Please release the a version compatible with the latest Joomla versions
