A long time I use this channel for information. Here at Jed is a good place to find great apps. This is one of them. I really was amazed how a company could provide something as precious and precise as this one.
Be sure, so I start with the bill Doatorium, thanks you received in the form of money. (Promise registered here, huh :)). Seriously.
The site addresses the issue of environmental sustainability and donations.
I was so grateful that I would put them as one of the partners of the site. I could do this?

Thank you.
And as I say to friends ... when they come to Brazil let me know.
My wife and I do a great Stroganoff Shrimp :)!

This one of the best commenting system for Joomla. Easy to install, many options and very nice design and responsive layout.

I find Komento extremely complicated. There is a truck load of configuration options, most of which are directed (probably) to high-end websites. However, we will never know because there is no documentation. Well... almost none. It is hard to guess what each option does or does not do, when it actually does something, which is a crapshoot at the best. Was it a configuration issue? Bug? Your setup? You'll never know.
Support is quite responsive and nice, but they can't compensate for the lack of documentation. The user interface is bulky and consumes way too much space. The editor is OK, but why not just use the standard Joomla one? Why re-invent the wheel?
In addition it is not lightweight. It will most definitively slow down your website. In summary, if you have a big website, are techie and have lots of time, go for it. On the other hand, if you are just starting and need a quick commenting plugin / module, this is most definitively not for you. You have been warned.

Thank you for your valuable feedback and we take every feedback very seriously! I have to agree that we are lacking on the documentation part for the settings but most of the settings that you see in the component comes with a great amount of tooltip when you hover over each of the settings.

As for slowing down your website, we have not received any feedback from our users that slows their site down, so far. But if you have any issues at all, please feel free to post them on our support forums :)

We would really like to hear more from you and we hope that we could work together and get things straighten out.

Thanks again!

This is a very simple to understand extension especially since I am not a computer type person, it is hard for me to understand how to work with a website. So this extensions are very easy to use and they do help your business if customers need you to reply or call and why they need you to contact them is like a voicemail in your own website.

I tried this out of necessity, as there simply isn't a 3.x comment system for articles that otherwise comes close to doing what it's supposed to do. This one still has holes, like the captcha is lacking, as its default is useless, along with recaptcha. Maybe the author needs to add keycapthca and other image based capthca's, which is the current web standard. Overall... a very easy system to install, good options to control and manage comments. With Jcomments out for 3.x, this one seems the best available.

I have a problem in IE and the team answer very fast at my ticket.
WOW, you worked quickly and efficiently despite the difficulties posed by the protection of the site.
Perseverance, professionalism are your trademarks.
Thank you for your patience and thank you for setting what was wrong.

It's a nice looking comment form and has many features but it will devastate your site in terms of seo. Even though it looks sharp, I uninstalled it the moment I ran pagespeed and yslow. If seo is not an issue then this is a very attractive comment form.
Owner's reply

Thank you very much for the compliments and feedback! We have addressed this issue internally and we'll be posting an update shortly to address this :)

We have downloaded the free version for testing purpose and little we knew it would be: simple, fast, reliable, worryless, basically Easy, and indeed they deserve their name "Easy".
It took us 10 minutes to play around with the configuration and try it out on 2 existing pages, we didnt even had to modify a thing afterward, litterally 1-2 Go.
Highly recommended, and if you wonder how good it is then try the free version you will drop everything else on the spot.

Komento is a very, very impressive free comment tool. It's very robust with numerous options including capatcha. Comments are also written into HTML so good for your SEO as well.

About 2 hours ago I installed version 1.5.3100 free. It took only about 30 mins to completely set it up and integrate it on to a standard joomla article. I had a minor problem and posted a message on the forum (Sunday my time) and surprisingly, my question was answered within a very short time... turns out I just didn't read through the settings as thoroughly as I should have.... Anyway, it is up & running and just the best.

This extension looks to be pretty amazing. I'll just say quickly that I believe this is on the only one that does the import right from the DB. All others import from other commenting systems. This is an EXCELLENT feature and the real reason why I went with Komento. After reading the other reviews and the support I got, I was totally right! Amazing job guys!

I have tried almost all the commenting systems, from jcomments, udja comments, sli comments and every other extensions. This one looks the best without any tweaks and looks even better with a little tweaking. It has the power of jcomments and looks good too and the support is incredible, i had a problem with the plugin and reported it on the site and they cleared it in five minutes! identified that the problem was caused due to the conflict with rocket theme mission control admin template.
The people behind it are cool!

Very nice opinions of component by user reviews convinced me to try it. Yes, it has many, many features, but do we really need it all? I deactivated a bunch of features and when I check the requests through firebug, page speed, I see around 60+ http requests added to page. It's not lightweight as it says. It looks nice in frontend and backend, but it's more important that it adds much delay to page load time. And lastly not working with the jch_optimize plugin.
