Udja Comments ComponentModulePlugin

Due to a distinct lack of comments and a high demand for a comments extension for 1.6 which can provide functionality which rivals that of jComments I created a simple but easily extended comments component+module+plugin combination. This has since expanded but I still intend on keeping it SIMPLE, not complex.

This enables you to use the comments module with non-content frontend pages, and the content plugin for content related pages. Making comments for things like Virtuemart/Download extensions etc a possibility.

- Manual email notification list for all comments being posted
- Improved manual spam protection using regex

Just downloaded after trying a couple of others. I needed a comments extension for a photography website. I needed something clean and easy. This ticks the boxes. It's self contained so doesn't need an external API (except for captcha), doesn't need signing up to any other service and contains no advertising.

I like the included CSS template as it makes the form look much nicer than not selecting it.

I'd like to see something like a PDF explaining the setup and customisation process. I'd say I am somewhere between a Joomla novice and intermediate and I worked it out OK. It would be nice to see some sample CSS templates, some input field to customise it or some guidance on how to tweak the included settings. Not sure if it's a bug or just my understanding of how to tweak it but I see the title displayed at the bottom of my Category Blog view so I've hidden the title.

So far so good. I really like it. It's well worth a try.

I have tried e few different comment components for joomla 1.6 and this is by far the best and easiest to use. Plus I found it quite easy to customise the look of the comments (baring in mind I am a developer). Thanks so much!

If you are looking for a very simple 'add comment' plugin, this is for you. Goes beyond easy, all you have to do is to download and enable and that's it.Well done developer.

I concur with the previous reviewer. Finding myself 'buggered', a line of code was sent by the author within hours of my airing the problem, with instructions for insertion, and Bob is once again my uncle and Fanny my aunt. All on a par with installation and use of the extension. Very simple; installed straight out of the box. Brilliant - and the man rides a bike. Thanks Andy!

This is a very simple, easy to set up and use commenting system for article comments in Joomla. Just installed the RC1, and other than a few minor bugs that I'm sure will be ironed out quickly, I am extremely satisfied. I do not need or want all the clutter that the other commenting systems have.

Thanks for the effort!
