we tried alot of extensions to have a litlle comment tools in our blog.
And after a lot of tests, we found JA Comments. Whoch is very stable, very easy to install and configure, and very simple to use every day.
So a very good component. Thank to the Joomlart Team for this good work!
Well done, joomlart !
although it's a paid extension, I feel lonely :-). I have submited ticket one week ago with no clear response. The reason is insufficient documentation of component. While product desc says " easy integration with other content components", there is not any docs related to that. Support has not answered my question about it, just pointing me to wiki, where is not even one word about that.
Becouse I have bought the subcription just and only becouse I need to integrate it with 3rd party componenty, It's very frustrating for me. And I could go into code (and will probably need to do that), but when I paid for component, I have expected, I'm going to save some time.
The extension itself looks quite good, it's sad that support takes my opinion about JA down.
Sure, it could be presented a little differently and more options for front-end appearance would be nice; but, hey, that applies to almost anything.
I can work with the way it looks because it does exactly what I need.
AND the service is fantastic.
I had a display problem on installation - they just went into my site and fixed it - no fuss, lovely responses and good service.
You want a comment/feedback box? This is the one!
My major unhappiness : No title/subjects , not support display in “tree”(childe and thread function in JAC)if you import from 3rd component , not migration friendly, support slow …..
1 No titles & NO tree display for import item
JA comments was not the most popular comment component, so when webmaster turn to JA comments, the comment title submitted by in other component will lose. What is more , I found without titles, the comments in the same threads , or called child comments in JA , could not display right in JA. The reader may not be given the relations of those comments. Some time, the debate / argument build by these relations was the most attractive part.
2 Not Migration friendly
JA comments was the only few comment component in the market. When I upgraded my joomla site , it did showed those comments in Jcomment in its import function , however, when I press the import button, it failed and told me 0 item was imported . I could not found any document on this issue.
3 support ?
T_T, I buy a develop member ship for $499. I did not get a pro services. Import trouble from Jcomment? Ok, you should turn to Jcomments. ………. At least , I thought they should provide a little info on this issue so that the client could figure it out themselves.
I paid the membership for I thought my visitor`s comments worth that price. However, JA failed me.
We are sorry, you seem to have had a difficult time. However, as i see JA Comment for J 1.6 is very active project with 38 fixes in the svn in these 13 days alone. We are still fixing the reported bugs.
Last update for J 1.6 version was 3 months back and has not been updated for the J 1.6.2 and J 1.6.3 versions. If you would check the J 1.6.2 changelog, you can see its a major release and has broken the then working version of the JA Comment 1.6 . You dont need to pay 499 $ for the extension alone please, its just 40-50$ only all backed by 7 days refund no question asked.
We have just released major updates for Joomla 1.6 for all the templates and some extensions, you may check the same on the update page of our site, It has taken up lot of time and we apologize for the same. You are welcome to ask for refund or further help, customer satisfaction is very important for us, thats the reason we are the only one who offer money back for electronic goods, no questions asked.
JA Comment installation didn't go so easy for me so I needed assistance. You can measure the level of success of a paid product by the level of support afterward. Joomlart provided professional level support with ticket system for any site concerns I had after installing JA Comment.
I now have a great product, and a site with commenting enabled.
1. I want it to automatically approve guest comment but there is no option in backend,
2. K2 Integeration hast some problems: like K2 Avatar does not show and Username does not link to K2 profile
3. the latest comment need to be more mature.
By the way I'm satisfied of this, Thank you
The comment system itself is a breeze to use and install, with a tremendous amount of options. It has a very smart looking front end (and back end) with nice roll-over graphics.
Please be aware that it does not support vBulletin avatars as listed above. The developer advised me that this was a mistake when documenting for Joomla extension.
Setup is a breeze and the scripts used and the overheads are very light.
The previous reviewer is certainly mistaken about the price. This extension is part of a bundle of different extensions.
I think that the developer must reconsider this price as someone who only wants to get the comments system (and no other component of yours) cant have it.
Thanks for the review, glad you liked it. Actually, the price is not component specific and its the price for the Extension club membership, with which one gets access to all premium extensions presently offered and coming up. Pricing individual extensions might prove more costly to users wishing to use more than one extension for their Joomla! sites.
