As my needs and requirements increased and JComments more seems not suitable (Interoperability with other Components, Templates, Spamprotection), I've tried CComments. This is now several years ago. First I also was afraid on the subscription (bad experience with Docman).
Since this time I never regretted the subscription or the switch to CComments.
Daniel always try to be quick with compatibility versions and he focus on stable releases. Now the V5 also seems great and the idea of a "Core" Version should give many people a good opportunity for trying.
For "just" a component and based on "small" yearly fee.. It's amazing.
You'll receive answers within 24 Hours and he take care of any bug, question, request.
I know that some would complain about the release cycle and it should get more often a "new version", but I prefer a stable release with features which are bulletproof (Usability, etc pp), than thousand shine useless stuff.
If you search for a comment component and you focus on long term usability/support and a support you can count... Then CComment is for you.
Very satisfied, not only the Ccomment is the best component I have seen for Joomla!2.5, but the support is just great.
I also used the default import function of the component, and that also worked perfectly. I could read in all the comments from another comments component.
I have a multi language website in English and Dutch. I have many visitors, so nothing must go wrong. It works flawlessly. So a great compliment to the builder of this component. Excelent.
Installation was easy but I ran into some issues with the migration of comments from Jomcomment into Compojoom Comment, I contacted support and they quickly resolved my issues.
If you want user comments on your website I can highly recommend you to use Compojoom Comment!
Not only are there tons of a additional add-ons to install, the support (which u never get these days coz its usually random drones instead of the actual original coder) is fantastic. Daniel spent heaps of time trying to resolve my issue (which turned out to be a memory limit from sourcerer and not even releated to compo) and was very helpful all the way through. This just goes to demonstrate what kinda of awesome support is behind the product.
The comment system is superb, the only thing i have but that can be solved on your own through simple html/css overrides you can make easily from the backend yourself in a custom file they provide u with.
This and nonumber are my favourite coders now.
After having compared many other commenting extentions around, I can now say that this is the best for me.
New users naturally look at the free extensions first and the statistics prove that at the end of the day most of them stick to a free extension.
I have tested several comments extensions, which some of them either lack essential features, boast unnecessary features, didn't work how they supposed to do, have annoying bugs or simply didn't appeal to me.
Compojoom Comment (former JoomlaComment) was the most convincing comment extension. First of, there is a wonderful written pdf documentation available for download, which should clear up most of the questions beginners may have. After installing it (like all other extensions), there appears a new item in the component drop-down list, which splits in 6 sub-items/tabs (Manage comments, Settings, Import, Maintenance, About, Live update).
"Manage comments" shows a list of all comments with detailed informations. Compojoom Comment supports many components apart from Joomlas own com_content. You can choose from what component the comments should be displayed. This is very usefull in case you have for instance K2 installed and want only to manage the K2 comments. Many other components are supported, such like myblog, jevents, docman, easyblog, adsmanager, hotspots, virtuemart, phoca download and many more.
In "Settings" you can easily select for what component Compojoom Comment should be enabled. Once selected, there appears 5 tabs(General, Security, Posting, Layout, Integrations).
You can set general settings like including/excluding categories, improving the security by for instance install a reCAPTCHA, exclude guests from posting, manage a censorship black list, ban list, assign different user groups, enable gravatar support, use akismet spam protection, enable avatars and more. Nested comments are supported and can also be disabled.
Compojoom Comment's Layout settings are awesome. 9 templates, 5 stylesheets and 7 emoticon packs are included. People with some html and css knowledge can easily make a custom template in the backend via a smart built-in template override function. Unfortunately there is no option to add custom emoticons in the backend. You must directly add them via Compojoom Comment's index.php file.
If you were using a different comment extension and want to change to Compojoom Comment, you can import all your comments via the Import option. If your old comment extension is supported, you can easily import your comments with one step. If it's not supported, then you have to do the mapping manually. If you are not experienced enough to do this yourself, you can get help in the compojoom commtents support forum.
The "maintenance" item displays the current used Joomla version, PHP version and Database version.
Under the "Live update" option you can update Compojoom Comment to the lastest version if possible.
Compojoom Comments comment rating feature is unique compared to its competitors. Instead of summing up all positive and negative ratings and displaying the overall value, it works excatly like the popular rating system of Wordpress, which is awesome. Negative and positive ratings aren't summed up together, which means you always know how many positive and negative ratings a comment did recieve.
With Compojoom Comments visitors always have the option to use a comment title. Unlike some other comment extensions it is not possible to disable the comment title field in the backend. One have to remove the code from the core files. Hopefully an option to disable the title will be integrated in the next version.
There are several plugins for Compojoom Comments available and a module which displays the lastest and most commented comments in a module field. There are also a lot of language packs available for download.
Last but not least a few words about the support. I never had to ask for support because Compojoom comment just works. It's easy to use and the documentation is good. The forum is publicly visible and my impression is that the support is awesome since problems were always addressed by the developer himself. I had a few email converstions with the developer and he is a very very nice guy :)
Bottom line, if you are looking for a high quality comment extension that boasts many usefull features with excellent support and that just works, then Compojoom Comment is the right extension for you.
But what i am extremely impressed with is the support. That guy daniel responded to my forum question within 5 (five minutes) and practically stayed with me for hours getting down to the bottom of my issue.
I recommend this fantastic comment system to anyone using Joomla 1.5 or 1.7.
Important that there are many different styles, so if you don't know CSS, you can just choose the one you like. The other components hardly are able to boast in this. You can also change smilies :)
Definitely worth the money!
